Mandii's Fall 2012 Essie and OPI Nail Polish Picks...

Hey Lovelies, Mani Monday here at Mandii A La Mode and this is a just a quick post I put together showcasing my favorite nail polishes for Fall from the latest Essie and OPI collections.  

From the Essie Stylenomics Fall 2012 collection:


From the OPI Germany Collection:


Are there any particulars that have caught your eye and absolutely love? Let me know! My favorite out of both collections has to be Essie's Skirting the Issue- it's such a beautiful burgundy color.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram under @MandiiALaMode - usually you'll find swatches of the latest nail polish to make it on my digits for Mani Monday!

Be on the lookout for a giveaway this week! So excited to share!

Much love as always,

Helping Hands - Helping Those Affected by Hurricane Sandy

As I sit writing this in my comfy home, listening to the tv and my boys playing, I can not express how this is all a blessing. You see, as many of you already know, I'm a New Yorker and this week Hurricane Sandy completely took over our North Eastern Coast.

Many parts of NYC was affected, from the lower part of Manhattan to the inland and coastal areas of the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, and Staten Island. Not to mention the complete devastation of the Jersey Shoreline.

People across these areas have no power and no water. Even worse, some have lost their homes and even lost ones. Knowing people personally, who have been heavily affected by this natural disaster, makes my heart ache, wishing resources were there to help them get their lives back together as soon as possible.
