Nails and color

If you are living in Buenos Aires, you’ll probably are freezing as me, meanwhile the guys who live in the north hemisphere are enjoying of very hot days and sandals. Actually, it really doesn’t matter the weather that you have in your city, because there is always a need to have a great manicure and especially if you are using sandals.


Today, I am going to tell you about the trends of nail polish for both groups, because there are great options that only a few years ago would have been unthinkable and now there are perfectly accepted. And I am talking about flashy colors, graffiti designs, or nail polish with texture.


For the summer the colors go from a very simple French manicure, a great nude or a very sexy red. There is not only one trend, this season offers a wide open range of colors where the warm tones are the protagonists of the season (pink, red, orange, yellow, etc). There are also another fun options were you can add texture or a specific design for each nail.

If you are living on the south hemisphere winter is coming, so the colors that rule are the cold tones. The green become the king of the season, followed by the cranberry, blue (from the light to the very dark), red, gray, brown, violet and black.

The glitter is allowed for every color and also if you want to mix it with various colors or just wear it alone. There are also metallic tones as golden or silver.

As you can see there is a big variety of colors that you can choose, where ever you are, for summer or winter. The more important of all is that you have to choose a color or design that match your personality and the kind of activities that you are going to have. It is not the same to have a manicure for a party than to go to work.


Have fun, make your own creation and always have a perfect manicure showing your style.


See you soon!



Note: The nailpolish presented are from OPI and Sephora.

A day of shopping in Buenos Aires

Last weekend we had a previous of what is going to be the winter here in Buenos Aires. It was freezing! So, with out giving too much of a thought, we just pull out from the closet the coat and the gloves. And since it was very cold outside, I went to the mall to see what can we buy here in Buenos Aires for the season.


I have to say, that I found a lot of great things, but I was quite shock with the prices, what is going on??? Everything is very expensive! And it is not that I just like to complain, comparing the prices with other countries is crazy here.
I have always being amazed with the originality of the Argentinean designers, it is completely different from what you can buy in Miami (where all of the Argentineans love to go for shopping), but I really believe that his time the price they are charging is quite expensive.

Now, you have to know that the mall was packed … and the reason of that was that in every single store you could find credit cards promotions that give you discounts of 25 to 40% and also you can pay in 3 installments with out interests. So, as you can imagine, that is the way that everybody buy and I guess that is the only way until the crisis pass.


So, after complaining about the prices, I am going to tell you about the fun part of my visit to the mall. I found great variety of design and color, and this time I will show you the maxi-dresses that I found in almost every store and it seams to be a must for the season.


First let’s see the designs of Maria Cher, she uses light fabrics and woven dresses. Her style is very elegant but not classic, she always includes some details that make her clothes kind of irreverent.

Vitamina use printed gauze for this model and they mixed it with a sweater of an original print. For those who are afraid of mixing prints, look at this example and how good it looks.

Rapsodia is a brand that always mixes color, textures and prints in their designs. The style of their collection is a mix of hippy and Indian. Here we can see three examples of maxi-dresses with different accessories. I specially love the leather jacket.

Wanama present looks more hippies but they’re almost a tribute for the Indians of North America. The prints and colors are fun and again, here we have another interesting mix of prints, look at the dress with stripes and the scarf with animal print. As you can see here is a maxi-sweater, it is not exactly a maxi-dress but I just loved it!

With this little mall-tour, you can have an idea of what you can find in Buenos Aires. As you can see there is a big variety of designs, fabrics and prints and it’s definitely a trend the long skirts and maxi-dresses which are good to protect us from the cold and also to help us to hide all the extra pounds of the little sins that we eat to stand the cold!


Have a great week!


See you soon!
