China Glaze All Aboard Collection Press Release

China Glaze All Aboard CollectionAutumn is my favourite season because of the rich colours, explosion in fashion, new beauty products, pumpkin spice lattes, colours of the changing leaves, knitting projects, and pumpkin pies! (Plus Hallowe’en is my favourite holiday.)

So you can just imagine how excited I am about the China Glaze All Aboard Collection, which is their fall release, launching in September!

The shades are rich, and, as with many of China Glaze’s collections, this one is full of variety, so there’s something for everyone.

When I first read the press release and saw the promo pictures, I was most enticed by Choo-Choo Choose You and Mind the Gap.

Which ones catch your eye initially?

Zoya Entice & Ignite Collection Press Release

Zoya Entice & Ignite CollectionThere are two halves, which make up the new release, which can now be pre-ordered on their official website: the Zoya Entice Collection and Zoya Ignite Collection.

Although both look very promising, I’m drawn more to the Zoya Ignite Collection because of the amazing finish – it’s so fiery!

Those polishes look like the kind where you can’t stop staring on your nails in all different lighting.

Out of all the shades in the Zoya Ignite Collection, Remy makes my heart skip a beat and then do Double Dutch in the school yard! ;) Yeah, that’s how gorgeous I think the shade is!

Which half do you like more, and what are your top 3 picks?

OPI Designer Series Nail Polishes with Polished Quartz Finish: OPI DS Titanium & OPI DS Tourmaline Press Release

OPI DS Titanium OPI DS TourmalineToday’s post is going up tonight instead of the morning as usual because guess what? Last night, the power unexpectedly went out!

I even woke up extra early today, in the hopes that the power would come back on and then I could post something for my awesome readers. Sadly, the electricity was still out, which made getting ready for work quite interesting.

Thankfully, I have lots of scented candles that I’m now proud I hoard. Haha!

It was cool to get ready by candlelight. A little romantic, even! ;)

As you can tell from this post, now, I’ve got the power! (Hehe, that was meant to be sung to the tune of the song by Snap!) Hopefully it doesn’t go out again – fingers, toes, and eyes crossed!

So, here’s a press release about two new OPI Designer Series nail polishes that feature a Polished Quartz finish: OPI DS Titanium and OPI DS Tourmaline!

They launch on September 3rd, which isn’t that far away. Crazy how fast time flies!

The Polished Quartz finish is new, and it’s semi-matte while still have lots of sparkle. OPI’s PR was sweet enough to send me both to try, so please let me know which one you’d like me to wear and review first. :)

P.S. Remember, you still have until August 15 at 11:59 pm EDT to enter my worldwide giveaway for your chance to win 1 of 4 autographed bottles of Pretty Serious Swatch And Learn, the nail polish I designed! (Yup, there will be FOUR WINNERS!)

OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 Press Release

OPI Pink of Hearts 2014Slated for a September release, and just in time for October (aka Breast Cancer Awareness Month), the OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 set features two pink nail polishes and a cute nail file with a pink-ribbon charm.

In addition to helping to raise awareness of breast cancer, OPI will donate $25,000 to Susan G. Komen® and $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.

One shade is OPI Mod About You, and the other is the limited-edition OPI The Power of Pink.

If you followed me on my social-media accounts, you saw that I posted a bottle shot of OPI The Power of Pink, as well as photos of a couple of polishes from the OPI Peanuts Collection.

I’ll definitely be wearing and reviewing OPI The Power of Pink, so stay tuned! Hehe, so many polishes and so few nails! ;)

OPI Peanuts Collection Press Release

OPI Peanuts Collection Press ReleaseAutumn is just a wink away, and although the last thing you may want to think about is the weather getting cooler, I have some nail news that I hope you love as much as I do!

The OPI Peanuts Collection isn’t just a fall launch, but it’s a Hallowe’en collection! *Squeals*

It hits stores in September, which I can’t believe is next month! The summer has really flown by so quickly this year, hasn’t it? And there has been a lot of rain, which is odd.

(In case you didn’t know, Hallowe’en is my favourite holiday, so although I’m trying to contain my excitement, um, I just can’t!) ;)

There are 4 shades, so it’s a small collection, but that’s okay. The colours look fun, and I think it’s a very unique collaboration to pair Charlie Brown with nail polish. It’s also cool to see fun black glitter polishes. Plus there isn’t a typical orange that you see a billion times in other Hallowe’en collections.

Zoya Naturel Deux Collection Press Release

Zoya Naturel Deux CollectionZoya sent me some new information regarding the Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection that’s available to be pre-ordered starting today!

If you loved the first Zoya Naturel Collection, you’ll also like these new additions that feel right at home in terms of being work-appropriate and easy-to-wear.

While I’m head over heels in love with green nail polish and bold shades that scream their little lungs out, I can appreciate a good neutral every now and then. I always feel really classy when I do so, and I can count on Zoya to deliver creamy formulas that apply beautifully.

In the new Zoya Natural Deux Collection, there are 6 new shades. Half are brownish, and the other half are plummy.

Check out the rest of this post for more detailed information that Zoya sent me, as well as promo pictures, so you’ll get a better idea of the colours and how they can be worn together in many different combinations.
