Review: OPI 'Muppets Most Wanted' Collection

Review: OPI ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Collection

Product Review

I'm excited to share the latest Limited Edition polishes from OPI with you, which are inspired by Disney's Muppets Most Wanted! I guess you could say I'm a bit of a aficionado when it comes to The Muppets; I grew up on the movies, the cartoons, the toys, and I may have even idolized Miss Piggy a little bit at one point or another :cough:istilldo:cough:. What can I say? She's the most fabulous. I made it my mission to stock up on the entire Muppet holiday collection that OPI first did back in 2011, so it should go without saying that I'm thrilled they teamed back up to celebrate the latest Disney film starring Kemit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Animal, Fozzie Bear, and the rest of the fuzzy gang. The collection is mostly focused on pink and nude tones--but there is a gorgeous deep purple, a fun duochrome, and a couple of pretty glitters in the mix. I'll stop babbling so you can check them out. Enjoy!
Review: China Glaze Sea Goddess Spring 2014 Collection

Review: China Glaze ‘Sea Goddess’ Spring 2014 Collection

Product Review

The first day of spring is literally a week away, so I'm quite excited that I was able to check out three polishes from the China Glaze Spring 2014 "Sea Goddess" Collection. They were kind enough to share them with me so that I can share with all of you today! I'll be honest, while the rich pastel hued colors originally grabbed my attention, the fact that they were textured polishes made me a bit apprehensive as it's been a definite 'hit' or 'miss' with other China Glaze textured polishes. However, these were much finer--kind of a mix between Zoya's Pixie Dust and OPI Liquid Sand polishes, if you're familiar with those. All three of them were very easy to apply and I pretty much got full coverage in just two coats.
Review: Beautifully Disney Fantasy In Flight Collection

Review: Beautifully Disney Fantasy In Flight Collection

Product Review

In my opinion, you're never too old to be a Disney fan--and that's why it's still at the top of the list of things I love the most. In fact, my entire family could definitely be labeled "Disney Fanatics"! I was thrilled when Disney collaborated for the second time with OPI last spring for their Couture de Minnie Collection, but my excitement definitely flew off the richter when the House of Mouse launched their very own Beautifully Disney beauty line shortly after with a focus on the 'wicked' fairytale villains. For their second installment of the cosmetic line, Disney introduces "Fantasy in Flight"--which is centered around Peter Pan's famous side kick Tinker Bell and the Blue Fairy from "Pinocchio". In the collection you'll find a 6 shade eyeshadow palette, a set of four mini nail polishes, two lip glosses, and a brush set. It should go without saying that I bounced around like Tigger when I got a special delivery of the collection to review for all of you, along with some signature pieces from the Beautifully Disney line (mascara and two blushes).
Review: OPI - Gwen Stefani Collection

Review: OPI x Gwen Stefani Collection

Product Review

Before I kick off my latest swatch review, I have to say that out of all of the new OPI collections recently released, the collaboration with Gwen Stefani is probably the one I've been looking forward to the most. I was big fan of No Doubt growing up, and have always had a love and appreciation for Gwen's music and eclectic style. She's just... so cool. The mission of this particular collab was to "create a collection as dramatic, diverse and glamorous as its namesake," according to Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder and Executive Vice President. "With crème and glitter hues, new satin matte texture, a mirrored chrome and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, Gwen Stefani by OPI presents the latest in pigments and finishes, while combining elements of haute couture and street fashion." OPI was kind enough to send the collection my way to share a look with all of you, and I couldn't be more excited to do so!
Review: ZOYA Zenith Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection

Review: ZOYA ‘Zenith’ Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection

Product Review

We're quickly approaching Christmas, which means the holiday season is nearing a close and the winter blues will soon be upon us as the days are filled with bitter weather, and the holiday decorations quickly come down. I tend to try to find things to perk me up to beat the 'woe is me' vibe that hits that first day back to work after ringing in the New Year, and I think ZOYA will be a positive contributor this year. The cool team over at Zoya recently sent their "ZENITH" Holiday-Winter 2013 collection my way, and now I can officially show you how a bit of shimmer and vivid sparkle is a key to blasting those winter blues. Be prepared to fall in love with the lively shades below!

