Solar Oil Skin & Nail Conditioner: Soft Cuticles, Strong Nails

My cuticles and I are locked in a vicious cycle of a battle – they dry out, I pick at them, they get worse, I pick more…I think you see where I’m going here. My weekly manicure is only a temporary reprieve. I’ve tried out a lot of nice cuticle oils, and I’ll tell you […]

essie 2013 Neon Collection

We can thank essie for neons being popular more or less steadily for the last four or five years. They were the first and they’re still the best when it comes to neons. However because their first neon collection included such true orange, yellow, pink and purple neons it has been hard to follow-up with […]

Trend Alert: Punk Nail Art

No one would accuse punk style of seeming very put-together, which makes the punk nail art inherently confusing. In the ‘80s, it was all about chipped, black nails. Of course no one dared try that at the MET Gala (she would have been the truest punk there). It was all about fancy gowns, big jewels, […]

Tom Ford Beauty Summer 2013 Collection: The Bronze Age

Tom Ford has obviously found and bathed in the fountain of youth, so he knows that looking bronzed should be a matter of makeup, not deadly rays. His Summer 2013 limited edition line is honestly the best bronzing collection I’ve ever tried, and as a former sun worshipper/tanning salon addicted LA girl, I know my […]

Reverse French Manicures: Snob or Slob?

The nail art trend presses on. Its latest victim? A twist on the French manicure. I’m not a fan of French manicures in the first place (although, I’ll admit to committing the crime in the late ‘90s). They look cheap and anything but French and just like fortune cookies, they were invented in America. Nevertheless, […]

Butter London Starkers Collection

I love Butter! Their polishes last forever, they always seem to be ahead of the curve with shades, and even their more daring colors tend to be wearable. Their latest limited edition collection is called the Starkers Collection and they’re being built as nudes, but I like to think of these as foundations shades that […]

Butter LONDON Exclusive Color Sets: Easter Comes Early

Butter LONDON launched four exclusive “Easter-inspired” sets on Good Morning America’s Deals & Steals segment, promising the collection would be 50% off+! Beauty products rarely go on sale, so this is a sign that it’s time do some spring cleaning in your makeup bag and to stock up on fresh products. The first one that […]

By Terry Spring Launches

By Terry launched three key products for Spring (see their makeup looks here). I’m a nail polish freak so I was most interested in those. They’ve launched what they’re calling a base coat serum – By Terry Regenerating Nail Base – that’s designed to stimulate nail growth by replenishing oxygen to nail keratin, while also […]

MAC Hayley Williams: Red-Orange Riot

Hayley Williams may be known as the lead singer of Paramore, but she’s also known for her unapologetically bright hair. The heady orange tint demands so much attention that MAC has been inspired to create a four-piece line in honor of Hayley’s signature hue – a pretty impressive feat for a 24-year old! Considering I’m […]
