Deborah Lippmann Painted Desert 3

When I saw the Deborah Lippmann Painted Desert collection, I immediately knew I wanted to do an updated desert camo on my nails.

The neutral nail was seen over and over again on fashion runways for Spring 2013.  It is a look not devoid of color but rather one that showed  a nail color as close to skin tone as possible.  This Deborah Lippmann color is  the perfect nude shade for my skin tone – strong enough to [...]

TTB Trend Watch: Jewel Tone Nails

Wearing Mineral Fusion - Mossy Banks
