What say we get into MAC Archie’s Girls Veronica collection now? This might appeal to those who love cool-toned purples and pinks, as opposed to the peachy/coral type shades of Betty. Oh and there is a must-have red lipstick in here also…
Deborah Lippmann and HBO have partnered together for a limited edition collection based on the HBO series GIRLS.
Each one of these shades is inspired by one of the four girls on the show, and I have to say, the colors match the characters pretty perfectly! I caught up on season 1 a couple months ago and am now watching season 2. Great show!
Here is some background on the characters in case you don’t watch:
- Marnie – She’s the more responsible and serious of the four. She worked in an art gallery so a soft, conservative shade fits well.
- Shoshanna – She’s a fast-talking, kooky character. Innocent and a bit of a late bloomer so a shimmery purple suits her.
- Hannah – The star of the show (written by and played by Lena Dunham) is a struggling writer who can be moody and quirky, but very loyal (ish). The non-so-common green suits her really well.
- Jessa – She is a bohemian Brit. Very free, very spiritual in a strange way. This burgundy red creme is a great one for Jessa.
OPI Germany is the latest and greatest collection from OPI for fall 2012.
Germany features twelve new shades, all either cremes or shimmers. Quite a few of these turned out to be must-haves for me, which I didn’t really expect. If you love glowing, lit-from-within shimmery metallics, I think you will want some of these…
Glitter Gal Australia has some new nail polishes out with cool new finishes. These polishes can be worn alone or over other colors to add dimension and different depths of color.
Shade Shifters – These come in either a smooth or glittery finish.
Opals – Light and soft on their own, or layer over a dark color for super impact.
Transitions – Very sheer worn alone or wear over other colors for a cool effect.
There are a few new shades in each of these categories, and I’ve got a few of them for ya now!
Transitions Soft Blue
Essie Resort is a new 4 piece collection created so that you could “discover your inner Hollywood starlet.”
Essie Weingarten wanted to inspire women to bring out their inner glamour and get you to come out and play with these fun shades. This collection was inspired by Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly.
The formula, as with the vast majority of Essie polishes, was spot on. Not too thick or thin. Not too sheer, and all perfect in 2-3 coats.
