It's Friday!  The Professional Beauty Association has had a busy September, and I wanted to let you know what's been going on!

Along with the new look, PBA is honing its focus on five core program areas: Government Advocacy, Education, Charitable Outreach, Signature Events, and Member Services. PBA believes investing in these areas is critical for both its members and the industry. By creating a more consistent look and messaging, PBA members will be able to better recognize and take advantage of the many programs, opportunities, and events the association offers.

Secondly, Schwarzkopf & Henkel, manufacturer of Smooth 'N Shine®, will sponsor the "2013 Smooth 'N Shine® Cosmetology Scholarship." With a grand prize of up to $25,000 and ten $1,000 scholarships available, students currently in high school or high school graduates enrolled in or intending to enroll in a program resulting in a cosmetology (hairstyling) license are eligible to enter.

Cult Nails Happy Ending


As I mentioned earlier, I'm getting over a nasty upper respiratory infection but am trying to keep you entertained with some awesome polish!  My desk looks a bit like the following polish - covered in pretty colors!  Today I have Cult Nails Happy Ending, an array of shredded glitters in a clear base.  I decided to put it over my Time Traveler manicure.  This is 2 coats of HE followed by Wicked Fast.


So for the most part, the glitter is shredded in medium chunks but I had this one amazingly huge piece that was stuck to the top of my brush, so naturally, I included it in my manicure.  Fun and fantastic!


Believe it or not, I found that my polish was actually pretty smooth after just one coat of Wicked Fast top coat.  Normally I have to pull out my Lynnderella Glitter Tamer for items like this.  As for "How does it compare to Happy Birthday" or any other multicolored glitter, I'd have to say it's the shredding - irregular in shape and size which makes this super unique.  Also I love how well it applied to the nail.  I didn't have to fish my brush around or store my bottle upside down to make the glitter fall to the brush.  Excellent purchase!

Cult Nails [Website | Facebook | Twitter | Blog | Instagram: CultNails] is available in their shop for $12 a bottle.

Nail Files: High Heels and Low Class Breakdown

Image Courtesy of TV Guide Network Facebook Page


In The Salon
Katie is having a party with booty parlor products [Website | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube] and has invited a small select group of staff to join.  Can you smell the disaster about to happen?  Add a stripper pole, some crotchless panties and a drunk Joyce and watch the fireworks.  Katie calls Joyce up to her office to explain and Joyce could care less.  This girl is just asking to never be hired again - anywhere.

Katie is looking at franchising!!!  I think one would do amazingly well in Austin, Texas but even that is too far away from me (4 hours).  However, you know I'd go to it!  I don't know if there is a Painted Nail Miami yet - haven't played with Google yet.

Celebrity Sighting!
Alex and Donya but who are they?  My Google search resulted zero results.  Anyone else know?  Edit: I think they may be the twins behind Condition Culture?

In Katie's Life
TV Guide has offered Katie the opportunity to do some stand up on their new show Standup in Stilettos.  Katie did some stand up when she first moved to LA so this was right up her alley, but she hadn't done any in awhile so this was going to be interesting.  She tried to start off with her nail salon jokes but Katie forgot the number one rule of public speaking... know your audience!  So she started some improv off the crowd and it went much better.  During the real thing for TV Guide, she had a pretty decent time.  I haven't watched it yet myself, but I'm going to check my On Demand and see what I can find.

The Mish Mash
I do believe the yellow Louboutins that Katie wore to Standup in Stilettos were the ones she wore last year to Cosmoprof.  I could be wrong but I don't think I am...

Cult Nails Time Traveler

Last of my blue polishes for now, I promise.  I'm going glitter soon.  This time I bring you Cult Nails Time Traveler, a SUPER Navy blue creme that is ridiculously pigmented and opaque.  This is from the Super Powers 2011 Collection in case you're keeping score.

I used a base of Cult Nails Get It On, one coat of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Now yes, I said one coat of polish.  This stuff is crazy ridiculous.  I also got it everywhere.  This is pre-top coat/pre-clean up

I use an e.l.f. Professional Concealer Brush and Zoya Remove+ to clean up my edges.


