Hot Days and Nights Deserve Haute Nails

Essie Haute in the Heat - Swatches and Review Though I look forward to it every year, most of my summer is spent looking at pictures of white sand beaches while I sit in my overly air-conditioned office and try to convince myself that having a California Club for lunch counts as “enjoying the summer.” No fear, fellow cubicle dwellers.…

China Glaze Captures Summer in a (Nail Polish) Bottle

China Glaze Off Shore - Swatches and Review Summer 2014 is in full swing, and my first beach trip of the season is just days away.
