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.

Last-Minute Beauty Gifts

I’m a notorious last-minute shopper. I’ve been known to be out shopping while the boyfriend is at my parent’s house cooking Christmas Eve dinner. Procrastination holiday shopping is in my DNA. Considering the number of people I see scrambling through stores this week, I know I’m not alone.

Department stores are my one-stop salvation, especially JCPenneys with in-store Sephoras. We have a few in the Cleveland area and I stopped by the North Olmsted store after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens (so amazing!) to grab a few gifts for my beauty-loving friends, and a treat for myself, of course! With styles so bright and gifts so right, JCPenney is where giving begins this holiday season.

MitoQ Serum

MitoQ Serum

Confession, I did not take great care of my skin in my 20s. All right, twist my arm, not even into my early 30s. I know that makes me a bad beauty girl, but it’s the truth. So, now I find myself scrambling to undo all the damage tanning beds (I KNOW!), a lack of proper sunscreen/anti-aging products, and improper nutrition have had on my skin. I’m sure I’m not alone. Tell me I’m not alone!

That has led me down a path of trying any and every anti-aging product I can get my hands on to make a dent in the wrinkles popping up on my face and to prevent any further damage. Now, the path has led me to MitoQ serum, which I have been testing for the past five weeks.

essie Retro Revival 35th Anniversary Collection

Amazing news, you guys! So good, I am giddy every time I think about it being true.

Let’s back up a sec. A few weeks ago I caught wind of essie releasing a collection to celebrate the iconic brand’s 35th Anniversary, Retro Revival. At the time, five past shades were named for resurrection. Then, during our last #NailGlossip chat (next one is this Sunday), Kellie Gonzo shared the rumor that Starry Starry Night(!!!) was the sixth mystery shade. I mean, could it really be true? That the sought-after shade was making a comeback? Well, late last week essie confirmed its revival to much fanfare.

If you aren’t familiar, keep reading to see why essie Starry Starry Night’s return has nail fanatics, worldwide, in a frenzy!
