NARS Blush & Bronzer Duos for Sephora.

NARS Bronzers are some of the very best in the industry - ever.  I think I am on my third Laguna Bronzer. I use this iconic shade multiple times a week. Pairing this bronzer with NARS' best selling blush shades is genius. NARS has created four duos exclusively for Sephora this year. These duos are essential when wanting to achieve the ultimate sun-kissed look.

NARS Blush & Bronzer Duo - $41.00 each

Delicate bright pink
Diffused brown with golden shimmer

Sparking pink champagne
Diffused brown with golden shimmer


Peachy pink with golden shimmer
Diffused brown with golden shimmer


Flirty sheer peach
Diffused brown with golden shimmer

The only problem I have with these duos is that they are just so hard to resist and I know I am going to walk out of Sephora with at least two of them. I am probably the only girl who hasn't owned Orgasm blush, so I must have it at least in this duo once and for all. I am also thinking the duo with Desire would be great this summer with my darker faux tan.

Check out the NARS Blush & Bronzer Duos at Sephora, beginning May 1, 2013.

Couture Gel Nail Polish Kit.

Are you as hooked on gel manicures as I am? I rarely paint my nails anymore because I just can't deal with the drying time and changing my polish every 3 - 5 days. I know! Nail polish just doesn't last on my nails and I have been getting gel manicures on the regular for a few years now. But they are costly. A gel manicure costs me $45 + tip.

I have done my gel manicure at home too, but I will be honest; the systems I have used in the past are not salon quality as far as color selection and lamps go. I am thrilled to report that I did find a salon quality at-home gel manicure polish kit and it is not limited in any way. This is the Couture Gel Nail Polish Kit.

Couture Gel Nail Polish Kit

Couture Gel Nail Polish is made without the use of harmful chemicals, and they have over 75 stunning shades to choose from in various finishes  like shimmer, creamy, sparkle and glitter. Couture Gel Nail Polish lasts up to three weeks, and is extremely chip resistant. I get 3 weeks wear out of this polish and I have every time I have used it.

Couture Gel Nail Polish Kit

The Couture Gel Nail Polish Kit includes everything you need for a salon-quality gel nail polish manicure at home:

  • Your choice of 3 Couture Gel Nail Polish colors
  • Plus base coat and top coat
  • A professional 36-watt Salon Quality Curing Lamp (big enough for your entire hand, unlike others)
  • Instructional DVD and brochure
  • Zippered carrying case for easy storage
  • Salon nail care kit

There is a new Couture Gel Polish collection for spring that came out since I received my kit and it contains 28 brand new shades, perfect for spring. I need to get my hands on a few.

  • Mardi Gras
  • Fairytale Fling 
  • Pillow Talk 
  • Tiffany's Secret 
  • 5th Avenue 
  • Naughty-cal 
  • Sweet Cheeks 
  • Million $ Tweet 
  • Skinny Dip 
  • Lavender Lace 
  • Off the Shoulder 
  • Milano 
  • Sweet Caress 
  • Tres Chic 
  • Come On Barbie! 
  • Glam Squad 
  • St Tropez 
  • Seduce Me 
  • Dance 'til Dawn 
  • London's Fog 
  • Pretty Little Liar 
  • Teal the Show 
  • Aloe-Very 
  • Share My Yacht? 
  • High Maintenance 
  • Stay-cation 
  • Red Carpet 
  • Vintage Denim

You have to be very careful to follow the directions carefully. I highly suggest watching the DVD. If you do not "top off" or "cap" the tips of your nails in each step, air and water will get beneath the nail and cause the color to peel off.

The cost for the entire kit Couture Gel Nail Polish Kit retails for just $129. I can't even get 3 gel manicures at the salon for that price. Check it out online at couturegelnailpolish.com.
