Obsessed

Just in time for summer, OPI will be launching a collection of six full-size (yes, full-size!) neon lacquers, along with Put a Coat On!, a special white base coat that is meant to boost neon colour.

If you recall my posts on last summer’s Neon Minis (see them here and here!), you will remember just how hot the little Neon Lacquers were. OPI fans wanted more, and unfortunately, last summer’s offering only came in a mini size. Fast forward to now, and OPI is offering both the full size collection of neons, as well as a mini set of all six lacquers (does not include the special white base coat).

Today I bring you a quick sneak peek at the six shades, as well as… well, let’s just inspiration struck.

I started with a base of Put a Coat On!, an opaque white polish meant to be worn under these neon lacquers to help make them pop. I used only one generous coat which actually applied quite evenly, with minimal streaking (which is what white polishes are notorious for, unfortunately), and let that dry. Once it dried, I created some 80’s pop-art nails, slightly reminiscent of my abstract nail art seen here:

And of course, a macro, because I can’t help but love macros!

What do you think of today’s neon nail art? Are you like me, totally obsessed with neon shades for summer?

In 1963, Dior created an exceptionally popular treatment: Crème Abricot. This incredibly rich formula was capable of making nails stronger and encouraging their growth through a burst of nutrition and regeneration. Creators of the Couture manicure believed that beautiful nails were the essential finishing touch to a look.

Over the years, the Crème Abricot design has become iconic: its little round pot and beaded border is reminiscent of a neo-classical pillbox. A desirable and portable object to slip into your handbag for any occasion. The success of this star formula has never faltered and 50 years later it remains a must-have product.

Today, Crème Abricot is part of a complete manicure range, starting with Huile Abricot, an extremely refined treatment oil for daily use.

Dior_HuileApricot_Serum

A deeply nourishing and hydrating treatment for cuticles, it also helps strengthen nails:

Its unique formula protects and hardens keratin within the nails through a synergy of active oils. Firstly, argan oil, concentrated in essential fatty acids and anti-oxidant, vitamin E; camellia oil, reputed for its protective properties; and finally, apricot oil, rich in vitamins and minerals, indispensable for strong nails.

I like to keep Huile Abricot in my purse for convenience (love the simple tube and applicator!) – which was especially nice through our never-ending winter this year, or apply a drop to each nail before bed… If you follow my blog, you’ll know how much I swear by regular massaging of cuticles with some cuticle oil. Massaging your cuticles before bed really helps absorb the nutritive oil, and encourages nail growth, and is so easy to do! If you just do one thing to take care of your nails, this would be an amazing product to keep on your nightstand or in your purse for daily use.

DiorVernis_essentials

Going hand-in-hand with the amazing Crème Abricot or Huile Abricot is Dior’s Base Coat Abricot. A nourishing, smoothing and hardening base coat, it transforms the surface of the nail, preparing it for nail polish application and long lasting wear. With an ever-so-subtle beige tint in the bottle, it applies clear, but leaves behind a clean and shiny finish on nails – the perfect unpolished manicure! The first time I applied Base Coat Abricot, I actually skipped the polish, it looked so clean and well… pretty!

Dior_Base_Abricot

Finishing up the Dior manicure is Dior Gel Coat, a gel-finish top coat with an extremely high-gloss finish to wrap and seal the polish. Smoothed over with a brilliant lacquered effect, Dior Gel Coat makes nails appear stronger and thicker with its gel finish, yet dries quickly. While not an actual quick-dry top coat, it dries to the touch within five or so minutes – that’s quick drying to me!   And when you are ready to change colours, Dior’s Gel Coat is simple to take off: just use regular nail polish remover – no pain, no scrubbing.

 

Finally, a little bit of luxe in a small bottle: Dissolvant Abricot, The Treatment Remover:

Described as an acetone-free solution ensures fast and efficient nail polish removal with care for your nails. Rich in treatment ingredients known to nourish, hydrate and strengthen, it instantly revives whiteness and shine.

 

All Dior manicure essential products are available at Dior counters.

Happy weekend and Happy Easter to those of you celebrating!

