Rainy Days, Jelly Beans, Polish & the Perfect Perfume

Rainy Days, Jelly Beans, Polish & the Perfect Perfume

Do you ever have days at work where you wish the day could just start over?  One of those days when your internet didn’t work until noon, when a shipment of products arrives broken and it’s been raining… all day?  We had one today.  And with almost nothing to do with the first four hours of our day, we dedicated it to enjoying ourselves with everything lovely that our office has to offer.  So, we enjoyed:

1.  The Zoya MatteVelvet Collection.  They’re finally in!  We got OPI’s Matte colors last week and thought they were cool, but we’re totally in love with Posh from Zoya.  This totally flat color has the perfect amount of sparkle in a totally chic deep red color.  The sparkle cheered us up for sure, as did the uber fast drying formula! Didn’t even smudge them typing.

2.  Rosie Jane’s Leila Lou Perfume Oil.  Pure springtime in a bottle.  Around here, we really love Kai’s perfume oil, but several of us have converted to Leila Lou gurus.  This beautiful oil is soft and airy, with beautiful floral hints and the perfect amount of sunny freshness.  We might have all been in a horrible mood today, but we smelled fantastic the whole time.

3.  Jelly Bean party.  At about 1:30pm on such frustrating days, we bust out a gazillion-flavor collection of Jelly Bellies and let crazy flavors like Buttered Popcorn, Jalepeno & Margarita let us “drown our sorrows” in sugar-y goodness.  It’s five o’clock somewhere, right!?

4.  Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Hair Mask.  So, here’s the deal: this is an incredibly moisturizing hair mask that gives your hair just a little added conditioning when your hair needs it most.  We were nervous to try it, as none of us had exceptionally coarse or dry hair, but we were happy to discover that it truly is designed for all hair types!  And to boot- we’re convinced it makes an excellent lotion.  The Boss unpacked a broken shipment today and managed to get it all over herself, and concluded that she might just start using it as a lotion.  Sure smells good enough to!

The good news, is on days like today when the world (or the office) comes crashing down, working around some of the cutest, happiest most fabulous products ever sure makes our job just a little bit easier.  🙂

OPI Matte Nail Polish- In stock with pictures!

Forget July 1st- we’ve got OPI Matte in and selling right now!  We’re so excited we got it a littl early, and we’ve loved trying it!  Just like we’d heard, the polish is totally matte, but has a beautiful luminosity to it that makes it truly beautiful!

I tried La Paz-itively Hot, simply because I’m in a hot pink mood.  I have the matte on my pointer & ring finger, and the original on my tall man & pinkie.  Here are some shots of how it turned out.  (Excuse my slightly sloppy application…)  What do you think?!

This is a great representation of the color, but the flash is thwarting the matte-ness.

See that subtle shimmer?  Makes it really lovely.

Coming this Fall- Matte Nail Polish!

In today’s industry, a flat, matte, no-luster polish is totally taking over nail polish fashion, and it seems like everyone is talking about.  And when we say matte, we mean MATTE.

Three of our favorite brands are offering matte nail polish solutions, which we’re totally excited about:

OPI is releasing six of their classic OPI colors in a chic matte finish.  The OPI Matte Collection includes matte versions of Alpine Snow, Gargantuan Green Grape, You Don’t Know Jacques!, La Paz-itively Hot, Lincoln Park After Dark & Russian Navy.  These colors will start selling everywhere in July, but we’re starting pre-orders next week!

Zoya MatteVelvet Collection

Zoya MatteVelvet Collection

Zoya’s matte polishes are from the Zoya MatteVelvet Collection, set to release in July.  This three polish collection offers interesting matte shimmer choices, claiming to be as matte as ever, with a subtle shimmer for an extra ounce of wearability.  These are also going to be available for ordering.  Click here to order & check product availability! (by the way, from the swatches I’ve seen, these are TOTALLY my favorite)

Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher

Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher

Essie approached the matte polish trend from a totally different angle.  Instead of releasing a matte collection for the fall, in August, they are releasing the Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher.  This matte topcoat is designed to make ANY Essie polish totally matte.  We’re excited about this product, because it allows you to make any of your favorite colors matte, without having to buy all new!  What a good idea!  We’ll be selling this in August, at this link.
