Today we’re loving…Lancome Vernis in Love Nail Colour
Friday, May 25th, 2012

The sun is shining, the toes are out and begging for a pretty new colour. My new fave thing – or things – has to be Lancome Vernis in Love Nail Colour, perfect for my despo toes. I was lucky enough to be sent a range of shades (there are a whopping 20 to choose from) and I can confirm that yes, they’re some of the most ideal nail shades on offer. I say ideal because they’re colours I have actually been searching for forever – from the luxurious navy blue of Bleu de Flore (above) to the deep lilac of Violette Coquette. The bottle is a new design which fits perfectly into your hand with the brush said to be ‘mistake free’ – I covered a nail in just one stroke. The finish is beautifully glossy, even without a top coat, thanks to the ‘micro mirrors’ in each bottle and is pretty resilient too. Ar £12 a bottle, I’m in love, are you?

Beauty news: Say ‘Guten Tag’ to OPI’s A/W collection
Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Over a ‘Fruhstuck’ of Knockwurst and pretzels, I was introduced to the wunderbar new A/W collection from OPI, celebrating everything German!

With typically cute OPI nail shades of Nein!Nein!Nein!Ok Fine!, a sultry olive, Danke-Shiny Red, a ruby red, Every Month is Oktoberfest, a pretty plum and Berlin There, Done That, a neutral taupe, the 12-shade collection follows on from this summer’s celebration of Holland.

But why Germany? Suzi Weiss Fischmann, Executive Vice President and Artistic Director (she creates and names the shades – yes, we want her job too) said that Germany is the “hottest country in Europe right now” and that her inspiration came from the fashion in Berlin. We love this collection, with Don’t Talk Bach To Me, a lime-yellow, top of our wish list – which is top of yours?

Released later this year, the shades will be priced at £11 each, available from Lenawhite.

Sienna Miller has shown how eco-inclined she really is after it was revealed she loves eco-friendly LA based nail polish brand, Nubar. According to reports, her shade du jour is Costa Rica Coral, a zingy orange-based bright (below).

Plus, the nail polishes are great for pregnant women like Sienna as they are toxin-free and vegan friendly too. Colours with a conscience? That’s our kind of brand. Nubar is available from Beautyshed, priced at £8.
