If you were wondering what’s next from Color Club, I’ve got your answer. It’s the Rebel Debutante collection for Spring. From the looks of it, Color Club is embracing not only the nude and mushroom-y hues but they’re jazzing it up with a couple brights and the color du jour, mint green. With NINE creamy shades to choose from, there’s a little something for everyone.

I’ve been reading your comments about the glitters from the OPI Alice In Wonderland collection and see that quite a few of you have been experiencing major chipping issues. I thought I would share the results of my unintentional wear test with Mad As A Hatter.
You see I wore MAAH for NYE and because I can be extremely lazy AND I hate removing glitters (the soak off process is arduous) I ended up leaving the polish on my right (non-photographed) hand for NINE DAYS. Yes, I walked around for almost a week with a blinged out right hand and random skittles on the left. No, I really don’t care about the stares I undoubtedly received. Don’t judge!
Anywhoodle, when I finally went to remove MAAH, I thought I should document how well it lasted on me. Which is why your comments about chipping are so surprising. I used one coat of Nubar Foundation Base Coat, 3 layers of MAAH and 2 coats of Olan Labs Quick & Slick Top Coat. Now I did get a chip on my left thumb on NYE but that was a Wii related accident. You have to admit, for nine days, the polish looks pretty good.
That makes me curious… those of you that have experienced chipping and poor wear from your Alice in Wonderland glitters, what products are you using and how many layers of each? Remember, the thicker the coats and the more coats you use, the more prone you are to chipping. So my first suggestion, not knowing your technique, is to apply thin coats of everything and see if that helps.
The palette for the Spring 2010 Chanel collection, Les Impressions de Chanel, is all about chic, wearable neutrals. Creative Director Peter Philips wanted to honor Coco Chanel’s legacy of creating classic, timeless pieces with a wardrobe of color that never goes out of style.
Included in the collection are three new Le Vernis nail lacquers including Particulière, Tendresse and Inattendu. You may recall the frenzy that erupted when Particulière was spotted on the Chanel Spring 2010 runway. We all wondered, is it a khaki, grey, mushroom, dusty purple, mauve? Would it just end up being a You Don’t Know Jacques knockoff? See for yourself after the jump!
The latest buzz from the world of Illamasqua is about their Pastel Nail Varnishes launching near the end of February.

Though here’s the deal Fanatics. As of now, the colors are set to launch in UK stores and on the Illamasqua website. If you want to see them make their way to Sephora stores and Sephora.com they need to hear it. So tell me in the comments… Would you buy these colors if there were available in the US?
