You already know that I love nail polish, writing, and the colour green. But did you know that I love fashion, too?
While I’d never call myself a fashionista or style maven, I have subscribed to many fashion magazines since I was in elementary school, and I get just as excited about buying new clothes as I do about listening to amazing music. (Some of my favourite shows that I’ve watched are Project Runway, Fashion Police, and the old What Not to Wear.)
I enjoy participating in fashion trends, but haha, I know better than to try to partake in every single one. Basically I choose to follow the ones that fit into my personal style, although I also like to try new looks to broaden my horizons and to have fun. (Fashion, like beauty, is about having fun to me!)
PR sent me 4 press releases yesterday about how OPI Struts the Catwalk During New York Fashion Week. Although I’ve never posted anything like this on here, I felt it was something cool to share, so I hope that you’ll appreciate it.
To me, it’s very interesting seeing nail polish in action on the runway and to watch colour trends making their mark. Plus seeing the colours on different models shows you how versatile the hues really are.
