COVERGIRL The Capitol Collection Outlast Nail Glosstinis for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Ever since it was announced that COVERGIRL was partnering with the latest installment of The Hunger Games movie franchise, Catching Fire, I’ve been on the edge of my seat to see what it would bring in terms of nails. COVERGIRL released teaser images of a couple The Hunger Games: Catching Fire inspired looks but there was no actual details on the nail polish until now.

You all know how I flipped for the first set of The Hunger Games nail polishes from China Glaze so I was curious to see what COVERGIRL would bring to the nail table for this epic film series. Continuing the trend of releasing seasonal/limited edition shades in mini Outlast Glosstinis, COVERGIRL’s The Capitol Collection, introduces nine sparkling shades inspired by the film.

We’re just a couple weeks away from the official start of fall and as much as I love summer weather I feel like we’ve been gypped with all the rain and cool temps. At this point, I’m over it and ready for boots, sweaters and jewel-toned nails. Enter, the Sally Hansen Fall 2013 Insta-Dri nail polish shades.

At first glance I wasn’t sure what to expect from these colors. Some of them appear rather frosty in the bottle but, as evidenced below, their looks are quite deceptive. I’m pleasantly surprised by the nail juice inside and I think you will be too.

Mariah Carey for OPI Spring 2013 Nail Polish Collection Swatches & Review

I’m a girl of the Mariah Carey generation. I remember wearing OUT a tape (yes, I said tape) of “Vision of Love” as a teen. 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…

Finger Paints “Fall of Surprises” Fall 2012 Nail Polish Collection Swatches and Review

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you know that in June I had the opportunity to visit the Sally Beauty HQ, home of the Finger Paints brand.

I got to tour the HQ, seeing their museum of vintage beauty appliances, and meet Lindsey and Mindy, who you know if you read the “Eye for Beauty” Blog. Bonus points to them for knowing of my fondness for craft beer and taking me to a kick ass bar in the land of Denton, TX. If you’re ever in the area, head to the Oak Street Drafthouse. You’ll thank me.


Oh and I got to check out the Finger Paints “Fall of Surprises” Fall 2012 collection. I know, I know, way to bury the lead. Needless to say, I kind of flipped when I eyed a copper glitter bomb parked next to my holy nail color trinity of blue, green and purple.

OPI Burlesque Collection for Holiday 2010 Swatches, Review & Comparisons

opi-burlesque-holiday-2010 This holiday, OPI hits a high note with the release of Sony Pictures’ upcoming film Burlesque. With an all-star cast including Cher and Christina Aguilera, this musical written and directed by Steven Antin opens nationwide in theaters on November 24, 2010.

OPI’s Holiday 2010 collection marks the third film collaboration for the brand this year.  Following up the sell out successes of Alice In Wonderland and Shrek, the Burlesque lineup is sure to follow suit.  This year OPI has flipped the script by forgoing their usual six reds in varying finishes to give us six shimmers in warm metallics, a vampy plum and some more traditional reds.

“OPI is thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures’ Screen Gems on this exciting movie release,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The colors were modeled off the majestic glamour, over-the-top costumes and mesmerizing Cabaret that are typically seen in Burlesque performances. The resulting bright, dazzling shades are perfect for the holiday season.”
