Nicole by OPI is teaming up with the Kardashian/Jenner family for Kardashian Kolors, a collection of 14 new nail lacquer shades inspired by these six small screen stars. Kris Jenner and her five daughters – Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner – are known for their head-to-toe unique style, which now includes nails.
“We are so excited to work with everyone’s favorite TV family – the Kardashians – to share a diverse collection of fashion-forward shades,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “With lacquers ranging from high-shine and sparkly hues to neutral taupe and pinkish coral, Kardashian Kolors offers the perfect accessory for every woman – from teens to moms and everyone in between.”
My co-worker just tipped me off to an awesome Bloomingdale’s promo code. Enter SURVEY at checkout for $50 off your order of $100 or more. I’m not positive how long this deal lasts (may just be 24 hours – who knows?), so if there’s something at Bloomie’s you’ve had your eye on, now’s the time to pounce.
I’m in North Carolina where it is hot AND humid frequently. I’ve been searching for the perfect facial sunscreen that doesn’t make me look chalky and doesn’t melt off in the humidity. Any suggestions?
Thank you, Jamie
If your question about sunscreen came to me about a year ago, I probably would not have answered because until recently, I was not a fan of the SPF products on the market. Like you said, they tend to make you look chalky and I feel that makeup doesn’t sit or blend well over it. I am not suggesting that you shouldn’t use an SPF. In fact, I strongly recommend that women apply sunscreen daily to protect the skin and prevent skin damage.
I’ve found an amazing product by Josie Maran Cosmetics that I love! It will not make you look chalky and your makeup will blend nicely and stay true to its color. Argan Oil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 40 blocks all the harmful UVA and UVB rays – but this product is different as it contains Argan Oil which repairs and reverses damage caused by the sun, fights signs of aging and improves skin tone for a radiant, renewed complexion. Oh, and one more thing – you can use it as a primer as well! Need I say more?

Bed Head Foxy Curls 1-1/4 Inch Tourmaline Ceramic Conical Styling Iron creates softer, shinier, natural looking curls and waves – without frizz. The iron heats up in just 30 seconds, and the temperature dial has multiple heat settings that can be adjusted to suit your hair texture. The cool tip lets you get a grip, without fear of burning your fingers. And forgetful gals will appreciate the iron’s automatic shutoff feature – which powers down after an hour.
To catch some Gisele-esque waves, follow these instructions:
For a looser curl at the ends, take a 2-inch section of hair and put the end under the kink-free mini clamp. Hold the iron at a vertical angle and rotate it, wrapping the hair tightly around the barrel. Hold the iron in this position for a few seconds, depending on your hair type. Release the clamp and pull the iron out from the center of the curl. For a looser curl at the roots, place hair closest to the roots under the mini clamp and wrap hair down the barrel, leaving the ends out. Repeat this process until your desired look is achieved.
Natural curls are never uniform in size or direction – so to create “maybe she’s born with it” ringlets, it’s best to alternate curling methods. Once you’ve finished your entire head, let the curls cool and then gently shake them or loosen them by finger combing.
