Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel

Last month during my visit to New York City for Fashion Week I stopped by at Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel to get my hair blow dried. It was a much needed blow out. The New York weather makes my hair so frizzy, and what I call” “poofy” i.e. too much volume (LOL I’m not even sure this word exist in the English dictionary). And running around town all day, whose got time to do their own hair?!!

Fabulous Anthony at the NEW Fekkai Madison at The Mark Hotel just gave me Hollywood waves! Luv him:)

I crossed Central Park in a cab all the way to the East Side and arrived at the Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel. The building was so pretty and newly renovated which is kind of rare for NYC, everything is normally so ancient. My service was impeccable, and the best part was that I got to do my nails and my hair at the same time. I felt like I can totally can get used this life. Wouldn’t you?:)

Loved my hair stylist Anthony! He blew dry my hair and gave the perfect Hollywood curls without even using a curling iron. And Gabriela who did my nails with Essie Sexy Divine did a great job in making my manicure last for 4 days! I yet need to investigate which top coat she used on my nails. I assume it was Essie as well.

The Zoe Report: Chanel Intermezzo Nail Polish

I totally admire Rachel Zoe. I know, another celebrity. But, I love her infectious passion for her work. It’s the way to live life, love what you do. Rachel is the quintessential example of that. A true inspiration!

I receive The Zoe Report though my email, and I must admit that I’m always very curios to find out what are Rachel’s latest style & fashion picks. Here is one: Chanel Intermezzo Nail Polish, $23. I love white as my nail polish. It’s a nice break from all the other dark colors, such as: red, black, purple. And it looks very clean, understated, yet very polished.

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark and Essie Wicked 249

It looks like the dark or almost black nail polish is in once again.  Many celebrities have been seen sporting this look.  Deep nail polish shades seem to go well with short and squared nails.  It may be a bold look for you, but since so many cute girls display the new vamp trend then it feels almost OK to try it yourself.  And for the British readers, we have a picture of the very famous glamour model actress and business woman, Abby Titmus.  Abby is perfectly manicured in deep shade nail polish as feathered in her new 2007 Abby Titmus Calendar.
