Emerald inspiration for 2013

Pantone announced last week that the Color of 2013 is a beautiful, jewel-tone green hue named “Emerald.” This vibrant shade of green has been popular over the past few seasons and is expected to explode as spring/summer 2013 and fall/winter 2013/2014 hit store shelves.

Designers showed Emerald green in every way imaginable on the runways in New York, Paris, Milan and London for the spring/summer 2013 season. In addition to shoes, apparel, handbags and jewelry, Emerald green was shown on nail polish and also on eye shadow. If it can be Emerald green, it will be!

In addition to what we wear, Emerald green is expected to be a hot color for interior design too. This will be the hue we wear, sleep and play in; fabulous!

Laura Mercier Moderne Red nail polish review

Laura Mercier’s new “Moderne Red” from the holiday 2012 collection is the ultimate cherry on top of any look this holiday season. This cherry-red color is a classic holiday hue and works perfectly with all of the glittering holiday looks this season. Love that!

Red is already a hot shade for the fall/winter 2012/2013 season, making “Moderne Red” by Laura Mercier the perfect cherry red for 2012 holiday season. Classic + on-trend = fabulous!

To achieve the exact color on nails found inside the “Moderne Red” by Laura Mercier bottle, the nail polish needs two coats. We applied one base coat plus two coats of color and the polish lasted one week; the only reason it was time to re-polish was because my nails grew! As with all of Laura Mercier’s nail polish colors, “Moderne Red” is highly chip resistant and retains its color and shine throughout the week.

“Moderne Red” by Laura Mercier is perfect for the holiday 2012 season as well as being a staple in ones’ nail polish collection. The shade is classic and easy to wear; adding timeless appeal to anyone’s’ nail polish wardrobe. Love that!

Laura Mercier nail polish, including “Moderne Red,” can be found online at LauraMercier.com orSephora.com. Happy shopping, happy holidays and stay fabulous
