Hot on NARS
Beloved beauty brand, NARS Cosmetics, is collaborating with designer Pierre Hardy to bring rich, vibrant colors to counters this summer. The collection includes six nail polish pairings (wear one shade on your fingers and the other on your toes) and two beautifully bright blushes to ensure you’ll be seen this season. The nail polishes, which range from a soft lilac lavender to a bold deep navy, will retail for $29 per pair starting May 1. Until then, shop their summer collection, filled with shocking shades like a red-coral lipgloss and electric orange nail polish They go on sale at NARScosmetics.com today.
Born for This
Hayley Williams, the lead singer of Paramore, recently teamed up with MAC Cosmetics to create a four-piece collection, on sale now! The limited-edition product lineup includes a face powder, eye shadow, lipstick, and nail lacquer, each in bright, notice-me hues that all scream Hayley Williams. I personally can’t wait to snag the Sounds Like Noise Lipstick, a super bright orange in MAC’s famous creamy formula, which I know I’ll wear all summer long. (P.S. check out Still Into You, off of Paramore’s new eponymous album, which just dropped earlier this month.)
Repurpose Nail Polish
When I was seven, I painted my computer mouse in glittery pink nail polish (my parents were not pleased). I’ve since grown up but still love finding new uses for my expansive lacquer collection. I was so excited to see that the ladies in Glamour’s beauty department rounded up five cute ways to use nail polishes—off your fingers. I immediately pinned the decorating thumbtacks idea for future reference; it’s so effortless but will make all the difference in making a bulletin board super chic. Which of their ideas are you dying to try?
