For Hire

Black. Yes, black. As a nail polish to be exact. While this is not one of those commercial shopping blogs which points out new things to buy daily, it may seam odd that I show you girls this item here... but just keep reading my posts and you will soon see that this leads up to something.... it's the start of something, you will see...

So, in case you are unaware: it is time to store the day glow colors and shimmering glosses and trade them in for this: Black matte (flatte) nail polish.

From Knock Out Cosmetics, the creation of celebrity makeup artist Mike Potter. Flatte black nail polish. Starts flatte, wears into satin.

You can get a head-turning long-lasting, no-shine look by painting on just one coat of polish. Once dry, if you prefer, buff to a luscious satin. Do not use a top coat. You'll lose the whole flatte effect if you do. This polish is such a refreshing departure from the high-gloss look you've grown up with; it's soft quiet, subtle and oh so stylish.

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
