Is there anything more perfect for Fall than metallics? I was recently playing with some Sephora Formula X Chromes I purchased for my birthday, and wanted to share these beauties with you. I’m really impressed with Sephora Formula X. The breadth of selection the brand offers is incredible. In the store, I can stare at the polish display for hours (but good news, they encourage you to play, not stare). Keep reading for swatches and pricing! [Read more...]
I had the opportunity to check out four new shades of Dermelect ‘ME’ Nail Lacquer recently introduced for Fall, and WOW are these divine additions to your nail polish stash!

The modern manicure is all about mixing finishes, complementary colors, and the unexpected. I was playing with nail swatches the other day, and thought these three shades together would make an excellent purple manicure with a chrone accent nail for fall. All three of these shades are from the Sephora Formula X collection. [Read more...]
I’ve been a bit slow on the reviews these days, so I’m posting this just for fun. Here’s what it looks like when I play with nail lacquer. I’ve become a bit of a color hoarder these days, so my first step is to swatch every shade I own and put it in a fan deck. Then I can breeze through my color collection to see what I’m in the mood to wear. In the photo above, I’m playing with Nail Color to determine which would make a great mani/pedi combo. It’s so easy to do when you have actual samples of what a painted nail would look like in any given color. Plus, it’s just pretty damn fun.
These shades are all from the Sephora Formula X collection. You’ll be seeing more of these beauties in the future. While you’re waiting though, don’t miss Infatuated and Unmistakable for summer. I heart them. I’m wearing Unmistakable on my toes right now, topped with one of the new MAC Nail Transformation top coats (in Highlight).
This gorgeous image, featuring different luxe shades of red? Guess what? It’s all the same nail lacquer: MAC Russian Red! The only difference is the topcoat. Allow me to introduce you to the possibilities of MAC Nail Transformations!
Swatches of MAC Russian Red from left to right: MAC Russian Red (plain), Shadow, Liquid Pigment Gold, Overlaquer, Liquid Pigment Pink, Highlight, and Texturize. Click through for close-up swatches of each gorgeous nail transformation! [Read more...]
Do I love GREEN for Spring and Summer 2014? Why yes, I do! From the butter LONDON Lolly Brights collection is this pure shade of Kelly Green named Sozzled that I can’t get enough of!
There’s something about green and black that I love in the Spring, so my natural choice was to wear my shiny black patent Tory Burch Thora Sandals with my Sozzled pedicure. Click through for more photos, pricing, and where to buy! [Read more...]
