I am a bit spoiled to gel manicures these days however, while primping in the beauty tent at a pre Fashion’s Night Out event last Thursday, I saw and had to have a color from the Essie 2012 fall collection, Stylenomics. The six tantalizing shades in the collection create a nice mix of neutral, sassy and rich, bold colors, all aimed at making a dynamic style statement for fall. Here is the color line up (l to r):
- don’t sweater it — smooth mauve
- skirting the issue — hearty burgundy
- recessionista — earthy red
- miss fancy pants — chic greige (aka beige/gray)
- head mistress — bold red
- stylenomics — rich, dark green
In the beauty tent, Cara – a nail tech from Grand Spa in Addison, was helpful in my color selection. I was not daring enough to go with the collections namesake, stylenomics, as my choice. Instead, I selected don’t sweater it for a more neutral, yet exciting pop of color. This turned out the be a wise choice; everyone one loved it! For my next manicure at Grand Spa, I am all about miss fancy pants!
The Stylenomics collection hits stores and salons worldwide this month, so be on the lookout. You can also order your favorite color or the whole fall 2012 collection on the Essie website.