Review: OPI x Mariah Carey Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection – Part III (Liquid Sand)

Product Review

For the final installment of my review of the OPI x Mariah Carey Holiday-Winter 2013 Collection, I give you the ultra-gorgeous group of liquid sands. These textured glittering polishes are definitely on-trend with the latest nail craze, and it's just an extra perk that they're so pretty. I've said it before, but OPI's Liquid Sands are some of the better textured polishes that have come out this year. I love the formula, they dry great and looks just as beautiful with a top coat. Make sure you also check out my thoughts on the CREMES & SHIMMERS (Part I) and the GLITTERS (Part II)! FYI: For the swatches below I used two coats for each and without a basecoat.

Review: OPI x Mariah Carey Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection – Part I (Cremes & Shimmers)

Product Review

My favorite time of year is here, and 'tis the season to be jolly---and load up on festive nail polish! Why should the decorations get all the shimmer and glitter when you have a set of nails that need some holiday cheer? Mariah Carey, who knows a thing or two about celebrating Christmas, teamed back up with OPI to create a beautiful Holiday/Winter 2013 line filled with shades and gleaming textures to make sure you take a bit of the holidays everywhere you go. The OPI crew sent me the collection to review, and after I did an elf-tastic happy dance, I got to work on swatching it--while jamming to Mariah's Christmas albums, mind you. This collection has 18 polishes (Note: Not including the Pure 18K Gold & Silver Top Coat - $30, Ulta), which proved to be too hefty to fit in one post without overwhelming you all, so I broke it into three. First up: the CREMES & SHIMMER formulas, but make sure you check out the GLITTERS and LIQUID SANDS!
Review: China Glaze Monsters Ball Halloween 2013 Collection

Review: China Glaze ‘Monsters Ball’ Halloween 2013 Collection

Product Review

I'm a holiday nut to the core---ask anyone who knows me. I pretty much count down until September 1st so that I can celebrate my four favorite months that involve Fashion Week (okay, so that's not an official holiday), Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. One of my favorite ways to celebrate the season is by playing around with nail art, so needless to say, I look forward to all the themed collections from some of my favorite nail brands. CHINA GLAZE literally hits the nail on the head every year for Halloween with a boo-tastic collection of colors and glitters to create some of the prettiest--erm 'creepy' looks. The folks over at CG were kind enough to send their latest "Monsters Ball" Collection my way so that I could give you the scoop on what you'll need to be wearing on your nails on All Hallows' Eve! Let's boogie...

Product Review

We're almost done with summer!! I'm sure that will get the response of many groans, but if you're anything like me, then you're welcoming the crisp autumn season with open arms clad in a cozy cable knit sweater, of course, because--yessss fall fashion! I'm a huge fan of the "Ber" months, as I refer to September-December. I love the holidays, the clothes, and most of all--the colors! Needless to say, I was super excited about the launch of 15-polish OPI San Francisco collection for Fall/Winter 2013 and the fact that they were kind enough to send the line my way so that I could tell you all about it. Check out the colorful swatches below and be prepared to find it difficult to select a favorite.
Get The Look: Lucy Hale - 2013 Teen Choice Awards

City of Bronze: Lily Collins’ Sparkling Premiere Nails!

For the star-studded Hollywood premiere of the "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones", LILY COLLINS opted for a white-hot knockout of a look that included a sultry cutout Cushnie et Ochs dress and matching Giuseppe Zanotti pumps---however, the cool monochrome ensemble wasn't without a warm pop of color. To coordinate with the deep hue of burgundy on Lily's lips, Celebrity "MAN-icurist" TOM BACHIK gave the star a dramatic manicure that included a shimmering touch of bronze.
