It’s been so long since I’ve done a Monday Manicure post, I’ve seriously been contemplating renaming these posts Nail du Jour and just calling it a day (whatever day that happens to be). But YAY! It’s Monday and I’ve got my life and my nails together enough to share. Behold, my current manicure!


Got my nails done at one of my favorite little lowkey nail spots last week, and I chose a combination of Essie Mesmerize and OPI Save Me from the Nicki Minaj collection.


Lately I’ve been obsessed with nails that look like nebulae and these colors gave me the look I was looking for. That Nicki Minaj Save Me is a fun silvery glitter with different shapes and textures of glitter, but it needs to be layered over a dark opaque color to truly pop. I love the cobalt/silver combo. Makes a great transition shade from summer bright to fall glam!

August is drawing to a close, my inbox is filling with back to school press releases, and there’s a distinctive chill in the air. Fall is drawing near and already some of the sweetest fall nail colors and collections are beginning to emerge! Let  me tell you what I’m most excited about in upcoming nail stuff!

China Glaze’s Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection


I am HERE for this collection. It’s all mystical crystal ball color shifting chrome finish everything and I want EVERY last COLOR. Especially No Plain Jane, Want My Bawdy and Deviantly Daring.

· Unpredictable – Multidimensional gorgeous green

· Rare & Radiant – Extraordinarily rich gold

· Swanky Silk – Brilliant beige with peach undertones

· No Plain Jane – Lavish lavender-pink

· Want My Bawdy – Sexy sapphire blue

· Deviantly Daring – Adventurously bold peacock teal


Lancome Fall 2012 Midnight Roses collection


You know I’m a FOOL for purple and the Midnight Roses fall collection – which is out at counters now – does NOT disappoint! Lancome has ALL the hot purple lip colors and the nailpolish is a stunner.

Vernis in Love in Infusion de Prune will run you $15, and their new Vernis In Love Top Coat Mat in Givre Magique  is a $15 top coat for a matte finish on any nail polish.


Orly Fired Up Fall 2012 collection


The Orly collection will be out in September and it’s very traditionally autumn. If you’re into wine, gold, rust and red, this is gonna be calling your name. I also ADORE their Flash Glam FX glitter collection. SO HOT.

Glow: Taupe Crème

Flare: Pale Gold Shimmer 

Flicker: Rust Duo Chrome Shimmer

Ignite: Red Crème

Smolder: Deep Wine Shimmer

Rapture: Chocolate Brown Crème 


Zoya NYFW 2012 Designer, Diva and Gloss Collections


Zoya has the NYFW 2012 nail collection thang on LOCK with three different collections out in time for New York Fashion Week! This here is the Diva collection. My personal fave – Daul – is CALLING MY NAME. “An enchanting red-toned purple with heavy purple and gold iridescent metallic sparkle that gives a dream-like effect.” I need you NOW, Daul.

Elisa (ZP632) – Crimson red metallic

Suri (ZP633) – Royal purple metallic

Song (ZP634) – Egyptian blue metallic with a subtle sparkle

Ray (ZP635) – Pine green metallic

FeiFei (ZP636) – Magic blue foil sparkle metallic

Daul (ZP637) – Magic violet foil sparkle metallic




Y’know, there’s a LOT more on QVC to shop for besides my fashion picks – QVC is NO slouch in the nail department! You can get brands like butter LONDON, Sephora by OPI, and Pro Strong. I’m personally most obsessed  with Mally Beauty’s at home gel manicure sets – I’ve been all the way turned out by no-chip manicures and the prospect of doing my own at home is TEMPTING. It’s $165 on Mally’s official site.

I miss wearing nail polish so much (can't wear it because of work, booo!!). I like those China Glaze polishes so I may buy a couple if I see them in stores. That Lancome shade and bottle look gorgeous but I don't see myself spending that much for something I can't wear often.

Your mani is gorgeous. I recently purchased one of the new fall colors by OPI. It's a rich purple color(don't remember the name). Now I have to go find the Nicki Minaj collection. I read your blog several times a week; you always inspire me to try something new. Because of your blog, Ulta's and I have a closer relationship. They see me much more often now. You are really good at what you do. Thanks for this blog.

Maybe they could balance it out by including some gameplay available ONLY to vocals players...

you think that with blizzard eating at least a thousand a month that they' crank out more content quicker. Yes I know that running servers is expensive, however I doubt that blizzard isn't consuming at least 30% with the sub fees as accurate profit. Great game though I'd admit and while I miss playing it in my friends, I also missed all of 2007.

naturally like your web-site however you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to tell the reality however I'll surely come again again.

Maintenant vous n'avez plus d'excuse pour ne rien faire le dimanche. Le dimanche est parfois un jours ennuyeux et fastidieux, c'est aussi, pour les chrétiens. Mais de nos jours quand on estpas chrétien ce jours peut paraître inutile Nous le passons tous dans notre lit, mais ce pourquoi gâcher cette journée alors que nous avons plein de temps devant nous. Il est parfois difficile de trouver quoi faire le dimanche. C'est pour cela que nous avons fini un blog regroupant toute les activités du dimanche dans votre village. Fini les dimanche long et triste devant la télé. Maintenant vous n'avez plus d'excuse pour restez au lit le dimanche.
