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 […]

Sephora + Pantone Universe

According to Pantone the color of the year is emerald so, for the second year now, Sephora has partnered with them to build a makeup collection around the color (last year it was tangerine tango). I went to a launch event for it a few weeks ago and – I’m sad to report…there’s no green […]

BlissLabs Hair + Nail Boosting Bites: Chew the Right Thing

We don’t often associate things that taste good with things that do good, but these pomegranate-blueberry flavored chews from Bliss are delicious exceptions. Part of the brand new line of “nutricosmetics” that have come out of BlissLabs in the past month, the supplements work to strengthen nails and hair. Of course, you can keep these […]

Julep Reveal Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum: Long and Strong

I have the world’s strongest nails. I’ve even used them as a screwdriver to open battery compartments on my son’s toys. It’s a blessing and a curse, though. They grow faster than weeds. I know I shouldn’t complain, but if I don’t get manicures every week and half, they grow so much that you see […]

Ciaté Velvet Manicure: Nailed It

British nail brand Ciaté has released a nail art kit for the newest trend in the making – the velvet manicure. This limited edition beauty buy leaves your nails feeling a little fuzzy, which is extremely cool but takes some getting used to (I can’t stop touching my nails!). And fortunately, the process requires only […]
