Happy Friday, everyone! The Nars Wildfire Collection is new for Spring 2017 and features colour for the eyes, and more subdued tones for the lips.  It’s a contrast to the light, pretty, floral-inspired makeup that we usually see this time of year, but it’s still on-trend – especially since aqua and teal shades of eyeshadow […]

Thursday Threes: Selections from CND Vinylux Open Road Spring 2014 Collection

Trying some of the Spring 2014 colours from Vinylux reminded me how much I really like this system.  I used it without a base coat, and it lasted for much longer than any of my other nail polishes have recently, so the system really does work!

OPI Gwen Stefani Collection

After testing out a couple of streaky messy polishes this season, it was really nice to return to OPI’s failsafe formula used, in this case, in the Gwen Stefani collection.  The set of six colours is super pigmented, bright, and a nice transition from fall/holiday to spring. There are two glossy super pigmented cremes (my […]
