Sally Nails It

so i was sent this article in my email. it's an article from's beauty counter blog about Tracy Reese's sixth (sixth?) nail polish collection for beauty brand Sally Hansen. Where have I been for the past 5 collections? And do I care??? No. This is just a great way for designers to make more money by making us consumers think that wearing their nail polish is like wearing their garments. lol. I don't know what to think here...and Tracy Reese? Nail polish is nail polish no matter what brands you use...

my favorite: Rescue Beauty Lounge makes really fun, and sometimes even some, "What, that's a real nail polish color?" polishes! My cheapie favs (only because i can buy them at warehouse prices) are OPI & Essie. NYC makes cheaaaaap polishes if you want to try fun colors for under $1
photo and story creds:
ps: I saw they have an article on Bobbi's makeup class (well they call it an academy...) at Emerson College in Boston....I will save that one for analyzing another day. I have lots to say on that topic.... :)


  1. yeah so true that we don't really care :P if its their sixth or sixtieeth (how do you spell that -_-) I'm so up for cheap nailpolish, after trying out Chanel - looks like it chips off either way if it's $1 NYC or damned Chanel.

  2. Interesting content.

    Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

    However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.
