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: 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

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.

Review: Deborah Lippmann ‘Fantastical’ Holiday 2014 Collection

Product Review

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!

Review: Deborah Lippmann 'New York Marquee' Collection

Review: Deborah Lippmann ‘New York Marquee’ Fall 2014 Collection

Product Review

Take an alternative approach to your autumn wardrobe by spicing up your manicure with jewel-tone chrome thanks to the brand new Deborah Lippmann New York Marquee Fall 2014 Collection. Deborah tips her hat to 'the city that never sleeps' this season with what she calls: an ode to Art Deco, from Bowery to Broadway. This exciting, opulent, and beautiful line--which offers complete coverage that's chip-free, is made up of 6 luxe chrome colors in pewter, gold, blush, magenta, indigo ink and a soft teal. Because I'm such a 'Broadway baby', I had a blast testing out each shade---and admiring my fingernails with zero shame each time. I've always been a fan of the easy application of Deborah's polishes, and it doesn't hurt that she never fails at creating a unique shade of colors that are almost always universally flattering. I'm sure after reading my review, you'll find yourself grabbing this collection to celebrate a few exciting NYC nights of your own this fall.

This time around I focused on the Rollin' In Cashmere trio pack, which includes a soft opulent gold, a fun iridescent hex glitter reminiscent of a snow globe, and a whimsical multi-glitter made up of darker tones. Rollin' In Cashmere is one of two trios features with the holiday collab.

Review: OPI x Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014 Collection - Cremes & Shimmers

Review: OPI x Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014 Collection – Cremes & Shimmers

Product Review

After completely falling in love with the collaboration between OPI and Gwen Stefani earlier this year, I was beyond excited to know that the team had a holiday collection in the works. It's no secret that anything Gwen touches turns to fabulous, so imagine the stylish possibilities when her touch is complete with an OPI lacquered manicure. "During the holiday season, women adopt a more glamorous beauty look," explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. With the launch of the bold and luxurious collection comes 18 limited edition nail lacquers inspired the edgy-yet-sophisticated style of the No Doubt singer/songwriter, L.A.M.B. designer and "The Voice" coach. Amongst the line you'll find a wide assortments of rich jewel-tone cremes and shimmers as well as glittery confections and chrome accents that were offered in cute holiday trio packs (which I separated into different posts highlight, check out the Unfrost My Heart Trio: Review and the Rollin' In Cashmere Trio: Review). At first glance, despite the hearts I had in my eyes, I didn't fail to notice that there was only one green in the collection and zero blue. I was a bit torn on how I felt about that, but it didn't diminish my excitement to test out of the collection, which I was able to do when OPI sent the shades my way. I hope you enjoy my review.

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...

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!
