If you are a budget happy individual, that likes the manicure and pedicure look, but do not like to spend the dollars on it week after week, these nail pens are something to look into.
I am sure that you have experimented with polishing your own nails before. If you have not even attempted, you should take this opportunity to try.
1. Wash, clean and dry your hands very well.
2. Apply a skin moisturizer.
3. Wipe off any remaining oils from around your nails and nail beds before you begin the polish.
4. Use a base coat, the polish color of choice and a top coat.
When creating a nail design hold off on the top coat, until you are done with your creation. Here is a picture of designs that you can do with the NPW Nail Art Pens. Price - $14. Follow this link to purchase them.

If you are like me, you have previously wondered how to put mascara on your lower lash without getting it on your face?
Well, wonder no more. Take a plastic spoon and place the rounded side up and the tip of the spoon under your eye lid. Apply mascara and done! How simple was that?!

Today is the anniversary day that our precious gem of an R&B songbird Aaliyah "Babygirl" Haughton passed on to a better place. She spent January 16, 1979 to August 25, 2001 blessing the world with her presence and although the 22 years that she was here seems short, I am just thankful to have been able to watch her live as long as I did.
On August 25th, of that dreaded year 2001 I remember receiving a call from a friend (that is also no longer with us), being asked, "you cried didn't you?" And I remember shamelessly saying yes. Aaliyah was the first person that I had never met or even known personally that I felt a connection with. She felt like a sister to me, an icon, if not just a pretty girl with enormous talent that was living her dream and giving me the chance to see it. The only poster that I had in my sibling shared room and the only poster that went to college with me was of Aaliyah.
Aaliyah's song, "One in a Million" was one of the first songs that my dance group Basic Instinct danced to, over and over again. I vividly remember the moments when "One in a Million" and "4 Page Letter" were played at my high school prom, more than I remember any other thing from that day.
The Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Ginuwine, Blackground Records situation seemed like such a good touch to Aaliyah's image. I always wondered was it their closeness (the family like love) that gave Aaliyah the push at times to go ahead and reach for more. If you listen to her music, watch her videos, her movies or anything else that she has graced, it is classic, but was also cutting edge.
Aaliyah still lives in my heart and in my soul when I sing her music, perform her dance steps and watch her music videos or films. "Rock the Boat" is one of my favorite depictions of her spirit and her kindness that other people often talked about. The visuals (Hype Williams) of that music video are very angelic and Fatima her choreographer did something new with the steps too.
Aaliyah represented the young lady made for stardom, but still kept her innocence. I am sure that she did not live the "perfect" life but her image was never tarnished. She never gave away too much in a video or interview. She was always classy, on point and seemed to be herself and that is what makes Aaliyah a beautiful person inside and out.
I love you forever Aaliyah!

The show took brief pauses in between each scene to give away raffle prizes and this really kept the attention of the guests. The artsgarden atmosphere was very charming with the sun shining through the window onto the runway as the models worked their magic. The hostesses were very friendly and the show MCs showed charisma.
We give Harrison College a notable round of applause on their event and a job well done. The images above are of some of the looks that I was able to capture.
The event was jam packed and room was limited. Some of the designers featured in the show and here are Juice Mami, Butterfly Couture and apparel from Runway Diva Boutique. I hope that you enjoy the images from the show.

Is the cover Notable or Not? Your thoughts?

Rihanna was recently spotted around in Barbados wearing a pair yellow tye dye shorts from Urban Outiftters that are priced at $54. Ashley Madekwe British actress in Revenge was also seen wearing tye dyed shorts around the end of May. This pair or a similar pair to hers was also spotted at Urban Outfitters priced on sale at $29.
And I just happened to have a submitted image from a Notable Styles reader of a DIY pair of tye dyed cut off shorts that is very similar to the shorts that Rihanna and Ashley are seen wearing here. So I felt that this was the perfect opportunity to post the photo. With just:
- A pack of Rit dye
- A bucket, some water
- A pair of scissors
- Gloves (optional)

I am generally a fan of any music video directed by Hype Williams (TLC's Waterfall; Aaliyah's Rock the Boat, Kanye West's All of the Lights....) the way that Hype incorporates graphics and special effects into his creations is absolutely breath taking. In the case of the new Brandy video featuring Chris Brown, Hype Williams has transcended the industry once again. The color ways, effects, lighting and over all fluidity of the video are modern, creative and exciting to watch.
Brandy has stepped up her choreography game for this vid and I think she is doing a great job. The song Put It Down is catchy, I like the hook, the production by Bangladesh beats hard and all is well for Brandy's 1st single. Let's go Bran. It is good to see Chris Brown in a different light as well. He is pretty much a relaxed feature, not dancing all over the place, just giving off a presence. I like it!
Brandy's hair, make up, and apparel styling for this video is pretty much on point! She was doing a lot of pattern mixing in her looks and I liked that. She wore several hairstyles all of which looked fresh and complimented each scene well. Bravo! Job well done Brandy.
See below to view the video
What do you all think of Brandy's new video? Notable or Not?

Is this for real? Artists, photographers, stylists, models, fans, I need feedback on this. What is the genuine creative idea behing pegging Michael Phelps for Louis Vuitton Brand Ambassador (I am fully aware of his Olympian status) and for the goggles while he is in the tub?
Today, I would like to feature two styles that really caught my attention. I like the simple way that both of the outfits were put together, but the level of difficulty increased with the unique pairings of the pieces. For instance, a light turquoise blouse paired with tye dye pants and artistic blush smeared pointy toed pumps - LOVE!
