Nubar – Peacock Feathers Nail Polish

I happen to personally know a Peacock.  His uncreative name is Peacock and he lives with my Grandmother (long story) overseas.  Peacock likes to preen and peer at his reflection on shiny hub cabs.  Nothing lures him in like his own attractive image.  You might find yourself equally transfixed by your fingers with this aptly…

China Glaze Crackle Polish

I think I’m started to get saturated by the influx of Crackle (Shatter) polishes out on the market.  They’re everywhere  and this nail art trend isn’t showing signs of slowing down.  I looked at an OPI red crackle polish in a store today, swatched over white nail polish base and couldn’t help but think that…

Yellow Nail Polish – Zoya

I’m traveling overseas at the moment, but I’m still keeping up with my nail polish application.  Yellow seems to be quite popular at the moment albet frustratingly hard to wear.  Some yellow polish kind of creeps me out because it looks like you have stained old nails if you don’t find the correct shade.  It’s so…

Crackle Shatter Polish: OPI Silver Glitter

Crackle polish seems to be the it nail art item of the moment.  When it first came out earlier this year it was hard to snag a bottle, but now all the major nail polish brands are churning out their own versions of shatter lacquer and it’s hard to keep up! I was in Toronto…

Best green nail polish: Of this weekend

Zoya recently released their 2011 Intimate Spring collection and one polish in particular stood for me: Gemma.     It’s  hands down the best in this collection and a must buy in my opinion.  I’m not usually a green polish kind of girl, but this one really grabbed my attention because I haven’t seen anything like…

Dry Cuticle Chronicles – Qtica to the rescue

Dry Canadian winters can wreak havoc on your skin.  If you’re like me and frequently forget to wear gloves, then your hands take it especially hard.  A few years ago, while sitting in traffic, I happened to glance down at my nails and got roped into the compulsion to pick at my enticingly dry cuticles…
