L’Oreal Punchy Lychee and Rimmel BritPop

I Bought This|Press Sample

This bright dotticure was inspired by the little girls who live on my street. A couple of them like to pop by when the boyfriend and I are dining on our deck and they’ve become fascinated with my nail polish room and constantly changing manicures. In fact, one held her arms out wide and declared, “Your obsession is this big,” when looking into my office. She’s totally right, ha!

Anyway, last night they came over and I invited them in to see all the Helmer drawers of color, swatch wheels and random nonsense in my room. And together, they decided that my nails needed polka dots in these two colors so I went with it. The 4-year-old who LOVES pink, as most little girls do, was adamant that this new L’Oreal Colour Riche shade go on my nails.

I used the L’Oreal Neons shade, Punchy Lychee, with Rimmel LONDON Salon Pro shade, BritPop, for the dots. And even though Punchy Lychee is more orange-coral than pink-coral, as the bottle color inferred, I love this combo and may need to consult with them from now on. I mean, I have the same taste in music as the 10-year-old, so, why not?

What’s on your nails today? Have you tried the L’Oreal Neons or new Rimmel Salon Pro formula?

Iggy Azalea Fancy Plaid Nail Art Tutorial

Affiliate Link|Press Sample

I don’t know any girl who has watched Clueless and not coveted Cher Horowitz’s closet and computerized “Dress Me” program. I know I still do. Clearly, Iggy Azalea is with me as her video for “Fancy” is a tribute to the classic 90s film.

One of the songs of the summer, I may or may not play “Fancy” on repeat when I’m working from home. And Iggy’s recreation of Cher’s famous yellow plaid skirt and jacket inspired me to try my hand at plaid nail art.
