Nail Trend: Sideways French Manicure

The classic french manicure is always being reinvented using different colors and textures. The newest rendition on the trend is the sideways french manicure with a thin stripe of a different color on the left side of your nail. This is easily done by leaving space on the left side of your nail bare and painting it after you are done painting the other color. Another way to do this is by painting the nail completely and painting over the left side with a thin stripe of a darker color. You can use tape to get the stripe to have a straight edge.

Fashion Trend: Shattered Glass Dresses

I have seen pieces of shattered glass as the design on the bodice of dresses. The dresses usually have a strapless sweetheart neckline and a full frilly skirt. They are a popular selection for Prom. Is glass shiny enough to replace jewels? What do you think?

The jacket is typically styled in the school colors with a capital letter pertaining to the school on the front. You don't have to be in school to wear them anymore, because they have been seen everywhere from on adult celebrities to on the fashion runways.

Hair Trend: Victory Rolls

Victory rolls were a popular hairstyle worn by pin up girls in the 1940s. The hairstyle is made from pinning up hair from the sides and rolling them inwards. Then you can make it into an updo or leave the rest of your hair in loose curls. I think this hairstyle is a little too vintage for everyday wear and is better for a costume. What do you think? Do you like pin-up girl style?
