Nail Trends for 2017

Hi Dolls!

So I’ve been following 2017 beauty trends closely since the beginning of the year and recently nails and nail art have been making an appearance in my research. The style that I have been seeing a lot of is Chrome Nail Polish.  It is said to be the ‘hottest nail trend of 2017.’ 

Now, metallic nail polishes have always been popular, but Chrome Nails takes that mirrored, high-shine finish to the next level.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a look you can recreate with traditional nail polish. For that mirrored look you will need to go to a nail bar where they use a metallic powder to buff the nails to that intense chrome finish. But if you aren’t feeling as fancy, you can get a similar look with nail wraps. 

Also little tip for those of you who are into gel polish, this is everything when it comes to needing a good remover:  Vikas 6-piece gel nail remover.

These are a couple of my favorite chrome/hologram daring looks.

Look how cool and different these designs are!!  If you are really feeling it, I would say go ahead and try Macs Pro longwear paint pot for some matching liner.

If you want to still do it from home, you can try to recreate this look with Chanel Holographic Nail Polish or Juleps Holographic Nail polish.

Perfect Faux Fur Jacket

 

unnamed-7I’m gifting this gorgeous hat to one of you! All you have to do is subscribe to my blog, follow me on Instagram and tag two friends. I will pick the winner by 2/10.

I got my coat from Zara …..but you can find almost an exact replica of it here on sale now for only $99.  This Coat is one of my favorite coats for winter! I wore it a few days while in Park City because it is so versatile, and all I had to do was change the scarf and pant color (and of course my lip color…LOL) and I had a completely new look. I love the Nordstrom version of this coat, because the faux fur is removable and it becomes a totally different coat.

 

unnamed-6I also loved that I could add this hat from Bebe and change up the look as well…(click here to find this hat). My leopard scarf I got from Express  a few years ago but check out this similar one here for only $12 dollars

These waterproof boots from Target (on sale for only $33 dollars) have become one of my favorite go to pair of boots. They are soo comfortable, they look great and are an a great price! I wore them with little sock toppers to create a fun look. unnamed-3

I found these super cute beige pants at Express at a great price and they matched perfectly with my hat and the faux fur on the trim of my coat.

My Lipstick color in this pic is Mac  in the color Barbeque, and my black Sunnies are by Celine (check out my last blog for details on where to find them)unnamed-8

With my love at the Montage in Deer Valley.unnamed-9

It was another perfect beautiful Day in Park City Utah and it was wonderful spending the day in Deer Valley at the gorgeous grounds of the Montage Resort! I mean look at those amazing views of the entire valley.

Orange you something 😜

This weekend I went on a fun two day getaway to the wine county in Paso Robles and of course I had to have the perfect ensemble for my look.  I decided to base my outfit around the color orange because my main staple (my shorts) were orange! I got these shorts at Zara a year ago but you can find similar ones here http://rstyle.me/cz-n/btkfnwb48tf


I planned the rest of my outfit around this great pop of color for summer. My top is also from Zara but I couldn’t find it on their website so you can find a similar top at Bebe here http://rstyle.me/cz-n/btkfdvb48tf


I loved the sexy romantic feel of this top perfect for the wine country.  I layered it with a gorgeous necklace from Kendra Scott and my watch and handbag is from Micheal Kors.


I love finding things in my closet that help bring an outfit together and this orange and white scarf was the perfect accessory to add to my purse. I got the scarf from Nordstroms a few years back and it’s Kate Spade.


My Sunnies are Tom Ford and I got them from @optxeyewear on Instagram (my new favorite pair because they go with everything)


I finished off my look with the persevere pair of comfy yet fashionable lace up sandals by BCBC and I got them for a great price at Nordstrom Rack

The weather was hot so this was the perfect outfit to keep me cool but also looking cute for my day of exploring and wine tasting.

Here are some other pics from the day. Happy shopping!

All Black with a little Bling

DSC00177Normally I don’t do all black but I was wanting to go with a simple and timeless look for the my Holiday Party.  I had found this AMAZING skirt from Nordstroms that I was just obsessed with! So my whole outfit was designed around this fabulous skirt.

First I decided to add a simple black bodysuit because I wanted something sleek and not too overwhelming for the top because the focus was going to be the skirt and the fabulous bow.DSC00088

Next I added a Chanel Brooch to my assemble for a little extra flare and I decided to put it right in the middle of the bow which added a perfect touch of bling  which also helped break up the solid black.

I added one of my favorite pairs of Valentino’s Shoes to complete my look, which helped bring class as well as pulled in the bling from the Chanel brooch.  I keep my accessories simple and only wore some simple black and diamond studs, no other pieces were necessary with this look.DSC00098

One of my favorite things to do when planning an outfit/ look is to decide what kind of hairstyle and makeup look will really compliment the style.

I really wanted a fabulous yet fun hairstyle to make this look feel fresh, and timeless.  So I decided on a braided hairstyle and my hairstylist Victor Paul and I had a great time with this concept.  We added my extra long halo of hair so my braid could be long down the front and he braided the front of my hair, then he took that braid and twisted it into a flower like bun on the side of my headDSC00108

Then we tied a rubber band around the remaining hair and pulled it all to one side and then fishtailed that portion of the hair in order to make a a long fabulous braided style. This is honestly one of my most favorite hairstyles I have ever done.DSC00064

This look allowed my face to show more, and so I opted for more of a natural look on my eyes, only doing eyeliner on the top and no liner on the bottom on my eyes. Using extra flirty lashes from my http://www.shopgretchenchristine.com line called Doll Me Up Lashes.  These are just fabulous lashes that give you that doll like effect.DSC00084I used a mixture of my Gretchen Christine lip liner in the color Rose all over my lip with my  Dior Red Lip Stick on top. As you know when you do a strong lip it is better to keep the eyes more simple.

I felt I accomplished the exact look I was going for and it was a fabulous night with my friends celebrating the Holiday. Here are some more angels and pics of the look

Hope you enjoyed your Holidays as well.  Show me your fabulous fashion and beauty looks on instagram and tag #GetGlamwithGretchen for a chance to be re-grammed.

In the Holiday Spirit

Happy Holidays Everyone! In order to get into the holiday spirit I decided to find some cute Holiday fashion.  So of course for some fun looks without breaking the bank I went to H&M for this super festive sparkly bow top, and to Target for this great Red floppy hat!  My puffy black skirt is from a few years back  (and not available anymore) but you can find one similar here from Chicwish, and the leather jacket on top of the ensemble makes it all come together.   Of course I am rocking my Gretchen Christine handbag and my Olivia Hines strappy lace ups.

Hair by the fabulous Victor Paul at Victor Paul salon in Costa Mesa. He books up quick so give him a call for the perfect holiday color and style (714) 966-1188.  I have my “halo” in my hair for extra long length, so be sure to ask him about making a custom piece to match you hair color.

Happy Holidays!

These boots were made for walking

New boots from Akirachicago.com

Beautiful fringe booties from Akira

imageimageimageimageimageimage

I’m loving these new fringe booties in this camel color from Akira that goes with so many colors for fall! (type “lovegretchen15” for 15% off your order) I love neutral color palettes  and that’s why I had to have these shoes for fall. As we know fringe is all the rage right now, but since it’s still summer weather in Cali, I paired it with some crisp white shirts from Bebe (a few years back) and a Blush colored Blouse from Akira.

I accesorized it with a vintage faux fur Micheal Kors bag and my Rayban sunglasses to finish off the look.

Hair was put into simple spiral curls with a one inch curling iron, and lipstick is from my shopgretchenchristinecollection in the color Titillate.  Happy Fall and Happy Shopping!
