FALL. IS. HERE. My favorite season has arrived, and I couldn't be happier. I'm ready for boots, sweater weather, and this brand new nail polish from Essie's Fall 2016 "Kimono-Over" Collection!

Review: OPI 'Washington D.C.' Fall/Winter 2016 Collection

Review: OPI ‘Washington D.C.’ Fall/Winter 2016 Collection

Product Review

Typically one of the most anticipated things of autumn each year is the new season of "Scandal", but the political hit ABC drama starring Kerry Washington doesn't return to TV until January, so that leaves something else to countdown to -- the Presidential election this November. OPI capitalized off of both (heh, get it?) by creating an unbelievable fall nail lacquer collection celebrating both with the OPI Washington, D.C. Fall/Winter 2016 Collection. This 15-shade line (which includes 3 Limited Edition colors) is inspired by "Scandal" while also being right on time for Americans to swipe their nails in one of the shades as they cast their vote for the next President of the United States this November. OPI thought of everything -- I guess they were channeling their inner Olivia Pope. I got my hands on the line to give you a peak of all of the new colors, and I think you're going to love them as much as I do. The only problem I see is that there just aren't enough days in the season to rock them all. But, hey, that's where nail art comes in.
Review: OPI 'Venice' Fall/Winter 2015 Collection

Review: OPI ‘Venice’ Fall/Winter 2015 Collection

Product Review

It's been a few weeks since the weather cooled off from the blistering summer days, and in just a few more we'll be expecting the bitterness of winter but, in the meantime, I'm basking in all things fall; from my wardrobe, to my daily pumpkin spice latte, right down to my nail polish. Thanks to OPI's latest autumnal collection, I'll be stylin' right through the season. OPI's Venice Fall/Winter 2015 Collection features 15 polishes inspired by the Baroque period decadence with a gorgeous variety of vampy deep shades to pearlescent hues and soft tones. I'm usually the type to stick to my dark colors throughout the season, but sometimes it's nice to add a soft palette to my look here and there during the "'ber months" (as we call them in my house). Check out all of the colors below, and find out how they stack up against each other.
Review: OPI Infinte Shine 'Soft Shades' 2015 Collection

Review: OPI Infinte Shine ‘Soft Shades’ 2015 Collection

Product Review

OPI is unleashed a major gel 12 polish collection called Infinite Shine over the summer, but before the release, they had given a little sneak peak with the OPI Infinite Shine Soft Shades collection; the 6 pastel shades include a pair of crisp whites, a peachy beige, a pale pinks, a subtle blue, and a shimmery pale grey. You may have seen the polish around in stores (they came out in May 2015), but I didn't get my hands onto them until recently. I was very grateful to receive the collection to review, but, unfortunately, I didn't get the setting gel so I avoided putting them on my nails to test them out. I'll pick one up at a later date but, in the meantime, I wanted to show you all the pretty colors in the collection -- it's a good thing I had my trusty nail polish tester wheel to display them. Check out all of the colors below!
Review: Deborah Lippmann 'Roar' Fall 2015 Collection

Review: Deborah Lippmann ‘Roar’ Fall 2015 Collection

Product Review

I always get super pumped for fall collections; give them all to me -- shoes, clothes, makeup, decorations, my drink at Starbucks...and most of all? The nail polish. What makes me even happier is when brands play with traditional deep crisp tones of the season instead of trying to give us bright colors of summer while telling us they're 'alternative fall colors'. No, that's not going to work for me and I'm pretty sure it doesn't work for other autumn color lovers. But, you know what? Deborah Lippmann gets that, and that's why she's developed a supreme palette of stunning fall tones wrapped up in a fierce collection - the Fall 2015 ROAR Collection, to be exact.

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!
Review: Morgan Taylor 'Cinderella' Spring 2015 Collection

Review: Morgan Taylor ‘Cinderella’ Spring 2015 Collection

Product Review

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.
Review: OPI 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Collection

Review: OPI ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Collection

Product Review

OPI 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.

RILEY KEOUGH rocked the black carpet at the special opening of the Louis Vuitton: "Series 2" Exhibition in Hollywood wearing a colorful flower printed dress and baby blue boots. The 25-year-old "Mad Max: Fury Road" star may have let the dress do most of the talking, but her relaxed loose waves and soft shimmery makeup spoke volumes. Celebrity Makeup Artist BEAU NELSON, who helped Riley get ready for her night out using an array of gorgeous natural-looking hues and just a touch of shimmer, shared his tips on how he achieved the look. Get the scoop below! THE SKIN & CHEEKS: "To create perfect skin, I used Laura Mercier Smooth Flawless Fluide and Cinema Secrets Concealer.
