Essie 2013 Neon Collection

Get ready to party with essie’s 2013 Neon Collection! These bold & ultra bright polishes will help you light up the night this party season. The collection is a total burst of electrifying color – with hues of blue, purple, pink and green. My favs include – boom boom room (ultra bright party pink), “bouncer it’s me” (vivid blue velvet), and dj play that song (jam-iest neon plum).

Essie Avenue Maintain

Here’s another swatch from the new Essie Spring 2013 collection. Essie Avenue Maintain is a bold high-shine blue. It’s inspired by Avenue Montaigne in Paris – which is also where Chanel’s latest boutique is located and the inspiration behind their limited edition eyeshadow palette. 

This shade is slightly darker than Essie Bikini So Teeny – see that swatch here. I also think it would be the perfect something blue pedicure for all those brides walking down the aisle this year!

Essie Madison Ave-Hue

Inspired by her travels from around the world, Essie’s spring 2013 collection features a combination of soft pastels and lively colors. Madison Ave-Hue s a beautiful bold pink with the slightest shimmer that only you will notice. It reminds me of pink tulips blossoming in the spring.

The other colors in this collection are also lovely. I can’t wait to swatch Hip-Anema and  Go-Ginza!

Kiss Nail Dress Chanel Le Vernis

I fell in love with the new Marabou nail dress design from Kiss. The colorful gemstones look so refreshing over the leopard print. Unfortunately, I didn’t love the way the strips covered my nails. These strips are kind of thick and the stones don’t help the situation either! The strips on my index finger and middle finger looked ridiculous, so I removed them and decided to use Chanel Le Vernis in Vertigo. I thought the dark color would compliment my outfit and the leopard print. Mini crisis adverted! Have you tried these yet, what do you think?

MAC Archie's Girls Collection

Inspired by the icon comic book – MAC Archie’s Girls collection offers fun colors for Spring 2013. It highlights the innocent rivalry between Betty and Veronica with contrasting hues. The Betty collection features bright pops of pink and pastels; while the Veronica collection vamps out with deep reds and dark purples.

Black on black manicure

I went out last weekend and I wanted a sexy manicure to match my LBD. I had recently seen a pic posted by Kim K. on Instagram of a black on black manicure. I liked the idea of back on black matte – but I wasn’t so thrilled about the french tip design.

I picked out China Glaze Black Diamond – a gunmetal black and paired it with a matte effect top coat. My manicurist created designs using black and silver nail art polish. I am in LOVE – I have not stopped looking at my nails. My nails look soo fierce – like a manicure Beyoncé would choose!

Mac Apres Chic

MAC brings effortless glamor to the slopes, MAC Après Chic Collection is a must-have for the season. Après Chic is my favorite lipstick this year. If I had awards to hand out – Lipstick of The Year would go to this shade! It just works so well with my complexion. It’s warm and bright at the same time and looks so good with a basic smokey brown eye!

Hello Kitty Wild Thing

Wild Thing, you make my heart sing oh you make a every – okay okay – I’ll stop with the annoying off pitch singing! It’s just that I get so excited when Hello Kitty brings us grown up items! The Hello Kitty Wild Thing Makeup Palette features 12 eyeshadows, 1 Pen Pal Eyeliner in Black, and a super cute compact mirror all housed together in an adorable black and gold zebra print collectable tin. The eye shadows are all highly pigmented and the eyeliner is very similar to the Nars Eyeliner Stylo pens. The second row is my favorite eyeshadow combo, but you can create endless looks with this palette because all the color compliment each other well. The mini compact mirror lives in my purse and I always get compliments on it!
