Best Sparkling Nail Polishes for Christmas 2016

I don’t know what is going on with me but I am very into glitter and sequins lately. You may have seem my jumper if you follow me on Instagram.  And trust me, it is a big deal that I am wearing something like this, pretty much all my friends had to make jokes about it, even my parents were surprised when I saw them the other day.

“I have never seen you in sequins, like ever,” Mum was shocked.

“She is just old now,”  Dad replied. My Father just likes to tease me whenever he can.

But why all those talks? I just want to share the sparkling nail polishes which are new for this season which caught my eye. And these are not all the options, just the ones I like.

Holiday Gift Guide: Rodin and Oribe Luxury Lipsticks

What beauty related poduct can you get for a girl who already has it all? That is easy actually.  Get her a luxury lipstick. And we are talking not only luxury but also niche. We all know it is not only about the product itself, it is also about the sensations and the emotions.

Tom Ford lipstick is always a good idea. But most likely your beauty addict already has one or ten of those already. So surprise her with Rodin or Oribe. Yes, that is right. Those two brands now only do lipsticks, and not only.

When Art & Beauty Meet: MAC and NARS Collections

There is nothing I love more than a beauty collection which was inspired, or even better, a collaboration, with an artist/photographer/someone from the world of culture. So I was obviously excited to see these new collections from MAC x Helmut Newton and NARS x Sarah Moon.

MAC release  so many collections all the time, and the one which celebrates the work of Helmut Netwon really stood out to me. I have actually quite a few of his photos saved on my Pintetest. This is a small edition with carefully chosen products which  capture the photographer’s work perfectly.
