Best Frizz Fighters

I make no apologies for how much I love my hair and that I take pride in maintaining its appearance. I mean, I have bins and bins of products taking over my linen closet. Though frizz is the bane of my hair’s existence. Having coarse, super thick, crazy wavy hair means it sucks up any moisture it can find, so when I wake up and can taste the humidity in the air, it’s game on.

I don’t remember ever having to deal with frizz as a kid, but at some point everything changed, and I spent my 20s experimenting with different cocktails of products. So over the years, I have tried every frizz control product I could get my hands on to combat those awful little hairs from popping up, and I’m sharing my holy grail items below.

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?

#Maybelline100 Color Show Nail Colors

Maybelline is celebrating 100 years of helping make women look like they are “Born with It” with a limited-edition collection in collectible packaging. I’ve been a Maybelline fan from the moment Cherry Cola Kissing Potion hit my lips, so when I spotted a Queen of New York display, I got a little giddy. The LE packaging immediately drew me in with its colorful screening, and the two Color Show nail lacquers came right home with me.

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.
