  • Star Wars Day Inspiration for Prom

    With Star Wars Day is officially here (May 4th)! We know many girls are still on the hunt for their perfect prom dress, so we wanted to send out some good vibes today. So, without further adieu... May the Force (ahem... May the FOURTH!) be with you in aligning the stars and finding your perfect prom dress today. In the words of Yoda, "Find your prom dress, you will."

    Scala 48435Since today is also Manciure Monday, we're definitely feeling the force in putting together a Star Wars inspired prom look! We found some Star Wars nail art looks we loved on Pinterest, which you can see above, and we paired it with a prom dress that is so Star Wars worthy: Scala 48435! The stars (and galaxies) will align for the perfect evening gown when you slip into this electrifying creation. Radiantly lustrous material is overlaid by intricate patterns for a richly textured look, and glittering sequins add a healthy dose of glitz. From its sweetheart neckline to its sweep train, this gown reminds us of the beauty of the stars above.

    Even though you probably won't be rocking Star Wars nails at prom, we thought this Scala prom dress was the perfect way to bring a little geeky inspiration to the dance floor. That's not to say we'd totally be all about rocking a bold nail look like the ones above at prom! After all, prom night is all about you - be comfortable and confidence in whatever outfit you choose.

    Or, if you want to bring some Star Wars fun to After Prom, we love Faviana 7210 in gold because it reminds us of C-3P0! The foil jersey dress material glistens just like C-3PO.... in a totally sexy way in this case, of course! This dress used to be $278, but is now on sale for only $194.99 (with only a few left), so it makes for a super affordable After Prom dress that you can easily wear again for many other events.

    Faviana 7210Want to add some extra fun? If your prom date is totally into Star Wars and geeky culture, too, get him to wear a cute Star Wars bow tie like this one or this one with his prom tuxedo! We're pretty sure all of your date's guy friends will be geeking out over the bow tie and wishing their prom date was as cool as you!

    May the Fourth be with you today, and especially on your prom day!

     

  • A Chic Halloween Black Cat Look You'll Love!

    Halloween is less than two weeks away, and with today being the 2nd to last Manicure Monday before Halloween is here, we have more Halloween inspired looks for you! Last week, we showed you an easy way to get a vampire or witch look with a little black dress, and today we have more LBD Halloween ideas for you! Read on to get a totally cute Halloween black cat look!

    Sherri Hill 21156 Black Cat Halloween Look

    This so chic black cat look matches Sherri Hill style 21156 in black with Baylee by Sizzle pumps in black. Sherri Hill style 21156 is a one-of-a-kind dress that features a strapless design, sweetheart neckline, and low back style. The fitted bodice is embellished with elegantly designed with beads and sequin embellishments. Baylee by Sizzle is a beaded platform pump with all over jewels and sparkle. All that's needed to finish the black cat look are cute cat ears, cat eye glasses (and cat eye makeup!), and a cat inspired manicure.

    This entire look was inspired by the cute manicure idea we saw above, created by lifeisbetterpolished. We've been getting in the Halloween mood here at Rissy Roo's by trying out cute Halloween inspired looks for Manicure Monday today, and we thought this one was just so chic! Purple is a great color to rock to show your Halloween spirit if you don't like the traditional orange and black colors. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a little bit (or a lot) of sparkle!

    Of course, there might be another Halloween look you think of when it comes to Sherri Hill style 21156... a vampire! Last year, we created a DIY Vampire Makeup Tutorial and used this dress to finish off the look. Either way, you'll look super chic for Halloween, and it's one of our favorite dresses to rock for Homecoming and Prom, too!

     

  • Mix 'n' Match Patterns for #ManicureMonday!

    Most salon goers tend to stick with one, or two, colors when getting a mani/pedi; however there are some risk takers out there who love to experiment with new and exciting patterns! You have ten finger nails that act as a blank canvas, waiting for you to fill them up with beautiful and unique nail art! Let's take a look at some of the most popular mix and match nail patterns:

    Coral pink mix n' match nails

    How adorable is this mani!? The base color, which is a coral pink, is the perfect color for summer time! The jewels on the middle nail will shine in the summer sun, as well as the silver embellishments located on the pinky and thumb nail. The white polka-dot and stripes are the perfect mediums to balance the nails out and make sure they don't look TOO over the top!

    Black, white, and gold mix n' match nails

    The Roo Girls are LOVING this beautifully done mix and match manicure! It reminds us of the Flapper Era, which is extremely popular now due to the release of The Great Gatsby remake. The baroque design, located on the thumb, is also a trend we look forward to seeing A LOT of this fall. The gold polish adds just enough glitz for the nails to be noticed. We couldn't have asked for a trendier mani!

    Blue and floral mix n' match nails

    The mani above is a bit more simple than the previous two; but it is still a mix and match mani, nonetheless! The manicurist decided to keep the middle, pinky and thumb finger a bold blue and add a little spark of gold to accentuate the gold glitter in the pointer finger nail. The ring finger design can't hep but to remind us of a Betsey Johnson design! A lovely yellow with pretty pink flowers; these fingers are runway ready!

  • Perfect Neon Ombre Looks for #ManicureMonday

    Last week we talked about great summer nail trends to try out, and two of them that we're loving are neon and ombre. Well, this #ManicureMonday we're combining those two trends, because it doesn't get much better than a look with both neon AND ombre in it! We've been loving all of the ways you can rock neon in your outfits and on your nails, but with ombre being such a big hit lately, too, we asked...why separate the trends?? So, here's something we've been completely obsessing over: the neon ombre manicure! And, best yet, if you're looking to pair your new neon ombre nails with your next formal outfit, read on for our favorite match-ups.
