Target + Neiman Marcus Collection – Holiday 2012

It’s not exactly news anymore that Neiman Marcus and Target have partnered up with many top designers for a collaboration this holiday season (unless you have been living under a rock), but I’m nevertheless extremely (I mean this) excited to see all the items Target stores will have. Come December 1st, I’ll be one of those ladies fighting to get my hands on the merchandise.

What I like about this collaboration is that they have made something for everyone—from holiday dresses for little girls to chunky cardigans for men. You could score some great designer holiday gifts this year at Target. In the past, the designer collaborations Target featured would only cater to women, so it’s nice to see that this massive collaboration not only caters to everyone but also focuses on gifts.

Here are some of my favorite gift picks:

And here are my favorite “treat yourself” gift picks, because we deserve nice things for ourselves too!

Will you be storming your local target (or crazily refreshing your browser while on target.com) for the holiday merchandise, or will you be passing up on these items this year? If you are planning on buying stuff, what do you have your eye on?

Glow in the Dark Nails

Halloween is the perfect time to experiment with different “dark” manis. Throughout the month I have been sporting crackle/shatter manis and more, but nothing screams Halloween more than GLOW IN THE DARK Nails!

This look was extremely easy to achieve, since the nail polish I used was glow in the dark polish. I am wearing Sofia by Julep. I layered a couple of shades of white polish on my nails, and then layered another couple shades of Sofia on top. The white makes the polish pop, especially since the green is actually sheer. Normally I don’t recommend wearing more than 3 coats of nail polish, but this was an exception, especially since Sofia dried quickly.

In order to get the polish to really glow, you have to shine a light all over the nails and immediately step into a dark space. The glow doesn’t last too long–in fact, you can probably watch it fade. However, it can glow pretty bright, depending on what you layer the polish over.

Have you tried any special nail art for this spooky time of year?
