OPI I Have a Herring Problem

Posted on by daneen in Featured, Holy Grail, Nail Polish, Nails | Leave a comment

OPI I Have a Herring Problem2 OPI I Have a Herring ProblemAfter my gorgeous Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI? manicure started looking a little jacked (after weeks of abuse), I decided to follow it up with another polish from OPI’s Holland Collection. It was a difficult choice, as OPI sent me the entire set for review AND every bottle is a beauty. I considered painting every piggy in a different polish, but decided that would look a lil’ cray cray. So after much deliberation, the finalists were I Don’t Give a Rotterdam! and I Have a Herring Problem – two shimmer-laced blues. I decided on the latter because it’s darker and reads a little more gray (gray nails are my everything!) against my skin tone.

Over the years, I’ve amassed quite a collection of nail polishes (I probably own 200+ shades) and I don’t have anything quite like I Have a Herring Problem. In the bottle, it’s kind of a green blue. But worn, it’s looks more gray. And depending on the light, it either reads more blue or more gray. And the subtle, silver micro-shimmer makes it special without venturing into disco ball territory.

Get Red-y

mac russian red lipstick Get Red yRed lipstick used to really intimidate me. It was something I saw on the runways of New York City, Milan, and Paris; the red carpet; or on Dita Von Teese. I rarely saw anyone attempt this look in real life, which did not help my anxiety!

A few months ago, I instituted a personal beauty rule, to help overcome my fear. This rule is: on Wednesdays, we wear red lipstick. Yes, I was directly inspired by the movie Mean Girls, and their “On Wednesdays we wear pink” rule, and yes, I am totally okay with admitting that. CONTINUE READING

OPI Holland Collection: Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI?

Posted on by daneen in Featured, Holy Grail, Nail Polish, Nails | Leave a comment

opi holland collection nail polish OPI Holland Collection: Dutch Ya Just Love OPI?One of my New Years resolutions is to step up my manicure game. Last year, taking care of nails took a back seat to taking care of Westley. But now that my son is 18 months old and a little more equipped at occupying himself with the tons of toys I lavish upon him (he is truly a spoiled pretty baby), I have more opportunities to stick to the game plan.

Last month, OPI was nice enough to feed my polish addiction by sending me all twelve shades from their new Holland Collection. I was excited by the press release and images OPI sent me in advance of the actual samples, but seeing the colors in person gave me a newfound respect for the genius of Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. If ever there was a polish collection to purchase in its entirety, it’s this one. STUNNING – every single shade! CONTINUE READING

I have a confession to make. I have been using the same brand of hair products since I was in the 6th grade and (name of then-cute boy redacted) told me that my hair smelled nice. Herbal Essences was always readily available, affordable, good to my hair, and it does smell good!

Now 25, I figured that it was time to take a little better care of my hair. Enter the Organix line of products, which is available at drug stores. I picked up the shampoo, conditioner, and the light oil from the Moroccan Argan Oil collection. My hair is thick, coarse, and gets frizzy when not tamed properly – so I knew to stick to a moisturizing line of products. CONTINUE READING

“We will see a peak in fluid textures and warm tones that suggest effortless elegance and healthy, shiny hair that shows a lot of movement and bounce,” states Wella Professionals Color Ambassador Aura Friedman. “Expensive and Luxurious are words you could use to explain this look – maximize this effect by asking your colorist to use Wella Professionals Haircolor to give you a soft shade with warm undertones that will best complement your skin tone.”

makeup+big+nose Makeup Mondays With Mario: Making a Big Nose Look Smaller

Hey Mario,

I know you must get a lot of questions about how to make a big nose appear smaller using makeup. I am aware of highlighting the nose and shading the sides darker if you have a wide nose. But my nose isn’t wide – it’s just slightly bulbous and by shading and highlighting the bridge of the nose it only makes the end of my nose appear bigger.

I was wondering if you could help me by giving me a few pointers on how or where would be best to shade the end of the nose.

Thank you,
Jennan

Hi Jennan,

If your nose is already thin, you can skip highlighting the bridge as that will make your nose appear thinner and longer. Instead, apply the contour color to the bottom of the nose along the nostrils and blend a bit upward towards the tip. This should make the end of your nose appear shorter and thinner. The key really is to blend it well so there are no harsh lines.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,

Mario