So yeah, look how pigmented and opaque and smooth this is in the sun?!  It's a great color when you need a pow-in-your-face navy blue creme.  POW right in the kisser.


Even in some indirect light, there's no stopping this color.  I love that the script for the bottles is in silver - makes a huge difference!


Super crazy with the flash too.  If you're looking for a one coater - ta da.  I did not have any staining either so ... yes.  Go #JoinTheCult already.  ^_^

Creative Bioscience 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge


I am not a doctor.  The following post is written with my opinions and the information provided from the Creative Bioscience website.  You should discuss any weight loss treatment with your doctor before you start it.  

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you have seen the hashtag #thebeautyloser which is actually the detailed account of Beauty Judy's weight loss journey.  I told her that I really wanted to join her on her mission and try and lose my own excess weight for my health and well being.

I received a large portion of my Dad's genes... he's a former football player and stands at 6'6" and my whole family has a huge love of food (well, especially me).  When I started high school (14 years ago), I hit my last major growth spurt and gained 20 pounds in my 4 years.  Then in college, I gained not just a freshman 15 but rather a freshman 35 (in 4 years).  I got pregnant in 2006 and my weight went all over the place.  First I lost 20 pounds, then I gained 45 pounds, then I lost 25 pounds and then slowly over the next three years I gained 45 pounds.  I was at my heaviest... even heavier than being 9 months pregnant.  After an icky breakup where I was told I was too fat, I decided to really work on getting rid of the weight.  For 10 months, I watched my diet very strictly (but healthy) and went to the gym at least three times a week.  By mid 2011, I was feeling great but still had about 30 pounds to lose before my doctor would be happy with me.  However, I stopped watching my diet and the gym became less of a priority and now, 14 months later I have gotten back up to my heaviest weight again.  I feel sluggish, my hips hurt from sitting too long, nothing fits, and I know that this is not how I want to look or feel about myself.

SO.  All that being said, I am accepting the 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge from Creative Bioscience who will sponsor my product trial of African Mango 1200TM for 90 days in my effort to lose weight.  After carefully looking over the Creative Bioscience website, I chose African Mango 1200TM because I am looking to lose 20+ pounds (uh, closer to 70 but hey, baby steps), it helps reduce LDL cholesterol (at last checking, mine was HIGH - too much bacon), and there aren't any side effects because the product is all natural.  You take one capsule 30 minutes before meals twice per day... for me, breakfast and lunch are going to be the easiest.

Am I nervous?  Of course.  This is not a miracle drug, and Creative Bioscience clearly states: 
As with any diet supplement of this nature, you do not need to change your eating habits or exercise. We do not discourage exercise or changing your diet, but they are not required for the weight loss. This will not give you a free pass to eat whatever you want, and expect to have no side effects, as this should be used in coordination with a healthy lifestyle in general.
What better way to help me aid my #thebeautyloser journey?  I will be keeping updates, weekly is my goal, to let you know how it's going - food, work outs, and the African Mango 1200TM.

Hey Bloggers!  Want to kick start your own weight loss challenge with Creative Bioscience to help you?  You may apply to their 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge here.

Cult Nails Princess

Yes, I'm still feeling like blue is my color and so today I have Cult Nails Princess, a pretty light blue with a subtle pink shimmer.  When I say subtle, sadly I mean subtle.  I used a base of Cult Nails Get It On, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.  The polish formula behaved very nicely - didn't pool or go on streaky.


Try as you might but it's going to be hard to see that pink in this picture here in the sun.  What you can see is smooth, pigmented blue polish though!


Try really hard here in the shade - you can kind of see the shimmer in the bottle.  It's really faint but it's this lovely sugar molecule type shimmer in a baby pink.  I promise.


Can you see it in indirect light?  I feel like I'm playing a game of Green Eggs and Ham except I really want to see the pink shimmer.  (Okay, I just realized that Maria calls is copper shimmer, but it sure looks pink to me)


Ah, finally some of that shimmer (see middle finger).  Very delicate - like a princess.  Princess is a part of the Cult Fairy Tale collection 2012.

