Jason Wu releases nail colour collection with CND at Cult Beauty

I love Jason Wu’s catwalk aesthetic- his models are so striking, with clean lines, cats eyes and sharp jaws. His foray into varnish reflects his minimalist aesthetic, as you get a five piece set that highlights key colours in his collection. There’s a blood red shade, a baby pink and a taupe-y greige, as well as a base coat and a ‘Anna Effect’ top coat, which says it will create a ‘subtle, textured tweed-like finish’. I’m very tempted.. and we’ve just had payday!

Fergie looks lovely in LEGO at the Kids Choice Awards

OK, I know it was the Kids Choice Awards and all, but there’s no need for the lovely Fergie to pander to the ‘kid’ element is there? IS there??? Regardless, I LOVE this dress, it’s cute quirky and cool, and though Fergie *may* be to old to wear it she looks super hawt. I want one- I’d just be scared of the comfort level involved in sitting down!

Fergie’s makeup is amazing as well, I love the bright orange eye, and the nude face makes it look classy, not drag queeny. The black nail varnish adds a hint of rock chick, and the Lego bracelet, OMG, just pure love.

Friis & Company Soffi foot jewelry: Stylish or just strange?

I’m in two minds about these products. On one hand they’re highly unique and I do love something different; on the other hand they’re downright odd and I don’t know if I’d actually wear them. They’re called ‘Soffi foot jewelry’ and are from  Friss and Company. They consist of two leather strips with ribbons, decorated with beads and rhinestones and are meant to make the area between the leggings and the shoe look prettier. I think it’s a kinda cool way of making those one size fits all leggings (hey, we ALL have them) look a little more interesting, I’m just not sure the bling works in its favour. Would you wear them? I’m still torn…

Get these for 36.95 Euros here.

New Paisley Nail Wraps from Rebel Nails

There are a lot of nail wrap brands on the market at the moment, but my favourite have to be Rebel Nails. You get a great selection of style, from metallic to patterned, they last a loong time, AND they’re affordable. They’ve just released news of some new styles for summer, and they’re pretty nice to look at. They’re super easy to apply- stick, heat with a hairdryer and remove the excess with a nail file. I think the black versions are my favourite- something really retro and cool about them.

Belly Beauty trainer helps you blast ab fat.. maybe


This may be April Fools Day, but unbeliveably this product is NO JOKE. Yes, people the above device is really meant to help you achieve a slimmer silhouette. The idea is that you place both your feet in the Lower Stomach Beauty Trainer and then twist your body from side to side. I can appreciate that twisting like this *might* help your core muscles work, but the Belly Beauty trainer isn’t weighted and is really just an overpriced piece of tat that’s unlikely to alter your body. It also amuses me how they describe it as, ‘This stylish home exercise product won’t look out of place in your living room’,. Really- a giant fricking pink cushion WITH HOLES in it will look natural? Hmm, what’s in your living room…

Get it for $67 here. [via Book of Joe]

World’s most expensive Manicure?

Love a bit of bling on your nails? Well, I doubt you can afford the Cherish Me Diamond Manicure. Made using a selection of 10 carat diamonds, the image above would set you back $51,000. OK, you an start breathing now. You can enjoy this service in the Dorchester Hotel, London and I’m guessing it DEFINITELY comes with some free bubbly. One for wives of Arab Sheikhs, eh?

Zoya Mod Mattes Nail Varnish are to die for


Zoya’s latest offering has a definite sixties vibe to it, crossed with a Barbie inspired colour palette. There are three shades- a hot pink, lime green and sea blue which all offer full longlasting coverage- with a MATTE finish. That’s right, a full on MATTE attack. You use a base coat, but no top coat for the best effect and I love the look of this range. Who says Matte has to be dark and for winter only? Not Zoya, that’s for sure!

$8 a varnish from Zoya
