All That Blings…

2 Apr


I am obsessed with getting my nails done!!! It’s one of the easiest ways to put a smile on my face. But I am a stickler for quality and perfectionism. I am loving all these nail techs but one of my favorites is Ms.Tina. She hails from Florida and her work is beyond impeccable. Some try to duplicate it but they can’t!!! I am obsessed with her designs and overall creative edge. Take a look at her designs and let me know what you think; also you can contact her on Instagram at “nailsbymztina”.

Spring Into Pastel’s…

28 Mar

So Spring is in season and Easter will soon be upon us… So you are probably noticing a lot of bright pastel colors all around. I have to admit I am not a major fan of pastel’s on myself due to my complexion I feel the colors look kind of murky an unflattering. However I absolutely adore pastel’s on everyone else!!! I think individuals with deep skin tones can carry the light airiness of the colors well as well as fair skin individuals it adds that extra pop of color. The easiest way to get color without overdoing it is with nail polish. There are so many yummy selections available!!!So head to your local Nail Salon and get that Mani/Pedi done right!!!

Trend Alert: V-Gap Nails…

21 Mar

In designer Antonio Beradi’s Fall 2011 show, models were seen with a new nail trend called the “V-Gap”  Nail extraordinaire, Sophy Robson, created this look and gave it its name!  The V-Gap is very similar to the half moon trend (below), but it has a skinny space in between which gives nails a hott look!

This new trend is something I will be trying out.  I love nalis that make others take a second look.  The V-Gap does just that!

In the words of Swizzy: “Nails done! Hair done! Everything did!”  That’s when we know we look our best ladies, and the talented Katherine “Ms.KreativeKay” Evelyn can help you to do just that!  She is a business woman who has mastered the craft of nail art.  She is based in Long Island in the Greater New York area and  has been executing her unique, one of a kind designs since 2001.

In a sit down with her, I asked a few questions:

Ki: How did you get started with nail art?

KreativeKay: Messing around in nail school.  It was the week of nail art and I was goofing off!  I fell in love with the piece I did, and that’s all.

Ki: When looking for new ideas, what gives you inspiration?

KreativeKay: Music, abstract art pieces, and movies.

Ki: What would you say is the must have nail design for 2011?  Do you
foresee any new trends?

KreativeKay: Abstracts designs!  And you could never go wrong with black & white.  These two colors never go out of season!

Ki: What advice would you offer to someone wanting to break into the beauty industry and follow your path?
