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

Peachy Keen

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.

 Peachy Keen

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.

instyle+magazine+june+2009 Matte Nails NOW

As a beauty expert, I have the skinny on which trends are going to blow up come next season. And one that I’m particularly excited about is matte nail polish.

Most of the upcoming matte nail polish formulations haven’t yet hit shelves, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until fall to rock the trend. The June issue of In Style Magazine has a great tip:

“Simply use your base coat as a top coat to remove shine from your nail lacquer.”

Genius! Thanks, In Style!

Zoya MATTEVELVET Collection For Fall 2009

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

zoya+mattevelvet+collection+nail+polish Zoya MATTEVELVET Collection For Fall 2009Okay, I realize that summer hasn’t yet arrived. But Zoya has some exciting news for fall 2009, and it’s impossible for me to keep my big mouth shut until July. Just can’t do it.

After working with hundreds of matte formulations and color options, the Zoya color experts have just announced three limited edition MATTEVELVET shades for fall.

Loredana: gunmetal gray matte shimmer
Dovima: black matte shimmer
Posh: wine matte shimmer

Designed to appeal to a multitude of matte color trend lovers (including every metro mod, vintage stylista, retro pin up, goth beauty, street chic fashionista and color junkie out there), MATTEVELVET shades deliver the new color of fashion. Zoya’s exclusive blend of matte base and subtle shimmer result in utterly wearable and truly stylish nail polish.

MATTEVELVET is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. And due to the unique matte formulation, the color isn’t as long-wearing as Zoya’s traditional nail color.

MATTEVELVET will be available starting June 1, 2009 and retails for $6 per bottle.

opi+colorcopia OPI Colorcopia: Your Old Faves Are Back For A Limited TimeToday, I met up with my Mom and she was sporting the most gorgeous magenta mani. When I asked the color, she said, “It’s OPI Kinky in Helsinki. I think it’s new.”

The name was vaguely familiar, but I knew that the shade hadn’t been new for at least a couple of years. So I did some research and found that my mom, while misinformed, was on the right track.

OPI’s new Colorcopia collection is a limited edition collection celebrating over 20 years of OPI favorites. Best sellers from the last 20 years of OPI nail lacquer are back to celebrate OPI’s 20th anniversary.

The Colorcopia lineup includes:
