Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Nailing It: OPI Parlez-Vous OPI?

Posted on by daneen in Nail Polish | 2 Comments

opi+001 Nailing It: OPI Parlez Vous OPI?
It’s been a while since my last installment of Nailing It, hasn’t it? My bad. I don’t know why I thought my scatterbrained self could handle a regular feature. Anyway, Angela is sporting a new shade, and I’m excited to share – because it’s one of my fall favorites.

If you pay attention to the trend reports, you know that purple reigns this season…and Parlez-Vous OPI is a prime example. This smoky violet had me at bonjour, and it seems that Angela is equally smitten.

La Collection De France from OPI incudes the aforementioned purty purple, along with eleven other stunning shades.

opi louvre me louvre me not Nailing It: OPI Parlez Vous OPI?I’m off to NYC today for Fashion Week – so, in preparation, I painted my piggies in Louvre Me Louvre Me Not (left), a rich royal purple.

C’est magnifique, n’est-ce pas?

Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: Sephora by OPI

Posted on by daneen in Fabuless Pick of the Week, Nail Polish, Nails | 2 Comments

sephora+by+opi Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: Sephora by OPIYesterday, I paid a visit to my friendly, neighborhood Sephora store to play around with Sephora by OPI, a collection of nail colors, hand treatments, and nail care products by OPI, available exclusively at Sephora stores.

The Sephora by OPI display, with testers of 54 fashion-forward shades, is a veritable polish playground. In the King of Prussia store, the display is situated right next to the registers…so I felt somewhat guilty for polluting the salespeople’s work area with nail polish fumes. But from the look of one cashier’s multi-colored manicure, I realized that not even the staff is immune to the temptation of the Sephora by OPI testers.

At $9 a bottle, these gorgeous polishes pack more of a financial punch than many other brands on the market – including the original OPI collection. But the green formulation (every shade is DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde-free) and saving a trip to another OPI retailer for your nail needs justifies the extra dollars and/or cents.

sephora+opi Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: Sephora by OPIAnd while I think that nail polishes should be judged on the merits of color, finish, ingredients and staying power, I have to give this collection bonus points for its cheeky monikers – such as Sample Sale, Skinny Jeans, Nonfat Soy Half Caff, It’s Somewhere in My Purse, Brunette on the Internet, Never Enough Shoes, and Beauty Junkie.

The Autumn & Eve Collection pays homage to the deeper, darker shades seen on fall 2008 runways.
