Spring Nail Trends – New Collections!

New Spring Collections

 Essie – OPI – Zoya

Zoya Lovely Collection

The latest from Zoya is the Lovely Collection that houses 6 pastel shades. Five of these colors are bright hues, all but Jacqueline which is a creamy, vanilla neutral.  The 2 colors that have been selling the most for us have been Blu and GeiGei. I think if you like soft pink tones, GeiGei will be a new favorite. This pink goes on light, soft and shimmery, and is extremely flattering on the nail. Easter is coming up, find a light hue for that Sunday best!

OPI Euro Centrale Collection

 OPI Loves to launch new collections in increments of 12. We don’t mind, it gives us more colors to chose from! Big hits from the OPI Euro Centrale Collection are Polka.com, which is not a surprise with the glitter craze still in full swing. My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours as well as A Woman’s Praguative have been popular sellers as well. The bronze colors seem to always take off, regardless of the collection. These  bold shades are great “pops” of color when wearing simple solids. If you read our second to latest blog, you can see where OPI got their inspiration from for this collection!

zoya pixie

The Zoya Pixie Dust Collection is a glittery and sandy matte polish with a 3D effect. This collection has been overwhelmingly popular! The best seller has been Godiva. This shadeh as been popular because it is a neutral and the most wearable color in the collection. It goes on evenly, and dries with a slight subtle shimmer. A nice every day polish. If you like matte polishes, this collection is definitely something new.

Coming Very Soon!

Essie

The Essie Madison Ave-Hue collection contains very wearable colors, we know these shades will be a huge hit! The gray and creamy undertones make these colors attractive and modern. One thing we know Essie gets right every time, their reds! They go on easily, and Essie offers reds that people find appealing and usually in shades that always seem to be slightly different than the rest!

Whether you like bolds, pastels, or neutrals, a fun new polish a great way to spice up an outfit. Find your collection and bring some warm and color back into your nails!

Valentines Day Gift Ideas – Beauty of a Site

Valentines Day is here again, but this year, we’re not going to make the mistakes of last year. No more getting your wife a humidifier, long under wear, or socks. Surprise her with a gift you  know she will love.

People love being pampered!  So what does that mean for you? It means taking the time to stop, and really think “what does this person enjoy, how can I make them feel special?”

Valentines Day Store

We will start with gifts for HER first…

Sometimes it’s hard to find time for yourself with work and other daily responsibilities so  we think it would be a wonderful thing to offer your Valentine the gift of  “me time”. By giving her bath salts or bubble bath you’re telling her, relax and don’t you dare feel guilty!

All women have those days they just feel “blah” and not put together.  We can all admit that when we get a hair cut, a manicure or new clothes, we feel renewed. Pamper your Valentine and gift her any one of Zoya’s many beautiful nail polish collections. What a fun way to give a gift of luxury. Let your gal paint her fingers and her toes and give her an array of colors to chose from!

Have you heard of Kai? You may recognize Kai from the many magazines it has been featured in, Kai has also been on Opra’s favorite list! All Kai products are lightly scented with the signature scent, white gardenia. Kai sells an array of products for woman ranging from body wash, shampoo & conditioner, perfume, linen spray, etc… Check out Kai | Click Here.

Women love a man who can cook, or in this instance, offer up a delicious home made sundae!  Have you heard of Serendipity3? This is a famous and most delicious restaurant in New York City, and they serve a to die for hot fudge sundae! They have packaged their recipe for the perfect at home frozen hot chocolate sundae! Now all you need is the movie!

For your guy!

A major misconception about this holiday is, that it is just for woman, and that is simply not true! Men deserve to feel special too!

A great gift for the man in your life is the LUXO Oporto Soap Gift set. He can use them at the gym, at home, on trips, they will make him smell exceptionally good! With 3 great scents to chose from, he can mix it up any way he wants! Generally, and this is not always the case, but most men need help when shopping for hygiene items. They need us ladies to tell them what looks good on them and what smells good on them!

Fresh for Spring 2013, Zoya Pixie Dust Collection!

Zoya Pixie Blog

Zoya wins us over with yet another fantastic collection fresh for Spring 2013.

Textured nail polishes have been very popular this season, with newly released collections such as the  OPI Sand Collection, inspired by Mariah Carey. It’s no wonder that Zoya followed suit with their new fun and flirty textured, glittery matte polish!

We noticed that this collection has 3 light shades and 3 darker bolder colors, and we love this! It allows for evening and day transitions. We think Dhalia would be a great toe shade, and Godiva would make for a great classy wear, to lets say work or an evening out with the girls! This polish applies thick and evenly for smooth application.

This collection dries to look like a nail wrap, which is neat. Our employees and employees kids have tried this polish, and it wears exceptionally well. These shades stay on the nail and don’t have a tenancy to chip, which is ideal for someone with an active life style.

Shop our collection now. We are taking pre-orders, packages will ship beginning of February.

It’s Here! The OPI Skyfall Collection!

The newest James Bond movie, Skyfall, which debuted in the U.S. this past weekend, grossed $87.8 million, bringing the movie’s overall gross to over $500 million so far (Boston Herald). This revenue for a James Bond movie debut sets the new record above the $67 million brought in during the first weekend of Quantum of Solace in 2008 (Boston Herald).

This collection features 6 new dangerous shades, all of which can be layered underneath the previously anticipated 18K gold leaf top coat, Man With The Golden Gun! Bold styles and colors are hitting the red carpet this Winter and this gold leaf polish is right on trend…and we don’t know about you, but we love a little bling!

Naomie Harris is one of two leading ladies in Skyfall. Known for her roles in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, this British actress portrays Eve, a field agent with James Bond. At Skyfall’s red carpet premiere, the actress wore a dress by Marios Schwab. She wore a deep, rich, burgundy color nail polish, which you can match with the OPI Skyfall shade!

The second female star is French actress Berenice Marlohe, who’s first major movie appearance is in Skyfall. She plays Severine alongside James Bond.  At the film’s red carpet premiere, Bernice wore a dress by Vivienne Westwood. She also dazzled the crowd with her signature smokey eye and messy yet poised up-do. Try our ModelCo Eyeshadow Trio in Smokey Eye to get your own smokey-eyed look!

The OPI Skyfall Collection celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Bond 007!  It is filled with eye-pleasing darks that are perfect for this winter season! Popular shades to note are OPI The Living Daylights, which is an elegant multi-color glitter sparkle. We also really love the OPI Live and Let Die because of it’s mysterious and rich blue-black shade, which is perfect for winter.  Check them out here and get yours before they are gone…..it is a limited edition, which means when they are sold out, they are gone for good!!
$8.50 per bottle | Shop now!

OPI has also created an 18K gold topcoat called The Man with the Golden Gun. This polish contains real gold flecks and is released in very limited quantities.  Most stores are already sold out….but we have a few left!!   Real gold nail polish is a trend right now among celebrities, so it’s the perfect time to grab your gold for that Bond Girl manicure!
