The JINsoon Tibi nail polish collection for Fall 2013 is, in a word, SPARK-TACULAR! Known for her high fashion, glossy cremes, Jin Soon Choi, took a different route with her eponymous line when she teamed up with tibi designer, Amy Smilovic.

Sticking to her simple, sophisticated roots, Jin created five sparkling shades that are refined and elegant. Yet, adding a layer of the new Matte Maker top coat brings out the urban, utilitarian feel of Tibi’s fall line.

I was deeply in my grunge phase when Daydream released yet I was the first one on the dance floor when “Fantasy” came on. One of my best friends in high school had Mariah Carey hair and I was beyond jealous. Even more-so when she straightened it. I mean, WHY? Hell, I still envy Mariah’s curls decades later. So when OPI announced a collaboration with the iconic diva, my curiosity was piqued.

Mariah Carey for OPI Spring 2013 nail polish collection featuring Liquid Sand texture

What I wasn’t expecting was to see the emerging trend of texture polishes in Mariah Carey for OPI. I think of Mariah as a pretty classic nail girl which is why this collection is divided into two sections; The Studio Shades (ie traditional) and The Stage Shades (aka Liquid Sand). Let’s take a look…
