OPI teaches us some geography lessons here. In recent times only we’ve seen San Francisco collection, we’ve seen Venice collection and here we go with New Orleans collection. Ok. New Orleans is artsy, free spirited and jazzy. All good things, so I’m interested to see what OPI has in stock for us this spring. There are twelve shades. Wow 🙂 Before we get to the shades though, let me say that all twelve are great […]

New fashion? I’m all for new fashion and styles. It doesn’t mean we have to give up on all the classic. We don’t. There’s a reason why it’s classic. Because it works. It looks good. It’s proven. What being for new styles and fashion means is that we can see stuff differently, wear it differently and, maybe, add new interesting details to our looks. Or, if we find something brand new, well, that’s going to […]

Real quick. It’s still early, summer is not quite here yet, but having seen fall runways, I have a very intense and very purple, or else violet, feeling about this fall manicure. Cute springs lilac pastel shades are going to be gone and forgotten – till next spring. Seems to me, that we’ll see a lot of bright and bold violet nail shades this fall. And I like that. Because usually we get all the […]

Melrose. It immediately tells me one thing – trendy. This spring Orly offers a very edgy view of spring manicure. You know, how we usually have pastels and pinks in spring and this tender pastel green oftentimes? Well, Orly takes pink and green that we’re used to seeing and turns them into a whole new world of colour. Instead of going all tender and romantic, they go desserty, yummy and bright. The two main colours […]

Ok, so as long as we got the whole summer light thing this spring, I was excited to see what’s going to come this summer. I mean, you know, in spring we got not just pastel and stuff, we got more intense eye shades, gem stone shades, and we got sometimes more intense lip shades, like all the corals, that are usually a summer thing. So, I was thinking that this summer will be different, […]

When we think spring – we think bloom and blosssom. When we think bloom and blossom – we think flowers. When we think flowers – we think roses.

Well, and from rose we easily get to the […]

Under the category of more myself than makeup – what do you think of the whole wrap and tie shoe trend? You know, right, that all kind of shoes with strings on them that you wrap around you ankles and tie are ever so hot this spring? Just as sandals made of a bunch of thin straps. That’s a variation of the same trend.   Anyway, I’m so happy this trend kicked in so big […]
