The moment you start reading Alex Yeske’s dreams + jeans blog, you know one thing for sure: the girl has excellent taste. Musing on everything from fashion to beauty to design, the recent Syracuse grad has a knack for spotting pretty things — a skill that no doubt serves her well in her day job as a graphic designer for Madewell. This week, we’re lucky enough to have her guest blogging for us about everything from her beauty must-haves to how to get the perfect blow dry.

I’m a nail polish addict — ask anyone who knows me. I own more than 70 polishes (and know all of their names!). I’m a huge fan of trying out new polish trends and there are several right now that I have my eye on.
I’m obsessed with this bright graphic design (above). It looks like it requires a lot of time and patience, but it’s so fun and unusual.
This is an awesome update on the French manicure and a great option when you can’t decide on a color.
I can’t wait to give this sparkly look a try this holiday season, it will definitely be my go-to manicure. What’s particularly nice is that it will work well with any color scheme, whether it’s gray, brown, or plum.
I love the simplicity of this look, but you could definitely make it more eye catching by substituting in more vibrant colors.
