Are we ready for navy varnish on short nails? See some of the best options.

7 Sep

Navy varnish on short nails (to offset the bold colour) is a major autumn 2010 trend.

Here are some of the best navys available.

Yves Saint Laurent Nail Lacquer in Deep Blue


OPI’s Russian Navy

And Chanel Blue Satain.

Navy isn’t going to suit everyone, so maybe try aqua, which is a perfect if you’re just not ready to let go of the Summer or are heading abroad lounging pool side then try:

Nars shimmery Blue Lagoon.

Zoya’s Robyn, a little lighter than Nars, probably more turquoise.

Sephora’s 56 Electric Blue is the cheapest of the bunch and stays true to its name ‘electric’.

For intense saturation try O.P.I.’s No Room for the Blues.

Meow – Fetching Feline Finds for the eyes A/W 2010 Trend

2 Sep


Sleek hair, strong lips, contour under the cheekbone and feline kohl-rimmed eyes with winged lashes, oh how very A/W 2010.

I think the full feline craze is best left for the catwalks or brave sixteen year olds. I, myself, am trending more towards the sensual black eyeliner as perfected by the original sex bomb Brigitte Bardot, and perhaps I’ll play with a little feline flick for fun Saturday night antics.

Though I also adore how celebrities have interpreted the look, such as the beautiful Christina Hendrick who used light brown shadow to softly turn up the look.

And of course Kate Hudson, who nearly always gets it right.

Just like Nicole Richie who’s famous for her cats eyes

Bleached eyebrows – trend for a/w 2010

23 Aug

At the Bottega Veneta Spring 2010 RTW show in Milan the models’ eyes seemed to pop, not only because of their amazing glitter eye make-up (happy dance, glitter is back for a/w 2010) but also because their eyebrows had been bleached to a pale shade of blond, so much so that the Caucasian models looked as if there were eyebrow-less, focusing all the attention on their eyes.

The models in Miu Miu’s stunning new advertising campaign are also without brows.

The bleached eyebrows or no eyebrows has been seen in earlier seasons but it’s never been as strong as it is now.

Though I think you have to be incredibly beautiful to pull off this look and even at that it doesn’t always work.

Here’s how one of the most beautiful women in the world might look without brows – Angelina Jolie.

So, what do we think?

Will it become main-stream?
