As promised yesterday, here is a sneak peak at OPI’s new collection for Fall (Spring for us southern hemisphere residents), Touring America. I did break the news about this collection back in March but all we had was a simple bottle shot of the collection. Now I can show you the official swatches you will see on those little plastic nails in stores, YAY!

I really do love the story behind this collection and the name says it all, Touring America. It has been a good 10 year dream of mine to do an American road trip, but until I can afford to do that, I can rejoice in the fact that this collection gives me a tiny piece of some great American landmarks.

Some of the colour names match their respective colours perfectly. For example, you have I Eat Mainely Lobster which really does look like the colour of lobster. Then you have Honk If You Love OPI (I do, I do!) which is a stunning dark grape colour, but I just don’t see how honking is related to purple. Of course I realise I am being too literal but that is an issue I battle with daily. Why can’t I just enjoy the fun?!?!

The Colours

The colours shown below, starting at the top right and zig-zagging down, are:

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
