IMG_8802
Summer is officially here! Let that sun shine baby! After enduring many cold snowy months this year, all of us here in Vancouver are more than happy to soak in the sunshine while we can. Along with the beautiful weather, we can’t help but get excited over all of the fun summer beauty products that have begun to hit the shelves. My mom, Laura and I both love to change up our nail polish colours constantly. During the Summer, we are all about the bright, bold shades – the brighter, the better we say! Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure Summer 2017 Collection is full of absolutely stunning shades that are perfectly designed for the Summertime.

The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Summer 2017 Collection contains 6 stunning shades. The shades are not actually new releases, they are re-promotes. The collection features a variety of shades that are sure to suit every event this summer – everything from your classic light pink with a hint of sheen (Tulips are Talking), a lovely soft matte lavender (Grape Gatsby) to a fun and daring turquoise (Ripple in Time) for the adventurous!

Like all of Sally Hansen’s polishes, the formula is amazing. We love the quality of Sally Hansen’s polishes and have been buying and recommending them for years. Complete Salon Manicure polishes provide 7 benefits in 1 bottle! You get your base coat, growth treatment, color, top coat, shiny finish, chip resistance and strengthener all in one bottle. Amazing right?! They also contain Keratin Complex for stronger, healthier nails ensuring chip-free polish for ten days.

Grape Gatsby‘ is by far our favourite shade from the collection. Some may call us a little biased though because our sweet, sweet baby cat is actually named Gatsby. 😉 We may be quite partial to the name itself. However whether or not this polish is named Gatsby, it is indeed an absolutely beautiful shade.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy Collection

IMG_4457

As much as we love our nail polishes, with all of the numerous polish brands in the market, it takes something different and result driven to make us really take notice and get excited at this point.

Sally Hansen recently launched their new Color Therapy polish line. We were immediately impressed with the stunning colour selection but we didn’t get truly excited until we actually got to try them out and wear them. Give them the true test.

Honestly, we’re not kidding, we were shocked after the very first coat at just how incredible these polishes glide on. You don’t have to use a base coat, simply apply the colour directly onto bare nails. The polish consistency is very light and yet the colour is deeply pigmented and covers perfectly. It dries quickly and is chip and fade proof for up to 10 days. We applied 2 coats of the colour and 1 top coat and it actually does last 7-10 days on average. We both have been wearing the polishes constantly and forever comparing each others nails and talking non stop about the crazy wearability they provide.

Sally Hansen partnered up with Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole to create their new Color Therapy polish collection. Consisting of 33 glamourous, vibrant shades from elegant sheer nudes, deep and understated corals & pinks, dazzling metallics and bold rich tones of purples, greens and blues. There is something to suit everyone’s fancy.

Sally Hansen is calling this new polish launch “Color That Cares While You Wear“. These polishes are infused with nourishing argan, acai, and evening primrose oils that condition the nails as you wear the polish. 

We also love that these polishes have a slight fragrance to them, thanks to the oils. They have a faint fresh, almost fruity scent to them. Definitely a more pleasant smell than the typical harsh chemical scent that is so common in nail polishes!

KISS Fall/Holiday Collection 2016

IMG_4062g

Recently we were invited to an exclusive preview of KISS‘ upcoming Fall & Holiday Collections. The holiday season consisting of Halloween, which means Fall, aka loads and loads of pumpkins (Natasha’s personal favourite), then Christmas aka countless parties and of course New Years Eve, the biggest glitziest party of the year. The party season is fast approaching so we were excited to see what’s new. Plus a party in Yaletown Vancouver, well, count us in. Always fun!

IMG_4056

At every good party there are always a few key essentials. A great cocktail and h’odeurve selection always sets the tone. KISS nailed it with their ‘spooky Halloween’ cocktail menu. The appetizers were also AMAZING. Natasha, being the obsessed pumpkin everything & anything lover was more then thrilled when the pumpkin macarons were served.

Even though I probably haven’t dressed up for Halloween since, like forever, I find these Halloween nails and nail art kind of adorable. I might not be a stick in the mud this year and at least do my nails! Natasha can hardly wait to use the Halloween nail art. She was going to put them on the night after the event. Which I have to say was in August. A whole 2 1/2 months before Halloween. I highly advised her against that. IMG_4043G
Kiss always has the best Halloween nail art each year. We love these new designs for 2016. I can’t wait to wear these babies come October! – Natasha

KISS Lashes

We don’t wear false eye lashes a whole lot. But when we go to events or special occasions we love to go all out.  False eye lashes can make your eyes pop more than even a whole lot of mascara on your real lashes. It’s funny because you think you have alright lashes after loading them up with mascara, then you see the difference after you put on false lashes. No comparison. 

At the event their makeup artist applied some of the BLOOMING Lashes from their newest lash launch on each of us. For Natasha she chose the Camelia but cut them in half and applied them onto the outer corners. Natasha already has really long lashes and big eyes so these just opened her eyes that much more and gave her that extra va va voom

On myself she choose the Tulip set, which I really liked because I want that false lash look without it looking all that false. You know? It’s just the right look for me.

KISS lashes come in a huge array of styles and there’s no lack of choices. Their newest lash collection, ‘Blooming Lash‘ are very beautiful and have what’s called multi-angle technology. Very scientific word meaning there is actually 3 varying layers with tapered ends on each lash to replica real, full, fluffy lashes.

How gorgeous are these new white/gold Gel Fantasy nails? Absolutely perfect for a New Years party!

Kiss is the largest manufacturer and distributor of professional nail products in the world. They offer an incredible selection of nail styles and nail products. In fact we’re big fans of their Professional Manicure Kit. You have to check it out.

We haven’t really been ones to wear these types of artificial nails in the past. But after being at the Kiss event and watching their professional nail experts applying them, we were shocked at how pretty they looked on. They look so different in the package compared to on the nail. The actual end result was impressive. Seeing is believing. They looked like salon quality. We can’t wait to try them out at our next event.

IMG_6014gMICHAEL KORS NAIL LACQUER in shade SENSATION ($20)

Sensation‘ is actually the first nail lacquer that we’ve tried by Michael Kors. The formula is on the thinner side however it builds nicely, isn’t streaky and only takes two coats.

Sensation is a beautiful vibrant, orange-red shade. One of those shades that works during both the Winter and Summer months. Since we’ve got it, at least one of us has been wearing it on our nails at any given time. Absolutely stunning!

Happy Holidays Beauties!
