(picture courtesy of just nice things)Getting ready for Spring 2011 O.P.I. has it all together...Introducing their newest polish called The Texas Collection. They come in a bunch of cremes and sparkles which we know the Texians love, which may be where the inspiration came from. I must say, O.P.I. comes up with good themes for the names of their collections. The names are very catchy and you will recognize them because they are expressions that the good ole gals use in the Mid west. "Dont' mess with O.P.I.", "Austin tatious Turquoise", "Do you think I'm Tex-y", and "Houston we have a Problem" are just a few of the creative names used in this collection. Looks like an O.K. corral to me! :) Can't wait! O.P.I. where you at? I need this in my O.P.I. collection asap!

Qtica (pronounced Q-T- ka) has a hand repair balm for dry chappy hands. It is the Balm!! (bomb) get it..LOL
I enjoy this balm because it gives your hands a boost of hydration. They also have a foot balm that my client and friend "Choc" swears by. She purchased some from www.zoya.com because I used it on her feet and she fell in love. Well, the hand balm is equally as good. Go get balmed and try"Lael" polish by Zoya.(shown in the pic) If you didn't know, Qtica and Zoya are all part of "Art of Beauty"...some of my favorite people. (shout out to Erin and Leo) :)

Will you be getting these colors? Serena Williams, Justin Beiber and now coming to the stage is Katy Perry. O.P.I. has cornered the celebrity market for making polish lines for just about everyone. Well, not exactly everyone but it looks like they are going after everyone. This new collection is due out Jan 2011 just like Serena's grand slam line. I hope to have them all before they drop in stores. :) (hint, hint O.P.I.) The colors will be name after Katy's song and they don't look bad. The names are Teenage Dream, Not like the Movies, Last Friday Night, and The One That Got Away.
Bridal shows are starting to show the newest styles in wedding dress styles. Just like fashion week it is a big production, hair, make up and of course nails. Zoya was the choice of the St. Pucchi Bridal show and I was the choice to give the manicures. In case you were wondering is that silver polish? Yes it is, it's "Laney" by Zoya which is a perfect choice for a wedding. No longer are the days of the every day so often done wrong french manicure. (I am not a fan of the french manicure in case your wondering) A bride can wear a silver and have her hands look just as beautiful as her dress on her wonderful day. This silver went perfectly with the collection they were showing. Leonor Greyl was the hair brand that was used for the girls hair.
Here are the dresses from the this years show.

Wedding dresses are not what they use to be. So as different as the dresses are, your nail polish for that special day can follow suit. :)

On this photo shoot some days ago, was very interesting. Once because, it was on location which is always fun but it was at a home of a very nice couple whose home was very abstract inside and out. A lot of color, color, color and odd things around the home. It was definitely very specific for their taste, which in turn was the perfect backdrop for the photo shoot. The story was futuristic, edgy, symmetrical, and sharp. This home fit right in...Oh wait, I meant to say the fashion shoot fit right in with the home :) Great location!! My job of course were the nails. They wanted to do the "moon look" that I have posted previously, but I got inspired by the home, the jewelry and the clothes and suggested a different idea. They loved it and it look something like this...
Instead of a round/moon look I suggested the "v" the opposite way (at the bottom instead of the top of the nail) They looked great with the concept of the shoot. It gave a new spin on an old idea. The color used was by Nars.
The team did a great job with the entire look for the shoot. Everyone was in a great mood but I think the colorful house may have something to do with it LOL... check it out..

Did you know that in some states metal cuticle pushers are not allowed? Well if you didn't know now you do. Some states require manicurist to use orangewood sticks to push back cuticles instead of the metal pushers. Now the reality of that is, is that most do not follow this rule. A metal pusher does get the job done a lot faster and more accurate. If you do use a metal pusher make sure that the edge that you use has a curved or scoop edge to help protect your nail plate from being scratch or damaged. (hench why they are not allowed in certain states). The orangewood stick does not have a curved edge therefore you should wrap the edge in cotton to allow for a softer use and prevent scratching the surface of your nail plate. Both can be damaging if not use properly or aggressively. Either one your manicurist should use with care and very carefully. You can check with your state dept to find out which too is allowed in your state. Until then make sure your manicurist is taking care of your hands properly when using a metal pusher or an orangewood stick.
The polish fairies at Zoya have done it again. Known for their metallics and sparkling polishes, Zoya has released a collection full of both. Free from toluene,camphor, formaldehyde, and DBP, Zoya is a vegan polish that still has staying power. Long wearing, pretty and sparkly, what more can a girl ask for.
Gotta Love it!
