Normally this would give an “indoor kid” like me the heebie jeebies but I can’t get mad at the adorable bejeweled rings that come with each bottle. It’s the only way a bee or beetle would EVER come in contact with my skin on purpose.

Get your passports ready for we’re off on a European adventure. No, not with the Griswolds, though I would totally tag along with Clark, Ellen, Rusty and Audrey. Instead, OPI is whisking us away to far off places with the OPI Euro Centrale collection for Spring 2013.

OPI has a long tradition of selecting countries or regions for their semi-annual seasonal collections (Australia, Chicago, South America) and although they’ve done Europe before (2002) this time they are focusing on countries in the middle of the continent; Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland. I’ve broken down this collection of twelve shades into two parts and knowing the love I have for blue and purple nail polish, a close second to my undying devotion to green, reviewing these colors first is just a given.

Deborah Lippmann “Staccato” Speckled Nail Polish Collection Swatches & Review

Growing up, there were two absolute truths about the Mismas kitchen. There was always a bag of popcorn kernels in the pantry (Dad and I have a lifelong obsession with the stuff) and there was always ice cream in the freezer. It’s a truth that holds up to this day in my home, and it’s usually a chip flavor from Graeter’s. They make THE BEST chip ice creams in the world, trust!

So you can only imagine the squee moment I had over the Deborah Lippmann, ice cream-themed, Staccato nail polish collection.

She created the nail polish equivalent of Strawberry Chip (I’m Not Edible), Mint Chocolate Chip (Rockin’ Robin) and Cookies n Creme (Polka Dots & Moonbeams) ice cream! Combining soft pastels with shiny black glitter, Stacatto is a rocker take on pastel. Check them out!

Mani Monday – Wedding Glitz with Essie and Sally Hansen

Over the long Thanksgiving weekend, the BF and I traveled to Pittsburgh to celebrate the nuptials of two of our friends. In the past, my go-to wedding dress color is black so I pair it with fun nail color choices but since I joined Weight Watchers and shed 55 pounds, I’ve become a bit bolder in my clothing choices.

I am slowly incorporating more color into my wardrobe so, lately, I find myself opting for metallic nail colors for events. Since my dress was red with a black leopard print, I found myself going down the silver/pewter road for the special occasion.

At the time, I was in the middle of reorganizing my hot mess of an office so I was fortunate to have recently received Essie Beyond Cozy from the Winter 2012 collection and Sally Hansen Shoot The Moon which will become part of the permanent line in March but is out in promo displays now. Together, they take glitz and glam to the next level. Check it out!

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.
