On the Street: China Glaze Street Chic

Next to nail polish blogs, my favorite internet destinations are street style fashion blogs. Sure, it's fun to look at runway shows and gorgeous editorial creations, but street style is fascinating, inspirational, and endlessly unique. Street style fashion blogs share portraits of real people and their fashion concoctions, and the best part is that on a fashion blog, you can ogle and examine an outfit without feeling awkward about staring :)

Three of my favorite street style blogs are:
The Sartorialist
Mr. Newton
The Photodiarist/The Photodiarist in Color

One nail polish worth a long look is China Glaze "Street Chic". "Street Chic" is a warm taupey-brown shade that subtly declares you a fashionista. "Street Chic" falls on the milk chocolate end of the mushroom polish spectrum - I adore the small dash of dusty-ness but it's the lovely warm tones that set this shade apart from its less saturated relatives. With a smart shade like "Street Chic", it's no wonder that the warm, dusty brown trend was one of my top 5 fall polish trends!

In NYC, China Glaze can be purchased at Beauty 35 at 505 8th Ave (corner of 35th St and 8th Ave) As of March 2012, Beauty 35 no longer carries China Glaze and Beauty Plus Salon at 2568 Broadway (between 96th and 97th).
