Mani Monday!

So you ask, a foundation for your nails? I say yes! Butter London has a base coat in a satin nude tone. I think it would be universally flattering. You can wear it underneath your nail polish to create a flawless application or you can wear it on its own. Above I have just the nail foundation on (4 coats mind you) with no top coat. Now if you want the above opaque finish you will need multiple coats, there is no question. It will take some time to dry. But that can't really be a complaint because the purpose is to use it as a base coat not as a standard nail polish.
This nail foundation is not a necessity but it does work nicely and I like that it can be worn on its own. It has a satin finish meaning it has a little shine but appears almost matte.

You can find it here and check out the promo code below for a free makeup bag with your order!

Friday Favorite!

I am so happy to introduce you to my new friend! She is by far the most powerful blow dryer I have ever used, hands down. If you are in the market for a new one definitely check it out here

The speed at which my hair dries is super quick and I feel like there is so much more body, lift, and shine when I am finished. It has two heat settings, a cool shot and two speed settings. This thing is a beast! Rarrrr!

Christian Louboutin Classic Red Rouge Nail Polish!

For those of you that don't know, I love shoes. Christian Louboutins have always been the epitome of sexy in my opinion. I am lucky to own a pair and although very sexy, they are not very comfortable.... Sigh. Now Mr. Louboutin is releasing a range of nail polishes and I cannot contain my excitement! I can now wear Loubi's everyday! Now all we need is a Loubi red lipstick to match. (hint hint, Christian!)

Each nail polish retails for $50, which for those of you always wanting a piece of Christian's collection this is your chance at just a fraction of the cost of a pair of shoes or a handbag. The packaging is all the class and seduction you would expect from the Louboutin brand in a lusty little bottle.

Red rouge is available for preorder now at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus. You can also be notified when it is available from Sephora as well. They will be ready to ship out on August 6th and the rest of the 30 shades will be launched on August 31st. (That taupe gray looks gorgeous!)

Make Up For Ever Artist Eyeshadows - Fall 2014

O.M.G. That is what I said when I saw the selection of new eyeshadows Make Up For Ever has on Sephora's website. They have released a total of 210 (yes 210!) new shades! MUFE has seriously added every color of the rainbow and every texture and finish too. Textures available range from matte to diamond. They retail at $21 an eyeshadow. I plan on ordering way more than a few to swatch and play with. I think there are probably 50 already on my wish list. Swoon!

a very small sample of the shades available!

These are eyeshadow pans only so you can add them to your zpalettes and create your own on the go kit or MUFE now has 1-3 spot eyeshadow cases you can add to your order for $1.00 each. I personally like to have larger palettes but the smaller ones are definitely a great option for travel.

Sephora's website states the shadows have a gel powder consistency. That sounds really interesting and I love a creamy eyeshadow!

Check them out here.

What do you guys think?
