Feminine & Fierce Lace!

We at Beauty of a Site are seeing new fall trends with bright lace. When worn correctly, lace shows off your feminine side while highlighting your fierce side! Instead of always going with your little black dress for evenings and holiday parties, try these!

Kristen Stewart, also known as Bella Swan, dressed in a bright blue lace dress with matching heels and a matching ribbon belt. Also notice that the dress has nude-colored layer underneath to make this blue really pop!

Taylor Swift wore a red lace dress with a black slip. Notice that the black does not reach her neck nor her shoulders. This keeps the dress classy yet edgy, and gives a more form-fitting appearance to the dress. She also wore nude heels which helps keep the focus on the fierce red!

We love the cap sleeves on this dress worn by Jennifer Lawrence, of The Hunger Games. Our only suggestion would be to switch the white slip underneath for a black or nude one. The white softens the look, while nude of black would help it stand out! She also wore red shoes that are not the same red-orange shade as the dress, and so they draw their own attention which takes away from the creativity and edginess of the dress itself.

Try some lace on this fall be sure to wear the appropriate slip color under and shoes that compliment your look too!

It’s Here! The OPI Skyfall Collection!

The newest James Bond movie, Skyfall, which debuted in the U.S. this past weekend, grossed $87.8 million, bringing the movie’s overall gross to over $500 million so far (Boston Herald). This revenue for a James Bond movie debut sets the new record above the $67 million brought in during the first weekend of Quantum of Solace in 2008 (Boston Herald).

This collection features 6 new dangerous shades, all of which can be layered underneath the previously anticipated 18K gold leaf top coat, Man With The Golden Gun! Bold styles and colors are hitting the red carpet this Winter and this gold leaf polish is right on trend…and we don’t know about you, but we love a little bling!

Naomie Harris is one of two leading ladies in Skyfall. Known for her roles in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, this British actress portrays Eve, a field agent with James Bond. At Skyfall’s red carpet premiere, the actress wore a dress by Marios Schwab. She wore a deep, rich, burgundy color nail polish, which you can match with the OPI Skyfall shade!

The second female star is French actress Berenice Marlohe, who’s first major movie appearance is in Skyfall. She plays Severine alongside James Bond.  At the film’s red carpet premiere, Bernice wore a dress by Vivienne Westwood. She also dazzled the crowd with her signature smokey eye and messy yet poised up-do. Try our ModelCo Eyeshadow Trio in Smokey Eye to get your own smokey-eyed look!

The OPI Skyfall Collection celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Bond 007!  It is filled with eye-pleasing darks that are perfect for this winter season! Popular shades to note are OPI The Living Daylights, which is an elegant multi-color glitter sparkle. We also really love the OPI Live and Let Die because of it’s mysterious and rich blue-black shade, which is perfect for winter.  Check them out here and get yours before they are gone…..it is a limited edition, which means when they are sold out, they are gone for good!!

Zoya Gilty Pleasures Trio

Zoya Gilty Pleasures Trio

Zoya’s Gilty Pleasures Trio truly is just that – a guilty pleasure! The bottle of Gilty polish is a topcoat made of 18K gold flakes! Raven and Purity also come in this gift box and are perfect base colors beneath the gold flakes.  We sampled each color and tried the gold-flake topcoat alone too. Whether it is worn alone or over another polish, the gold flakes dry flat on the nail and add a touch of class to any color!!

The black Raven polish creates a boldness under the Gilty gold-flake topcoat, while the white Purity polish generates sophistication and class. Wearing Gilty on its own also makes a statement of glitz and glam!  The gift set also includes a booklet with color combination suggestions.

Several celebrities have been spotted wearing gold polish, including Rihanna at this year’s Grammy Awards.
