Nicole By O.P.I. To Release Liquid Metals Collection

It’s probably a little early for you to start thinking about next year, but come January, you’re going to want to sport Nicole by O.P.I.’s Liquid Metals nail polish collection. Touches of metal are one of the hottest beauty and fashion trends now, and these nail lacquers come in a range of metallics, from shimmering sea foam to sophisticated champagne. “Metallic shades are perfect to wear with all clothing colors, adding some easy edge to your wardrobe,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI’s Executive VP & Artistic Director, in a press release. I think the names of these new polishes — “Miss Independent,” “The Next CEO,” “Rich in Spirit,” and “It Starts with Me” — will also help you stay on track with your New Year’s career resolutions. Look for the Liquid Metals collection at ULTA, Walmart, Target, Sears, Harmon, HEB, and Wegmans in January. Keep reading »

Cadbury Brings You … Nail Polish?

Cadbury (yes, the chocolate aficionados) has teamed up with U.K. nail company Nail Inc. to produce two limited-edition nail lacquers based on the new Cadbury Milk Bliss chocolate bar. The polishes come in two colors, “Vanilla Bliss,” a soft beige, and “Chocolate Bliss,” a creamy cocoa. Both polishes look divine, but the beauty gods have not shined on us, poor Americans: The mini line is only available in the U.K. I imagined “Vanilla Bliss” would be the color to define my fall. Oh well! The lacquers after the jump could be substitutes for the Cadbury collection. Keep reading »

Justin Bieber Lends His Name To Walmart Nail Polish

Like Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis before him, Justin Bieber is co-branding with a line of nail polishes. The Biebs lent his name to a new line of Nicole nail polishes that will be exclusively available at Walmart beginning in December, and in stores like Target and Ulta after that. The polishes include reds, purples, blues and glittery shades and are titled after classic Bieber songs, like “Step 2 the Beat of My Heart” (pictured above) and “One Less Lonely Girl” (but it’s called One Less Lonely Glitter). Damn, when I was a hormonal Hanson fan they never did anything like this! Someone out there in Corporate America believes tween girls will buy anything Bieber-related … and the sad thing is, they’re probably right. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Nars Re-Releases Vintage Nail Polishes Named For Blockbuster Films

I feel as if I’m always on a quest for my next favorite nail polish. As someone who treats myself to a weekly manicure, seven days can seem like an eternity and I can get bored really fast. That’s why I let out a squeal when I first saw Nars’ “Zulu,” one of five vintage polishes from the Nars archives named after blockbuster films. Zulu is the true green I’ve been looking for and makes me long for corduroy and flannel plaid. If green isn’t your idea of an amazing nail color, the limited-edition collection also includes a gold called “Mash,” a silver named “Full Metal Jacket,” a bronze-y-orange called “King Kong,” and a royal blue dubbed “Midnight Express.” And $16 is an amazing price for something beautiful and vintage. [$16, Nars] Keep reading »

How To Get The Chevron Stripe Manicure At Jose Duran

Ignore the alien-like makeup from the Jose Duran spring 2011 fashion show, and instead focus on the black and white chevron stripe nails. Pattie Yankee and the Dashing Diva team created this bold French-like manicure to complement the androgynous tone of Jose Duran’s collection. The manicurist used rounded press-on nails for the female models, but kept nails short and painted for the males. I think the women’s talons elongate the fingers, but even if you prefer shorter nails, you can still recreate this manicure for yourself. All you need is a steady hand or a friend with one. Get the details on the chevron stripe manicure after the jump. Keep reading »
