Black Tie Nails

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend the Mayor's Masked Ball by a client. The black tie event was held at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta. This is an annual event to benefit the United Negro College Fund hosted by the Mayor of the City of Atlanta that began with the Honorable Andrew Young. Supposedly all of the who's who of Atlanta was in the house. 

The weirdest part of the night, in my opinion, was the entertainment. Guess who it was? Seriously, you will never guess. Now you know that Atlanta is like a mecca for entertainment, right. Well, the featured artist was...Keith Sweat...-_-.....yeah I don't even feel like commenting on that because that was just plain ridiculous to me. So just chuckle amongst yourselves.

Anyway, of course I wore black. A long black dress that I found at Dillards at the VERY last minute- tres sexy. I also found some really hot shoes at DSW at the last minute as well (which Im excited about because I can also wear them to a January wedding that I'm in). Check out the pic.

The crazy thing is that I didn't take one picture at the event. Although I did tweet like crazy for as long as I could before my phone died.

More importantly, I was rocking the cu-utest sparkly red polish- Color Club in Santa's Cinnamon. Not only was it extra spicy but it also smelled like cinnamon!!! Now I have never been a red chick but this polish is hot. What do you think?

A definite keeper that I will wear again. I can't think of any other red that I would say that about...I may rock this again on NYE- haven't decided yet.

This was actually my first time using Color Club which I found at the Sally's in Morrow, GA (by Southlake). The funny thing was after leaving Sally's I went to Ross where I found a whole collection of Color Club polish which of course I bought. So more Color Club reviews coming soon...Besos, P&P.


  1. Fun! I love wearing glittery red nail polish for special events, so I'm going to try to track down Santa's Cinnamon. The Mayor's Masked Ball sounds like an amazing fundraiser.

  2. Yes, its a really fun polish! Try your closest Sally's. And the Ball was really nice. I look forward to attending next year.

  3. This looks so great on you! I LOVE red polish. It makes my hands feel so pretty!!

  4. Hi MariJo! Yeah this red was hot! Thanks for suggesting that I wear red!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on Pearls and Polish. It's always nice to know that someone is actually reading this! LOL...Besos, P&P.
