Christian Louboutin is so sure of himself, he’s confident people will pay $675.00 USD for a nail polish with his name on it. And he’s right. Those customers who are buying it say it’s a work of art. The label affirms this “Rouge Louboutin Nail Color transforms into a rare exquisite jewel to become ultimate object of desire… 1,500 hematite strass crystals hand applied with the utmost attention to details… Due to the intricate handcrafting of this unique object, Rouge Louboutin Starlight will be available in a limited worldwide quantity of 1,000 pieces.” So there you’ve got it. We guarantee if you get it you will be $675 poorer and CL will be the one strutting in his red sole heels to the bank getting richer and richer. The only way I’ll pay this much for a nail lacquer is if the designer guarantees it will stay on my nails for a year. Without chipping.
Every year Pantone chooses the color that will dominate how designers build their collections from makeup to home decor. In 2013 they chose EMERALD. For 2014 it was WILD ORCHID, and for 2015 it is MARSALA, which is a rich copper brownish red. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute says they chose this particular hue because “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.” This color will be seen everywhere. The good thing is that since it’s earthy it will look good on most people. I think it will be a huge hit in cosmetics and also in apparel, but if used as a metallic. As for the home the color has its limitations, and can be a bit dull. Still, I won’t take away it’s a great selection and a true beauty!
When it comes to waxing, this year the trend has been to have hair down there. From The New York Times to American Apparel many are finding it interesting and embracing the new perspective. American Apparel mannequins are getting shaggy with it. And The NYT states waxing completely may be seen as unattractive, “In certain corners of Manhattan, the bald look of the Brazilian has become déclassé, more suggestive of a naked Barbie doll or a reality television starlet than an organic lifestyle of cold-pressed juice and barre classes.” Celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Lady Gaga, and Gwyneth Paltrow have been open about loving their pubic hair. There’s even Pubic Hair Dyes to give your nether region some oomph (also available for men). Some women like to groom and style their V. Diaz urges women not to make a permanent change by Read more »

- Organic Coconut Oil or Pure Almond Oil (Make sure you’re not allergic to any of these two!)
- Dye Bottle (Also known as a Color Applicator Bottle.)
- Towel (I use the Turbie Twist, but any small towel will do.)
I use raw Coconut Oil (make sure is liquefied, keep it at room temperature). It can be any brand of your choice. If you don’t have CO handy, pure Almond Oil is also fine. You can use one or the other. I feel it is best doing this when the hair is dry. Pour some of the oil inside the dye bottle then apply it all over your scalp, focus on the areas where you get most dandruff, Read more »
