What Noel Says Matte-ers

Omgoodnesssss, I'm so clever and funny huh? Get it? "matte-ers," because I'm about to talk about matte nail polish! Hilaaaaaaaaaarious. Ok. First things first. Here is my new favorite nail polish color.

It looks lamer in this picture than in real life and usually I hate polish with glitter or sparkles, but I'm possessed by it. It's got this kind of weird periwinkle thing going on and it's semi-translucent, which I usually dislike, but it all works out somehow. PLUS, it's called Rainstorm, right? And I did my nails last night, and no joke, 2 hours later it started pouring and didn't stop ALL day. GET OUT, I know!

On a related note. Over Christmas I came across some matte top coat polish in the clearance bin. Since Noel mentioned it earlier, I figured I'd give it a try. Long story short, it's cooler than I imagined. It gives my nails such a clean and sharp look. Very modern. Here are some colors I can't wait to try it over.

Never would have thought to use it over a glitter polish, but it looks awesome here.

Long story short, I should listen to Noel more. Except when it comes to Prince of Persia. Ok. Time to go watch the Bachelor. I know, I know. Gag me with a chainsaw right?

Wedge me in.

Currently I want wedges, wedges, and more wedges! I'm just realizing they are everything I've been waiting for. They are comfortable, slightly more casual than heels, but still give me the height I cannot live without. These are my all time favorites.

Roco Line. Yoox collection
These have sort of a geriatric/orthopedic thing going on: fantastic.

Wet Seal
I have even thought about getting these hideously floral wedges from Wet seal. I don't know if I've shopped there since Freshman year of high school...

Sam Edelman Zoe Platform
These are EVERYWHERE on the internet, but I can't help it. They are everywhere, because they are rad. I'm throwing myself into the crowd.

Gray is so sick.
I really like this type of sole. It looks like it could withstand anything.
Jefferey Campbell
Love. Sold Out. Everywhere. *sigh

Ok, these are the shoes I'm very slowly convincing myself to get. A wedged clog. I think Rumi at fashiontoast has them, and I need. What do you think? Should I?

The mirrored detailed is so futuristic/industrial.

Simple enough to wear everyday.

I love the cut out wedges. Neat. and the higher the better.

These are also everywhere. But I cannot resist.

When I can afford $500 boots, these are what I'd buy.

No matter how hard I try to resist, every summer, I get nautical. I can't help it!
