Although it’s natural that the Mondays usually tend to bring about the morning blues, there’s one thing to look forward to: MANICURE MONDAYS! And with your summer parties drawing near, sometimes a great nail art idea can spur major fashion inspiration and can actually help you find that perfect party dress for the sizzling season – in turn making you, one sizzling beautiful young lady in a breathtaking dress. So with this in mind, we decided to play the perfect matchmakers today and pair up our pretty dresses with some equally pretty nails. You should try this little project too. It not only gets your style and beauty energies flowing, but also helps in selecting the dress you really want, especially when you’re in indecisive fashion mode – trust us, we’ve all experienced that from time to time. Here’s our round-up in tribute to Manicure Monday.

As you know, we have this little obsession with beauty products. After all, every girl needs to match her perfect party dress with the right makeup essentials for a pretty and polished look…it’s the ultimate finishing touch. So at Camille La Vie, we’re making it our mission to not only bring you the most beautiful dresses, but we’re allotting some much-needed time and energy towards finding what we believe to be the MUST-HAVE (and most importantly, EFFECTIVE) beauty tools each season. And for Summer 2013, it’s all about light and pretty colors with a natural, sun-kissed look. For this post, our focus is pouty, gorgeous lips without the heavy, bold hues. And while we love a pretty color for our lips, especially when it comes in lovely packaging…we try to find ones that keep our puckers well-hydrated. Because really who wants a lip product that delivers color, but leaves them chapped and dry as you move through the day?
THE SOLUTION: Moisturizing lip color balms (because they’re seriously amazing).
These 6 products have faithfully made their way into our cosmetic bags and they’ll never leave. Try these and see for yourselves:
1. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment: it comes in a variety of colors and although a bit pricey, the end result is supple long-lasting lips. Our favorite, by far!
2. Clinique Almost There Lipstick: if you want to add more striking color (especially for evening affairs), this is a must. It also works as a moisturizing lip balm – SCORE!
3. Clinique Chubby Stick: it’s a fashion blogger favorite…and for great reason. This was one of the first ones we’ve tried…and it was love at first pout from here on out!
4. Neutrogena Moisture Smooth ColorStick: pretty much identical to the chubby stick in form and function, plus half the price…no complaints there.
5. Stila Color Balm Lipstick: gives a creamy color to your lips while adding the essential nourishing effects of a lip balm. It has a satin finish with a hint of shine. Love!
6. Smashbox Limitless Stain & Color Seal Balm: who doesn’t love a two-in-one? Especially if it pairs a long-wearing stain with an emollient balm. Wear it together for a colorful, lustrous sheen or alone. Either ways work wonders.
So which one tickles your fancy?
It’s time to gear up for summer and bring about some much-needed glow to your complexion. After all, if you want to exude major summer goddess appeal with any one of your gorgeous destination and party dresses, a great bronzer is key! Plus, it minimizes the risk of harmful UV rays to your skin, while achieving the ideal sun-kissed look.
