Minted Republic calls this beautiful top -- the "Sharkbite Top." It's a statement piece all in itself, so I felt I could pair it with neutral items like my Forever 21 jeggings and plain black (platform) heels. The flowy material is lovely too, and both the cut and length is perfect! I also really like how if you get the material wet, visually, you can hardly tell!
Did you notice/like my lavender nail polish? If you follow me on twitter you might already know I custom made it with OPI "Alpine Snow" and Pure Ice "No Means No." Making your own polish is really easy but of course has both pros and cons. I think you can make almost any pastel color by mixing in some white with say green - to make mint, hot pink - to make bubblegum pink, cobalt blue - to make baby blue, and so on. You can also make some secondary colors, like green, orange, purple and a variety of browns.
The problem is that you might make too little or too much, and you have to work pretty fast before it dries on the mixing board. I say try it out though if you need a color pronto, to maybe match your dress or if you just can't wait to go find it in store (me). Also, mix enough for one hand at a time. It will be harder to tell if your hands don't match each other perfectly than to tell if two fingers on one hand are not the same shade.
