Bonjour, Gorgeous!

I know that I just wrote about nail polish, but I just had to fill you ladies in on the latest Fall collection from OPI, FRANCE.

Most of the colors in the collection are matte and include deep plum hues (perfect for toe nails, or fingernails for the brave). A great way to try out the line is to buy the Cafe Cuties Mini Pack, which comes with three of the most gorgey shades: Louvre Me Louvre Me Not, Parlez-vous OPI?, and Eiffel for This Color. In the pack, you also get a mini RapiDry Top Coat which I highly recommend.

The beauty shop that I work at is rapidly selling out of these packs, so move quickly! I found a website that retails the mini kits for $9.95, which isn't bad for the great colors you get. These hues are great transition colors for the season change and can also work for Winter. Enjoy, and work on your french accent! Au revoir!

Princesses Rule!

Okay, so I'm hugely into nail polish these days and I probably own well over 50 bottles of 'em. I fully realize that I am crazy.

I thought I'd share with you guys one of my fave pink shades, Princesses Rule! by OPI. It's pretty neutral and goes on quite sheer so you don't have to worry about tiny little nicks on your nails. The color is actually a bit more glittery than the picture shows and it literally reminds me of when I was 6 and wanted to be a princess. Actually, I still want to be a princess, but that is beside the point.

The nail polish retails for $5.49 on amazon.com--that was the cheapest that I could find--and one bottle will last you forever. Long live princesses!

Foxy Locks

So, I have a new job working at a beauty supply store and have fallen in love with multiple products. By far, my absolute fave has been The Foxy 5 collection by TIGI. I'm a huge fan of most of their products anyway, but this kit is nothing short of amazing.

The set retails for about $60, but if you were to buy each product separately it would cost double or more. Each gorgeous kit contains Foxy Shampoo, Conditioner, Contour Cream, Hi-Def Curls Spray & Mousse. My hair is usually what I refer to as "wavy frizz grossness" and I frequently flat iron my hair daily to avoid having a 'fro. That's fine and dandy, but takes a ton of time and can do serious damage to your hair. This kit literally made my hair look like a curly-haired goddess (not to brag) and the look lasted through quite a busy day.

The best part is that, depending on what look you want to achieve, you can mix and match the products. For just a little volume and wavy hair, you can skip the spray and mouse. Or, add in some of your own fave curling products to the mix. The possibilities are endless and anyone who has even the slightest wave to their hair will truly benefit from these products.

An added bonus? Everything smells super yummy!
