Review: OPI Nordic Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Review: OPI ‘Nordic’ Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Product Review

I can always count on OPI to bring a delicious assortment of rich and brilliant hued colors to help celebrate one of the most beautiful seasons. Last year we were taken on a cool trip to San Francisco but, this time around, the iconic nail polish brand wants you to 'set your sights on the Northern Lights' with the OPI Nordic Fall/Winter 2015 Collection. Inspired by the countries of Northern Europe, this 12 polish line features 2 shimmery shades, 9 cremes and 1 glittery stand-out. I really enjoyed playing with this collection because a lot of the colors were quite obviously suited for the autumnal months whereas a few of them were traditional summer favorites that were muted for a nice transition through seasons. Read on to find out my verdict on each one...
Get The Look: Kristen Stewart's Edgy 'Camp X-Ray' Screening Hair - The Cut & Style!

Get The Look: Kristen Stewart’s Edgy “Camp X-Ray” Screening Hair – The Cut & Style!

After chopping off her long locks earlier this summer, KRISTEN STEWART debuted an ultra edgy asymmetric crop when she attended the New York City screening of her latest film "Camp X-Ray". Celebrity Hairstylist GIANNANDREA, who has worked with the star many times in the past, wanted to give Kristen a 'chic and effortlessly stylish new cut, something to perfectly reflect her personality,' he explained. "The proportions are extremely important with a short haircut. I wanted to preserve the femininity while still bringing an edge to the look, and using a combination of thinning shears and a razor allowed me to achieve this balance. And of course, we wanted to have fun with it!" Not only did Giannandrea give Kristen a fabulous new 'do, but he also took the time to share a breakdown with how he achieved the look.

Review: Essie 'Dress To Kilt' Collection

Review: Essie ‘Dress To Kilt’ Fall 2014 Collection

Product Review

Autumn is my favorite time of year; for the slight chill in the air, for the food, for Pumpkin Spice lattes, for fashion, and--of course, for nail polish. Not only do I love the colors and the spirit of the season, but I always feel like polish looks the best on my nails during this time of year, but maybe that's due to the lack of a tan changing my natural tone or skin bitten from the harsh winter weather. This year Essie has increased my eagerness for fall with their ultra-chic new "Dress To Kilt" Collection. This gorgeous line includes 6 lush cremes in vibrant shades of seasonal favorites, includes a soft taupe, two leafy greens, a sophisticated royal cobalt, a yummy chocolate, and a siren red that's honored with the namesake of the collection. I was totally psyched when the cool team over at Essie sent me these six beauties to try out so that I could share my thoughts with all of you. I hope you take the time to enjoy my review before you rundontwalk to your nearest beauty supply store to stock up on a few bottles for yourself!

China Glaze teamed up with "The Giver" to celebrate the summer release of the social science fiction film, based off the early 1990s novel by Lois Lowry. Set in the year 2048, the dystopian story focuses on a community stripped of their memories. To keep in theme with the story and colors of the film, the polish collection features 10 cremes and 2 glitters that balance each other out with cool and warm tones. Ranging from pale mint green and ballet pink to vibrant brick red and purple, the line is reawakened with a shimmering bronze that actually looks like glittering gravel on your nails. I was attracted to the line at first glance, so I was thrilled to received the collection from China Glaze to share my review with all of you. Read on to find out, what I think, are the most stand-out colors.
Get The Look: Kristen Stewart - Chanel AW14 Couture Show at Paris Fashion Week

Get The Look: Kristen Stewart – Chanel Couture Show at Paris Fashion Week: Fall 2014

Kristen Stewart surprised on-lookers with her brand new cropped hairstyle at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. The 24-year-old debuted her fiery layered shag at the Chanel fashion show to celebrate Karl Lagerfeld's Fall/Winter 2014 couture collection...and get this--it was only 2 hours old! That's right, Kristen's hairstylist Ken O'Rourke had the honor of giving her the brand new look and they cut it in her hotel bathroom right before Kristen got ready for the event. Ken shared that he didn't use any product and no hairdryer--he simply let it air-dry. Yup, that's right. Kristen's hair just naturally looks that good. #HairEnvy? Most definitely. He took it a step further by letting us know that it will most likely look even better the next day after she's slept on it. Of course, because no one rocks bed-head better than K-Stew! Not only couldn't we take our eyes off her fresh new 'do, but Kristen was also sporting some gorgeous shimmering rose eyeshadow that was instantly a summer must-have! Emma Kotch, who has worked with Kristen many times in the past during European press events, helped the start get ready using mostly products from the CHANEL beauty line.

Review: OPI 'Neon' Summer 2014 Collection

Review: OPI ‘Neon’ Summer 2014 Collection

Product Review

I love brightening up my manicure after saying "see ya" to snow-packed days, and this year OPI is giving me a juicy dose of brightly hued perfection with their brand new Summer 2014 NEON Collection! For the first time, the iconic nail polish brand is releasing their beloved neon beauties in full sized bottles and, to add to that excitement, they're also being added as permanent fixtures to their line of polishes. For this year's line, OPI has treated us to 6 punchy shades of purple, green, yellow, orange, pink and coral---along with a white to wear beneath each color to enhance the hue while also protecting the nail. For my review I used two sets of three colors for displaying purposes but, they ended up looking so funky together that it actually gave me some inspiration for summer nail art. While I start working on my next neon mani, read on to find out more about OPI's latest.
