Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


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. I CONTINUE READING

80s Ladies Week: Laura Mercier 24 Karat Nail Lacquer is a Scene Stealer!

Posted on by daneen in 80s Ladies Week, Nail Polish, Nails | 2 Comments

justthetenofus0 80s Ladies Week: Laura Mercier 24 Karat Nail Lacquer is a Scene Stealer!
If you’re a child of the 80s, you probably remember a delightful gem of a spinoff called Just The Ten Of Us. Coach Graham Lubbock, introduced on Growing Pains, moves his super-sized family to California and takes a job at St Augustine’s Academy. The sitcomy twist? It’s an all-boys school, and he has five daughters to enroll.

justthetenofus1 80s Ladies Week: Laura Mercier 24 Karat Nail Lacquer is a Scene Stealer!Why can’t the daughters attend a nearby coed or all-girls school? Shhhhh…don’t ask questions.

Anway, most of the laughs come courtesy of the eldest girls: nun-wannabe Marie, sweet but slow Cindy, Wendy the blond flirt, and snarky intellectual Connie (my fave). Despite their diverse personalities, I think they would have all loved Laura Mercier’s new Nail Lacquer in 24 Karat.

24+karat+005 80s Ladies Week: Laura Mercier 24 Karat Nail Lacquer is a Scene Stealer!
This long-lasting, quick-dry, formaldehyde-free formula looks amazing…not just on the ten of your fingers – but also on toes! And as you can see, it’s the perfect color to set off your summer sun- (or spray-) tan.

Picture it…it’s Friday night and Cindy and Wendy don’t have much time to get ready for their respective dates. They wrestle and pillow fight over who gets to wear 24 Karat, while Connie jealously schemes to pilfer the polish for herself. All the while, Marie’s praying for her sinful sisters’ salvation. Hilarity ensues.

[Insert laugh track here.]

End scene.

MAC Metalist and Neon 8 Nail Lacquer

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

mac+nail+polish+018 MAC Metalist and Neon 8 Nail Lacquer
Hello, my pretties. Meet Metalist and Neon 8, two pretty polishes from MAC’s Neo Sci-Fi collection. The former is described as a “neutral coppertone with white pearl,” the latter as “bright orange with matching pearl.”

I’m partial to Metalist – it’s the perfect compliment to my summer tan. Neon 8 is good, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it great. It just didn’t do it for me. But don’t take my word for it…the shade is sold out online, so someone is feeling it.

The formula is long-lasting, and is enriched with conditioners and UV protection.

I’ve been walking around for nearly two weeks with mismatched nails (a running joke at work). What kind of self-respting beauty blogger does that? Anyway, I’ve gotta go…I’m overdue for a date with the polish remover.

Toodeloo!

Dont+Socra tease+Me Nailing It: OPI Dont Socra tease Me!My friend Angela just got her nails did again. Last time, she rocked OPI’s Pompeii Purple. This time around, she went with Don’t Socra-tease Me, a spicy orange. As you can see, it’s hot like fiya!

Orange makeup is in full effect this summer, and painting some on your nails is an easy way to try the trend. Angela wears it well – don’t you think?

Sephora Finally Nails It: Beauty Behemoth Makes Nice With OPI

sephora Sephora Finally Nails It: Beauty Behemoth Makes Nice With OPI
I adore Sephora as much as your average makeup addict. For skincare, hair products, and color cosmetics, Sephora and I are BFF. But when it comes to nail polish, we’re more like frienemies.

For what seems like forever, they’ve been coming up seriously short in that department. I mean, the beauty emporium isn’t completely bereft of nail lacquer…but you don’t have much to choose from in terms of brands or shades.

When Sephora unveiled NARS Orgasm nail polish a few months ago, I thought it might be enough to mend this rift in our relationship. But I wasn’t particularly impressed by the orange creamsicle-like color on my tips. Nice try, Sephora…but no dice.

 Sephora Finally Nails It: Beauty Behemoth Makes Nice With OPI
Now, I hear that OPI has teamed up with Sephora to create Sephora By OPI, a collection of 54 stylish shades – each with a price tag of $9. I think this is another of Sephora’s thinly-veiled attempts to woo me and get back in my good graces. And by the sound of this line, it’ll likely work.

 Sephora Finally Nails It: Beauty Behemoth Makes Nice With OPISephora By OPI will include a base coat, top coat, nail color drying drops, remover, and on-trend colors. The long-lasting, chip-resistant polishes are free of DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde. Sephora by OPI Nail Polish will be available at Sephora stores in early August, and on Sephora.com in late July.

I haven’t gotten my hands on this collection yet, but with names like Don’t Go There, I’m With Brad, Never Enough Shoes and Metro Chic, how could it be bad?

For a sneak peek at the polishes, pop on over to Beauty And The Blog.

My friend, Angela, has the most fabulous nails.

pompeii+purple Nailing It: OPI Pompeii PurpleEvery two weeks, she visits her local nail salon and emerges with the most marvelous manicure. And Angela doesn’t play coy when it comes to color. With nail polish, she goes for the gusto. Right now, Ange is rocking OPI’s Pompeii Purple – a shimmery magenta. Oooh…pretty!

Since I’m lazy when it comes to doing my own nails, I will be featuring Angela’s on a regular basis. Check back in early July for the next edition of Nailing It. I can’t wait to see what shade she chooses next!

essie neon collection Trend Alert: Fluorescent Fingernails
Fancy yourself a nail trendsetter like Rihanna? Then the next addition to your beauty arsenal must be Essie’s Neon Collection.

Even if you’re a bit color-shy, your little piggies will love these polishes. In fact, these eye-popping shades are so sublime, your fingers will be jealous that your toes are having all the fun!

essie+neons+008 Trend Alert: Fluorescent Fingernails
The Neon Collection consists of four va-va-voom varnishes:

Short Shorts: shockingly flamingo pink (see above)
Mini Shorts: vibrant orange pop
Shorty Pants: light up the night electric yellow
Bermuda Shorts: high-voltage violet

Each color is such a superstar, it’s hard to play favorites. I can tell you my mom’s fave, though…she pleaded and pestered me until I surrendered Bermuda Shorts.

Essie’s Neon Collection is limited-edition, so get ‘em while they’re hot. And they’re hot, trust me.

Kristina asks:
Hey Kim…love you and your sisters…LOVE the show! Quick question: In the season premiere of Season 2 Khloe was wearing an awesome shade of pink nail polish when she “cornered Scott.” Can you tell me the shade or at least the brand by chance? Thanks.

Kim answers:
It’s by the company Essie and shade is called Limo-Scene.

Lily asks:
Hi Kim! I love you. As J.Lo is your inspiration, you are mine! I really would like to know what is the perfume you like the most! And for night too!

Kim answers:
I usually stick to the same scent — my all time every day scent is Michael by Michael Kors.

Yiana asks:
Kim, I am your biggest fan. What is your diet/workout regime and what kind of products do you use for your hair?

Kim answers:
I try to eat as healthy as possible, but make sure I work out all the time. I have a trainer Kathy Kaehler who I work out with all the time. We actually just made a work out video which is simple and easy to follow along with — especially if you are busy and don’t have any exercise equipment. As for my hair, I like to switch up products all the time to keep it fresh and vibrant. I use anything from Herbal Essences to Finesse to salon products.
