• SpaRitual’s Fall 2010 Imagine Collection

    B_Endless Possibilities

    The world of nails has certainly made a sophisticated jump in the past few years. I remember when nail polishes only came in three or four main color families – red, pinks and nudes. God forbid you wanted to stray outside the familiar color lines since the options for bright bold shades came in colors and formulations that were more for your younger sister or niece.

    Well, thankfully, that has all changed. Companies like Essie, OPI, SpaRitual and Orly offer gorgeous rich shades in varying tones, hues and textures while maintaining high quality results and a chic finish. One of the shades that I predict will be absolutely huge this coming Fall is SpaRitual’s Endless Possibilities from their newly launched Fall 2010 Imagine Collection.

    OMG, this color is decadence in a bottle. It’s rich, dark, inky and a beautifully stunning plum shade that will work beautifully against a wide array of skin tones. I can see this color also being downright dangerous on toes for those Fall favorites – peep-toe pumps. I can’t wait for the Fall so I can wear what will most likely be my signature seasonal color!

  • Orly Goes Intergalactic with New Fall 2010 Collection – Cosmic FX



    Even though summer hasn’t even officially started, I’m already peeping out the latest beauty collections that are gearing up for their fall debut. In light of a few beauty stories that I am wrapping up for Juicy Magazine, I was absolutely astounded by this amazing nail collection from Orly.

    Cosmic FX is a colorful foray into high resolution color and shine that is sure to be hit this coming fall with anyone who loves to flash some serious color on fingers and toes. With the popularity of Minx Nails, many collections are amping up their shine and high wattage factor and pouring on the color intensity which is fabulous, especially for fall!

    Here are the colors included in the collection:

    Lunar Eclipse: Blue with Pink Purple Fx

    Galaxy Girl: Purple with Blue Green Fx

    It’s Not Rocket Science: Green with Gold Blue Fx

    Space Cadet: Green with Purple Gold FX

    Halleys Comet: Turquoise with Green Yellow Fx

    Out of this world: Purple with Pink Silver Fx

  • Ginger + Liz – Fashion Forward Fingers and Toes


    While out having coffee with my writing partner Kim, I was wonderfully reminded of this awesome new nail care line called Ginger + Liz. As someone who loves to get her nails and toes done but has regretfully yet responsibly cut back on the weekly mani/pedi due to financial contraints/economic downturn, I am all about adding a little pop of cheer in one’s life with a great nail color!


    Ginger + Liz are the debutantes at the ball with their beautiful yet bold color palettes which look good on all different sets – gliteratti to preppy and beyond. My personal faves are Chase Me- a brilliant electric, Put a Ring On It, a pink with a touch of strawberry red and The Professional, the ideal pale pink.

    Ginger + Liz Colour Collection retails for $12.00 each and can be found at Henri Bendel, Damone Roberts Brow Salon New York and Polished Beauty Lounge in Smyrna/Vinings – Atlanta.
