This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Nailed It

August, 11, 2014

Today’s beauty breakdown is all about nails, plus high-quality colors that shout “Summer,” and are known for covering with just one coat!

I figure that summer only comes around once a year, so now is the time to bring out the bright colors with gusto.

Whether you’re an emerging artist, a college girl, or a businesswoman, FingerPaints Up and Coming Artist (aka a hot pink shade) is the perfect tip for a colorful French nail.

I chose to pair it with an apricot base…FingerPaints Impressionist Rose. If the shades I’m wearing aren’t being sold at a beauty supply store near you, check-out the array of other super-shine hues the company has to offer.

When going for the colorful French, I try to pick compatible tones that complement the base and aren’t so different that the tips steal all the attention. I’m also a little leery of online nail-color perusing because shades can look different in person. No woman wants to be left with buyer’s remorse, which is why I never settle for a nail color before seeing it up close.
