Beauty Blogger Beauty Storage Essentials

There are only two types of people I will ever consider taking storage advice from – 1. the professional de-clutter experts on those hoarders TV shows, and 2. beauty bloggers. I’m yet to meet a beauty blogger who keeps their belongings and space to a minimum, but they’re some of the most organised and well-maintained individuals you can come across. When I found out I would be moving into a new house my first thought was, “NEW BEAUTY STORAGE!” (you’ll understand why after you see this).

I asked my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to tell me which beauty storage product do they rely on most.

Readers, my beautiful lovely readers. Today I am excited to reveal that a group of amazing bloggers, including moi (thats ‘me’ in French … I think?) have come together to bring you an awesome contest.

If you read my blog, you would know how much I love Sephora. I love it. I would live in a Sephora if I could. As it turns out, my fellow beauty blogging pals feel just they same way, so we wanted to all chip in to share that addiction with one of our awesome readers.

Long story short …. you could win a $500 GIFT VOUCHER!!! Yes, even if you live in outback Broome in Western Australia, you could win this awesome prize.

In the lead-up to Cosmoprof North America I was excited for many reasons. The brands, the people, the products and everything in-between. However, all my excitement for those elements of my trip to the US were NOTHING in compared to my excitement for meeting Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. This was not something I had planned all along. In fact, I was extremely lucky to even have the chance to see the woman. But, before I tell you about that, let’s cover off a few key points.

Who Is Suzi Weiss-Fischmann?

As stated in the title, Suzi is the Executive Vice President and Artistic Director for OPI. That is her official title. Unofficially, she is “The First Lady of Nails”. Suzi is the lone solider who creates every single OPI Nail Lacquer shade. That is a HUGE task, but one she has executed perfectly for about 20 years.

In short, Suzi IS nail colour.

The Interview

Suzi (I feel we are buddies now so surely first names are appropriate?) has been on my list of ‘Love To Meet One Day’ for about 10 years. Realistically, I knew it was going to be highly unlikely to happen, but my pursuit to meet my business idols never wavers. In this case, my success was thanks to one very special lady ….

One of the many companies displaying their exciting new launches at Cosmoprof North America was CND (Creative Nail Design, Inc.). What engaged my interest in particular was the addition of 6 new shades in the Shellac range.

Shellac has been everywhere and is still super hot, but you may remember that one thing I felt let Shellac down a bit was the lack of colour variety. Yes, all the colours are layerable and can make new colours, but I felt like the colours were rather simple and plain. I wanted pizzazz. Well, CND must have heard my pleas because pizzazz is what I got!

The New Colours

Did you know you can do textures with Shellac? I didn’t. For the first time CND have released a Shellac colour with a bit of texture, Zillionaire. Ok, so it isn’t texture you can feel ….. Continue Reading