Marc Anthony HairCare Fall 2012 Trends

Fashion Week has come and gone and it's been all about the hair, the makeup and (most importantly) the nails!  However, I felt inspired to get my hair curled this past weekend and while it only lasted a few hours, I was happy with the results.


So what does an actual expert have to say about the Fall/Winter 2012/2013 Hair Trends?  Well, keep reading to find out what Marc Anthony is predicting.


One ‘Faithfull’ Muse and Two Looks for
Fall/Winter 2012/2013 Hair
We live for this season with a massive love for the new fall/winter feeling. Fall’s fashion is a well travelled look, tailored and at times very traditional yet fresh. It feels sort of posh from the inside; by that we mean it’s about the cut and the fabric more than instant impact that blinds you. Hair follows suit with natural ease and simplicity, a bit more refinement and a versatility that lends itself to any outfit and any occasion. 

There is a bit of color in this season’s collection (a few designers did bold and bright) but for the most part the colors are muted. It is nice to not have it be all about black.  We see trousers vs. pants and a very feminine masculine. Sizzi, the designer for Giulietta, said it best, “I want it to feel traditional but happy and playful.”

With this in mind we went to work creating our trends for the season. Our muse: MARIANNE FAITHFULL. That sort of sexy, ‘just woke up’ look that somehow works with wide length trousers, tweeds and evening wear. Two looks, one woman and Marc Anthony products. 

SOFT AUTUMN WAVES
A dash of the mysterious; so perfect with this year’s well travelled look. We adore how long the layers are with this cut. They are softer than we have seen from a technical point of view. We cut into the ends of the layers to ensure they sort of dissipate vs. just ending crisply. These waves are a bit more polished than we have seen in the last while and we love that they are well groomed. 

GET THE LOOK:
  1. Get some movement going: Start with freshly washed hair and a bit of Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray to get some volume and wave started. If your hair is fine flip your head over and scrunch as you dry to help achieve a bit of extra volume as well as movement.  Once hair is dried you will need a large barrel curling iron, Pro Finish Hairspray and some clips.

  1. Curling iron: Starting at the bottom, part hair into 2-inch sections across using clips to keep rest of the hair out of the way. You want the sections large because this wave is very loose. Spray with Pro Finish and very loosely wrap hair around the barrel (start wrapping hair from about two inches down), holding for a few seconds. As you move up the head begin dropping the sections lower each time. Repeat this until you are finished.

  1. Finish: Take a bit of Oil of Morocco Argan Oil, rub it into your fingertips and then use your fingertips as a comb to work out the waves into a natural finish.  A natural bristle brush will give this look a bit of extra polish.

FULL FALL VOLUME
This is such a polished, natural look. Again shorter hair with longer layers is an important message for this season. We love the definition of the perimeter and the softness of the interior. A big round brush, some bye.bye.Frizz Blow Dry Cream and Dry Shampoo is all you need. 2nd Day Clear Dry Shampoo is more than just that. Though it is amazing at removing dirt, grime and oil it is also a volumizer, which is as ‘pro tip’ as you can get...read on! Let’s walk through the way to achieve this look.

GET THE LOOK:
  1. Blow out: A large round natural bristle brush will give you just the right amount of volume and bend at the ends. You want this look to have a natural finish so the larger the brush the better. Apply the Blow Dry Cream and blow dry hair section by section. If your hair is fine roll up and pin each section after you dry it to help ‘set’ the hair.

  1. Add shine: Once hair is dry add Oil of Morocco Argan Oil to your fingertips and run it through your hair before using the natural bristle brush to give your hair a good brushing. The Oil helps to lock in shine.

  1. Volumize: Now, take your Dry Shampoo and apply it to the scalp; you want to spray about six inches from the root area. Leave it be for a couple of minutes then with your fingertips shake it out. Seriously, that’s a wrap.

