OPI Coca-Cola 2015 – Icons of Happiness

Even though I cut out pop (yes, I say pop because, Ohio) from my diet over 20 years ago, I’m a die-hard Coca-Cola fan. I used to annoy servers during high school and college by ordering Cherry Cokes, made with grenadine and a cherry, natch. And I still I treat myself to a one when we go to the movies. Our fave movie theater, an AMC with recliners and assigned seats, has a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine that I love playing with to discover new flavor combinations. I’m currently into Vanilla Barq’s.

This year, the Coca-Cola bottle is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. The iconic bottle, given its distinctive curves by The Root Glass Company in Terra Haute, Indiana, is recognizable worldwide. To honor the green-tinted beauty, OPI has paired up once again to release two signature colors. The OPI Coca-Cola 2015 Icons of Happiness collection includes a re-release of some of last year’s shades along with the Two to Celebrate duo.

Chanel Fraicheur Swatches, Review and Comparisons

I totally squealed, to the point of scaring my furry co-worker (aka my kitty Ren), when I spotted a new minty green nail polish from CHANEL on Instagram. CHANEL Fraicheur kept popping up on some Russian and Asian accounts, but I couldn’t understand the captions, and had to know more. I proceeded to stalk until it was finally available for sale and then I pounced. I even paid for shipping, you guys, because I had to have it.

Now, I love, love, love my bottle of Chanel Jade. I mean, I hoard my precious, use it sparingly, keep it capped tight, and regret not having a back-up, so I hoped Fraicheur would quell that need. The million dollar question is, is it a Jade dupe?

Mani Monday – Deborah Lippmann Rehab

This #ManiMonday is part Throwback Thursday, part plea. You see, during last night’s Nail Glossip chat we talked jelly nail polish, and no convo about jellies would be complete without mentioning Deborah Lippmann Rehab. As I wished out loud for Rehab’s resurrection, Deborah Lippmann answered my call with this tweet.  So, I’m here not only to celebrate Rehab’s beauty, but to get your support in convincing Lippmann’s hubby to bring it back to life.

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.
