KB Shimmer 2012 Winter Collection Release and My Wish List Grows!

The snow is falling, the fires are burning, and…who am I kidding?  I live in California.  The weather is a little bit cooler, but there’s no snow and because I’m away at school, there are no fireplaces.  Winter break is coming though, and I couldn’t be more excited!

I absolutely love the holidays.  I don’t love them because of the presents, but I love them because of the feeling I get when they roll around.  I know it’s not the same for everything, but there are feelings of love, family, togetherness, and warmth in my home.  Cuddling up in a blanket and watching movies all day is what I love to do, whether it be with my sisters, my sorority sisters, my friends, or my boyfriend.  It’s also nice having a winter break when you’re in college, because the break falls between the two semesters – this means no homework!  More time to do absolutely…nothing.

So because my two loves (right now) are the holidays and nail polish, what could be more perfect than…a holiday nail polish collection?!  I just received notice about the release of KB Shimmer’s 2012 Winter Collection, and these glitterbombs are to DIE for.  The photo below comes from Colores de Carol website.

Oh.  My.  Gosh.  I am in love.  These colors reach all ends of the holidays, from candy cane colors to gold!  I am definitely going to be keeping my eyes on these when they come out (and after my No-Buy November is over, of course).  I don’t know about you, but I really want Snow Way!, Cocoa Nut, and Sugar Plum Faerie.

These polishes will be available for retail on Thursday, November 15th at noon EST!  Christy said not to worry though, because they will be available on her website for a while.  🙂  Whew!

Visit KB Shimmer’s website to buy these polishes, and please let me know which ones you pick up!
Which ones do you have your eyes on?  Do you love the holidays as much as me?

Have a good rest of the week and enjoy your weekend!  I know I will, I will finally be out of school for fall break!


Pomegranate Nail Lacquer Fall Collection Preview

Ladies!  I am still here, I promise!  I have missed you all so much, but I have also missed the luxury of sleeping, eating at regular times of the day, and relaxing!  I just started fieldwork this week, so I’m in a little kindergarten classroom interacting with the kids.  It is so much fun and I know I chose the right profession.  🙂  I also have so much sorority stuff to do, because we are currently planning all of our philanthropy events and getting our Fall 2012 new member class!  Luckily, this upcoming week should be a lot less busy.  I ordered a couple of handmade polishes off of Etsy, so as soon as those babies come in they will be all over this blog!

In the meantime, I have some really exciting news!  Remember my review on the Pomegranate Nail Lacquer?  Those amazing, colorful polishes?  I just received news that they are releasing their Fall 2012 collection!  Let me just tell you these colors are absolutely beautiful and not like anything I have ever seen in a Fall collection!

These seven exclusive shades are meant to represent the colors and feelings of autumn, fashion, and the arts.

Are these not the most beautiful colors you have ever seen?!  I am SO excited, you don’t even know!
The names of these colors are adorable as well!

From left to right:
Lust in the Library: It’s getting cozy in the campus study.  This eggplant creme polish is rich, glossy, and pretty damn sexy!
Cardigan: Because who doesn’t love a comfy cardigan sweater?  This teal jelly polish will become your new favorite splash of color.  (It is more teal than it appears in the photos.)
Autumnesque: A shimmery coppery polish that reflects russet leaves, apple cider, and all that is best about fall.
Curator: A fashionable night out captured in a bottle – this luxurious black polish is packed with gold and silver glitter.
Improv Show: Lights, stage, and laugher!  This dark purple polish is flecked with silver sparkle to reflect the darkness of the theater and the bright spotlights.
Midnight Satellite: This deep midnight teal polish is flecked with silver sparkle and recalls a crisp, cool, starry autumn night.
Cuddles: A romantic dusty rose shimmer for laid-back and lovely  moments.

Okay ladies at Pomegranate Nail Lacquer, how am I EVER supposed to pick which polishes I want?!  I will probably be getting most of these…they are all way to lovely to chose from!  Definitely Curator, Improv Show, Midnight Sattelite, and Cuddles though.

These polishes will be available for sale at the Pomegranate Nail Lacquer website starting on Monday, September 17th!
Please head over there and grab a few of these super hot fall shades so you can show them off to all of your friends as soon as the fall weather rolls around!

New China Glaze Texture Collection

What, what, WHAT IS THIS?!

