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

OPI Matte Collection for Fall 2009

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

opi+matte OPI Matte Collection for Fall 2009As I predicted a few months back, matte is going to be the trend for nails come fall. But you needn’t wait until the leaves start turning to rock this look. You can start turning heads this very minute.

This month, OPI releases its long-awaited Matte Collection for Fall 2009. Six of OPI’s best-selling shades get a makeover with a fashion-forward finish.

OPI Matte is cutting edge for nails in terms of sophistication and style,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI executive vice president and artistic director. “An all-matte nail is fresh, confident, and very fashion runway, and OPI Matte is meant for those moments when you want to make a major fashion statement.”

To kick your matte nails up a notch, Suzi suggests painting the entire nail in one of the matte shades, then glossing the tip in the coordinating original OPI nail color. It’s like a funkified French Mani.

But if you choose to go matte, here’s a word of warning: OPI’s Matte polishes do not wear as long as the original lacquers. To maintain the matte finish, do not use a base coat, top coat, drying drops or hand lotion (yikes!) when wearing this new formulation.

The OPI Matte Collection includes:

Alpine Snow – A fresh crisp white
Gargantuan Green Grape – Green kissed by the summer sun
La Paz-itively Hot - A hot pink perfect for when you’re Bo-livia la vida loca
Lincoln Park After Dark – Where midnight meets purple
Russian Navy – Wait until you see this deep-sea indigo!
You Don’t Know Jacques! – If you don’t know how trendy this taupe is!

Considering my favorite nail color of all time, it’s pretty obvious which of these shades is at the tippy top of my shopping list.

Nail Phile Must Have: Zoya Color Lock System

Posted on by daneen in Holy Grail, Nails | Leave a comment

zoya+color+lock+system Nail Phile Must Have: Zoya Color Lock SystemI 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.

mac+nail+lacquer O My Goodness: Coolest Trick With MACs Style Warrior Nail Lacquers!

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.
