Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer

Of all the places I’ve traveled, Italy is definitely my favorite. The landscapes of Tuscany, the history of Rome, the unique charm and food of Venice, I could go on an on. All of those memories come flooding back as I play with the new Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer collection that is named after Italian locales, three of which I’ve visited. I can never have enough foils in my life and these flecked nail polish colors are so me.

SAG Awards Nail Art – Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab

Award shows are my idea of sports. I would much rather watch the red carpet action than the Cavs play, even with LeBron back in town. Between the E! red carpet coverage, Fashion Police recaps and the shows themselves, my DVR is a flurry of activity.

This past Sunday, the actor-centric SAG Awards aired and, per usual, I was live-tweeting the red carpetwaiting for my favorite film and tv show casts to win, and they did. Yay Birdman!

When Lupita Nyong’o stepped out on the carpet in this floral Elie Saab, I swear I could hear an actual gasp on Twitter. Her gorgeous gown stuck in my head and I just had to recreate it as nail art. And it just so happens that the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection was perfect for the task.

OPI Hawaii Spring 2015 Swatches and Review

OPI Spring 2015 - Hawaii swatches & review via @alllacqueredup

OPI Spring 2015 – Hawaii

Growing up, all I knew of Hawaii was what I saw in the surfing movie North Shore (not the FOX TV show, though I watched that too) and that my mother wanted to go but felt it was one of those places that you visit and never want to leave. If I had a dollar for every time she said, “If I go to Hawaii, I’m not coming home,” well, I wouldn’t have to work.

This spring, OPI is celebrating the island state with a nail polish collection as colorful as the tropical paradise it represents. The twelve nail polish colors of OPI Hawaii include a variety of finishes and a rainbow of hues.

Morgan Taylor Cinderella Swatches & Review

Morgan Taylor Cinderella review via @alllacqueredup

Morgan Taylor Cinderella

Of all the fairy tale princesses, Cinderella was my favorite as a child. I mean, what little girl wouldn’t love to have a fairy godmother to whip up a ball gown out of scraps with a simple, “Bibbidi bobbidi boo!”  I remember teetering around in a pair of embellished lucite mules I found in my mom’s closet, pretending they were glass slippers. And I still have my Cinderella VHS and Madame Alexander Cinderella dolls, both the ball gown and “poor” versions.

Now Disney is releasing a live action version of Cinderella with Cate Blanchett as the as the evil stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother and Morgan Taylor has partnered with film on a nail polish collection. Morgan Taylor Cinderella is their Spring 2015 collection and it’s filled with sweet shades, worthy of a princess.
