Layla Cosmetics is an Italian brand based in Milano that I was introduced to at The Makeup Show NYC. I was intrigued by their assortment of nail polish shades and finishes and even got an application demo from the rep. I was immediately sold once I saw how nice they applied and the ultra rich pigmentation. Coral Bay is a bright coral toned red that is an awesome color for Spring and Summer. It’s so fun yet still work appropriate.
Texture polish is the new wave in nail trends. Every brand is coming out with their own version and the latest to hit the shelves is Milani’s Limited Edition Texture Creams. The Texture Creams come in six bright & vibrant shades that dries down to a matte finish with a textured look and feel. Makes me think of freshly painted concrete.
I recently ran out of one of my favorite polishes of all time China Glaze For Audrey and was bummed when I couldn’t find it in any of my local stores. That was until I ran into Wet n’ Wild’s Megalast Salon Nail Color in I Need A Refresh-Mint since in the bottle it appeared to be an exact dupe… and indeed it is.
Mirror mirror on the wall… Who’s the fairest of them all? That would be Sparitual Looking Glass! OMG this polish is so gorgeous. A silver foil, opaque in one coat and goes on smooth. I wore this polish constantly for the month of December and it was my New Years Eve polish of choice.
I can’t believe that it is Christmas Eve already. While you shop for your last minute gifts and finish wrapping, all while prepping Christmas dinner and decorating the house, you are probably also thinking about what to wear, how to style your hair, your makeup routine for the day and lastly what color to wear on your nails. Whew that’s a lot! You can scratch that last thing off of the list as I have the perfect holiday mani & pedi for you and it’s all about the bling bling. Milani One Coat Glitters and Jewel FX Nail Lacquers are perfect for the holidays.
Don’t you just hate it when you get a fresh pedicure only for your socks or shoes to mess it up? I can’t stand when that happens, all of my hard work down the drain. Well I no longer have that problem thanks to Pedi-Sox! Pedi-Sox are open toe socks designed to keep your feet cozy and clean while allowing your toenails to dry completely after a pedicure.
Mint Candy Apple is absolutely GORGEOUS! A pastel mint green creme from the Winter 2009 Sweet Time of the Year Collection. This is one of the most talked about Essie polishes and it is definitely worth the hype!
