LACQUER LOVE Infinite Shades of Nude

This Valentine’s Day, go nude.

It’s the #1 nail trend for Spring, and there countless variations on the hue from pinky purple to dusty rose to sunkissed buff to flirt with and maybe keep around for awhile. Six to try:

Dior ‘Lady’ / Essie ‘Ballet Slippers’ / Deborah Lippman ‘Chantilly Lace’ / Dior ‘Lili’ / Essie ‘Topless and Barefoot’ / LVX ‘Rive’

And I cannot wait to try Deborah Lippman’s new ‘Gel Lab’ top and base coat — no more heat lamps to achieve lacquered nails that last up to three weeks! Give it a try, so far I’ve heard it’s getting great reviews.

When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).
