OPI Coca Cola Nail Polish Collection

BREAKING NEWS is the announcement that OPI have joined forces with Coca-Cola Companies to create a very exciting nail colour collection. This is a huge win for those who are fans of the sugary drinks but can’t necessarily consume them in the amount they would like. Think of it this way, no amount of nail polish applied to your digits will cause you diabetes!  Continue Reading

OPI Liquid Sand Bond Girls Honey Ryder Swatch 1

I have a feeling I wasn’t the only one who had a big weekend. To ease back into the working week grind I thought we would take a look at one of my favourite nail lacquers right now. The Bond Girls collection by OPI were a 6-piece ensemble of Liquid Sand lacquers, the newest texture innovation from OPI. The matte finish is unique as it remains sparkly without a top coat.

Each hue is named after an iconic Bond girl from the James Bond 007 movies. I have chosen to show you Honey Ryder because it’s a beautiful colour to wear year round and goes beyond a standard gold lacquer. This shade reminds me of a glass of champagne – the bubbles reflected by the texture of the lacquer. It would be a perfect choice for the upcoming festive season if you aren’t keen to wear red and green.  Continue Reading

No offense to Mariah Carey but OPI have totally just blown their celebrity collaborations out of the water. Gwen Stefani …..

New Release Beauty Favourites August 2013

*BLINK* Did you see that? I think it was August. It just flew right past my face! It has been a jam packed month for me with the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo taking place, as well as a calendar full of beauty launches and media events. I have played my way through nearly 175 new products that launched in August, and that is excluding the fabulous new products I discovered at the expo. As always it was incredibly difficult to pick out the products that truly captured my attention. I have to say the month of August really did show off just how innovative the beauty market really is.

I hope you find something new to discover in this months best new beauty product launches. Continue Reading

Hair Expo Australia is one of my favourite ways to spend a long weekend. Each year the Australian and international hair industry comes together to put on a weekend of learning, demonstration and celebration. Taking up two massive halls at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, and countless convention rooms, the industry comes together and creates a vibe that can only be experienced to understand. The one word that comes to mind is unity. Of course every business and hairdresser are forever competing to be the best in their field, but on the weekend that is Hair Expo it is like there is no competition, just friendship and a place to enjoy what they love. What that means for me is a place where I feel in my element to explore beauty, and while Hair Expo is not a “shopping” expo and it is for trade only, it places me in a state of mind where I just want to spend. I want to try everything and anything. So at the few stands who were selling things that I didn’t already own, I bought some items that were on my wishlist. Here is what I hauled: Continue Reading

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
