MLB Collection by OPI

MLB Collection by OPI

Just in time for the opening regular week of baseball is the MLB Collection by OPI.

This collection consists of seven limited edition shades, all inspired by the colors of Major League Baseball. This is actually the first ever professional sports league licensing agreement for OPI.

I am glad that MLB is recognizing that there are women out there who love the sport and who might want to wear nail polish to represent their favorite team. Oh and of course guys, feel free to wear these if you want as well! Here is a quote from Howard Smith, Senior Vice President, Licensing, Major League Baseball “Major League Baseball understands the importance of female fans in the growth and success of our sport, and so we continuously seek new opportunities to diversify our portfolio of licensed offerings to target this extensive fan base. We are beyond thrilled to partner with OPI, a premium brand in a unique category of business, to launch this new line of exclusive nail polish, giving fans yet another colorful way to show off their team pride at the start of the 2014 baseball season.”

Now, let’s PLAY BALL! Sorry, I had to.

CK One Long Wear + Shine Nail Color

CK One Long Wear + Shine Nail Color

About two years ago Calvin Klein came out with a makeup and nail polish line called CK One Color. I believe I heard they already had one awhile back in Europe, but I think this is the first line here in the USA.

I had seen the collection at Ulta a few times and was always intrigued by the slightly futuristic looking white packaging. The last time I was there I decided to purchase a couple of the nail colors to try ‘em out.

The CK One Long Wear + Shine Nail Color line comes in eleven shades. It has a wide, flat brush and a long-wear, shiny formula.

OPI Sheer Tints for Spring 2014

OPI Sheer Tints

Welcome to the world of OPI Sheer Tints for spring 2014.

This is the first time OPI has released a line of colored Top Coats. These shades are all transparent colors, which you can wear by themselves or as a top coat over other shades. They have a thick jelly formula and are super shiny.

I have to say I love the way they look in the bottle. They remind me of colored sugar or something. I also love the patterned over-wrap on the caps, and that they all have a different design. It definitely makes them stand out among the legions of other polishes in my drawers!

Cat Fur Manicure Tutorial

Cat Fur Manicure How-To

Good morning!

Today I’ve got a perfect manicure for those who might be a little, oh I don’t know, avant garde or daring. It’s what I call a Cat Fur Manicure. It’s actually not as time consuming as a lot of nail tutorials out there, which is a good thing for someone as impatient as I am. It can take a little practice though!

So what do you need for this tutorial? Not much. All you need is a base coat, some nostril scissors (or other small scissors will work) and some cat fur!
