Hearkening back to a time when women were called “dames,” when Victory Rolls and Veronica Lake waves were all the rage in hair, the Deborah Lippmann Fall 2014 “New York Marquee” collection takes inspiration from the luxe fabrics of the 1940s. Think of the chrometastic Chrysler Building, the glitz of Broadway and silk charmeuse gowns.

For as long as I’ve been collecting MAC, their summer offerings have always been a favorite. They come in unique packaging with colors and products that are perfect compliments to a faux glow. Lure, Neo Sci-Fi and Hey Sailor! immediately come to mind.   I’ve discovered some of my fave summer products in those collections, like Skinsheen Leg Spray and Lustre Drops.

Needless to say, I was looking forward to MAC Alluring Aquatic with bated breath and it did not disappoint. The packaging alone makes it drool-worthy. And the polishes inside are great too!

The Gwen Stefani for OPI collection is finally here and all I can say is, IT’S ABOUT TIME. Seriously, how it’s taken this long for the music and fashion icon to come out with a line of nail polish, baffles me. She’s as known for her red lips and tips as she is her unique vocals. Not that she doesn’t stray into the world of nail art, mind you, but when I think of Gwen, I think of bold, fierce red.

So it should come as no surprise that this collection is highlighted by a signature red shade, Over & Over A-Gwen, that comes in its own Gwen-ified packaging. In addition to that, we have six new shades in a range of finishes including OPI’s attempt at a true chrome. Check it out!
