I got my order from Anderson Pens!!! The first thing I did was fill my Pelikan demonstrator (@pelikan_international) pen with the J Herbin Stormy Grey sample I got! I let the pen sit for a couple of minutes and the golden shimmer was already settling! And look at the ink drops (on stone paper). I'm in awe. #andersonpens #jherbin #pelikan #demonstrator #fountainpen #fountainpenink #stormygrey #omg #sheen #grey #gray #gold #sheen #inkdrop

#pressrelease from @jinsoon for #NYFW. A clean matte nail! Vera Wang Fall/Winter 2015 Nails by Jin Soon Choi, JINsoon Overall Look: An effortless, natural buff Nail Inspiration: For the Vera Wang Fall/Winter 2015 Collection, Jin Soon Choi created a raw, matte nail for the modern woman who is always on the go. With no time for chipped polish, she keeps her nails well-groomed, clean and smooth by following a few simple tips and applying one coat of Matte Maker— no buffing required. How-To Steps: 1. File and clean nails, removing all traces of polish and oil residue 2. Apply one coat of JINsoon Matte Maker for a smooth satin finish Jin’s Tips For The Look:  Apply Cuticle Oil Daily Cuticle oil is a purse essential, especially in winter. Look for oil that contains Vitamin E and make sure to apply it around the cuticle as well as the nail bed, rubbing it in until it is all but absorbed.  Keep Cuticles Well-Groomed At home, I generally recommend not cutting the cuticles as they damage very easily if too much is cut off, making them raggedy and prone to infection. Instead, I recommend pushing back the cuticles around once a week to maintain the shape.  Don’t Over-Shape The Nail For this look, you want to keep the natural nail shape. Gradually file the nail and be sure not to take off too much or make it overly round. #JINsoon #verawang #nyfwnails #fashion #fashionweek #fashionweeknails #matte #nailpolish #nude #clean #nails

Magnifique! The french manicure moderne- The look I created for @AltuzarraStudio: - a generous coat of @essiepolish Adore-a-Ball tones down the pink nail bed and pops the white of the free edge, for a seamless canvas for the all-French team (sans moi). No free edge?
