Essie Nail Polish: After School Boy Blazer

I'm going dark blue in today's post with Essie's After School Boy Blazer. Similar to the Essie color Wicked as discussed in my previous post, this polish has a myseterious quality as it appears to be black, but also contains hues of blue. In fact, the hints of blue are most prominent in the light as it picks up the color on the nails. 

This polish is rich, highly pigmented and leaves a nice shine on the nails. Definitely a great color to wear in the winter months. When applying this color, I recommend applying two coats of polish in order to produce a nice even and sleek finish on the nails. 

 If you are are interested in wearing a dark color on your nails, but you don't want to go entirely black, this color would be a good option to try out since it's a more of a dark navy blue on the nails than a true black. 

Overall, Essie's After School Boy Blazer is wonderful rich color that looks great on all complexions.

Highlights From Last Week: Beauty Blogger Event, Nails & Fashion

Last week on the blog...

  I was very honored to be invited to attend the Miracle10 Beauty Bloggers Event last week. The event allowed me to learn about the Miracle 10 skincare line and meet an amazing bunch of beauty bloggers that I rarely get to interact with. 

  In terms of beautifying myself, I decided to vamp up my nails with the nail polish Wicked by Essie. It's a very deep dark vampy red that is great to wear on your nails for fall/winter. 

  As well, I showcased my outfit of the day which also includes the newest item of my wardrobe: Faux-leather leggings from Hue. I have been struggling for months to find the right pair of leggings that fit my body properly. Alas, I found a pair while I was at a designer sample sale in Toronto. The leggings are wonderful and I have been wearing them constantly. 

  Overall, it was a very exciting week on Twenties And Fabulous.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Miracle 10 Beauty Blogger Event

  I was very honored to be invited to the Miracle 10 Beauty Bloggers event. It was the perfect event for bloggers to unite, discuss our passion about beauty products and learn about the products from the Miracle 10 skincare line.

  Also in attendance was the highly acclaimed beauty blogger, Michelle Villett, who was the guest speaker for the event. It was such an amazing opportunity to be able to speak with Michelle as she is so highly regarded within the beauty industry in Toronto. If you are interested in celebrity beauty looks and hairstyles I recommend checking out Michelle's blog beauty editor.

  During the event, Michelle discussed some of the popular beauty trends that are being displayed on  runways. For instance, the natural makeup look has been seen in the Marc Jacobs spring/summer runway show, as shown below.

  I personally am looking forward to this beauty trend, since I am such a fan of the natural look. However, there is definitely a lot that goes into creating a natural glowing face when you are trying to create the 'perfect' natural makeup look.

  After chatting with Michelle and the other beauty bloggers, I decided to get my makeup done as there was a Dior makeup artist on site to do some fun lip and eye looks.

  I decided to get my eye makeup done by the Dior makeup artist. The eyeshadow I am wearing comes from the Dior palette Golden shock. I am also wearing some blue mascara on my eyelashes, which I haven't worn in such a long time, but really love. 

  Overall, it was such an amazing opportunity and experience to be able to attend the Miracle 10 beauty blogger event. I learned so much, made some new beauty blogger friends, and had a great time. Oh, and I can't leave out the fact that I received an amazing gift bag from Miracle 10 that contained products from their skin care line. Stay tuned for a review on the Miracle 10 skin care products that I received coming up later on the blog.

Outfit Of The Day

  I have been on the longest quest imaginable to find a pair of leather/faux leggings. However, every time I search, I fail at finding a pair that fits me properly. I'm not sure what it is about leggings, but they never fit my body. Whether they are too big too small for me, it always seems to be this piece of clothing that I have trouble wearing. Anyone else has the same problem?

  Alas, it seems the sun comes out after a bad storm, as I found a great pair of faux leather leggings at a designer sample sale that I recently attended. Ironically, as I was ready to leave the sale I noticed a stand with leather leggings and decided to try them on. Who knew that these would be the solution to my legging nightmares. The leggings are from HUE, which happens to be a company that specializes in leg wear, tights and socks. I was a bit skeptical when I first tried them on, due to my past history of legging shopping; however, I was shocked to discover that these leggings fit my body properly. They did not roll down, rather they were tight and complimented my figure. Success- it's such a great feeling. 

In today's look I paired the leggings with a wrap kimono styled cardigan. Although the cardigan is very casual, the leggings add a bit of edge to my outfit. 

  I really like these HUE faux leather leggings and I am so happy that I picked them up.They are so easy to incorporate into my wardrobe and they help give me a bit of edge. Definitely a fun piece to have in my closet.

Essie Nail Polish: Wicked

  I decided to venture into the dark realm of nail polish for Fall by purchasing the color Wicked by Essie. It's bold, rich and dark- all the characteristics needed for a great fall color.

  I was first drawn to Wicked as I was browsing through a shelf of Essie nail polishes at a local beauty store in my area; which also happens to be my weekly routine. As my fingers fell upon the vampy red bottle, I thought that it would be a good choice, since I'm always fond of how dark polishes look on my nails. Besides, Essie rarely lets me down when it comes to nail polish.

  From applying Wicked on my nails, it is apparent that the color appears to be more chocolate brown or black on the nails, than a deep dark red. However, under certain flecks of the light one can observe hues of red in the polish. Therefore, one can classify Wicked as being as a very deep dark polish on the nails.
  I personally like the richness and vampy aspect of the nail polish, especially for the Fall. I also like how nicely the polish applies to the nails. However, keep in mind that due to the darkness of this polish, it is best to apply two layers in order to avoid streaks and bring out the richness of the color. I also choose to apply a top coat to ensure longevity and to add extra shine, but it's ultimately your decision if you want to add on this extra step.

  Overall, if you are interested in attaining a vampy look this Fall, this is definitely a good polish to try out. It's creates a bold and edgy statement that looks great on all skin complexions.

Highlights Of My Week: Beauty, Shopping & Fashion

  This has been an incredibly busy week. I'm sure most of you guys can relate, especially with Halloween and everything else going on in life. Now that this week is over, I would like to share some of the highlights with you all.

  One of my fall outfits was showcased this week on the blog. I really love this outfit. It's super cute, comfortable and casual. I feel ready for Fall when I walk around in this outfit and I can't wait to re-create many more looks around it.

  I went shopping at Ikea this weekend to pick up a few items. Boy do I love shopping at Ikea, for the great designs and prices. I also love the set up of the store and the way everything is arranged. There is truly an art to this store that does not always get acknowledged. Even the way the pillows are displayed in the picture above is so beautiful and creative. Oh, Ikea.

  Since Fall has been around for a couple of weeks, I decided to switch things up and pull out a bright pink nail polish by Essie called Watermelon. I really adore this polish color. It's really bright on my nails and reminds me of a warmer time. (I am not a fan of the cold). If you are interested in bright pinks, you should definitely check it out.

  I didn't have a scary outfit this Halloween, but I spent the day changing my hair to an ombre style and I added a deep purple color to my lips. The color is called Train bleu by NARS. It's a bit intense, but I love it. What do you think?

  I hope you all had a great week! If you enjoyed this post or would like to share your thoughts, please feel free to leave a comment below.
