Essie Neon 2015

Essie and China Glaze must be partying together, for they both used music culture as inspiration for summer collections.

L’Oreal Spring 2015 – Haute Florals review

Before you start snoring over the idea of “spring florals,” wait a minute and check out L’Oreal’s take on the perennial spring trend. There are no boring pastels or trite carnation pinks in the L’Oreal Haute Florals collection. I spotted a display, featuring nail art by L’Oreal Global Nail Designer, Tom Bachik, at my local Bed, Bath and Beyond a month ago and scooped up a few bottles, knowing it will sell out.
