Coming Soon: Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens!

Sally+Hansen+Nail+Art+Pens Coming Soon: Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens!
They’re not yet on the brand website, but Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens have been popping up in random Walgreens stores and generating quite a buzz. Available in 8 colors (white, black, light pink, hot pink, blue, red, silver and gold), these markers are $7.99 each and make nail art a breeze, thanks to the water-based formula.

Embrace your inner polish Picasso and doodle all over your manicure. Mistakes can be easily corrected with a moist Q-tip and some patience. But because the formula is water-based, you must seal your manicure masterpiece with a top coat – or all of your hard work will have been for naught.

So keep your eyes peeled next time you’re at the drugstore or supermarket. And if you live/work near a Walgreens, by all means start your sleuthing there. I’m hoping to get my hands on these stylos, so expect a formal review soon!

Nail Polish You And Your Man Can Enjoy

 Nail Polish You And Your Man Can Enjoy
For years, I have been blaming Mr. Spoiled Pretty for my raggedy looking nails. I’m too scatterbrained and busy to schedule regular manicures. And whenever I pull out the polish stockpile, Graham makes this face that translates to, “If you care about my brain cells, you’ll put away the polish.”

Most times Graham makes this face, I begrudgingly return the polishes to their hideaway beneath the bathroom sink…not because I’m really concerned about his brain cells (he’s really smart, so he has some to spare). Really, it’s so that I don’t have to hear him yammer on about the caustic smell of the fumes – and how women do such ridiculous things in the name of beauty.

Well, I’m tickled (perfect) pink to report that Sula Beauty has answered my nail polish prayers.

Sula’s collection of non-toxic Nail Colours don’t smell like traditional polishes. In fact, they don’t really smell like anything at all – unless you place the bottle under your nose and take a whiff. And even then, the scent is barely noticeable. Another treat – the polishes are specially designed to be worn with whimsy. The water-based formula can be peeled off in one clean sweep – no harsh polish remover required; which means no funny faces or lip from Mr. Spoiled Pretty when it comes time to take it off. For longer wear, simply apply a protective clear top and base coat.

 Nail Polish You And Your Man Can EnjoySula Nail Colour is available in Perfect Pink, Crimson Red, Champagne Coral and Modern Mauve.

I’m crossing my manicured fingers that Sula adds more colors to the collection.

90210 No…OPI’s New Collection Is Inspired By The New Series?

90210+by+OPI 90210 No...OPIs New Collection Is Inspired By The New Series?

As I reported back in July, OPI debuted a limited-edition nail polish collection inspired by Beverly Hills spoiled brats…just not the ones I/we were expecting.

90210 by OPI is comprised of these three shades:

Queen of West Web-erly: purple shimmer

Sweet as Annie-thing! – orange red
Pretty & Privileged – ruby red

Um, OPI – where in the ham sandwich are my Brenda, Kelly and Donna-inspired colors? I realize that this is just a marketing vehicle for the new series, but how badass would it have been to see the above shades to go head-to-head with polishes inspired by the true queens of West Beverly High? How about an inky color to match Dylan’s Porsche 356 Speedster? And how simple would it have been to whip up a silvery shade inspired by David? Ugh…this collection had so much promise.

Anybody actually watch this new 90210? Me neither.
