A “Clutch” Idea

On the Go…  

 If you’re a working girl and have to carry a large bag for your laptop or work papers, then you need a clutch for those get-away breaks… The clutch is perfect for holding your necessities and it’s so easy to just tuck under your arm and go… Take it out for lunch or to grab a quick latte! (It can also help you sneak out of the office early on a Friday…)

Day and Night…
Spend the day shopping, then enjoy happy hour with your girlfriends… without stopping to change outfits! This bag has a detachable and adjustable strap, making it easy to throw over your shoulder when your hands are full during the daytime. Then when happy hour rolls along, remove the strap and *voila!* your purse transitions into a clutch, giving your outfit a chic, evening look.
And just in case happy hour turns a little too “happy”!!! :):):)… Put the strap back on so your clutch is safe.

Out on the Town? Leave your baby at home… 
Baby? No, not really…  Just that big bag on your arm that holds pretty much your entire life and hangs on your shoulder like a baby. Going out on the town can be difficult with a big bag… For example, you can’t dance because the extra  5 lbs. on one shoulder is giving you an off-balance tilt effect.. Plus, it’s a drag babysitting a purse when all you want to do is dance!  But the worst thing about hauling around a big bag at the bar is when you try to get a drink and unintentionally keep slapping people in the face with your “baby”… Yikes! 
Adopt a new trend: the over-sized clutch! You can easily hug your clutch, hold a martini in one hand, and give that hot guy your number, all at once! You’ll feel less babysitter-in-the-bar-ish, and more sex-in-the-city-ish!

NCLA: Nail Couture, Los Angeles

ncLA Electro, $16
ncLA Secession Strikes, $16
ncLA I See You, $16
DIY – Easy as pie!!! 
Supplies Needed: ncLA nail wraps, base coat, top coat, nail file, baby scissors
  1.  Just like a normal mani, start by applying the base coat (let it dry!)
  2.  Choose each nail foil that fits closest to your nail size. Peel the nail foil from the sheet.
  3. Apply round side towards cuticle. Stretch and remove all excess foil around the shape of the nail (this is where baby scissors come in handy!)
  4. Apply pressure to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles in the foil. Remove any excess foil with a nail file, using downward strokes.
  5. Apply top coat (let it dry!) and it’s a wrap!!
Some Insider Tips: 
  • Re-apply top coat 3-4 times, then once daily to get that shiny, shellacy look!
  • You don’t have to use the entire set all at once.. I like to pair mine with a fun color to really make the wraps pop! Check out NCLA Nail Lacquers below… 
  • Be creative and have fun with it!!!
