MAC Earthly Harmony Nail Lacquer

Two weekends ago, Mr. Spoiled Pretty sweetly offered to watch Westley for the day so that I could rejoin the living and get my shop on. So I drove to the King of Prussia Mall and proceeded to give my Visa a workout.

While perusing the MAC counter at Nordstrom, a new nail polish caught my eye. Earthly Harmony, one of six new shades created by renowned nail guru Jin Soon, immediately reminded me of OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques (one of my all time favorites) – a slightly lighter version with frosty sparkle, anyway. It took me about three seconds to decide I couldn’t leave without a bottle on my person. Sadly, it was not meant to be. The saleswoman apologetically explained that they had sold out of the shade and wasn’t sure that they’d get any more in stock.

While forced to leave the store empty handed, I decided that I wouldn’t leave with nekkid nails. So I brazenly took the tester bottle and gave myself a quick mani right there at the counter. How tacky is that? I know, I know…I’m a mess. Ain’t no shame in my game.

Undeterred, I left Nordstrom and headed to MAC’s freestanding store in another section of the mall. Once again, in the words of Cher Horowitz, I was brutally rebuffed. Another MAC artist informed me of the shade’s popularity and explained that it had sold out almost immediately. So when I returned home, I juiced up my laptop and ordered myself a bottle online. Thank God for e-commerce.

Earthly Harmony and the rest of the MAC Nail Trend F/W ’10 collection is available, for a limited time, at maccosmetics.com and nordstrom.com. Heed my advice and nail this shade down before it’s going, going, gone.

Les Khakis De Chanel Nail Polish

This summer, I was a little late jumping on the Chanel Nouvelle Vague nail polish bandwagon. By the time I discovered the rockin’ robin’s egg blue lacquer at a local salon, I could only get a manicure. Buying a bottle there – or anywhere else – was out of the question, as the shade was sold out everywhere. Well, except for eBay, where a single bottle had a price tag of $75.

After missing out on Nouvelle Vague, I swore I would never again be tardy to a Chanel LE VERNIS party. And I don’t want you to be singing the shoulda woulda coulda’s either. Which is why I beseech you to buy Les Khakis De Chanel, a collection of three nail polishes developed in celebration of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out.

Three limited-editions hues (Khaki Rose, a dusky pink-beige; Khaki Vert, a mossy foam green; and Khaki Brun, a pale stony taupe) are must-haves for any beauty lover’s polish collection…especially if you’re like me and appreciate an edgy, neutral nail. The shades can be worn alone, but I’ve been told they can be particularly edgy when all three are painted in an alternating, camouflage-y pattern.

Considering I’ve got my hands full with a 3 week old baby, I’m gonna stick to a minimal mani and leave the artistry to you nail philes out there.

Les Khakis De Chanel are now available at Chanel boutiques, Chanel.com and select department stores.

Lindsay Lohan’s Profane Nail Polish Shows Contempt for Court

A judge may have sentenced Lindsay Lohan to 90 days in jail followed by a 90 day stint in rehab, but it was the wild child – or rather her manicure – that had the last word(s).

What do you think of LiLo giving the judge the middle finger, on the down low? Should the court hold Lindsay, and her profane polish, in contempt? Or should they just be thankful her crazy ass actually showed up this time?
