Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas out there. I hope your loved ones spoiled you today.

Good times!  Here are my fave beauty reads of the week.

  1. Thanks so much for the shout out! I assume the Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl collection will launch in the US too… I was really surprised by how much I loved the colours, so I hope you guys get them!

    Oh my Gosh! Thank you for the Shout Out Michelle! You wouldn’t believe the amount of hits I got just from your little plug. It more than tripled my usual hit rate. Girl you are awesome! :)

    I can’t wait to give Kaleidoscope away. She’s so pretty and wasting away in my backup drawer. Have you seen the Limericks people have come up with? They are so much fun!

    Hi Michelle! I am OBSESSED with your blog! I just found it last week and I had no idea people loved nail polish as much as I do! I love, love, love this blog, keep up the good work!

    I also wanted to suggest GOSH nail lacquer, their colours are great and the quality is comparable to OPI. They are cheaper too! The reviews on MUA are stellar. I live in Canada so I am not sure where they sell GOSH products in the States…but check it out if you can, I would loveee to see reviews of their line!

  4. Brittany Blai says:

    I’m so excited I hope I win Kaleidoscope!! And even if I don’t I’m pretty darn proud of my Limerick that I think totally deserves the polish!

    Michelle, I have a question. I love nail polish but more often than not I am completely uninspired when I pull out my colors, and end up not painting my nails at all. Blues and greens tend to not look good on me, and I am hopeless at applying sheers. Advice for me please?

  6. Andrea says:

    I absolutely love Gossip Girl, so I’m so excited for the Nicole by OPI GG collection! Can hardly wait ’til August to pick them up at a Walmart nearby. I like how accesible NOPI is.

  7. Mel says:

    Thanks so much for coming out to par-tay with me!

    FYI (for the ALU fans, of course), I wore Sally Hansen Gunmetal for the birthday festivities. PERFECT roller derby/tough chick color. ;) I love this polish! Still, four days later it looks freshly manicured.

    AND a friend of mine gifted me a special limited edition bottle of OPI Pink of Hearts (2009). Such a cute everyday pink!

    Thanks for the shout out Michelle! :)

    have you seen the diet coke inspired shades? i saw them on perez’s fashion blog:

    my 2 addictions are nail polish and diet coke, so naturally i was interested. any idea if they’re going to be in the states?
