Nail of the Week: Sally Hansen Girl Flower

This isn't a new design but it's one of my favorites from SH' nail polish strips collection. It's perfect for a spring-into-summer look!

Nail of the Week: Revlon Sheer Seafoam

I usually don't have the patience for sheer polishes because it takes so many layers to build up some actual color payoff. This shade, from Revlon's Spring/Summer 2012 limited edition Escapism collection, was worth the effort.

It took me 6 heavy layers to get it as dark as I wanted, but I love the result—it has a beautiful glasslike quality and it's so glossy that no topcoat was needed. Teals are hot right now and this shade is a great choice if you want a toned-down look.

Sally Hansen's New Pedicure Nail Polish Strips

This is the first pedicure collection I've seen for SH's blockbuster nail polish strips. These are very cute and hopefully as easy to apply as the manicure strips.

Retro Nails: Revlon Cherries in the Snow

It's been a while since I've done one of my “Old Skool” posts paying tribute to a makeup item that has stood the test of time.

Revlon's Cherries in the Snow was introduced in 1952 which means women have been seducing men with this classic red shade for fifty years. Cherries is a true red, just slightly on the pink side. It's outlived several other longstanding Revlon nail classics including Wine with Everything and Love That Pink.

Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips: More Spring Designs

SH is bringing out the new designs faster than I can keep up. I make a point of showing them on my blog because they're such a hot item right now and I get so much positive feedback from my readers whenever I post the latest.

I first spotted this collection a few weeks ago but it took a few tries to find a location that had them all in stock. Finally found one yesterday (Ulta in Peabody Massachusetts). Some great picks for Spring here—I especially like Good Morning Glory.

Nail of the Week: Easter Peeps

I'm still getting the hang of applying these Sally Hansen nail polish strips, but here's my best effort. This adorable Easter print is called Not a Peep.
