|Smoky eyes and feather hair extensions on Hilary Duff and Selena Gomez|
As the summer winds down, it's not too late to take a walk on the wild side. Embrace one of these popular tends. I don't think they will end anytime soon:
1. Sultra's Natural Feather Hair Accents are authentic rooster feathers, dyed in 4 color combinations that you clip in your hair like a braid. They are easy to attach and remove. You can also curl, wave and straighten them for a 1970s glam look. Costs: $25 at Sephora.
2. Another fun fad is wearing fancy patterned nail polish. But you don't have to spend a fortune, or hours at a nail salon to get your nails done. Sally Hansen offers a set of new Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips that you press on yourself at home and go. Get intricate graphics and colorful patterns. There are 23 color combinations. It is real nail polish, but requires no time to dry and lasts about 10 days. Costs: $10.
3. And, the smoky eye endures. Sephora sells a Beauty In A Box Smoky Eyes Patelle that is mistake proof. It is a collection of handpicked colors, tools and illustrated instructions on how to achieve classic smoky eyes in six steps. Costs: $36.
With these fashion-forward accessories, there's absolutely no need to stick with the same-old, same-old. Here's your chance to break out of your comfort zone and have a little uninhibited fun.