Today I have a quick pastel mani that is perfect for Easter… or just spring. I love pastels and my quest for the perfect yellow once led me to franken my very own pastel yellow that, if I say so myself, actually turned out quite pretty. And similar to today’s gem from Morgan Taylor: Ahead of the Game. A gorgeous pastel yellow with the subtlest hint of shimmer, Ahead of the Game caught my eye a few times and I somehow managed to walk away… not yesterday! It does apply a little sheer on the first coat, but with a generous second coat, leaves behind a perfect, streak-free finish:

MorganTaylor_Ahead_of_the_Game

Ahead of the Game looked to be the perfect blank canvas, so I decided to make it into an Easter mani by adding some angled French tips with OPI’s Alpine Snow, and an accent of Zoya’s Cole from their Spring Awaken Collection, a beautiful pastel peach-orange cream:

MorganTaylor_ZoyaEaster_mani

Simple, yet elegant, and easy to do with some striping tape or simple tape cut out into lengths or little triangles.

If you are celebrating today, Happy Easter and hope everyone enjoys this beautiful Sunday with their loved ones, furry and human!

OPI Releases Six New Neon Nail Lacquers with
Accompanying White Base Coat to Boost Bright Color

OPI Adds Its First Full-Size Neon Shades to Permanent Collection

OPI announces the launch of six new neon nail lacquers, the brand’s first full-size neon shades, along with Put a Coat On! – a special white base coat that instantly boosts neon color. Neons by OPI arrives just in time for summer, with electric hues in shades of lemon-lime, tangerine, hot pink, coral, lime and purple.

“With hands and feet constantly on display during warmer months, wearing nail lacquer is a must,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “I am a big fan of bright colors for summer, and Neons by OPI delivers a bold look that pairs perfectly with sun-kissed skin. To really make the neon shades pop, I recommend using Put a Coat On!, a new white base coat developed to be worn with bright lacquer hues to further enhance color.

“These six shades are the first full-size neons OPI has ever released,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With large demand for new bright lacquers, this collection is a welcome addition to OPI’s permanent line.”

Neons by OPI includes:

Neons by OPI will also be available in GelColor, marking the launch of OPI’s first neon gel shades. GelColor is a professional salon service that offers a high-shine, 100% gel finish that lasts for weeks with a 30 second LED cure.

“If you’re planning a summer vacation, try a GelColor manicure or pedicure,” said Weiss-Fischmann. “Not only will your neon nails look fabulous, they’ll remain chip-free and flawless while you’re having fun in the sun.”

Neons by OPI will be available in both nail lacquer and GelColor (for professionals only) formulas beginning May 2014. Nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application and will retail for $10.95 at professional salons and spas across Canada.

GelColor is an in-salon, professional service only. Prices depend on the salon and range from $28 – $38 for a manicure and $35 – $45 for a pedicure.

With last summer’s Neon Minis (see them here and here!), there was a resounding call for full-size neons, and I’m so happy OPI listened!  Which shade are you most excited about?

Each time that A-England’s creator teases us with hints of a new collection, Adina’s eager fans wait with baited breath for what will be unveiled. The incredible formulas, the colours, the historic inspirations behind each collection…  Many of us have become devotees of the brand! And today I have for you the gorgeous Ballerina collection. (For inspiration details, head over to Ommorphia’s launch post.)

A-England’s Ballerina is a collection of four beautiful, delicate holographic polishes in whisper-soft colours. The collection immediately reminded me of the tulle on dancers’ skirts… how perfect!

aengland_Ballerina_Coll

The first shade, and probably my favourite of the four (though it’s nearly impossible to pick a favourite) is Fonteyn. Fonteyn is a lavender-tinged silver holo with a formula so perfect, so divine, that it was a one-coater. It applied with buttery perfection, fully opaque on the first coat, and drying quickly to an incredible shine. (If you own any A-Englands, you’ll know that this brand is renowned for its high-shine finish!) Here is Fonteyn without top coat:

aengland_Ba_FonteynFull sun

aengland_Ba_Fonteyn2In the shade

 

Dancing with Nureyev is blue-purple holographic with a metallic finish that almost changes colour depending on the light. It is a little more indigo in some light, then a little more purple, but always demure.

