I don’t think you can consider yourself a true nail file if you haven’t heard of Zoya’s Color Lock System. This 5-step kit surrounds polish with a protective barrier against moisture, bubbling, chipping and UV damage. The kit contains: Anchor Basecoat, Get Even Ridge Filling Basecoat, Armor Topcoat & UV Block, Hurry Up Speed Dry Drops, and Renew Polish Rejuvenator.
The Color Lock System also includes one of my favorite nail products of all time: Remove+ Nail Polish Remover. The ingenious bottle prevents the spillage that typically accompanies traditional nail polish removers. Plus the formula is lavender-scented and purple, which is pretty. And you know I love me some pretty.
When it comes to getting manicures, my mom and sister are like the US Postal Service…through rain, snow, sleet or hail, the nails must get done. So, being the benevolent beauty blogger that I am, I recently gifted them both with this kit. And of the plethora of products I’ve given them this year, Zoya’s Color Lock System is the one they rave about most.

Hands down, my next nail polish purchase will be Essie’s Cute As A Button – a “juicy persimmon delight” from the brand’s summer 2009 collection. My nails are calling its name!
Today, I stopped by the Bloomie’s MAC counter at the Willow Grove Mall to pick up a few necessities (MAC Clear Lipglass and Nail Lacquer in Peaceable).
While I was there, my girl Hope showed me the coolest trick with the new Style Warrior Nail Lacquers. Paint on a layer of Violet Fire, then let dry. Then apply a layer of Mercenary.
When it’s all said and done, it looks almost identical to one of my fave MAC lipsticks, O.
Please pardon my raggedy cuticles and sloppy paint job. But trust me, it’s gorge in person.
I don’t look good in peach, so I was pleasantly surprised that it looks good on me. Case in point: two of Chanel‘s offerings from Cote d’Azur, the brand’s summer 2009 collection.
Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Orange Fizz drenches nails in a vibrant, orange creamsicle shade that looks gorge against golden tanned skin…which I happen to have (year-round, I might add). Oh, don’t hate…appreciate! Two coats of Orange Fizz followed by a layer of Seche Vite creates a pretty pedi that looks ‘just-did’ for 2 weeks!
And I’m absolutely head over heels for Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in In Love. At first glance, it seems a doppelganger for NARS Orgasm Blush. But upon closer inspection, you’ll find that the pigment is less sheer and sparkly. Light brown girls who have been disappointed by NARS‘ best-selling blush will absolutely swoon over In Love’s peachy glow.
The choice is yours…Truth, Dare or both?
