Polish Perfection – OPI Liquid Sand

I am totally obsessed with OPI’s Liquid Sand nail lacquers. These give a matte pebbly finish to the nails which is matte and so totally different from your usual nail look, and textured enough to be super interesting and fun to wear. If you’re into this as much as I am, you’ll want to check […]

Essie Resort 2013

Even though Essie is known for clean nails and a nice mature aesthetic, I feel as if recently, they’ve really been excelling at trend colours and those that are bright and flirty.  For the most part, their formulations are so smooth and I love that they do more creams than shimmers, because I’m a cream kind […]

Dior Grand Bal Christmas 2012 Collection

This Christmas, Dior gives us a blast from the past with it’s Grand Bal collection. I say that it’s a blast from the past, because the collection features the older Dior packaging which was luxe and beautiful, but essentially out of date when the streamlined packaging of other brands became the norm.