I paired Fonteyn with Dancing with Nureyev for a subtle holo gradient:

aengland_Ba_Fonteyn_Nureyev_grdt

And two coats of the gorgeous Dancing with Nureyev, no top coat:

aengland_Ba_NureyevFull sun

aengland_Ba_Nureyev2In the shade

I had to include a macro of Dancing with Nureyev because it is so beautiful:

aengland_Ba_Nureyev_macro

Encore Margot is described as an “icy blue prismatic hue,” a pale-silver holographic that dries to a cool dove grey shade. The holo effect on Encore Margot appears a little softer than that of Fonteyn or Dancing with Nureyev, but the effect is breathtaking. Another amazing formula, a little more fluid than Fonteyn, requiring two easy coats. Below, without top coat:

aengland_Ba_EncoreMargotFull sun

aengland_Ba_EncoreMargot2In the Shade

 

Finally, Her Rose Adagio, a delicate soft pink holo described as “faded roses in a silver prismatic base, as romantic as it is ‘en pointe’.” Possessing a similar soft holo and formula like Encore Margot, I used two coats for the photos below:

aengland_Ba_HerRoseAdagioFull sun

aengland_Ba_HerRoseAdagio2In the shade

 

What always stands out for me is A-England’s incredible glossy finish, and its beauty whether in sunlight or in the shade. These colours are so demure and perfect, so aptly named that it is impossible not to fall in love…

 

A-England is available directly from their website for those in the UK, or from several stockists this side of the pond (check out Where to buy), including Nail Polish Canada (with free shipping within Canada!). Don’t forget to follow A-England on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and Nail Polish Canada on Facebook and Twitter!

Earlier this year Nicole by OPI launched a new celebrity collaboration of 14 new lacquers inspired by mega-star country singer Carrie Underwood, and what a beautiful collaboration! Running the gamut from nudes to pinks to vamps… and a few sparklers and textures thrown in for good measure. There truly is something for everyone here!

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_coll2

Let’s look at the gorgeous lacquers! (Just a note that I did not receive Carrie’s namesake polish, Carrie’d Away, a beautiful gold, so I have only 13 of the 14 lacquers for you.) All polishes are swatched over Nicole by OPI’s new 3-in-1 base/top coat and strengthener.

One of the immediate standouts for me was the soft, pale rose-petal-pink Love My Pups. This one reminds me of some of my favourite OPI crellies (cream jellies) like Bubble Bath and Funny Bunny – sheer at first but buildable and totally office-and-also-wedding-appropriate! Here are two coats:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_LoveMyPups

Look how gorgeous Love my Pups is with a hint of Party Bus, a beautiful silver holographic glitter polish with macro glitter and…  flower glitters! I didn’t know if I would like this glitter by looking at the bottle, but it totally blew me away once I had it on!! It’s so fun!! And summery, and really like a Party Bus, no?

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_LoveMyPups_PartyBus

Look at the macro… sigh:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_LoveMyPups_PartyBusMacro

Southern Charm is a gorgeous peach-leaning tan creme. Another beauty! This colour is slightly darker/more peach than nude on me, but this is the kind of nude lipgloss I usually fawn over, so no surprise, another love here! Below, 2 coats:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_SouthernCharm

I paired Southern Charm with Lips are Dripping Honey, a gold holographic glitter bomb in a clear base. This one is filled with golden hex and micro glitter, making it sparkle no matter how much or how little of it you use. It’s like a gold version of Party Bus, minus the flower shapes. Doesn’t it make a gorgeous combo with Southern Charm?

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_SouthernCharm_Lips

And of course, a macro for my macro-lovers:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_SouthernCharm_LipsMacro

I love the holo glitters Nicole by OPI used in this collection!

Sweet Daisy is a beautiful salmon pink creme. I loved Nicole by OPI’s description “southern peach blossom” which I could almost imagine. In some lights it leans a bit more peach, and had a crelly quality as well. Another beauty! Here are two shiny coats:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_SweetDaisy

A little bit brighter is Color Me Country, another crelly formula polish in a hot, medium-pink. It’s totally a hot summer shade and will sizzle with a little summer sun and tan! Here are two easy coats:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_ColorMeCountry

A sugary pink confection, I loved how Carnival Cotton Candy looked with Goodbye Shoes, used as an accent on my ring finger. Goodbye Shoes is a dustry grey-green, very different, but gorgeous. I usually don’t love green polishes but the grey-base totally called out to me! Both below at two coats:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_Carnival_Cotton_Goodbye

