Had to share some of my beauty favorites that make perfect gifts!

So usually I don’t really do a big post on the after-party outfits, but there were some pretty good ones for this year’s Oscars, so why not? I think most of the people who wore my favorite dresses for the show ended up wearing my favorites for the after parties also…For me my favorites were (and not necessarily in this order)…
1. Jennifer Lawrence
2. Naomi Watts
3. Amy Adams
4. Lily Collins
5. Kate Bosworth
6. Diane Krueger
7. Amanda Seyfriend
8. Nina Dobrev
I know that’s a lot, but there were so many good ones, and a lot of people who weren’t at the Oscars, but came after! Let me know who your favorites were!
Anne Hathaway in YSL; I can’t decide if I like this dress better or worse than the one she wore to the show. This one doesn’t flatter her figure at all, but I like the color better. The other one was just so plain and blah. This one is just shapeless. I didn’t like her choices at all. Maybe she’s pregnant?
Selena Gomez in Versace; This isn’t really my favorite. I feel like she’s trying to look a lot older than she is. It’s a pretty dress, but I wish she would have worn something more fun and in a bright color!
Hilary Swank in Valentino; I really like this dress, but I would have picked something a little bit less heavy looking for a party. I mean it’s red and fun, and has the light material on top, but I think the train and the long sleeves makes it look a little bit heavier than I would like. It’s gorgeous though.
Kourtney Kardashian in Brian Renne and Kim Kardashian in Donna Karen; honestly I don’t know how the Karsdashian’s get into anything important, but I think Kourtney is hilarious so I’ll forgive that…I do think her dress is a little bit too long though. If it was a bit shorter I would love it. Or even all the way to the floor would be better. I think that Kim’s fits better with the event. I don’t really like her white shoes. I think it would look better if they were gold. I just don’t know why she’s even there!
Elizabeth Banks in Alexander McQueen; Such a fun dress! I loved it! Orange is hard to pull off, but it looked beautiful. I love this material for spring. I did not really like her hair though. It was too high in the front and slicked on the sides.
Diane Krueger in Giambattista Valli; Ohmigosh I absolutely love this. I think it’s one of my favorites because it’s so different! It’s fun and cute, but sophisticated in a way also! I love actually love the width and sleeves.

So…it’s still winter, and still freezing…but spring fashion trends are everywhere online, in magazines, and even in stores already! It’s this huge dilemma for me because I want to buy all of them up right away, but I can’t wear them. Then by the time I can wear them, the next season is already out or I’m tired of them because it took so long for the snow to go away! I know, I have such a hard life when this is my biggest problem in the morning right? (heavy sarcasm, if you couldn’t sense it :P)
Anyway, if any of you are like me, there is a simple way to solve this! Spring Nail Colors! You can at least brighten up your fingers and toes and stay warm at the same time! Then when it really is spring, you can match them to your cute new spring outfits! So, here is a rainbow of spring colors to try!
Dior ‘Cherie Bow’ Nail Laquer; Deborah Lippmann ‘Groove is in the Heart’; Zoya Nail Polish in ‘Geigei’; China Glaze Nail Polish in ‘Passion for Petals’; Essie Nail Polish in ‘Madison Ave-Hue’.
LCN Polish in ‘Soft Daisy’; Zoya Nail Polish in ‘Jacqueline’; Butter London in ‘Jasper’
Deborah Lippmann Polish in ‘Rockin’ Robin’; YSL Nail Lacquer in ‘Bronze Pyrite’; Zoya Nail Polish in ‘Neely’; LCN Polish in ‘I Love Mint’; Butter London Nail Lacquer in ‘Fiver’;
LCN Polish in ‘Lilac Blossom’; Butter London Nail Lacquer in ‘Molly Coddled’; Zoya Nail Polish in ‘Julie’; Essie Nail Polish in ‘Bond with Whomever’.
It just so happens that I picked a lot of O.P.I. shades for my picks this post…I do love O.P.I., but I also recommend Essie and Sally Hansen! These three brands are probably what I buy the most and are a little bit cheaper than Butter, Deborah Lippmann, or Dior, for example. They don’t chip as fast and have a great thick color…none of that see-through, you have to put on ten coats to get it to show kind. Two coats and a quick-dry top coat are all you need. However, I do like all of the brands I posted out!
Don’t forget to let me know what your favorites are for spring!
