A Color Story :: New Weekend Filtersphoto by @ariellevey, edited with Weekend in Weekend

We are absolutely thrilled to announce our newest filter +pack in our A Color Story app, Weekend! Designed by the amazingly talented SoCal photographer, Arielle Vey, this +pack offers something a little different from the rest of the app. While we offer a lot options to achieve the bright, fresh look, we also LOVE Arielle's bold and rich photography. So we pretty much just gave her free reign to make filters she'd most want to use.

We couldn't have been more thrilled with the results! Best for sunsets, water, florals, and just everyday life, you can feel a little piece of California in each filter.

MoonMani  Hello, friends! Are you ready for this trendy mani? Psst, it's also really easy too! I love how simple it is to up your mani game with this technique. I couldn't help myself and just had to add a little glitz with some crystals I picked up from the craft store. You can absolutely keep it simple with just the half moon look OR give into the sparkle and add a little shine. ;) 

Supplies:
-small, stiff makeup brush
-polish remover
-polish of your choice
-top coat
-crystals
-reinforcement labels

MoonManiStep One: Place the reinforcement label on the bottom of your nail. Secure it as much as possible. This won't keep all the polish from running, but it does provide a good base and makes it much easier to clean up! For this mani, I found it easier to do one nail at a time. 

Step Two: After your label is in place, paint on two coats of polish. Immediately and carefully remove sticker. Don't worry, it won't be perfect yet!

Step Three (Optional): While the polish is still wet, drop a crystal in the center of your nail.

Step Five: Apply 1-2 coats of top coat to secure your crystal and give it a beautiful shine. Repeat steps for each nail.
