From Sparkly and Neon to Evil

Deborah Lippmann Nail polishes has been featured on the hands and feet of the most notable women around the world (Kate Winslet, Renee Zelweger, Penelope Cruz just to name a few). Her creations go from glitter to neon and recently evil. She just launched a duo set inspired by Snow White and the Huntsman screenplay. By the way, Charlize Theron's costumes on the film are superb. You can’t miss it!

The glittery polishes just screen party to me. Try the "Ruby Red Slippers" for 4th of July. You can find all of them here.

To bright up your summer try one of the neon colors from the ‘Run the World (Girls)’ collection. You can buy a Mini Set for $45/ currently at Nordstrom. I'm loving "I kissed a Girl" and "Party girl".

I Kissed a Girl, It Girl, Hollaback Girl, Nasty Girl and Party Girl.

The set inspired by Snow White and the Huntsman includes two shades, Prelude to a Kiss and Dark Side of the Moon, representing the struggle between good and evil. Available here.

Demure beige and Dark Side of the Moon.

For a more affordable price option try Essie. If you like pink polishes, you will be in heaven, they have a wide variety. Buy it here or here.

White, Blue and Teal

Last Sartuday I had couple hours to myself without the kids, so I put some shorts, heels and went off to the mall. 

Top: Anthropologie, old (similar at H&M in store)
Shorts: Banana Republic, old (similar here)
Pumps and belt: from Brazil
Necklace and bracelet: AE, old
Watch: Michael Kors

My first stop was Forever 21. There, I got a small black purse that reminds me a classic Chanel and a pair of aviator shades to replace my Banana Republic ones that I used to wear everyday (broken by the 4 little hands of my twins a while ago). Then I went to H&M to return some items and there I spotted a lime purse that really caught my attention. The store was closing so my goal this week is to go back there and take a closer look at the bag. Last stop at Ruby's for shake and fries to maintain my figure, LOL!
