Top 5 Must-Have Pedicure Colors for Summer

In 2011 Fashion Trends on June 24, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Since we have noticed that you ladies loved the nail polish colors post, we thought you would be thrilled to read about and get a look at summer’s top 5 must-have pedicure colors.

Here are out top 5 picks for the hottest pedicure colors to wear this summer:

1. Neon Colors

You can’t say you didn’t see that coming, right? Neons are one of the hottest summer trends and one of our absolute favorites. There so much a bright, lively color can do for you so naturally we love everything from neon accessories to neon pedicure.

We love essie’s lates collection and we had a hard time picking out a favorite but we think we finally did it: we recommend ‘braziliant’ which is a hot orange shade with a touch of shimmer and  ‘super bossa nova‘, in fuchsia, $8 each.

2. Metallic Colors.

We’re thinking shiny silver and lavish gold tones to give your feet a touch of glitz and glam! Zoya’s Goldie ($8) is literally liquid gold for your nails, while  Liquid Silver Nail Polish ($2.80) from FOREVER 21 is the perfect silvery shade.

3. Pretty Pink and Red Hot.

If you’re into classic nail polish colors, we recommend you shades of pink, from light pink to honey suckle, or classic red. These shades are an all-time favorite, easy to pull off and they always look great. We like Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot for pink and A Oui Bit of Red, both from OPI, $8 each.

4. Turquoise.

This is a color that should exist in your wardrobe,  jewelry box and on your toe nails! We love this glittery turquoise nail polish from FOREVER 21 ($2.80) and the fabulous Timely Turquoise ($3.99) from Maybelline available at ULTA.

5. Neutrals.

If you’re not a big fan of all the brights and glittery nail polish but more of a neutrals-type -of-girl we recommend Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish Steel Grey ($3.99) or DEBORAH LIPPMANN Naked ($16.00)

Hope you have enjoyed our picks!

The Reason Why We Love Scarves

Happy Friday everyone!

This started out as a great day for us here at La Purse headquarters as we came across a fantastic article entitled “Scarves Succeed as the Ultimate Fashion Multitaskers.”

Knowing how much we’ve been telling you all how scarves are the most versatile fashion accessory and how you ladies can wear them any way you’d like and pair them with everything else in your wardrobe made us feel like maybe we were being a bit too insistent. So we decided to take some time off from promoting the versatility of the scarves and focus on other fabulous fashion items. And so we did. But this morning we discovered this article in the New York Times and couldn’t resist sharing the news with you.

Needless to say, we agree 100% with the author. Scarves were, are and will forever be the most versatile fashion accessory. And that’s exactly why we love them.

Don’t belive us? Grab one of your scarves or a pashmina shawl and experiment a little.

Turn your scarf into:

1. A headband. And a series of other hair accessories like bows, for example.

2. A turban.

3. A waist belt.

4. A sarong.

5. A beach cover-up.

6. A cowl neck.

7.  Halters.

8. A Shrug

9. Even a sexy halter dress!

10. Nursing blanket.

11. Bridal shawl.

12. Evening shawl.

And much more!

Already feeling inspired? Go ahead, take an oversized scarf and start twisting, looping and knotting and re-create all the above and more.

Who knows, maybe you’ll come up with a new scarf trend!

Do you agree that scarves are the most versatile fashion accessories?
