Mariah Carey for OPI

OPI just launched a new line of nail colors inspired by Mariah Carey.
My Ulta had them on the shelves earlier than their release date of 1/2/13.
I picked up 2 colors, A Butterfly Moment, which is a shimmer nude with a pink tint and Pink Yet Lavender a pink and iridescent glitter.
There are 4 colors and 4 'sands' the new textured opi. I saw swatches of the sands and they are not my thing, its dull and similar texture to a colored sand paper, guess that's what they were going for...

I did a mani with A Butterfly Moment with accents of Pink Yet Lavender

D.I.Y Glittering your shoes !

I recently D.I.Yed a pair of high heels with glitter and have had some people ask for a how to. Its very easy but messing so if you don't like glitter everywhere than this is not for you!
Here are the heels I did first and than I will show the step by step for flats.
Plain black leather heels turned into my holiday heels!

First find shoes you would want to glitter,

What you need. Modge podge works too or any type of glue other than super glue

Brush on glue in small areas

Pour glitter over the glue and gently shake loose glitter off. Put paper under to catch the fallen glitter.

Keep doing that over the entire shoe.

See its messy!

When dry spray with a clear gloss spray, 2 coats.

Than let dry over night and they are ready to wear.
Don't walk through snow or water becase it will ruin your hard work!

Neiman Marcus +Target.. Judith Leiber & Tory Burch!

It's arrived. 1 legendary partnership. More than 50 gorgeous gifts.

So today is the debut of Neiman Marcus + Target designer collaboration and I got up bright and early to beat the crowds... yea the crowd of 2! Employees were disappointed by the lack of a line but I was very happy! I went in for 2 reasons, 1. Tory Burch and 2. Judith Leiber!! I adore TB shoes and have a closet full so I needed to add to my collection her 2 gift items, the lunch box ($19.99) and thermos ($24.99). I am going to use the lunch box as a make up train.

And the other item I was dieing to get was Judith Leiber's crystal encrusted compact mirror ($59.99). I dream of owning her beautiful bags but the price is pretty steep.$3,000, $6,000 and more for one. I checked out all the colors and went with the pink and white zebra one. It comes with a cute dust bag too. Similar JL mirrors are $225 in major department stores.

Items can be purchased at both Neiman Marcus and Target for a limited time. http://www.target.com/c/target-neiman-marcus-collection/-/N-5ouwb#?lnk=Other_HP_P1_ESPOT-0|ESPOT-0
