A Red and Pink Combo

Good Morning,

After wearing pink all day on Wednesday I wanted to liven it up some. I wanted to layer with one of my crackle polishes.  After suggestions I went with Veronica's idea a Red Crackle.  I thought that would be an interesting combo.  Lo and behold I love it!!  I applied one coat of OPI Red Shatter in a criss-cross motion topped with Seche Vite Topcoat and off to work I go.  Thanks Veronica! *-*

Red shatter is a jelly...I wish all of the crackles/shatters were in this texture

I have one more Revlon Just Tinted to show you that will be tomorrows NOTD

Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠) Share/Bookmark

Deborah Lippmann New Shades!!! Coming Soon


I have worked directly with some of the world’s top fashion designers on everything from ad campaigns to fashion shows. When I set out to select nail looks for the fall 2011 collections, I noticed a common theme among all of my collaborators: warmth. The clothes featured vivid, lush earth tones—think lush greens, rich reds and intense golds.

I wanted to capture a similar heat and earthiness in the accompanying polishes, but with an added punch. BILLIONAIRE, a moody hunter green, BRICK HOUSE, a shimmering rust, and SINGLE LADIES, a flirtatious red, all have warm undertones, which give them a beautiful intensity, but also have a jewel-like quality so they really make nails pop.


Billionaire: moody hunter green (creme)

Brick House: shimmering rust (shimmer)

Single Ladies: flirtatious red (creme)


Deborah Lippmann’s new shade, STORMY WEATHER, is a collaboration with fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez.

Usually Narciso requests a nude nail to complement his minimalist designs, but for fall 2011 around he wanted something bolder—a color with strength and edge to offset both his collection and the softness of the hair and makeup. For the perfect custom finish, I mixed (and mixed) a new shade by hand in just 24 hours. The final product: an edgy granite that emanated power and intensity. The models who walked the show (and who rarely, if ever, comment on the nail color) gushed over the shade. And so STORMY WEATHER was born an edgy granite (crème) for a strong fall statement.

Just in time for the holiday season,

Deborah Lippmann Gets the Party started

Nothing says ‘Party’ like the magnetic sparkle of glitter. So for the biggest party season of the year, I’ve created shades that truly dazzle. Get This Party Started, a set of three glitters, was inspired by the overwhelming demand for my best selling Happy Birthday, a glittery party in a bottle. The set includes Happy Birthday, along with two new variations of the sparkling shade: Forget You and Candy Shop. They’re both packed with the same unique hexagon-shaped glitter that gives Happy Birthday its magnificent glint, only Forget You has a sheer black base and Candy Shop a bubblegum pink.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: a party in a bottle (glitter)
CANDY SHOP: bubblegum pink (glitter)
FORGET YOU: party all night (glitter)

I love how festive all three look and feel, whether wrapped a round a champagne glass or peeping out of a glamorous pump. But what I truly love the most: how a few coats of any shade instantly transform you into the life of the party.



WHERE TO FIND IT: Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and online at

Revlon Just Tinted...Dawn

Good Morning,

Today, I'm showing you another Just Tinted. (see my debut about them here) This one is Dawn.  It's hard for me to describe it's color.  My picture sure isn't accurate.  It's like a pink and orange mixed together.  My picture is showing up like an apricot colored orange but in real life it's a little more darker .  Look at it's jelly goodness.  I'm loving these! 3 coats were used along with a topcoat.

Maybe tomorrow for Pink Wednesday I'll put on Just Tinted Desire. 

Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠) Share/Bookmark

Finger Paints Peace, Love & Color Summer Collection 2011...Swatches and Review

Good Morning Everyone *-*

I know it's been awhile since I posted a nail of the day.  You know how it is life can get in the way.  I am happy to show you the Finger Paints Summer Collection.   These are great to wear throughout these hot summer months.

                             Give Pink A Chance
I would call this a Watermelon Pink.  It's gorgeous...Can you believe it's opaque with one coat! I did use 2 coats.

Groovy Green 
Green Apple Green Frost.  There is some brush strokes to this one.  2 coats were used.

All You Need Is Color 
Teal and Green glitter in a clear base.  I used 3 coats to cover visible nail line. When dry it's a bit dull so I used a topcoat to bring in some shine. 

Psychedelic Sunshine
Egg Yoke Yellow in a jelly base. Packed full of multi colored shimmer yellow, green, blue, and orange.  The formula on this one was thick but applied smoothly.  I used 2 coats but should have used 3 to cover visible nail line.

Outta Sight Orange
Orange with pink and yellow shimmer.  The pink doesn't show up on this picture but it's there. Very easy to apply nice formula.

Peaceful Purple
Purple, Red, and Silver Glitter in a clear base.  This one is totally awesome.  I added topcoat to give it more shine.

I love this collection.  A nice variety for the summer.  My least favorite one is Groovy Green and you know green is one of my favorites.  It's my least favorite because it's frosty and leaves brush strokes, but I do love the color.  My favorites  are Give Pink A Chance.  It's like a coral pink and it's a one coater.  Also love All You Need Is Color and Peaceful Purple both are very nice glitters.

These can be purchased at your local Sally's Beauty Supply Store.

Do you have these already? Which ones are your favorite?

These were sent to me for review

Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠) Share/Bookmark

How To Give Yourself A Pedicure

Good Morning,

It's Summertime you know what that means.  We will be wearing our open toe sandals.  So, guess what...we have to take care of our feet.  That's right we don't want to look like we have been kicking flour :P Lol!

Here are 10 easy steps :

1. Remove any old nail polish thoroughly.

2. Soak your feet in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes. Add Epsom salts or any other commercial foot soak.

3 Clip your toenails straight across using a toenail clipper or scissors. Clipping straight across will help prevent ingrown toenails. 

4. Use your glass file to file the toenails to smooth any rough edges. 
5. Push back your cuticles. Use a cuticle moisturizer if they do not push back easily after soaking.

6. Massage your feet with a moisturizing lotion. Use an exfoliating lotion if the skin is dry and/or roughened. Use a loofah or pumice stone on roughened areas.  Rinse off and dry with a cotton towel.

7. Swipe toenails with nail polish remover prior to applying base coat to remove any lotion that may have gotten on the toenails.  (I prefer to use Zoya Remove+)  Separate your toes. Put cotton between your toes, or use a toe separator there are many cute ones you can buy.

8. Apply a base coat and give it time to dry.

9. Apply your favorite polish, cleaning up any stray marks with a cotton swab, or Elf Concealer brush  from Target,  dipped in polish remover.

10. Complete the pedicure with a top coat of clear polish.

There you have it.  That wasn't too hard was it..Now go and show off your cute sandals :D

Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠) Share/Bookmark