Some Hearts is a polish I have already used a few times in a couple of recent nail art manis (here and with Color Me Country here). A beautiful bright coral, this is another sizzling beauty for summer! It looked really bright on me and I love it! Look at that shine! Again, two coats:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_SomeHearts

I have worn the next shade so many times that I’ve lost count. You have to know how hard it is for me to wear the same polish over and over again, given how many new or unworn polishes I have at any given time… not to mention the swatching that I do… but somehow, American as Apple Pie, this stunning red creme, just keeps calling to me! If you only purchase one colour from this collection, get this – sure to become a classic red in your stash. Amazingly easy to apply, self-levelling, quick drying. Two coats, no top coat and this shine!:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_AmericanAsApl

Moving on to the two vamps in this collection, another namesake polish, this one a play on her married name, Fisher Queen is a deep eggplant with a beautiful hidden shimmer. In the sun, as in below, it is very vibrant and the shimmer dances (click the pic to see full size), while in the shade, it is a mysterious vamp. Another easy application, two coats below:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_Fisher_Queen

Backstage Pass is a burnished purple, appearing brown in the shade, but with a hidden copper shimmer in the sun. If you click the picture, you can see some of the sparkle. Application was great with a gorgeous shine to the finish. Two coats:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_BackstagePass

Finally, the only textured polish in this collection is Sing You Like a Bee, a white frost with tons of golden shimmer. You can see the textured finish best on my pinky. This was a breeze to apply if you let the coats dry in between, and you have to apply it lightly as the formula was a bit thick. I used two coats below:

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_SingYouLikeaBee

The gold shimmer is actually more of a gold flake if you look at the macro shot below. The iridescence of this polish is divine. It actually looks angelic!

NicolebyOPI_Carrie_SingYouLikeaBee_macro

Which of these shades is your favourite?

Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality. This limited edition collection will be in newly designed bottles featuring the NEW Nicole logo. These shades are available (in Canada) at Shoppers Drug Mart, Target Canada, Walmart Canada, Jean Coutu, London Drug, and Loblaws.

I was so excited about OPI’s Brazil Collection that launched for Spring/Summer this year… those bright corals, pinks, red… but when I saw the nude selection of this collection… *thud*
If you are a neutral palette lover like me, you will literally want to stop reading, grab your wallet, and run to the nearest OPI salon. Seriously.

This collection immediately struck me as a home run, just like last year’s Euro Centrale collection. Ranging from brights to mocha to a deep green, there is something for every polish lover, and FIVE of the collection’s 12 shades are neutrals. That’s almost HALF the collection in neutral shades, with 3 of them being shades of nude. I am totally in love!

I decided to use the four creme earthy tones in an ombré manicure because they looked so beautiful together. All four of these cremes have a similar, warm-pink-toned base, making them not only gorgeous, but perfect complements to one another! And the formula? Perfection!!! No streaking, not even on the lightest shade Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around. Drytime was amazing too, even pre-topcoat.

OPI_Brazil_Nudes_btl

My ombré manicure consisted of the lightest shade in this collection, and about to become another nude favourite OPI of mine (next to My Vampire is Buff), Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around; Taupe-less Beach, a gorgeous greyed taupe a few shades darker than the lightest; I São Paulo Over There, yet a few more shades darker than the previous colour and a mid-toned greyed mocha; and finally, OPI Scores a Goal, a rich chocolate creme (L to R in all pictures).

At the beginning of the year, Zoya launched a beautiful set of nudes, ranging in shade from ivory to a chocolate milk shade in their Naturel Collection. What’s there not to love! Six new full-coverage shades of complementary neutrals with a pink undertone so they can be worn alone or together for slight tonal accents.

Zoya_Naturel_btls

The lightest shade in the collection is Chantal, described as a French Vanilla creme by Zoya. A perfect description! Often shades this light or white-based can be a bit streaky, but Chantal did not streak and needed only two coats for great coverage. You could add a third coat if you felt compelled, but I loved it at two. Below it is with only base coat and 2 coats of Chantal – no top coat, and look at that shine!

Zoya_naturel_ChantalChantal leaned a bit lighter than nude due to my olive complexion, but as you can see, still extremely flattering. It has a slight peach undertone and I feel that it would suit almost any complexion.

