CND Modern Folklore Collection

Get ready to fall in love with the new Modern Folklore Collection by CND. This set of six shades is available in the Weekly Vinylux System, which means no need for a base coat and your nails stay super shiny for a full week! If that wasn’t enough to catch your interest, then take a look at the gorgeous Fall colour choices. All of these shades are so rich and perfectly fitting to the sweater-weather season. 

The six shades are shown below, from left to right: Indigo Frock, Locket Love, Crimson Sash, Rose Brocade, Fine Vermilion, and Plum Paisley.

Some of the most stunning ones are actually quite unique, such as Locket Love, a super pale gold metallic. It was pretty light and it took three coats for a good opacity, but it’s unlike any other polish I own.. I own over 500 bottles so that’s kind of a big deal! Locket Love is flashy and fashionable, and perfect for any day when you need a little extra bling. 

Crimson Sash is a shimmery dark red that just scream holidays and hot chocolate. It’s smooth and luxurious and definitely a staple shade to have in the cold weather. Indigo Frock is just as smooth and stunning. It’s a very dark blue that verges on grey/black, and it looks like your favourite pair of dark jeans just melted into one amazing bottle of polish. 

Although I’ve been obsessing over those three shades the three remaining ones (Fine Vermilion, Rose Brocade, and Plum Paisley) are just as amazing. Each of these six shades is a Fall classic and will be perfect to pair with a cozy sweater and boots. The CND Modern Folklore Collection for Fall 2014 hit the nail on the head and delivered six pretty polishes you won’t want to miss!

This pretty little highlighter is perfect for a quick swipe of a luminous champagne glow. Use it on cheekbones or under brows for a slight shimmer that will catch the light and create a sexy highlight this summer.

See My Two New Favourite Eye Liners For Spring!

The first day of Spring was a few days ago so in honour of the new season I have some new eyeliners to show you! I have one pencil one and one liquid one to show you, and both are absolutely amazing. I’ve been reaching for the for the past few weeks and have gotten a ton of compliments when I wear them.

CoverGirl Ink It! by Perfect Point Plus

First up is the CoverGirl Ink It! by Perfect Point Plus, $9.99. These liners come in 6 shades that can create a variety of looks. I love the Aquamarine Ink and Golden Ink shades for a bright pop of colour with my brown eyes. You don’t need to sharpen these liners and they glide on in a smooth motion. They also last for hours and are waterproof so you don’t need to worry about them once you apply!
The second one is the new Rimmel London ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Liner, $7.99. This liner is bold and dramatic, with a slanted tip that allows you to draw thick or thin lines. The precision, control, and smooth formula make this liner a winner all around, but the real sellign factor for me is the dual-sized tip. Having the choice of a thick line or thin one in a signle product makes packing my makeup bag super easy!

Rimmel London ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Liner

Both of these liners let me create some pretty looks for Spring and inspire me to playw ithc olour and shapes. The CoverGirl Ink It! by Perfect Point Plus eye liners offer bold colours to brighten my eye makeup, and the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Liner lets me get bold black liner in two different sizes.
Try something new this Spring with these awesome eye liners and let me know what you think of them!

Get Glam with the Gwen Stefani Nail Polish Collection from OPI

OPI has recently released a new celebrity collaboration with none other than Gwen Stefani, rocker chic and fashion icon. Gwen Stefani, lead singer of No Doubt, is one of the edgiest girls in the music business and with her successful L.A.M.B. clothing and fragrance lines it is no surprise she’s working with OPI on some of the coolest polishes for the season.

This collection is the first to feature Satin finish polishes, which dry to a really cool satin-matte texture. There are a few in the collection that have this finish, while others have a Creme Gloss or other texture. The seven limited edition shades in the collaboration is as follows:

Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., 4 in the Morning, In True Stefani Fashion, Push and Shove, and Over & Over A-Gwen.

The three colours I was most interested in were Hey Baby, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., and 4 in the Morning.

Hey Baby is a super bright pink that is a great middle ground between bubblegum girly pink and bold hot pink. It’s a Creme Gloss finish so it is super shiny and looks perfectly opaque in two coats. I don’t use a top coat with it since it is so glossy on it’s own.

Love.Angel.Music.Baby. is one of the Satin finish polishes in the collection. It is a pale gold with shimmer that looks super luxurious. It almost looks like one of the Liquid Sand polishes from OPI. but it doesn’t feel bumpy like those do. The best way to describe the texture of this polish is a cross between the Liquid Sand polishes and a matte polish.

4 in the Morning is a black Satin polish with some shimmer to it as well. It dries super quick and is very opaque. It’s a great go-to for something slightly different than a plain black polish.

All three of these are really great shades and the entire Gwen Stefani collaboration looks just as good. Way to go OPI!
