Nails Inc. London in Mayfair Lane

 
As part of the 2013 Christmas Cracker Collection, Mayfair Lane is a stunning new addition to Nails Inc. This is a full-coverage, red glitter polish. Although the red is intense, it isn't bright and quite cool in comparison to most red shades.
 
As this is considered to be a nail topper used to accessorize your nails and bling up your polish, it's quite pigmented when worn alone. As you can see from the swatch, it looks like a full-coverage, red glitter polish. And when I originally swatched the above photo, I wore Mayfair Lane by itself.
 
Would I use this product again? As this product is great, it is not for me to wear on a daily basis. Would I recommend this nail product? Yes. As popular as this polish was in 2013, I haven't been able to find it online at all as it is sold out virtually everywhere. I'll update this review with a link when I discover one.

NOTD: January 22, 2017

So, I decided to paint my nails today in honor of the big game. Not quite Steelers yellow gold, but close enough. I used OPI Nail Lacquer in 'Towel Me About It' with a hint of Nails Inc. Snowglobe in 'New Globe Walk' and the Sally Hansen - I love Nail Art Studs Kit. I really love how my nails turned out today. By the way, the gold bangle by Kara Ross/Unleashed World

Get the nails: Rihanna at the 2016 VMAs

The beautiful Rihanna continues to prove why she unstoppable. With two performances down and two more to go, Rihanna is really blowing up the spotlight tonight at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. As her outfit, makeup and hair slays, her nails really looked amazing. In fact, the iconic pop star teamed up with celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees for a haute nail look.

“Rihanna will be on stage multiple times during this year’s VMA’s,” Rihanna's manicurist, Kimmie Kyees shared. “We wanted to find a color that would match any outfit and makeup changes she may have throughout the show– so we chose a beautiful mauve color with a subtle shimmer that looks gorgeous against her skin tone,” she added.
 
So, is it possible to get Rihanna's nails at-home? Absolutely.
 
According to Kyees, Rihanna’s nails were filed into a narrow, pointy stiletto shape and then polished with Red Carpet Manicure’s newest formula – the instant gel manicure. This polish requires no base or top coat, which is amazing. For Rihanna's nails, Kyees used the Red Carpet Manicure Red Carpet Ready 1-Step LED Gel Polish in Hopeless Romantic, a stunning mauve with a shimmer finish.
 
Kyees proceeded to brush on the color, cured it for about 30 seconds and then the iconic Rihanna was ready for what should be one of RiRi’s most iconic VMAs yet.

Congratulations! You have just recreated Rihanna's nails for the 2016 Video Music Awards. #VMAs

Love the skin you are in this Summer with the Beauty Infusion from NeoCell

Beauty Infusion by NeoCell.
Collagen constitutes for 30% of protein in the human body. One of the best collagen supplements in the world today is definitely the Beauty Infusion by NeoCell. So, what is it exactly? It is a refreshing, all-natural blend that promotes radiant beauty. Radiant beauty so powerful that it starts within before working its way out. As you may or may not be already aware, when collagen levels decline in the body, this can lead to loss of elasticity in the skin, the hair and the nails. This is all part of intrinsic aging. And when we are exposed to environmental stresses including DNA damage and oxidative stress this is extrinsic aging. Supplementing with Beauty Infusion works to deliver the right amount of collagen and recapture that luminous glow from the inside-out.

Each Beauty Infusion supplement contains 6,000 mg of Hydrolyzed NeoCell Collagen Type 1 & 3 as well as 120 mg of Vitamin C, 50 mg of Hyaluronic Acid, 50 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid, and 24 mg of Potassium. On top of that, the Beauty Infusion is low in calories and in carbohydrates as it is flavored with natural fruit juice powders and a Sweet Yara blend of Stevia and Erythritol.

Currently, NeoCell offers three unique Beauty Infusion flavors. These flavors include: Appletini, Tangerine Twist and Cranberry Splash. Although they taste great alone, they are an incredible addition to any smoothie.

Collagen also works to restore joint deterioration, heal wounds, repair leaky gut syndrome, cleanse your liver, help with muscle recovery, boost your metabolism and even reduce cellulite and stretch marks. Collagen gravitates to new skin cells and works to correct, prevent and repair any type of skin damage by promoting tissue regeneration. This connective protein also helps with mental health too. And on top of all of these amazing remedies and uses, Collagen gives your skin both strength and shape. Amazing right?

Beauty Infusion is a healthy supplement that not only your taste buds will crave, but your skin will too. Also, it is free of synthetic ingredients and GMOs. You can find the Beauty Infusion by NeoCell at your nearest NeoCell retailer such as The Vitamin Shoppe, GNC, Whole Foods, Sprouts, Vitamin World, Plum Market and more. Feel pretty today, feel and look even more beautiful tomorrow.

NARS Nail Polish in Disco Inferno

 
NARS Nail Polish in Disco Inferno. It's an iridescent green with mauve optics. The green is quite stunning and modestly cool yet lighter than expected. To be honest, despite being different I still love it. My only con would be that this polish could have been a little more pigmented. The color payoff isn't the greatest, as it takes quite a few quotes to achieve the desired shade. In spite of this particular weakness, however, this polish is relatively long-lasting.
 
NARS is currently having a great sale. If you spend $50, you will get free shipping + a free sample. Want to know more? Simply click here today.

Sephora OPI Jewelry Topcoat in Not Your Average Turquoise

 
When Sephora marketed this jewelry topcoat as being Not Your Average Turquoise they were not lying. This stunning glitter top coat truly is a force to be reckoned with, as it is extremely pigmented and stands out. The optics in this polish truly give your nails the right about opaque, which I really enjoy.
 
Although I wore this alone, it is primarily recommended as a topcoat to your favorite polish. It can also work as a nail d├ęcor. As much as love all things bling, this isn't a glitter so it is a bit chunky and tends to hang on the nails if you don't apply a topcoat. It is very crucial though to use a non-matte formula so it doesn't change the formulation and glitter of the product.
 
This jewelry topcoat and amazing Sephora addition is part of their recent collaboration with OPI and is definitely one of my favorite nail effects I have discovered. I am looking forward to trying the rest of them I purchased, as they are currently on sale at Sephora as I type this.

Estee Lauder's Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Black Plum

I am always finding myself discovering new nail polishes. One of my most recent discoveries is Estee Lauder Nail Lacquer in Black Plum. It is truly amazing. A little goes a long way, but what I loved most about this particular polish is the fact that I didn't need a top coat and it lasts longer than most polishes. Plus, aside from being long-lasting it's extremely pigmented which can be hard to find in a polish these days. The color is fantastic and the color pay-off even more so. Definitely a new favorite.
