Blog News: I’m Attending the Nicole by OPI Spring 2015 Collection Launch Blogger Dinner Today

Nicole by OPI

I am honoured to have been invited to attend an exclusive blogger dinner tonight for the Nicole by OPI Spring 2015 launch!

A select few bloggers were chosen to participate in this intimate event, which makes it even more special. (It’s not every day that I get to chat with fellow bloggers!)

It’ll be nice to see some familiar faces and to meet new-to-me bloggers. We’ll all share the common thread, so it’ll be interesting to hear what they have to say about their experiences.

Not only will we be able to stuff our faces with what will no doubt be delicious cuisine, but we’ll get to chat about the latest Nicole by OPI Spring 2015 Collection!

Also, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, the Co-Founder, Brand Ambassador, Executive VP, and Artistic Director of OPI will be answering any questions I have via e-mail after the event! Very cool – I’ll be sure to share my questions and her answers with you all in a future post.

If you have any questions that you’d like me to ask Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, please feel free to leave a comment here to let me know.

I’ll also be active on my social-media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and Pinterest), but especially Twitter and Instagram, so follow me there to get my live tweets during the event and as many photos as I can take without looking like a paparazzi creep. ;)

You can also tweet any questions you have for Suzi:

If you tag me in the question, I’ll make sure that I include your question when I send my interview questions to Suzi.

Then, stay tuned, because I plan to write an in-depth post on the whole experience.

Thanks to PR for giving me this incredible opportunity! And a huge thank you to my blog readers. Without you, I wouldn’t have doors like this opening! You are so supportive and inspiring!

P.S. Stay tuned tomorrow because the nail-news train keeps on chugging! ;) Yup, I have more exciting things to share with you. Hint hint!

Blog News: My Funky French Nail Art Tutorial on PromCanada.com

Funky French Nail Art Tutorial SwatchAndLearn PromCanadaIt’s amazing how powerful nail polish is!

Even if you spent a long, crappy day dealing with lazy individuals who seem to make slugs stuck in molasses look as fast as Usain Bolt, the physical act of painting your nails is relaxing.

And even if the nail design is simple or there are imperfections, the wonderful thing is that you feel happy instantly. It’s like colour therapy plus beauty, all rolled into a convenient package!

Give yourself some “me” time, as you relax and paint your nails. You may be surprised at how therapeutic it can be.

I’m very honoured to have had the opportunity to once again showcase a nail-art tutorial on PromCanada.com.

This time, I painted a very simple look featuring just two contrasting colours, Nicole by OPI Oh That’s Just Grape! and Nicole by OPI Teal Me Something New.

It’s ideal for those who don’t want to spend a lot of time doing their nails, but still want something fun and easily customizable.

It uses just two different nail-polish colours, and it’s very quick to paint, so it’s not only ideal for a prom look, but for any time when you want your nails to be bold and really pop.

Nicole by OPI Lay It on the Lime Swatches & Review

Nicole by OPI Lay It On the Lime Swatches & ReviewNicole by OPI Lay It on the Lime is a fresh, light green from the Seize the Summer Collection, which officially will be released in June.

(You may remember me posting a photo on Instagram photo of this not long ago.)

It looks really bright and clean (almost neon-like), which is how my smartphone captured it well. Then when I used my DSLR, somehow the colour got muted. Funny how that happens from time to time.

So when you look at my photos of this on the blog, please keep in mind that it does appear brighter in real life. (I was actually surprised by this one because it looked way more near-neon-like on my nails than it seemed like it would when I just saw it in the bottle. Hehe, it was a very pleasant surprise, of course!)

Nicole by OPI Seize the Summer CollectionHere’s the latest news coming down the nail-polish pipe about the Nicole by OPI Seize the Summer Collection, which will be available in stores this June.

It’s a small collection, as it only includes 4 shades (left-right): Lay It On The Lime, The Coral of the Story, LeaPink for Joy, and Shaved Nice.

Of course the lime green gets my attention right off the bat! ;) But I also think the coral is nice and summery.

Which one stands out the most to you?

Blog News: My Fishtail Braid Nail Art Tutorial on PromCanada.com

Fishtail Braid Nail Art TutorialIn a previous post, I told you about how I was 1 of 2 handpicked bloggers asked to share nail art tutorials that would be featured on the Prom Canada website for every other month.

Well, February was my first one showing a leopard design. Now that it’s April, I have a new nail tutorial up that just went live yesterday – it shows Fishtail Braid Nail Art mixed with textured accents!

This time, I shared a technique that I’ve long loved because it doesn’t require too many colours or special tools to complete the look – you can use the brushes right from the bottles.

I find myself turning to it time and time again, plus it’s so easy to customize that the same design looks very different, depending on what colours you use.

In this post, I’ll share with you detailed step-by-step instructions with photos, so you can recreate this easy look. You’ll need some patience, but once you’re finished painting, it’s well worth it!

You know how much I love doing the fishtail braid – I shared this technique on Swatch And Learn here, here, and here.
