So I attended some of the festivities during Fashion’s Night Out in NYC. Could I just say that FNO was just straight insanity!
FNO - Insane!!!
I don’t every remember every seeing that many people on Manhattan Island ever!!! People were just out and about, having a ball! SoHo was unbelievable…People like peas! 🙂
One place that I visited was Henri Bendel. Once inside, I discovered that the GINGER+LIZ counter was offering free polish changes!!! Claro que si, I could not resist!!!!
GINGER+LIZ is a fresh, young, hip , organic nail polish collection and minority-owned business, founded by S. Liz Pickett and H. Ginger Johnson. It’s luxury on a budget and there is something for everyone. Personality in a bottle. So whether you like something bold, chic, sophisticated or laid back, and still grown, G+L’s line totally caters for you. They are also vegan-friendly and toxin-free (which is becoming more normal nowadays). They are immensely popular with magazine editors, celebrities and regular folks, and I could absolutely see why!
So Memorial Day has come and gone, so that means that summer is here, unofficially!!!!
Y’all know that summer is my absolutely favourite time of year. Hot, humid, bright….that’s all me!!!! I love wearing bright colours, soft fabrics like linen, the beach weather, I’m a true Caribbean girl!!!
Enough about me!
So this Memorial weekend had the best weather that I could remember in a while!!! NYC was just sunny and warm. I hung out with a great friend of mine, Jackie. She is the founder and author of CooklikeJackie.com. She’s a foodie and enjoys the art of cooking, dining and everything involved with making food amazing!!!! You like cooking gadgets? Find some great reviews here.
So Jackie asked me to help her pick some colours to wear to break out of her no-colour phase. I suggested OPI‘s Hot & Spicy from Hong Kong Collection. She’s about NC 35 or so (I’m purely guessing!) and I think that that colour would look great on anyone with bronzey skin!!! Especially paired with summer whites!

It just says SUMMER! Be sure to check out this colour!!!
I’ve been wearing this recently. I think this is one of OPI’s best colours! It came out with their France collection maybe a year or so ago. A greyed out lavender, that has enough colour that it works for spring time or warm climates. Great for those who want to wear colour at work, without going bright or doing the classic pale pink/creme/ white colour. This has no shimmer. Looks amazing on Black, East Indian, Latina or Arabic skin!!!!!!

Here is one of the most coveted nail colours of the year: A sparkly blackened grey polish as the base with medium-sized, multi coloured glitter. What I really love about this polish is that the glitter is not chunky so it’s festive and adult at the same time. Works well alone with 2-3 coats for full coverage but also looks amazing over black, grey and even white polish. It probably contains every colour of glitter – red, orange, teal, purple, silver – so you have lots of layering options.
This polish is sold out in most places, but you could still probably find it on eBay and a few other beauty sites.
