Ever since I saw Beetlejuice as a little kid, I’ve been fascinated with the look of Tim Burton’s films. As Cameron Crowe foreshadowed in Singles when he referred to Burton, in a cameo as Brian the “Expect the Best” dating service director, as “the next Martin Scorseeeeze,” the man knows how to create a phenomenal visual experience.

He certainly achieved that in the whimsical fantasy, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, and the new director carried that vision into Alice Through the Looking Glass. It’s no wonder that HSN would tap their best designers, artisans and makers to create a collection of products based on the film. The collection includes clothing, jewelry, housewares and beauty products from brands like OPI, Urban Decay, Heidi Daus, Giuliana Rancic and Vince Camuto.

I’ve partnered with HSN to share some of my favorite pieces from the collection, paired with the OPI Alice Through the Looking Glass nail polishes.

OPI Show Us Your Tips! – Spring 2016 New Orleans

Happy Mani Monday! How many of you are dragging after staying up to watch the Oscars? Guilty! Between that and the mountain of homework I’ve been tackling (I’m taking FIVE classes this semester), this morning came way too early, so I want to brighten our day with my latest color obsession. I am swooning over OPI Show Us Your Tips! from the Spring 2016 New Orleans collection.

Did you have a favorite crayon as a kid? Was it just me? Mine was definitely Cornflower. It’s the cat of the Crayola box in that you have to work for its affection. Cornflower was probably the least pigmented crayon, so you really had to work to get that beautiful purple-tinged blue to come through on paper. In a lot of ways, Show Us Your Tips! is similar.

OPI Show Us Your Tips! is a vivid cornflower with iridescent glass-flecks (and you know how I feel about those), but it’s a little sheer. Even after three coats I can see my nail underneath when I get all up close and personal with it, but that color makes me say, “Who cares?!?” It’s one of the best colors OPI has put out and a definite must-have in my book.

I’m working on my full OPI NOLA review, but in the meantime I’ve been wearing this color out so get involved! The OPI Spring 2016 collection is available now at salons and mass retailers nationwide. You can snag it online at, and

When I first heard about the OPI Hello Kitty collection last summer I sighed and thought, “Here come ALL THE PINKS!” If you know me, and by now I assume most of you do, you know pink is not my taste. That being said, the Hello Kitty universe is very much a celebration of all things adorable in pink and primary hues. In that sense, OPI embodied the Sanrio sweetheart’s spirit yet they managed to create some unique pinks that melted this pink-hater’s heart.

Gradient Snakeskin Nail Art

Hi all! So, I’m a pretty amateur stamper, but I recently visited Andrea from Chickettes at her new salon gig, and she inspired me to dig out my plates and play. She recommended a new stamper, and I’ve been having a lot of fun. Anyway, I recently picked up a new pair of Superga’s (one of my fave sneaker brands) and they inspired today’s nail art look.
