Orly Spring 2016 “Melrose” collection

During a recent #NailGlossip we discussed which upcoming collections we are excited for in 2016, and someone mentioned Orly Melrose and I was all, “O RLY?” A quick search for promo images had me looking forward to it as well. I mean, they had me at holo… glitter. What surprised me is that the colors are even more bold and saturated than the bottle shade implies. Check it!

OPI Hello Kitty nail polish collection

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.

Rouge Louboutin and Chanel Lame Rouge Noir

Who else was hating life this morning? After a nice long holiday break, I didn’t want to get up AT ALL this morning. I totally slept through my alarm. My body just wasn’t having it. I had such a lovely time at home with the boyfriend, who also took the last two weeks off. We spent Christmas with my parents, baked cookies, hosted a NYE party, did some work around the house, and binge-watched Mozart in the Jungle, Man in the High Castle, Red Oaks, Master of None, and caught up on AHS: Hotel (it’s FINALLY getting good).

My nails were pretty bare the last week since we cleaned and de-cluttered the house (I’m reading the KonMari method book) and ended up breaking/chipping a few nails. I didn’t even have polish on for NYE! If I did, it would have been today’s manicure, one of my Christmas gifts from the boyfriend and a treat to myself. He remembered me saying how I could never justify the INSANE price of Rouge Louboutin, even though I wanted it as a collectible, so I was happily surprised when it showed up under the tree.

Based on the “sold out” signs I’m seeing on Amazon.com, Beauty.com and essie.com, the Retro Revival version of essie Starry Starry Night has caused quite a craze. If you weren’t one of the lucky ones to score a pre-sale bottle, don’t fret. The collection isn’t on shelves yet, so there’s still a chance to snag one. Who knows, maybe it will pop up at Nordstrom.com. In the meantime, for those of you who want to see how the new version compares to the original, I’ve got you covered!

***Sound the alarm!*** Starry Starry Night is now available on ULTA.com.
