Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC.

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

OPI is partnering with Gwen Stefani on a new, seven-piece limited edition nail polish collection for 2014 – featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick, a new semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special base coat.

Gwen’s signature red OPI hue – Over & Over A-Gwen – will be available in a boxed set, which includes Swarovski black crystals and silver, gold and pewter studs in bar, square, diamond and circle shapes for creating unique nail designs, as well as nail glue for easy application.

Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and 4 in the Morning feature a new, semi-matte satin finish designed to be worn without top coat. Push and Shove, a bold chrome hue, is also worn without top coat but requires a special complimentary base coat – Lay Down that Base. One thin coat of Lay Down that Base topped with two thin coats of Push and Shove yields an intense, mirrored finish. The collection is rounded out with two glossy crème lacquers and one sparkly glitter shade: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color and In True Stefani Fashion.

This collection will be available beginning January 2014 at Professional Salons, including Dillard’s, JCPenney and ULTA, for $9.00 suggested retail for each nail lacquer. The boxed set including Over & Over A-Gwen and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS will retail for $14.95.

Lately, I’ve been enamored with Essie. Mr. Spoiled Pretty and Westley gave me a gift card to a local nail salon for Mother’s Day – and every time I get my nails did, I find myself gravitating to the Essie shades. Not only are the shades super gorge, but they apply like a dream and they look fresh to def for a good 10 days (and I’m super rough on my hands). On my toes, we’re talking a good month.

loreal new money crazy for chic Polished: LOreal Paris Watermelon Manicure

L’oreal Paris recently re-designed all of their packaging, and their Colour Riche nail polishes now come in sleek rectangular bottles.

I picked up two colors: New Money (a bright, light green) and Crazy for Chic (a clear, vibrant raspberry pink). I was eager to see how long these polishes would last, since they are advertised for 10-day wear.

watermelon nails Polished: LOreal Paris Watermelon Manicure

I applied two coats of each color, going for a summertime watermelon-inspired manicure. I proceeded to beat up my manicures as I always do: washing dishes, typing way too much, and cooking.

I am happy to report that my watermelon nails lasted for 8 days without chipping! These polishes have serious staying power, and they are a great choice for summertime manicures and pedicures with longevity.
