Due to her hit song, “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, Mariah Carey is as much a staple of the Holiday Season as Bing Crosby. And thanks to my mom’s office, where holiday music plays non-stop from Thanksgiving until the new year, it is ingrained in my brain.

For that reason, it makes perfect sense that OPI would continue its collaboration with Mariah in their holiday collection, OPI Mariah Carey Holiday 2013. Only this year, not only do we get the usual twelve shades, six being red, we get six new Liquid Sand shades as well. Today, I’m focusing on the non-red portion of the twelve.

This Fall, Zoya is doing their part in removing the negative connotation I associate with satin. Maybe it’s just me but, outside of the benefits of sleeping on a satin pillowcase (it helps maintain a blowout), I always think of satin as being cheesy, like an 80s prom dress. Let’s face it, satin is a silk wannabe.

However, one look at the Zoya Satins collection for Fall 2013 and you know this is no shabby knock-off. It’s pure, luxurious color!

Deborah Lippmann Fall 2013 “Jewel Heist” – Swatches & Review

Diamonds may be some girl’s best friend but I’ll take emeralds and sapphires any day of the week and clearly Deborah Lippmann is on the same page this fall. Lippmann’s Jewel Heist collection takes a trio of rich, jewel tones and elevates them to a whole new blingtastic level with a set of holographic glitter top coats to match.

You know the old pickup line, “Your daddy must have been a thief  because he stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.” Well, Deborah Lippmann must have been a thief because she robbed a jewelry store and put the gems in her polish. Watch the shimmering emerald, vampy sapphire blue and a multi-dimensional gold pop off the page with the addition of the complex, rainbow-reflecting glitters. Like a magpie, you’ll have a hard time focusing on anything else.
