Nailtini Was Pretty in Pink at New York Fashion Week

We are still jumping for joy at the opportunity we had to participate in fashion designer Naomi Spindel’s Ready-To-Wear Spring 2014 show at New York Fashion Week.

Truly talented,  fashion up-and-comer Naomi Spindel honed her flare for fashion while working for designers such as Alexander Wang, Oscar de la Renta and Proenza Schouler to name a few. For her premiere show at Fashion Week she debuted a fun, and glamorous 10-look collection featuring  hot shorts, wrap tops and slipdresses in rich fabrics and stunning feminine shades.  

Going with the glam feel of the show, renowned Manicurist Omary Gonell used Nailtini in Blushing Lady and Grenadine to create some equally as stunning nail looks which paired perfectly with the designer’s vision. 

The final look was jaw-droppingly gorgeous! ImageImage

Give your nails and your wardrobe a vacation from your ordinary shades and accessories this season. Color us crazy about the “Island Glam” trend recently featured in Glamour Magazine. Palm leaf prints and tropical flowers make great nail art. 


If you can’t get away for a summer vaca, have a tropical stay-cation at home complete with fruity cocktails and pampering!

Many nail salons serve up drinks. One of our local faves here in Orange County, CA, is Cosi Fan Tutte Nail Lounge in Laguna Beach (550 S Coast Hwy Unit 5 – 6 | Laguna Beach, CA 92651), which offers clients champagne, wine, coffee, cookies, and other sweet treats while getting glammed up.

Be a BANG-ing Beauty

Are you stuck in a beauty rut? Bangs are just the thing to update your look without a lot of commitment. Fringe is flirty and fun plus if you decide you’re not crazy about them, you can pin them back in a braid or pull them to the side until they grow out.  For those who are not ready to commit, check out clip-in bangs like these from celeb hair stylist, Ken Paves. 

Bangs can make you look younger, something many women want. For those who already get carded when ordering their favorite cocktail, the key to rocking this trend without looking like a 12 year old is to play up lips or eyes.

Bangs draw attention to eyes so play them up with a fun eye look such as the always-sexy and gorgeous smokey eye, a la Kim Kardashian.


Get her look by defining your peepers with the Eyetini Swizzle Stick Mechanical Eyeliner in Black Stripe. This paraben-free eyeliner resists smudging and fading and will never need sharpening. And when it comes to lashes, size does matter. Finish the look by curling lashes and applying two coats of Eyetini Magnum Lash-Intensifying Mascara in Black Russian.  The magnifying mascara brush serves up longer, thicker, darker lashes and coupled with our high-pigment formula, our mascara is worthy of being called the champagne of mascaras.

Another sophisticated take on the bang trend is pairing it with bold lipstick as seen on the gorgeous Rashida Jones. Notice she looks young yet polished with her wispy bangs, red lips and dangling earrings.

Channel your inner siren and get screen-worthy lips with Vampire Kiss by Terri Apanasewicz for Liptini. This limited edition shade looks absolutely stunning finished with Liptini Topper Lipgloss in Cherry Fizz. This lustrous, bleed-resistant gloss is a sheer juicy-red spiked with ruby shimmer.