Seeing how well the shades coordinate, I tipped Chantal with the darkest shade for a gorgeous contrast – Chantal with a French tip of Normani:

Zoya_Naturel_Chantal_Normani

A slight step up from Chantal is Taylor, described as a light toffee creme shade. I found Taylor to be more of a yellow-based nude. This one reminded me of a yummy café au lait… and again, I loved it on me. It may not be as versatile to pinkish skintones as Chantal though. Again, two coats were perfect but you could easily apply three thin coats. Below, 2 coats, no top coat:

Zoya_naturel_Taylor

One of the mid-tone shades is Rue, described as a Boudoir Blush Cream. Rue reminded me of a soft rose satin camisole… very romantic, very pretty, and a colour for almost any skintone. Application was a breeze with 2 coats and no top coat:

Zoya_Naturel_Rue

Just a touch darker is Brigitte, described as a Bombshell Mauve Cream (how sexy is that description!). Another beauty and a pink-y mauve. Two coats paired with a French tip of Chantal below (look at that shine):

Zoya_Naturel_Brigitte_ChantalI love these two together!

Odette jumps quite a few tones to a dusty purplish shade, described as a Sultry Maroon Cream. This formula was classic Zoya – thicker than the lighter shades of this collection, self-levelling, beautiful and drying to an incredible shine! Two coats below:

Zoya_Naturel_Odette

Odette strikes me as dustier version of OPI’s I’m Feeling Sashy, non?

OPI_MU_ImFeelingSashy2

And finally, we have Normani, a Sable Mauve Cream (I really love these Zoya descriptions!), a cool, dusty, greyed-mocha with a mauve undertone. I absolutely love Normani! Formula-wise it was exactly like Odette. Two coats below, no top coat, and look at that crazy shine:

Zoya_naturel_Normani

I think it’s pretty clear how I feel about this collection… totally obsessed and loving every shade! Not only are these colours on-trend and gorgeous, but they are highly office-appropriate, even when paired in soft nail art like the French manicures I’ve shown. And Zoya’s formula is divine. I think these will be added to my go-to Zoya stash that includes Natty, Sailor, Rockie, Josie… the list goes on…

Find the Zoya Naturel Nail Polish Collection and over 300 stunning BIG5FREE* Zoya colors on www.zoya.com. Each and every color has a name as unique as the women who inspired it.

*Formula is completely free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene and camphor.

Nail Colour that Rocks!

Nicole by OPI Announces NEW Limited Edition Roughles Textured Nail Lacquers

This March, Nicole by OPI launches Roughles (“ruffles”) — 4 new textured nail lacquers featuring speckled, pastel shades of purple, pink, turquoise and yellow. When the lacquer dries, Roughles lacquers reveal a unique pebbled finish. Roughles should be applied without a top coat to achieve a matte effect.

“Chic pastels were a major trend throughout the runway collections at spring/summer 2014 shows and textured, matte nails are going to be one of the hottest looks this spring,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Wearing these feminine shades on fingers and toes is a refreshing take on this trend. Pair these lacquers with candy colored fabrics and flirty floral prints to really make a statement!”

Roughles shades include:

NI452_G_ImStuccoOnYouI’m Stucco on You

Yesterday I announced that I was participating in a new Nicole by OPI challenge that runs until February 25th (please head to twitter to tweet or retweet to help me win!), and today I wanted to share some more details about the nail art. 🙂

The challenge was to come up with a manicure to complement any of Carrie Underwood’s amazing songs using only shades from her new Nicole by OPI collection.
I chose the song “Before he Cheats.” Colours used (all from the Carrie Underwood for Nicole by OPI collection): Love My Pups, Carnival Cotton Candy, Some Hearts and American as Apple Pie, as well as the new 3-in-1 as my base/top coat:

NOPI_Carrie_contest_btls

Here is the mani before I added the nail art, with the beautiful pale nude Love My Pups on my index and ring (2 coats), red beauty American as Apple Pie on my middle, and deep pink crelly Some Hearts on my pinky:

NOPI_Carrie_contest_aAren’t the colours beautiful?

And the final look once I added striping tape and the topping colours (middle and pinky fingers done freehand, and index is a sponge gradient of American as Apple Pie and Carnival Cotton Candy):
