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.
Yesterday, 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.
And 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.
But I’m making it up to you…with a fantabulously unexpected giveaway!!! Nothing like a beauty bribe to keep you coming back. You know you love me.
This week, I’ve joined forces with Essie to spoil one reader pretty with these cool jewel-toned nail polishes in the season’s hottest color palette. The collection compliments fall’s bold blast of color with six stunning shades ranging from rich, elegant reds to deep, luscious purples.
Each bottle retails for $8. Or purchase the full collection for $45. Or you could enter this week’s giveaway – and if you win, the entire collection would be FREE!
To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Essie Fall 2008 Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Wednesday, August 20th. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Thursday, August 21st, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.
Oooh…and watch my very first video!!! But be sure to take your Dramamine before viewing…
Last Thursday, nail trendsetter Rihanna got a white hot mani/pedi at the 8th Street Dashing Diva nail salon. Girlfriend is a gal on the go – as you can see, she dashed out of Dashing Diva with wet toenails.
