Kiss Nail Art Pens

I was bored and needed something to do today - want to guess what I did? My nails, of course! I used Kiss Nail Art Pens. 

After painting them bright pink, I got to work drawing pics with the black pen! Flowers, hearts, love and squiggly lines entertained me for quite a while. 

When I was done with doodling on my nails, I used a clear top coat over the drawings so they didn't come off. 

My friend Amy was jealous and wanted to do her nails as well. She had on a coat of nude polish. She wanted a uniform design on all of her nails. She used the black pen to draw black hearts in the center of each nail. She then used the white pen to make three little dots around the heart.

We were entertained and very happy with our designs!

Sale Picks for the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

What are the holidays without the food coma-induced couch residence you take up, computer firmly planted in lap, wine/cocoa to your right, credit card to your left? Your favorite online retailers are aware of this Occupy Sofa movement, and meet your demand for instant fashion at a discount with some glorious sales. Here are some of my picks - all of which will require a post Christmas cookie-detox to fit into.

The part microscope-examined amoeba, part tie-dye skirt you've been wanting for months - okay, well, I've been wanting it for months, anyway - is finally on sale. So get to popping that pop of color. It's just $168 from $420 at Net-a-Porter

Is this the perfect sandal? I submit that it is. It's got the elegance and versatility of a nude shoe, but a little bit of chunk and modish cool to keep things updated. Plus, it's Miu Miu, and Miu Miu makes miraculously, deceptively comfortable heels. These are $289 from $730 (what?) at Barney's.

I have no words for this dress. Except that I have all the words. It's a scary kind of love. This KENZO creation is so gorgeous yet so cool - and it's marked down to $625 from $1040 at Moda Operandi.

This sale time is perfect for those of us who are like "eh, that is so cool but I just don't know if I can rationalize $150 for a t-shirt..." The cool-girl I <3 Nueva York tank from 3.1 Phillip Lim you wanted is now a very rational $57 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Handbags and Hugs,
