Spicing Up the UK Glamour Awards

I love the Spice Girls. To me, they defined my childhood. Baby Spice was always my favorite though I also adored Ginger Spice. I have a thing for redheads, I think. I just think being a redhead is so pretty and unique. Anyway, the other day Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, and Geri Halliwell came out to receive the award for "Best Band" at the UK Glamour awards. They all looked fabulous, I especially love Geri's hair. Sorry, the picture may be a bit small.

L-R: Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice)

Mel B and Geri are sporting very light tips. Geri's are more neutral while Mel B's are definitely on the lighter side. However, given their wackier (in a good way) and more colorful dresses, keeping your tips neutral might be the best option as to not detract from the dress. I do think that Mel B could have sported a vampy, sexy black/dark purple to complement her dress as well but I do love the contrast of the lighter nail color against her skin. Emma on the other hand went for the red/black contrast, a classic.

Emma's nails remind me of an tip in the latest issue of InStyle, in which they say how stylish short red nails can be. For once, I'm actually agreeing with a fashion magazine on a nail-related tip! Yeah my slight fever might be back again huh? But really, I think short bright-red nails are youthful and fun, definitely great for the summer.

I love the spice girls, too. Ginger was definitely my fav. I liked her look back then better -- not so keen on this California-anorexic thing she's got going on right now. Oh well.
