This holiday season, OPI celebrates the 50th Anniversary of James Bond with their latest lacquers, the Skyfall Collection. Inspired by the film’s blend of glamour and danger, the collection features twelve limited-edition nail lacquers and a 18k gold leaf top coat. “OPI is thrilled to celebrate 50 years of the style, swagger and mystique associated with Bond 007,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “From metallic and glitter finishes to jewel tones and even a jet black, these lacquers capture the film’s sophisticated and glamorous look.
“Watch for Bérénice Marlohe wearing two Skyfall Collection shades in the film,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With Skyfall, a rich maroon, painted on top of the nail and GoldenEye, a shimmering gold, painted on the undersides, Marlohe’s luxurious manicure will be the one to try this holiday season.”
The Skyfall Collection features six shades that play off the movie’s seductive theme, and another six that offer a more dangerous look, including:
GoldenEye: All eyes will be upon you when you wear this glorious gold.
The Spy Who Loved Me: A red as romantic as the secret agent inside you. (more…)

MSNBC reports that Michelle Obama wore Artistic Colour Gloss Soak Off Color Gel in “Vogue” last night at the Democratic National Convention.
Last night, Michelle Obama nailed her Democratic National Convention speech, but it was her manicure that stole the show. Her nails – painted in a smoky blue (that just so happened to match the hem of her Tracy Reese dress) – nearly broke Twitter.
Okay, I exaggerate…but people were going cray cray trying to guess what brand and shade the F.L.O.T.U.S. was sporting.
Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Executive VP & Artistic Director for OPI, thinks she might know the answer. (more…)
Colour Riche Nail shades (l to r): park ave luncheon, broadway boogie, till the sun comes up, hudson sunset, downtown chic, brownie points. For Colour Riche Le Gloss shades, see below.
As a beauty blogger, sometimes I contact brands to request products I would like to try or products readers have requested that I review. But sometimes, products that I never knew existed – and are a million times better than anything I could’ve asked for – just show up on my doorstep. Today was that kind of day.
I returned from a long day at work to be greeted by a goody box from L’Oreal Paris. Inside was their brand new New York Nudes Collection, a sophisticated limited-edition range that includes six flesh-toned shades of Colour Riche Nail and coordinating Colour Riche Le Gloss. These modern shades – from soft ivory to rich ebony – beautifully complement the unique tonalities of women of all skin tones – creating a flawless nude look.
This is, hands down, my favorite nail polish color ever. I only own 9 colors of polish, and I recently had to buy a new bottle of Sephora by OPI in Opening Night because I had used all of mine up. Every single time I wear this polish I get compliments on it. Daneen asks what color it is so often that it has become a running joke.
This is a perfect cool weather manicure color. It is unexpected yet classic, and dark without being black.
Happy Monday, y’all. I know Mondays can be a total drag, which is why I waited to announce the SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Giveaway winners today. For the following readers, their week is off to a SensatioNail start.
Congrats to… (more…)
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today and here’s what’s on my wish list:
bebe Mixed Media Trench Coat, $119 (after sale: $198)
When I received the Anniversary Sale catalog a few weeks back and spied this trench, it was love at first sight. The faux-leather sleeves are FIERCE and I can’t resist an asymmetrical zipper, so if this ends up fitting (sadly, it doesn’t come in Petite sizes), I’m bringing this bad girl home.
DV by Dolce Vita ‘Folly’ Bootie, $66.90 (after sale: $99.95)
Again…another love-at-first-glance situation (it was also in the catalog). Give me a haircalf bootie in an animal print with an exposed zipper and I’m a happy gal. I don’t really need this boot, but I want it. Truly, madly, deeply.
Hue Denim Leggings, $25.90 (after sale: $39)
Come fall and winter, I live in leggings – and Hue makes some of the highest quality, affordable and fashion forward styles. I already own two pairs of these leggings and I love them (my mom and sister own pairs too). What makes them a must-have is how they suck you in and make your legs and butt look firm and toned. It’s like a denim legging pair of Spanx. Speaking of Spanx… (more…)
I’m not very good at subtle nail polish. I never get a french manicure – too stuffy for me – and I never really got into the habit of using pale pink or nude polish. My nails are either bare, sporting a coat of clear polish, or covered in a great color. I think of nail polish as an accessory – why be boring?!
My allegiance to bright polishes was swayed when I tried Thanks a Windmillion from OPI’s Holland collection. This pale sage green is gorgeous, and looks extra interesting when paired with a matte top coat. I wore this religiously all spring, and am looking forward to bringing it back in the fall to contrast all of my go-to dark colors.
