#NationalCoffeeDay x Sally Hansen

edited-national-coffee-day-sally-hansen-1-6

I’m always up for trying a new coffee spot, and I just recently fell in love with Birch coffee after being introduced by a friend. To celebrate #NationalCoffeeDay, I thought it would be a fun idea to collaborate with Sally Hansen to create a coffee bean-inspired nail look. I worked with the lovely Madeline Poole for a nail art style that was both wearable and high fashion at the same time. Together we came up withsomething really quirky and cute, but super beautiful and subtle at the same time. So here is the result of our shoot in Long Island City at the Birch Coffee. It’s a super industrial feeling coffee spot, so totally Instagrammable. It’s also so chill, so I can be sure that I cna focus here to get a lot of work done. With coffee at my table, of course, and on this day . . . with coffee on my nails!

My nails always complete my look, and I love switching up my nail art game. Sally Hansen’s warm color palettes for this fall inspire me so much, and resonate perfectly with my favorite things to do this season . . . like cozy up with a hot coffee and a fireplace.

THE MIRACLE GEL

My friends always grab my hands, and go WOAH. Sometimes my nails are a bright orange. Other days, a metallic silver. Sometimes you’ll find I’m bold blue during the day, and then have a swipe of nude nail polish for night. It’s that easy for me. I LOVE to work my nail polish into my look. I’m eclectic, and I like my colors and nails to be fun, but still chic and sophisticated. Sally Hansen has just updated their Miracle Gel collection, and I am beyond obsessed. They just launched their Tribal Vibe collection which adds 7 sun-baked shades to their permanent collection. Oh, and did I mention their Miracle Gel Top Coat? It easily gives the polish the gel-like quality. Your mani/pedi lasting up for 14 days, with beautiful high-gloss shine without the need for harsh UV/LED lights. This at-home nail system is definitely the closest thing to getting an a salon gel manicure at home. I’m always on the go, so I pack them too. Whenever I need a refresh.

Now, take a peek at some of my favorite looks, inspired by the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Tribal Vibe” collection.

THE GO-GETTER: 

For the babes who love color, and lots of it. Coats and skirts taken from your grandmother’s closet, but with a hip, cool twist.

THE RENEWED RETRO: 

This nail color is called “Per-Suede”. It totally has that vintage vibe. A classic dusty rose color that goes with just about anything. I like it with a 70’s inspired duster coat, turtleneck, and rad denim culottes. It’s fun going back in time.

I love sparkle and shine. And this nail polish in Terra-Coppa sparkled under the disco ball. It’s neutral enough though to wear with your craziest party dress, and metallic handbag. Make it rocker-chic with a leather moto jacket.

For any work meeting, I’m normally rushing and running late. Swiping on something quick on my nails. Doing that last curl in my hair. But when it comes to everything else, go for something simple but refined. I don’t like too simple, so I let my accessories like my nails show a bit more of spunky personality.

THE FLEA MARKET LOVER:

What I love most about scouring vintage or vintage-inspired items is that there’s always colors and textures, and fun proportions. This nail polish in Rhythm and Blue defines this. Going with the flow. Taking in the vibrancy of city life. Blue skies and all. I like this pop of blue with blacks and purples. Think Mick Jagger.

There are certainly days that I have absolutely no energy to get dressed. It normally waves over me after fashion weeks. I go for the basics. What works. (But yes to sparkly pants) when everything else is nude and black. This nail polish in Cream of the Crop is an OFF DUTY essential. Taken on set of my photoshoots and travels.

I recently donated almost my entire wardrobe. Keeping only the most minimal, quality pieces. A lot was nude and neutral. Less is definitely more. And sometimes going all monochrome is the chic-est thing on earth. Go for Sally Hansen’s Totem-ly Yours polish to complete the look.
