This past Sunday, the actor-centric SAG Awards aired and, per usual, I was live-tweeting the red carpet, waiting for my favorite film and tv show casts to win, and they did. Yay Birdman!
When Lupita Nyong’o stepped out on the carpet in this floral Elie Saab, I swear I could hear an actual gasp on Twitter. Her gorgeous gown stuck in my head and I just had to recreate it as nail art. And it just so happens that the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection was perfect for the task.

If I had a dollar for every time she said, “If I go to Hawaii, I’m not coming home,” well, I wouldn’t have to work.
This spring, OPI is celebrating the island state with a nail polish collection as colorful as the tropical paradise it represents. The twelve nail polish colors of OPI Hawaii include a variety of finishes and a rainbow of hues.

Happy Sunday Funday everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and resting up for the week ahead. I’ve been hibernating, enjoying time with the boyfriend and our DVR. ps I’m LOVING Taraji P. Henson on Empire, she’s so the millennial Joan Collins.

I picked up a couple of the Formula X Explosives in my Black Friday Sephora order and they’re still on sale for $6/ea. I’m obsessed with these matte, colorful glitter top coats. I have Chaotic, TNT and Boom and plan to pick up more. There are other Formula X lines on sale at Sephora.com as well, including the textured Celestials.
A reader recently gave me the heads up that Hautelook had Illamasqua as part of their #ManiMonday sale and I’m devastated that I missed out. Last week they had Nails Inc and tomorrow they’re offering Red Carpet Manicure. I refuse to miss out on another great deal so I signed up at Hautelook.com.
