Can’t go on television with busted looking nails, so I sharpened my self-manicure skillz using Zoya nail polish in Ki. This best-selling shade (can’t you see why?) is a super unique, duochrome plum with blue and green metallic hightlights.
I love that Ki has split personalities. In the light, it’s the irridescent purple described above. Otherwise, it’s this plummy gray that demands a second glance. Ki has taken its place among my polish faves.
My nails usually take a fortnight to dry, so I sped up the process with Qtica Half Time Polish Drying Accelorator. This product is a godsend! For some reason, I always wait ’til 11pm to paint my nails…and usually end up having to fall asleep on my back, with my hands carefully perched on my chest. Thanks to Qtica, my polish was dry and smudge-proof way before lights out.
On Friday night, I was among the 8.2 million people who watched Rihanna’s 20/20 interview. But afterwards, while most people were thinking, “Wow…that Rihanna is so brave to publicly discuss such a horrifying personal tragedy” or “That jackass, Chris Brown, deserves whatever is coming to him” – I was thinking, “What products can I use to copy Rihanna’s icy nude lip look?”
So I did what any self-respecting beauty junkie would do. I broke out my lip gloss/lipstick stash and played makeup mad scientist/mixologist. I found that creating Rihanna’s 20/20 look is quite easy to do. All you need is a nude lipstick that is lighter than your complexion, and a silver gloss. Be sure to apply foundation to lips before trying this look, as the foundation will help cancel out any pink in your lips and let the lip color stand alone.
Here are some combos that I think would pass RiRi scrutiny:
