OPI Coca-Cola 2015 – Icons of Happiness

Even though I cut out pop (yes, I say pop because, Ohio) from my diet over 20 years ago, I’m a die-hard Coca-Cola fan. I used to annoy servers during high school and college by ordering Cherry Cokes, made with grenadine and a cherry, natch. And I still I treat myself to a one when we go to the movies. Our fave movie theater, an AMC with recliners and assigned seats, has a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine that I love playing with to discover new flavor combinations. I’m currently into Vanilla Barq’s.

This year, the Coca-Cola bottle is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. The iconic bottle, given its distinctive curves by The Root Glass Company in Terra Haute, Indiana, is recognizable worldwide. To honor the green-tinted beauty, OPI has paired up once again to release two signature colors. The OPI Coca-Cola 2015 Icons of Happiness collection includes a re-release of some of last year’s shades along with the Two to Celebrate duo.

Chanel Fraicheur Swatches, Review and Comparisons

I totally squealed, to the point of scaring my furry co-worker (aka my kitty Ren), when I spotted a new minty green nail polish from CHANEL on Instagram. CHANEL Fraicheur kept popping up on some Russian and Asian accounts, but I couldn’t understand the captions, and had to know more. I proceeded to stalk Chanel.com until it was finally available for sale and then I pounced. I even paid for shipping, you guys, because I had to have it.

Now, I love, love, love my bottle of Chanel Jade. I mean, I hoard my precious, use it sparingly, keep it capped tight, and regret not having a back-up, so I hoped Fraicheur would quell that need. The million dollar question is, is it a Jade dupe?

OPI Color Paints Nail Art

I’ve been having so much fun playing with the new OPI Color Paints (link full review) that I haven’t wanted to wear anything else on my nails. And I haven’t! As a reminder, Color Paints are sheer, blendable nail color that are built for layering and nail art. Now, even if you feel too busy to apply anything beyond a solid color (me most days), they’re a lot like Pringles; once you pop, you can’t stop. Swear!

Today, I have a three nail art ideas for you that range from easy to advanced. I even tackled my old nemesis, the dreaded water marble. Though thanks to my new favorite nail art tool, I am finally over my aversion to water marbling. Check it all out below!

Nail Polish Flip Flops – My New Favorite Thing

Havaianas Slim Cool Nail Polish Flip Flops via @alllacqueredup

Havaianas Nail Polish & Lipstick Flip Flops

Okay, how freakin cute are these Havaianas Flip Flops? I spotted them on the Ricky’s NYC Instagram a few weeks ago, and thanks to a Twitter follower, I was able to pick up a pair at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Thanks to a $5 off coupon, I snagged them for $23.

A little pricey for a couple pieces of rubber, I know, but Havaianas are really well made. These are no $5 Old Navy flip flops that fall apart after one summer. I have five pairs of Havaianas, and the ones I wear most often are 4 years old and going strong. Plus, they’re purple and covered in NAIL POLISH & LIPSTICK!! They were totally made for me and like the BEST pedicure shoes ever, am I right?

Pick up your own pair of Havaianas Slim Cool Flip Flops in yellow or purple at Havaianas.com, LordandTaylor.com, RickysNYC.com and Zappos.com. They retail for $28/ea.

What do you think? Are they worth the splurge? Do you plan to get a pair?

a-england Rossetti’s Goddess review

There’s no better time to enjoy holographic and duo-chrome shimmer than summer. The bright sunlight electrifies the prismatic shimmer for an eye-catching effect. The a-england Rossetti’s Goddess collection, inspired by Rossetti’s painting of the Roman goddess, Proserpine, is a buffet of summer-fun sparkle.
