    Nail Trends with Sally Hansen x DKNY

    Sally Hansen is excited to be the exclusive nail partner for DKNY and to create the nail looks for the Fall 2016 fashion show during New York Fashion Week. “We wanted a playful look that mixes it up with a graphic design and tones from the 90’s,” explained Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, DKNY Creative Directors.



    “When I think of DKNY, I think of the cool inspiration of the 90’s, the color palette of black, gray, white, neutrals, and strong graphic shapes. I knew the nails needed to feel equally sharp. The girls each have their own personality, a variety of hair styles and thus, a variety of nail styles as well. Using two colors, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Dark Hue-mor, a deep navy and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Commander in Chic, a muddy gray-purple, we created four different nail looks which will be randomly applied to the girls backstage. Every girl will have a unique combination of flare.” – Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador


    Commander in Chic and Dark Hue-mor are part of Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection that infuses trend-setting shades with an expert-quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure delivers seven salon manicure steps in one bottle. Chip-resistant strength joins gel-quality shine. Runway-ready color meets nourishing benefits. Plus, with a built-in base and top coat, it’s all you need to achieve a professional manicure at home.

    Woman – The New Fragrance from Donna Karan @DKWoman @HarpersBazaarUS

    Harper’s Bazaar and Donna Karan threw a classy event for New York based beauty bloggers on Monday night on the 44th Floor of Hearst. It was one of the best beauty events I have attended. A combination of a great crowd, very zen atmosphere and invaluable content made this evening worth it. We had a great time networking and talking to fellow bloggers and more importantly, perfume fanatics.

    Me and the girls

    The launch of Donna Karan’s newest fragrance Woman started with an intimate conversation with Trudi Loren (Estee Lauder) and Stephanie Johnson (City Winery), moderated by Avril Graham (Harper’s Bazaar). They took us through a journey of the creation of this perfume as well as the three models used in the campaign: Karolina Kurkova, Liya Kebede & Christy Turlington – supermodels, mothers & philanthropists.

    It was a beautiful event and despite the rain, it was a full house of happy bloggers.

    Must be the great wine pairing, petite amuse-bouche and scents swirling about.

    My favorite pairing: Deseado from Familla Schroeder with Roasted Tomato and Winter Melon Crostini for Orange Blossom

    This evening was about pairing wines with fragrance notes and learning how to smell and taste. WOMAN is like nothing I have smelled before and a welcomed addition to my perfume wardrobe.
    The entire team from chemist to bottle design to perfumer were women. When you smell this, it is a cultural statement and manifestation of the strength and softness of a woman. The bottle for WOMAN was designed by architect Zaha Hadid.

    A fragrance created for women, by women, to celebrate the inspirational, multifaceted women among us: sensual and nurturing mothers, wives, lovers, and friends. A woman is not one thing or another, but everything all at once. Whatever age or race, women are beautiful, embracing their femininity with conviction. The creamy, key notes of orange blossom, sandalwood, and Haitian vetiver express the softness and strength of a woman, exemplifying heart, soul, and beauty—discover the fragrance inspired by all that a woman is.

    Orange Blossom, Sandalwood, Haitian Vetiver.
    Feminine. Powerful. Passionate.
