OK, so I took a ton of notes at fashion week to see which handbags were hot on the street. Unfortunately, I was so busy taking notes, I failed to snap a bunch of photos! Man, I am out of practice! Thankfully, I had enough sense to get this one photo of a YSL shoulder bag carried by Kali of In Spade Blog before the Nonie runway show at Spring Studios.

Every season there are several handbags which are favored by guests of New York Fashion Week. This season there seemed to be an overwhelming presence of YSL shoulder bags. By overwhelming, I mean you could hardly find any other trend in handbags on the street. This was the bag style favored by the fashion set.

While there wasn’t one stand-out YSL shoulder bag style, there was a general sense that you needed a YSL shoulder bag in your life; any style or model would do. Of course, with any trend, there are a few rules. The YSL shoulder bag could not be jumbo, or on the large side. The New York Fashion Week street style handbags rule of thumb this season was small, or medium; nothing large. Your YSL bag should be small or medium; and if your bag was not YSL, it should still be small or medium. Not nano, large, or jumbo; just small or medium. You should be able to fit your wallet, sunglasses and phone inside your handbag, if not, your bag is too small.

In addition to YSL shoulder bags, there were several versions of square handbags, train cases, and small lady bags on the streets of New York Fashion Week. Handbags offered nontraditional shapes, and were free of logos. PVC handbags were also prominent on the streets of New York Fashion Week. Also, anyone carrying Louis Vuitton was not carrying the monogram vernis. They were carrying LV bags which were recognizable, but free of logos. Take note.

Can you believe this year is almost over? I’m in disbelief! As we head towards the New Year, I have been looking back at 2017, and reminiscing about what I liked, and what I didn’t like. There were so many pretty nail polish hues this past year, many of which are still relevant for the upcoming new year. I loved so many colors in 2017, but these are my favorite ten nail polish hues from this past year.

YSL holiday 2017 nail polish Dazzling Lights review

YSL holiday 2017 nail polish collection review

YSL holiday 2017 nail polish collection: Red Lights and Gold Fire

When it comes to fashion, the holidays are all about sparkles, and festive style. I was looking for something festive in the world of nail polish, to compliment the festive vibe of holiday fashion, and was thrilled to find the YSL holiday 2017 nail polish collection; so of course I purchased it right away! The collection is back to holiday basics; sparkling red and gold.

I tested out both colors; because they are fabulous! I liked one more then the other when it came to texture; while loving both of the hues. Without further ado, here are my reviews!

YSL Holiday 2017 Nail Polish: Gold Fire

YSL gold fire nail polish holidays 2017

YSL Gold Fire nail polish is my favorite of the two limited edition hues introduced by Yves Saint Laurent for the festive holiday season. Gold acts like a neutral, so it matches everything. This is a color I can easily wear during the day, or rock at an evening soiree.

This is a glitter nail polish. The glitter bits inside YSL Gold Fire are long and don’t stick out, or cause a rough surface. I tested out YSL Gold Fire nail polish with one base coat, and two coats of color. I did not use a top coat. The gold color is sparkling and shiny. The texture is rather smooth; unlike many glitter polishes which can be rough and catch on things. Don’t you hate it when your nail polish snags your clothing? This one won’t! Love that!

YSL Gold Fire nail polish is long lasting, and won’t chip easily. I love how strong it is, and how festive it! This is my favorite of the two colors from the YSL holiday 2017 nail polish collection named “Dazzling Lights.’

YSL Holiday 2017 nail polish: Red Lights

ysl red lights nail polish holidays 2017 review

This color, YSL Red Lights nail polish, is a beautiful cherry-pink-red. Think of it as a pinkish cherry red. I love the color, and I am not a big red nail polish fan. The pink tinge is just enough to make this an easy red to wear daily without looking too much like a fire engine.

The glitter in YSL Red Lights nail polish is small. This is where the problem comes in. Since the glitter bits are small, they bunch up in the second coat. I used one base coat, and two coats of color. When I applied the first coat, I thought it looked perfect; I should have left it. The second coat is where I ran into the problem. The glitter clumped together causing a rough surface. Next time I apply YSL Red Lights nail polish, I will only wear one coat. Photo shown with two coats.

I love the sparkle in this nail polish. It really glistens in the light. It will be fun to wear with only one coat this holiday season, for special occasions. There is something very festive about this color. It just screams Christmas! Love!

The YSL holiday 2017 nail polish collection, “Dazzling Lights,” is a beautiful, classic holiday collection. It has the two colors we really need to get through the holiday party season. I can’t wait to wear them more!
