Neutral, natural, nude, whatever you call it, the Spring 2014 runways made “50 Shades of Beige” one of the dominating trends of the season. The Zoya Naturel collection is hoping to capitalize on that trend by offering six new nail polish shades to flatter a wide range of skin tones. The idea is to compliment, not match, your coloring. Warm/cool, pale/tan, Zoya Naturel has a lacquer for you.

As part of their bigger-than-ever holiday collection, OPI Mariah Carey Holiday includes six new Liquid Sand colors. Unlike the Liquid Sand’s that were part of the first Mariah Carey collection, these shades are more refined. No star glitter or giant chunky sequins to be found.

dashing diva tibi couture nail polish 365 untrieds 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

Back when Chanel Particulière was making nail polish headlines, there was talk of a potential dupe in Rimmel London Steel Grey.  Of course, at the time, whenever I would remember to look for it at my local drugstore it was sold out.  Then a few months back I picked up a bottle and I”m just now getting around to trying it out.
