Olympics not your speed? Check out the Nailympics!

Olympics not your speed? Check out the Nailympics!

Winter Olympics have always been my favorite. Since I was a little girl, I’ve been entranced watching the figure skating competitions. I’ve never had a yearning to compete myself — I’m athletically lacking (to say the least) — and I prefer not even to be in an ice skating rink, let alone learn the triple axel. Maybe that’s part of why it’s so magical. It’s the fantasy, the hugeness of it. You can watch that spin forever, no? The Sochi Olympic games have been getting a whole lot of jest (the conditions are less than favorable there, we hear) – but I’ve been trying to celebrate in style. Last week, I was fortunate enough to be invited to a opening ceremony viewing party, sponsored by P&G Beauty, where...

So into Sally Hansen’s new Fuzzy Coat Nail Polish

If you are looking for something warm to cuddle up to on a lonely night, you may  have to touch yourself. (No, wait…that may have come out wrong..?) Or can get a stuffed bear…or…check this out out.

(Fuzzy Fantasy is pictured at left.) Here’s a video of how to make the polish work for you,  here — as for human contact, may the force be with you. Summer nights are nothing like Grease promised, that’s all I have to say. Photo: Sally...

A touch of gray

I can’t tell you what I’m going to be for Halloween (though if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know soon enough…), but I can tell you it will very much involve a “touch” of gray.  Whatever color your holiday plans involve, you may want to consider something that will also adapt to your work situation — it is a Wednesday after all — but a little sparkle never hurts. butter LONDON Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer ($14) can play up any jewel-toned ensemble and is perfect for many a costume (including mine) – just you...

Lusting for Dior Les Violets Hypnotiques Nail Collection

Lusting for Dior Les Violets Hypnotiques Nail Collection

Dior has launched a new limited edition of nail polishes called Christian Dior Les Violets Hypnotiques – and they are simply purplelicious. Obviously, this means it consists of three purple shades: Poison, Orchid and Shadow. The polish is available at select Dior boutiques for $23 each – and I think I need to have all three. Sigh. FYI, purple is known to be the color of good judgment, and that is why it’s often used in meditation – so, I wonder, if I were to embrace this collection, would it change my  life? Clearly worth the investment. Disclaimer: I wore a purple dress to my grandmother’s third wedding. It only lasted for six months. Everyone loved the dress though… So much for good...
