Chanel Nuit Magique Collection

Mani Monday: Chanel Nuit Magique Collection

A new workweek calls for a new nail color. Today I’m all about Chanel. For their latest set of polishes, the French label has taken to the skies! Naturally, blue comes into play, but this is no boring sky blue. Magic is modeled after the deep color of daybreak, and while it’s a great hue for winter, the jet black Cosmic is far more unique – and more far out for that matter…

Tom Ford Shameless Nail Lacquer

Some might say that if you spend $32 on nail polish you are, in fact, shameless, and ordinarily I’d agree – but not so with Tom Ford’s lacquer. It lasts forever!! He just launched Shameless, and I love a good, deep red so as soon as I got back from Thailand I painted my nails with it.

Why You Might Want To Consider Non-Toxic Polishes

Why You Might Want To Consider Non-Toxic Polishes

Ignore any marketing fluff around nail polish that says natural or any variant on that word. There is no such thing as natural or organic polish as they are all made from chemicals and various dyes.

Best Opalescent Nail Polishes

Best Opalescent Nail Polishes: Fall Frosting

When you think of frosted nail polishes, you probably think back to those scary ‘80s shades, yet thanks to new technology, you can get your shine with shimmer and depth. Trust me, I never thought I’d recommend frosty green polish, but there you have it – I’m sporting Chanel’s Alchimie (at Chanel for $27) as I type this.
