Sinful Colors 'Pretty In Pink' Collection


Pink or red? Your only options for Valentine's Day colors :)

Check out Sinful Colors 'Pretty in Pink' Collection. Beautiful shades of pinks...and majorly affordable! You can find Sinful Colors nail polish in drugstores (in and outside of the US), and at the affordable price of $1.99! I'm wearing Soul Mate in my pictures, with a base coat, 2 color coats, and fast drying top coat. The nail polish went on really smooth. This color specifically would look awesome with a tan (fake tan, that is!).Here is a breakdown of the colors in the collection:
Pink Forever - Bazooka meets Bam-Bam to equal beautiful
Beautiful Girl - Classic ballerina with a flirty finish
Glass Pink - Sheer, shiny, shimmer-happy bliss
Boom Boom - Magenta-infused pink, which pops on toes and tips alike
Scandal - No-nonsense neon, slick and sensational
Soul Mate (pictured) - Muted peachy pink with a melon twist

On a separate note, check out this awesome ring I got from Forever 21. It's a double ring, so it fits around my ring finger and middle finger. I get so many compliments on a $6 ring!

CND Shellac in Negligee

CND Shellac in Negligee. Beautiful sheer pink, would be a perfect fit with french tips.

It's so nice not having to worry about my nails during the work week. My BFF Tina did them on Sunday, and I'm good to go for the week and then some :) I would highly suggest trying a Shellac manicure out before a vacation or big event. Seriously, no chips!

The only downside is the removal. It takes awhile and you have to use acetone. Other than that, I saw it's worth trying out at least once :)

NARS Vintage Nail Polish Collection


Introducing the NARS Vintage Nail Polish Collection! Five shades, resurrected by popular demand, with NARS’ signature longwearing formula. Imparting an initial high gloss luster that is water and detergent resistant, these vintage polishes are being brought out from the archives for a limited time. With classic cinema as their common theme, below are the shades (with original launch dates), their descriptions and the movies that inspired them.

Mash (1996)

Army green infused with gold

The comedy about the staff of a Korean War field hospital using humor to keep their sanity in the face of war. The film inspired the TV series M*A*S*H.

King Kong (1996)

Copper brown infused with gold

A classic movie about the infamous giant ape who becomes smitten with beauty

Midnight Express (1996)

Deep navy

The 1970s film for an inmate’s opportunity to escape from prison

Zulu (1996)

Forest green

A British war movie starring Stanley Baker and Michael Caine, directed by Cy Endfield in 1964

Full Metal Jacket (1998)

An epic Vietnam War movie directed by Stanley Kubrick in 1987



Jessica Nail Polish in Blue Blast

I showed my University of Michigan school spirit with Jessica Cosmetics Blue Blast nail polish on Saturday...Go Blue!!!

Shape of Beauty Awards

More than 3,000 readers, SHAPE editors, and beauty experts across the country named these good-for-you skin, makeup, and hair products the top picks of 2010.

Here are a few picks from a handful of the categories:

Facial Cleansers
• Kinerase PhotoFacials Daily Exfoliating Cleanser ($40; sephora.com)
Improvements in skin texture come from a mix of antioxidant-rich superfoods—including kiwi, pineapple, and pomegranate—in combination with jojoba and silica beads.


Anti-Aging
• Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller ($23; at drugstores)
The three rollers massage away swelling and “deliver a potent dose of anti-agers like pentapeptides, which build collagen.


Body Firming
• Bliss FatGirlScrub ($38; blissworld.com)
No scrub will wash away your cellulite, but this one leaves skin “smoother and tighter.” Red algae reduces water retention, Himalayan salt exfoliates, and peppermint extract makes it feel cool and refreshing in the shower.


Lip color
• MAC Cremesheen Glass Lip Gloss ($18; maccosmetics.com)
This gloss is “shiny but somehow not sticky,” said a tester. (The secret is in the formula, a mix of soybean oil and aloe.)


Foundation
• Revlon PhotoReady Makeup SPF 20 ($14; at drugstores)
Photographers know that flattering lighting makes models look gorgeous. This new foundation uses similar logic; it has light-reflecting pigments that create the optical illusion of better skin. It covers pores, redness, and scars, all without caking.


Shampoo and Conditioner
• Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair ($24; aveda.com)
Rich in repairing proteins and hydrating essential oils, this leave-in treatment helps negate any damage from hot tools or UV rays.


Mood-Boosting Fragrance
• Kim Kardashian Eau de Parfum ($35 for 1 oz.; sephora.com)
You’d expect a bold, sultry blend from reality TV star and SHAPE cover model Kim Kardashian, and her new fragrance does not disappoint.
It’s a heady mix of florals—like jasmine, tuberose, and gardenia—anchored by earthy jacaranda wood.


Nails
• Best color Essie Nail Polish in Angora Cardi ($8; essie.com)
This deep, dusty rose was the testers’ fave: It felt trendy, but not too ‘out there’ to wear to work.

MAC Nail Trends F/W 2010





Nail Trend F/W 10

Mistress of the art of the sophisticated nail, Jin Soon was inspired this season by the sensual pleasures of the Forbidden City for Nail Trend F/W ’10 – colours taken from the sculptures, tiles, architecture, fabrics, and decorative papers of Imperial China. Jin synthesized this vision to arrive at a collection in exotic and ravishing combinations of orange, blue, taupe, green, purple and, of course, lacquer red. These hues are opaque and rich with pearl essences for a subtle dimension. Six must-have shades will be sold with the top coat Overlacquer to finish off the manicured look.



China Glaze Fight like a Woman Collection


Join China Glaze Nail Lacquer this October in the battle against breast cancer, one nail at a time! The professional line of nail lacquers brings on the fight with three powerful pinks. Inspired by the women who fight everyday and those that support them in their battle, these fabulous shades are sure to help you defeat the toughest opponents with style and class. China Glaze representative Rachel Schafer voiced that “in an industry dominated by women, for women, it is important that we strive to work together towards finding a cure.

The three colors in “Fight Like A Woman” include:

Encouragement – A baby pink shimmer that brings on the cheer

Endurance – Power through the punches with this raspberry shimmer

Empowerment – Stand up tall with this cotton-candy crème on your nails

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an agency of the World Health Organization dedicated to the science of cancer and promoting international collaboration in cancer research.

The “Fight Like A Woman” Collection will be available at professional beauty supply stores and select salons this September. Availability will be very limited internationally.



CND Shellac Manicure in Romantique

My best girlfriend Tina gave me an at-home Shellac manicure last night. After 25 minutes, and a bottle of wine (!), my nails were painted with a base, 2 color, and a top coat, and out the door dry!

Romanitque is a soft pink that will go with basically any outfit and accessories. It could also be used for a stand-out french manicure base.

I highly suggest trying a Shellac manicure out for your next event or maintenance manicure. Check out CND's website to find the location nearest you! I paid $25 for my last Shellac manicure, but I've heard of salons charging up to $40 (and up to $80 in NYC). I would suggest calling around for the best price in your area.

I'd love to hear your experience with Shellac...comment below!