This past week has been absolutely jam packed with sorority events, getting ready for classes, and just getting myself settled in my new house!  I love living in the sorority house so far, and I am getting really excited for the semesters to come.  Unfortunately, with the start of a semester comes less time to do things other than school and sorority stuff…so I haven’t had too much time for my nails.  Luckily, this weekend is labor day weekend and I have another really exciting review for you!

The other day I was looking on the internet and I found a picture for (possibly) a new collection coming from China Glaze!

Apparently it is called the “Texture Collection”.  What it is is gritty nail polish that probably has a matte finish.

All of these images were found on http://www.everything2k.com/2012/08/china-glazes-new-texture-collection-2013.html?spref=fb .  I haven’t seen a legitimate post about this collection yet, but someone somewhere created it!  It is supposed to have the texture of sand.

I know we have had caviar and velvet nails, but what do you think about this possible gritty nail polish?  Do you feel like it looks dirty or unique?  In my opinion, it might kind of look like there are bumps in your nail polish, like air bubbles!  I am very interested to see these swatched!

OPI Announces 2013 Collection Collaboration with Who?!

Lately, OPI has been pairing up with several celebrities and collaborating on unique collections for their brand.  Just to name a few, they created the Katy Perry collection

the Nicki Minaj collection

and even the Minnie Mouse collection!

I was just informed this morning that OPI will now be doing a collaboration with Mariah Carey in January 2013!  I’m not surprised that Mariah Carey has caught the eye of OPI – she is a five time Grammy award winning global superstar and has had 18 Billboard number one singles!  OPI stated that they are “thrilled to work with Mariah” because she “loves nails and considers lacquer one of her favorite accessories”.  They plan on using their inspiration to create beautiful and bold colors, and I am so excited to see what they come up with!

There are no photos or even hints at possible names for the polishes yet, but I have a few ideas of my own.  First of all, these colors are going to be vampy, shimmery, and probably a couple of gorgeous divalicious glitters.  There has to be one polish named for her twin babies – that’s for sure.  There should also be one named after her number one hit “Always Be My Baby”.  Oh my gosh…”Always Be My Twin Babies”.  That’d be hilarious.

What do you think of OPI’s upcoming collaboration with Mariah Carey?  What kind of colors do you think it will be made up of?  Do you have any interesting possible names for the polishes?

Selena Gomez’s Nicole by O.P.I. Collection

First, there was Justin Bieber.

My computer won’t let me copy and paste photo links! But this photo is not mine!

Then, the Kardashians.

Photo isn’t mine! Will add credit later! Laptop is not working properly.

Now, Selena Gomez.

Selena Gomez recently announced on her Facebook page that she has partnered with Nicole by O.P.I. to create an entire collection!  I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited.

Let me explain to you why.  We all know that O.P.I. is a brand name that is very well known.  They are constantly producing classy, fun shades for women.  No matter what your age, profession, or favorite color, there is no doubt that O.P.I. has a color for you.  However, note that I said “women”.  While they do have certain collections, colors, and glitters that can be worn on younger more daring women, I feel as if a majority of their colors are something you could wear to the office.  What Nicole by O.P.I. provides is the same, high quality product that O.P.I. makes, but in more fun colors that are directed towards a younger audience.  If this wasn’t one of their goals…why would they have made a collection with Justin Bieber?  They had to have known that every thirteen year old girl was going to be begging their parents to take them to the store so they could buy Bieber polishes.

Another reason why I’m excited for this collection is simple: it’s Selena Gomez.  Selena Gomez has been one of the better role models that sprung from Disney Channel; meaning that she hasn’t really done anything terrible to be in the tabloids (unless you consider dating Justin Bieber terrible, which I don’t, because who wouldn’t date Justin Bieber if given the chance).  She always seems bubbly and happy, and a lot of her music videos are colors and different.  This leads me to believe that her collection will have some really funky and unique colors and glitters…a dream for any polishaholic.

There are a lot of people that I would love to see a Nicole by O.P.I. collection for!  Demi Lovato would be a good one – she would have a lot of dark vampy colors but also an equal amount of very glitzy and divalicious glitters (did I really just say divalicious?).  Miley Cyrus would probably have some crazy shades too!  Oh my gosh, what about Beyonce?!  Those would be super classy and gorgeous!

Selena Gomez’s collection is set to come out early 2013.  Which might be too long for me to wait!  😉
