  • I’m Currently Obsessed With…The New Black Ombre Kits

    As I am working on the October issue of Juicy Magazine on a Halloween beauty spread, I came across this super cool new nail polish brand called The New Black. I instantly fell in love with their ombre nail kits which come in several shades. I love the concept of an ombre kit. You can use the polishes in a traditional ombre application – going from light to dark all on one nail – painting the entire nail with the lightest shade and then carefully sponging the darker shades ontop until you achieve the desired ombre effect. You can also paint each nail with the corresponding five shades going from light to dark all on one hand.

    Currently you can purchase these cool kits at Sephora stores and online at Sephora.com for $22 each!

    I am loving these polishes! Stay tuned for a review!

  • I’m Currently Obsessed With Hourglass Manicure

    Just in time for summer, there’s a cool new manicure making the rounds. The hourglass manicure is a fun, chic way to show your love of pattern and design. Created by Naja, a celebrity manicurist and a new cast-member on WETV’s top reality show “LA Hair”, this new manicure has all of Hollywood’s top trendsetters buzzing. You can rock this look with two or three colors. I am loving this new manicure as its graphic and has dimension and creates a dynamic look that works well on all nail shapes and sizes!

  • I’m Currently Obsessed With…MAC Punk Couture Collection Nail Lacquer in Dark Angel

    Even though we are smack dab in the middle of spring, I cannot help but want to add some edge to my look which means swapping out the bright, vivid hues of spring for some deep, dark, goth-inspired shades. That’s where MAC’s Punk Couture Collection Nail Lacquer in Dark Angel comes in. This absolutely gorgeous goth romantic dark lilac shade is both chic and hard creating a look that is not for the faint at heart. I love the idea of pairing this sinister shade with some of the ultra lightweight feminine and all-white looks for summer.
