Having Rubellite Dreams with Ninja Polish

This is one sexy shade of red. Rubellite Dreams is from NinjaPolish.com's Gemstone Dreams collection. The red is true, not too blue not too orange, just stunning. It's kissed by silver shimmer that is more obvious in the bottle but offers depth once on the nail. This is not a glittery polish but one that glistens. The pro brush made of an easy, streak-free application and it only required 2 coats for full opacity. 5Free it retails for $9 and lasted 3 full days before the first chip appreared. I can't wait to wear it again! I rate Rubellite Dreams 4.5 stars out of 5. Love love love.

Catherine Malandrino for Kohls DesigNation

It's funny. I received a $25 gift card to Kohls for Christmas 2011 and was a bit perplexed; I've never shopped Kohls. So I waited and waited... thinking I'd end up using it for new bath towels. Then I heard that Catherine Malandrino was joining DesigNation and knew that *this* is why I have been holding on to the gift card, not boring bath towels!

Pleated Ponte Dress is created in charcoal and is surprisingly very well constructed and heavy weighted. Now, I know why it was $70! The button detail down the left side covers the snap entry/exit which runs down the dress until the pleated bottom. The dress lies flat and keeps it's shape so you do not have to worry about shifting and revealing. Made in Vietnam of 70% polyester, 25% rayon and 5% elastic, the Pleated Ponte Dress is available online, only.

Retailing for $70, I waited until it went on sale and pounced! I was a little away from free shipping ($50 after discounts) so I added

Worth The ChromeGirl Wait

Worth The Wait
is a secret keeper. It's not black, it's not brown and its not wine. It's the best of all those shades. I applied 2 coats of Worth The Wait and topped my ring finger with Essie Matte About You and my other digits with ChromeGirl's high shine top coat.

A Simple Stila EOTD

A colourful eye doesn't have to be too bold or too intimidating. I start with Onyx on my upper and lower waterlines. Jaded Jack lines both my upper and lower lashline in a thicker-than-usual stroke so Cobalt doesn't completely cover the vivid green. I was able to achieve a gentle wingtip and once Cobalt dried, I retraced Jaded Jack, almost enveloping Cobalt. Kitten was added from my crease up to the brow bone where I used Barefoot Contessa to provide a soft filled eyebrow. I pulled it all together with 2 coats of mascara and was on my way!

•Stila, Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, Cobalt, $20.
•Stila, Kajal Eye Liner, Onyx, $18
•Stila, Eyeshadow, Kitten, $18

Have an Endless Summer with ChromeGirl

This was both fun and easy! I stared with 2 coats of Endless Summer by ChromeGirl and once it fully dried it painted Schmexy on to the thin side of a foundation wedge and sponged on, starting with the base of my nail for full opacity and worked the sponge up the nail giving it more of a tie-dye finish where the 2 shades met in the middle.

Endless Summer is a taxi cab yellow with a thin veil of golden shimmer for depth. This is one of those shades the is seasonless; rock it with a maxidress during the summer and pair it with burnt orange or pine grove green in the cooler months.
