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.

Polished: Milani Fresh Teal

 Polished: Milani Fresh Teal

Whenever I am in a drug store, I end up wandering down the beauty aisles just in case there is something new that I need. Milani is one of my go-to drug store brands, as they always have a nice range of fun colors. Last week, Fresh Teal jumped out at me.

Pretty much every magazine listed teal as a trend color for the fall, and this is a great one. It is bright and fun without being too neon or obnoxious. I also really like Milani’s brush – it is thin enough to get right into the corners of the nail without running over onto your cuticles. I’m not usually one to attempt any sort of nail art, but I feel like this polish would pair perfectly with polka dots or a stripe of of OPI’s That’s Berry Daring. And at $4.49 a bottle, this is a great way to try out a trend color in an affordable way.

Polished: How To Remove Glitter Nail Polish

 Polished: How To Remove Glitter Nail Polish

I love glitter nail polish. It is sparkly and fun and statement-making and just so nice to look at while I type all day. I do not love removing said glitter nail polish. I usually apply 2-3 coats to get maximum sparkle impact, but then am stuck scrubbing and scraping it off when I decide it is time for a new manicure. Personally, I do not think it is right to spend more time removing nail polish than it took to apply it in the first place.

Enter my glitter fairy godmother at a nearby beauty store. I had a bottle of Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance in my hand – it is a gorgeous color, but I was complaining about what a pain it is to remove glitter nail polish.

She suggested placing a nail-polish remover soaked cotton ball on the polished nail, wrapping the tip of your finger and cotton ball in aluminum foil, waiting a few minutes, and the glitter would come right off.

I was skeptical but intrigued. After Google-ing “nail polish remover + aluminum foil interactions” and deciding that this method would not make my fingers fall off, I gave it a try.

HOLY CRAP, did it work. I made myself little alien fingers, waited about 5 minutes, and voila! The nail polish came almost completely off, and the leftover edges came off after another swipe. I am beyond excited to have a foolproof way to remove my most glittery polish!

Polished: Nails Inc. Fitzroy Square 3D Glitter

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

Hello, readers!

My name is Alyssa, and I am lucky enough to be one of Daneen’s coworkers. As you may have noticed, I like a good manicure (looky here and here).

Since Daneen literally has her hands full with one-year-old Westley, I get the chance to bring you the latest nail news.

Recently, a batch of nails inc. colors came into the office, and I was immediately taken with nails inc. Fitzroy Square 3D glitter, which is described as clear with green glitter and chunky teal glitter. Swoon. Though I work in a business casual office, envelope-pushing nail polish is acceptable, so I knew this was my next manicure.

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of glitter that this polish contains. Most glitter nail polish has a few flecks with mostly clear, but this was saturated, which was great. Here is what three coats looks like…

This polish is definitely not for the faint of heart, but I got a lot of compliments on it. I absolutely recommend this polish for anyone looking for a little sparkle!

nails inc. is available at Sephora, for $9.50 a bottle.

Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer

 Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer

My natural nails, sans polish, are so dull that I’m kind of embarassed to go without polish. So when I saw Revlon’s new Crazy Shine Nail Buffer at my local CVS, I snatched it up. And, let me tell you…the name is accurate. Crazy accurate, in fact. My iPhone photo above doesn’t do the shine justice.

The double sided buffer smoothes and evens out the nail surface – creating an outrageous, mirror-like finish. The tool promises to create 400% more shine than bare nails. To be honest, I couldn’t tell you the difference between a 100% and 400% increase in shine, but I will say that it looks like I’m wearing a clear topcoat on my nails. And this was achieved in about three minutes (all 10 nails) – no drying time necessary. What I also love is that you can use the white side on polished nails – to restore shine when your mani is looking a lil murky.

Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer retails for $3.99 – but right now it’s on sale at CVS for $2.99.

OPI Shorts Story

 OPI Shorts Story

Peep my polish. It’s OPI Shorts Story. I have my friend/co-worker, Alyssa, to thank for this discovery. She’s been wearing it for the past week and after she caught me coveting her pedi like a thousand times, she benevolently bought me a bottle. This lovely lacquer is a bright, blue based pink that covers perfectly with 2 coats. It’s the perfect summer shade for me, as it pops against my tan skin – without looking garish. Though I don’t work in a corporate environment that frowns on trendy nail colors, I imagine that this would be a great shade for girls who wanna have fun with their manicures, but also need to look business class-y (provided that you keep your nails short).
