I'm wearing Frenzy today. It's another oddball color. It's not quite taupe, grey or lavender, but a weird hybrid. I like it. It's a classic neutral, but just different enou to be interesting and awe bit edgy.


They are now selling Sky-Line in the US. Did you get the email??


Shhh! Nobody tell my aunt after all her work tracking it down.

I want one of the eyshadows. I'm completely poor until November though, so I'll just admire photos.

While I have major issues with the statement that these are based on 'Gothic literature' (do not get me started), the new a-england's are sooo lovely looking:

The new Pretty Serious collection is out too. I don't normally care about pinks, at all, but I'm really loving Claris

I think they are Gothic in the listening-to-Bauhaus-while-writing-bad-poetry-about-pain sense.

Does anyone know if the Orly Slip It Off Extra Strength remover is vegan? I'm 99% sure it looks vegan but I can't find any info on their site.

jessilikewhoa: Claris is delightful! I'm also loving the a-england series, interrobang?!. Gah, Jane Eyre!

I like these! They are kind of, safe though, or something. Nothing new.

Also, what polish do you think the FLOTUS is wearing?

I feel like she's too classy for OPI.

But has working class values that would align with buying OPI!


Last week I did a fast mani using SC's "I Love You" a glittery purple. I just did polkadots with an accent nail painted solid. It was kinda crepe but fun. The manager at the gym last night asked if I use sharpies on my nails? Huh? I was a bit taken aback...I am not in junior high anymore.

True. I wouldn't be surprised though if it was Chanel or some other 3/5 free brand, since she is very eco-minded too.

Has anybody seen a swatch of Butter London's Fishwife yet? They posted a shot of the bottle on their FB feed, but I really need to see it on someone!

I could see MObama rockin' a zoya. Or maybe a Deborah Lippman or RBL?? It's be neat if she wore something like OCC.

It was a gel from a brand I've never heard of
http://fashionista.com/2012/09/michelle ... -revealed/
I think it was hella tacky that OPI sent out a press release suggesting it was their product when they didn't know for sure. I get that that's how advertising works, but I still think it was gross.

And I second the request for Fishwife swatches if anybody spots them. The bottle shot looks right up my alley.

Extra gross, China Glaze just posted this on their facebook "Get the Look: First Lady Michelle Obama's Gray Manicure at last night's Democratic National Convention featuring China Glaze - Sea Spray"
It's phrased to be deliberately misleading.

How hard would it be to say something like "If you liked MIchelle Obama's manicure from last night, we have X,Y, and Z polishes in similar colors and finishes that you will love."

I have no idea why this is making me so angry, only that it is. Mayhaps it's that I'm PMDD like mad right now and quit smoking recently enough that I may still be going through nicotine withdrawal, but whatever it is I'm just miffed. You should probably just ignore me while I seethe in the corner.

That doesn't seem right, jessilikewhoa, but I don't blame anyone from trying to capitalize on it. The site the blog linked to led me to see the Fall 2012 shellac colors, and they are pretty gorgeous. I wonder if that salon I go to wil get them. I think they're only for pre-order currently. Midnight swim looks really pretty! http://www.cnd.com/press-releases/winter-wonderful-6-new-cnd-shellac-power-polish-shades

Urgh. Fishwife? Fishwife?! I know I've said before about hating the Butter London names, but that is just WHAT.

Most of her clothes are actually super expensive. She wears tons of Jason Wu, among others. She wears stuff like J Crew every once in a while so nobody really notices her $5000 jackets (she wore that to an Olympics event) and $1000 sweaters. In fact, she and Ann Romney share a few of the same favorite designers.

I think it's great that she promotes the up and coming American designers. I do wish she would help a bit more overtly with supporting the garment district though.

I haven't seen yet who designed the dress she wore last night; that was gorgeous. She looked amazing.

It's a pretty pejorative term. Essentially, a harsh/coarse/vulgar/shrewish harpy. Clearly my signature varnish.

Post subject:  Re: What nail polish are you wearing?

Aha. She was wearing Tracy Reese, so the dress was around $488. That was an amazing dress for under $500; it looked couture. Nice job FLOTUS.

(if you wear a weird size, you can often find Tracy Reese dresses for under $200 at Saks end of season sales)
