I know once August hits we’re supposed to be all about fall color but, I’m sorry, I’m not ready to give up on summer just yet. Not as long as I can still wear flip-flops and have one last weekend on the parents’ boat in my future. That’s why I’m jazzed about the Essie Summer 2013 “Naughty Nautical” collection.

The colors and names speak to my nauti-loving heart. Makes me want to wear stripes, boat shoes and rope bracelets, like the ones from Kiel James Patrick. As a whole, this collection screams summer but there are three shades in particular that stood up and said, “love me!” And I do!

COVERGIRL Outlast Glosstinis for Summer 2013 Swatches & Review

As far as seasonal nail polish collections go, COVERGIRL has flipped the script with the launch of the COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis. Packaging their Summer 2013 color palette in a mini bottle is not only a space saver, it reduces waste.

I mean, let’s get real, outside of a handful of beloved shades, when was the last time you finished a full bottle of nail polish? I seriously can’t remember, which is what make the Glosstinis a stroke of genius.

I’ll be honest, when I first heard the term Glosstini, I envisioned a line of sheer jellies and my heart immediately sank. Don’t get me wrong, I love a jelly for layering but, in general, they aren’t flattering on my nails.
