The China Glaze App – Now for Android!

By on October 14, 2013
in China Glaze, News with 8 Comments

Over the past couple years, I’ve been pitched numerous times about new mobile apps for nail polish fanatics and they have always been solely for iPhone/iPad users. Since I don’t recommend anything I can’t personally test myself, I haven’t posted about them, until now.

China Glaze launched their China Glaze App last spring and now us #TeamAndroid peeps can get in on the action.

What’s unique about this free app is the “Match A Color” functionality. You simply take a picture of an object, click on a spot you want to color match, and get a list of China Glaze nail polish suggestions.

I took a picture of the Bobbi Brown Navy nail polish I posted earlier today and Man Hunt and First Mate are great alternatives, though not dupes. Lighting definitely alters the suggestions you get.

The app also features the latest collection releases, videos and a “Try It On” feature that is, honestly, not that accurate as all the shades look like cremes. You can also “favorite” shades and share your finds on social media.

The China Glaze App is available now for free in the Google Play store and iTunes

Have you tried the app? Do  you have a fave app geared toward nail polish fans?

Makeup Wars: Color Wars – Teal

I know I’ve mentioned it in the past but one of the best things to come from starting this blog is the people I’ve met. Readers, brand reps and my fellow beauty bloggers. My blogging buddies have become some of my closest friends, which is why I’m thrilled to be joining a group of my fave ladies in Makeup Wars!

Makeup Wars is a battle among bloggers to share their favorite products in a variety of topics; fave purple nail polish, best sunscreens, etc. This week is Color Wars! Each blogger in the group selected a shade to highlight and I chose TEAL!

I have an affection for teal since it combines two of my favorite shades, blue and green. And unlike Jennifer Lopez’s character in The Wedding Planner, I do not associate teal with “the color of gangrene.” It’s a fab accent color for eyes and simply stunning on nails.

Not only is teal shaping up to be one of the hot colors for Fall 2013, it’s also part of my FingerPaints A Pair Affair by All Lacquered Up collection. And today I’m thrilled to give you the first real look at FingerPaints Our Tips Are Tealed, paired with one of my all-time favorite eyeliners. Plus, I have three more gorgeous teal polishes to share.

Summer Nail Trend Alert – Glitter-Tipped White Nails

White parties. Crisp, white pants. A fitted white tee. During this sticky, humidity-filled season, wearing white feels clean, chic and fresh. That goes for nails as well. We’ve talked about the white nail trend in the past but this year’s version brings sparkle to the party.

Finding the perfect white nail polish can be hard. They can be too sheer, streaky or chalky. Adding a glittery tip gives white nails a funky edge and keeps the look from feeling too dated or mod.

This week’s People Magazine features top celebrity manicures for summer chosen by nail pros and I’m thrilled to be one of them. Keep reading to see which celebrity’s look I selected and how you can get it yourself!