Pixi Evening Emerald

Pixi, the brand founded by Petra Strand, is one that is relatively new to my world despite being over 10 years old (launched in Soho, London).  Pixi is allow about pure, awakening & skin loving products that create a natural "just had a good night's sleep" look.  Their motto is "makeup to wakeup" and is all about creating multitasking, flaw-fixing and youth-enhancing products.  While you can find more about their makeup line at their website, today I have one of their jewel-toned polishes perfect for this fall 2012 season. This is Evening Emerald, a swirly blue-green shimmer toned polish.  I used a base of Poshe, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.  I found that the polish behaved for the most part, didn't really flood my cuticles, but I am not used to the slender brush and needed to be careful while painting.


While you can almost see a hint of purple in the bottle, I assure you that it's just the reflection of my red hand.  This polish was not easy to photograph in the sun because of all the shimmer.


I did get one in indirect sun where you can see more of that depth of shimmer.  It reminds me of different polishes but I can't think of any dupes in my collection - let me know in the comments if you know of one!


Here with the flash, the color leans more green than blue, so it's all about lighting.  You can see that I needed to clean up just a bit more on my cuticles, but that was from bad painting, not bad formula.  The question becomes price and while the price is quite expensive ($8) for a small bottle, if you're looking for a perfect jeweled toned emerald, this may be one to try. (To compare, a bottle of Cult Nails is $10 for a 15 ml/0.5 fl oz bottle.)

Pixi [Website | Facebook | Twitter | Blog | YouTube] can be purchased online from their website or use find a retailer using their Online Retailers search engine for $8.00 for a 7ml/0.25 fl oz bottle.  You can also purchase Pixi at Target!

Urban Decay Releases

I was tickled pink (really!) over some new press releases I received from Urban Decay this last month.  I'm really happy to be able to share these new products with you, and cannot wait to own some of them when they hit Sephora later on.  

First up is Ocho Loco - a rainbow (kinda?) collection of eight full-sized 24/7 Glide On eye Pencisl.  For are new and exclusive.  It also includes a Grind House Double Barrel Sharpener.  The price?  Only $59 which if you bought these on its own, it's a value of $152.  Available online only at Sephora, Ulta, Macys, Beauty and UrbanDecay.

The Feminine palette includes shimmering neutrals and smoky hues.


The Dangerous palette includes deep jewel tones and seductive neutrals.


Finally the Fun palette is just great colors to create upbeat every day looks.


Now, what would the holidays be without a new collection of shadows?!  This is going on my birthday list, for sure because for one, Urban Decay is releasing TWENTY new shadows.  That's right, NO repeats from other collections.  Holla.


Look at that large mirror!  The case opens slowly with the push button on the side, motion-control tehnology from the automotive industry.

LVX Callais

Continuing on the blue streak, I have the summer baby blue creme from LVX Callais, which is lighter than the Sation Blue Sky's The Limit that I wore the other day.  Thankfully, unlike Ecru, I found the formula on this polish to be much nicer - flowing well and smooth on the nail.

I used a base of Poshe, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Here in the sun you can see how smooth the polish is - nothing too flashy and a pretty straight blue creme.

It's not quite pastel here in the shade, but it is a very pretty hue.

I'm not sure why it was so washed out in my in indirect sun picture.  It's definitely not this milky blue color normally!

Finally with the flash, you can see how pigmented it really is - no bald spots on pulling really.  I thought my pinkie was a little bare but doesn't really seem like it - just a tiny bit near the cuticle.  I paint my nails from pinkie to index so sometimes I don't get full coverage on my pinkie when I'm learning the flow of a polish.

LVX [Website | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram: shoplvx] is available on their website for $16 a 17 ml/0.57 oz bottle.  It is big 5 free to include Toluene and Camphor.

NOTD: 15 September 2012

I was so in love with my Sation Blue Sky's The Limit manicure that I had to keep wearing it but I decided to add a little spice to it, with Cover Band Sticks 'n Stones available at Ninja Polish (currently out of stock).


My terrible right hand - I had 3 broken nails (thumb, index, middle), and a super long ring finger.


My polish matched my cardigan!

Love this shot - the polish, the cardigan, the negative space...

My normal looking left hand before I broke a nail and went back to nubbins.

The picture that started it all.
