Did Michelle Obama Wear OPI Nail Polish at the 2012 DNC?

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.

L’Oreal Paris New York Nudes Collection

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 morning, I wanted to do something interesting with my makeup for work. My first thought was to wear some fun lipstick, but then I remembered that it was going to be a hot and humid day, and that I would probably melt.

Enter MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream in 11 Gold, advertised as an ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof cream.. These pots of color are amazing – great color, easy to apply, and don’t go anywhere until you use makeup remover. I opted for a quick swipe of this color as liner, extended a bit into a cat eye. I also put a little bit underneath my eyes, to mirror the top lid. (more…)
