Sallie Hansen - Salon Effects in Lace

I wore these for the first time to my good friend's wedding.

Sally Hansen's Salon Effects in "Laced Up"

I got several compliments while wearing this over the weekend!  Most people thought it was done professionally in a salon. :)

Not too difficult to put on, and they did a good job of not chipping for the 5 days I wore them (I had to take them off before starting my clinical rotations).  It has a very slight "nail polish" smell to them when you first remove the clear protective layer on each strip (because it's made with real nail polish), but that fades fast. I cut mine in half so that I get 2 uses out of one box.  I heard that OPI has a nail prep (usually for acrylics) you can brush on before applying the strips to help it stick better... I'll try it next time!  Also, when removing these things, I literally had to soak a cotton ball for EACH fingernail... I guess that goes to show how well it sticks to your nails. 

Trending boots 2011

It's mid-September! That means all the retailers are beginning to push out the fall trend: boots!

It looks like harness, riding, flat, tall, and chunky-heeled boots/booties in black and shades of browns will be popular for this coming season.  Straps, buckles, and laces are also still popular as well.

I'm currently obsessed with Jeffrey Campbell's Lita (which I believe are "inspired by" Charles Anastase  Dungeon Boots)
However, at this point in my life, I wouldn't be able to wear them anywhere! :(

Mr. Campbell has come a long way in establishing a great shoe line since I learned about him last year and was obsessing over the line.  Well done!
