one-minute miracle INCOGNITO MANI
FEMININE & FRESH The floral embroidery on this smart pencil skirt is a romantic touch that elevates it beyond office-wear. LEG LENGTHENER Snakeskin adds subtle texture to these pumps, while the pointed toe and nude hue work together to help elongate Lively’s legs.
If below-the-knee pencil skirts feel too stuffy for you, try one with a front slit; it adds a youthful touch.
A decorative mani on the go and in seconds flat? No problem. These pens are easy to use and don’t stink, so you can apply them no matter where you are. And although they were designed for nail art, they can also boost a tired mani when you realize you’re going somewhere important (a fashion show, par exemple) or touch up the tiny chips that will inevitably appear when you wear the season’s trendy light nail polish shades. —ALEX LAWS
