Celebrity Nail Art Trend

Rihanna’s never been a wallflower, and her love of bold nail colors proves just that. If you want to join the Barbadian beauty in this green movement, paint your digits with Green-wich Village by OPI, a spearmint shade that’s sure to turn heads.

From Christina Applegate to Lauren Conrad, starlets are sporting shimmering shades of purple on the red carpet. To get this look, try Vernis Please! in Purple by Night, a limited-edition nail color by Givenchy.

Jennifer Lopez: Smoky Pearl

Striking the perfect balance between a trendy metallic and a classic pearl, Barielle Nail Color in Sneak a Peek is a favorite among A-listers like Jennifer Lopez and Blake Lively.

Zoya Gilda

Hi all!

Tonight I have another Zoya Sparkle for you: Gilda. Doesn't that remind you of the series that was on, years ago? Sabrina The Teenage Witch? Lol well it does to me. I used to watch it every time it was on and I loved it! Anyway, on to some pics :)

I did a little mattification (lol, is this a word?)

Please excuse the white flakes, my Essie MAY appears to be developing these.. Gilda looks pretty with a matte topcoat! Well that's no surprise since the others were great as well. It look like scales of a fish, or pink dragon hide. Hm. Interesting!

Application was good and Gilda needed three coats for opacity. All three coats dried pretty quick. You can really see the sparkles build up in intensity when you add the second and third layer :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Chanel Intermezzo

From the fall 2009 collection comes this white milky polish with pink shimmer. I have three coats and the nail line is still visible. One of the reasons why I am not a big fan of this polish. It is nothing special and a bit streaky. Not worth the price for me, but I am sure the sheer lovers out there will like it :)

Z podzimní kolekce roku 2009 je tenhle mléčně bílý lak s růžovými odlesky. Na fotkách mám tři vrstvy a pořád ještě prosvítá. To je i jeden z důvodů proč z tohodle laku nejsem moc nadšená. Nepřijde mi nijak extra úžasný a navíc ještě pruhuje. Jsem si ale jistá, že vyznavačky podobných laků budou slintat blahem :)
