Review: Essie ‘Flowerista’ Spring 2015 Collection

Review: Essie 'Flowerista' Spring 2015 Collection
The winter blues have kept me down for too long so I’m eager for spring to hop into full swing! Some gals like to celebrate a new season with their hair color or their lipstick–I get ready for the transition with my nail polish, which is why I was pretty excited to see some of the polishes from the new Essie Spring 2015 “Flowerista” Collection while I was out running errands recently.

One of the coolest things about the “Flowerista” collection is that it marks the first line that Essie collaborated on with fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff, the first Global Color Designer for the iconic nail polish brand. Known for her eclectic aesthetic, I’m not shocked that I instantly fell for the fun variety of colors; whether your style is classic or grunge, avant-garde or super girly, there’s definitely a color I think you will dig. Check out the feedback I had to share on the colors I scooped up! | continue reading..

Review: Morgan Taylor 'Cinderella' Spring 2015 Collection

Bring the magic of Disney’s live-action feature film “Cinderella” to your fingertips this spring with the help of Morgan Taylor. The professional nail lacquer teamed up with the ‘house of mouse’ to create a gorgeous collection of both classic and gel polish to celebrate the fairytale—including an array of lush cremes and magical shimmers.

Being a total fanatic of all things Disney and a lover of Morgan Taylor polishes, I was beyond thrilled to test out this collection and share it with all of you. “Cinderella” hits theaters next month, so there’s plenty of time to get your hands on the line and choose a color to wear to the theater as you watch the magic unfold on the big screen on March 13th. | continue reading..

2015 OSCARS – WISH LIST | Part 1

2015 OSCARS - WISH LISTAs a major movie buff and fashion aficionado, the Academy Awards are easily one of my favorite nights in fashion. There’s a huge list of stars expected to be there so, needless to say, I had to limit my list to under 30 people…and that was hard because I have a lot of red carpet wishes. From presenters like Lupita Nyong’o to performers (cough::Lady Gaga::cough) and nominated actresses–such as: Keira Knightley, Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore and Emma Stone, you have a lot to browse.

I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse of what I hope to see on Oscar night!

Review: OPI ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Collection

Product Review

Review: OPI 'Fifty Shades of Grey' CollectionOPI has released a brand new collection to celebrate the highly-anticipated theatrical release of “Fifty Shades of Grey” (starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson), based on the racy best-selling novel by E.L. James. When I first heard about the release, I expected every single polish to be a shade of gray because of obvious reasons, however, the OPI team made sure to include nice pop of color in there to honor the third star of the film — The Red Room.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” hit the silver screen this Valentine’s Day weekend so–after you check out my review of OPI’s latest and pick up a bottle (or six) for yourself, make sure you stop by your nearest theater to take in Mr. Grey in all his suited glory. | continue reading..

2015 Golden Globes - WISH LISTPhoto: NBC
It’s that time of year again where it feels like there’s an award show every other day (well…there kind of is) but, among them all, one of my all-time favorites is the Golden Globe Awards. As one of the most glamorous celebrations of the year it’s filled with stars from both your favorite television shows and your most recent beloved films — including 2014’s stand-outs: Reese Witherspoon, Viola Davis, Julianne Moore, Felicity Jones, and Ruth Wilson. I’m excited to see what everyone will wear — especially Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who take on hosting duties again, and in celebration of that, here’s my annual wish list!

I know some of these are ‘far out’ there — what’s a wish list without dreaming big?

Review: Deborah Lippmann ‘Fantastical’ Holiday 2014 Collection

Product Review

Review: Deborah Lippmann 'Fantastical' Collection

When you think of a holiday nail lacquer collection you probably visualize red, green, silver, gold and white, and all the ways you can turn that into glitter, metallics, and shimmers. Now, I’m the first gal to get excited over that color palette but Deborah Lippmann has, as they say, ‘been there, done that’ …and that’s why I’m super excited that she let her imagination run wild with her not-so-traditionally-festive new Holiday/Winter 2014 Fantastical Collection.

The exotic line features a whimsical array of colors in vibrant lime green, shimmering burnt orange, electric pink, celestial blue, a moon-changing teal, and a sparkling black to take you on a magical ride. I was practically vibrating with excitement when I saw a preview of these colors so, needless to say, I was thrilled to be able to test run a few shades that I’m about to share with you.

So…. let’s get to it! | continue reading..
