Hed Kandi joined forces with Models Own to create a new exclusive collection of nail polishes inspired by the party capital of the world, Ibiza!
“With this year being Hed Kandi’s 10 year anniversary on the Balearic party island, the range of five polishes reflects the Hed-turning, fashionforward glamour that the fabulous brand brings to all their events on The White Isle. The ‘Hed Kandi collection’ instantly brings to life the recognisable glamorous girls synonymous with the brand, transporting you to the jet-set global dance floor. With three of the brightest Models Own shades and two premium glitters making up the collection this embodies the whole essence that Ibiza has to offer.”
There are 5 colors in this set:
- Balearic Cool: a lovely aquamarine that will remind you of the waters by Formentera.
- Hedonist: a sizzling hot bright coral that in this picture kind of reminds me of a more orange version of O.P.I’s Red Lights Ahead… Where?
- Beach Party: a sunny yellow polish inspired by the world famous sunsets on the White Isle.
- Disco Heaven: a glittery gold nail polish that seems to be infused with blue green iridescent sparkle.
- Ibiza Mix: a gorgeous multi-coloured sparkle that will surely catch anybodies eye when you’re out club hopping.
I’m loving all these brights coming out right now and I have got to say that I really like this little set! What do you all think?
Don’t these just look great? They are the 12 brand new Salon effects nail polish strips by Sally Hansen that were designed by Avril Lavigne!
They will be out this April so if you want these, keep your eye out for them next month!
Do you have a favorite? I have to admit that I actually like all of them! I love wearing nail polish strips on my toes as they’re quick, stay on great and just look fabulous!
I’ve been aware of this new set by O.P.I. for a little while, but until now I just haven’t been very motivated to post it. Not because it’s not cute, it’s adorable really, but man I just do not do pink or red or huge glitter and this little set has all of this and nothing else.
What am I talking about you ask? The new O.P.I. Minnie Mouse Summer 2012 collection of course!
There are just four colors in this collection, two reds, two pinks. And they will be available June 1, 2012.
Here is another picture and a quick description of the colors:
Nothin’ Mousie ‘bout it. - This looks like a transparent pink jelly with glass fleck shimmer and little white or possibly light pink heartshaped glitter pieces.
I’m All Ears. - A magenta shimmer that looks more red than pink in the display picture so I am not sure what to think about this one yet.
If You Moust You Moust. - This one looks like a typical bubblegum pink.
The Color of Minnie. - The signature Minnie Mouse cherry red you know from her cute little polkadot dress.
What do you think of this collection? Are you underwhelmed like I am? Or are you in fact a big Disney or Minnie or even pink and reds fan and will you be getting these as soon as they hit the shops?
- Edited to add the first bottle shot I’ve found of these online. (Source the O.P.I.’s official twitter page)
- Edit number two: BeautyJunkies has swatches up!
The next Essence collection was just revealed here in the Netherlands via a press release and they have picked a very cute theme this time that fits Spring that at the makes you long for summer: Fruity!
This collection does not only have 5 lovely polishes but also some other nice nail related goodies, keep reading and I will introduce you to all of it.
First up though, I have five cute and fruity nail polishes to show you, namely:
- 01 Banana Joe,
- 02 Peach Beauty,
- 03 Very Cherry,
- 04 One Kiwi A Day…
- 05 Mashed Berries.
As you can see in the close up pictures on the right (click it to enlarge) there are 2 creams and three glittery polishes in this mini collection. And I have to say, I do like the little touch of using different types of glitters for the polishes. The Kiwi green one has a different glitter shape than the Cherry and Berries ones, which is a nice little detail I think.
That’s not all in the nail department by the way as they are also releasing a cute little set of fimo cane slices that looks like sliced fruit called “Nail Fruits” that comes with its own nail glue. Because the slices are of course a bit thicker than say a striper line or some dots you make with a naildotter they have added a Nail Art sealing topcoat called “Stay Fruity” to the collection.
Now we come to something I am quite excited about: With this collection they’re also releasing a scented topcoat called ”Smells like strawberry…“ that… you guessed it; smells like fresh strawberries! I am so going to have to chase this one down because I am very much into fruity scents and how fun will it be to have a yummy scent coming from your nails all day?
The Essence Fruity collection will be exclusively for sale at Kruidvat & Trekpleister from halfway April until May 2012 here in the Netherlands.
So, what are your thoughts on this collection? I myself will probably only grab the topcoat but I do think that if I like it that I will grab several.
