by : Katrina

Happy Manicure Monday everyone!

“Katrina it’s 70 degrees today, tomorrow 84, and Wednesday 92!-_- and then back down to 70 on Thursday”  – morning text for Kim (lol)

NY weather seems to be trying to make it’s way into fall but still can’t cut the cord from summer just yet- similar to our manicures this week.

Kim’s Mani:

Color: OPI  “dulce de leche”  –  a beautiful nude/pink cream color!

& on her pinky: OPI ” diva of geneva”  – A red based- purple color with the perfect gold shimmer.

Isn’t her home mani on point though ?

Cutting off the Claws

by: Katrina

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! After weeks of growing my nails to what to me is “claw” lengths, the saddest day came when I had to cut them off. 😦 Having long nails definitely made me feel pretty, more girly, and all that good stuff- plus they looked amazing! But from scratching myself by accident to getting caught in random things- I just couldn’t take them anymore. How do you ladies do it?! Sam also had to trim her claws down. It was a devastating week for both of us but if you can’t even work a copy machine because of your nails- its a problem. Are we just being dramatic ?

On Our Radar: Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick


By: Kim

As we continue on our hunt for the perfect lip ensemble for the Spring, Sam stumbled on a new line of lipsticks from the vivacious brand, Buxom. We were instantly obsessed with these full-color, incredibly moisturizing pigments, and our collection has since grown to 3.

Infused with ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E, and coconut oil, these pigments have the power to plump (without the tingle), color & moisturize all at once.

The perks? These shades are long-lasting, and feel as smooth as a Chapstick when applied!

Available at Sephora for $21, these Buxom beauties are nothing short of a dream come true.

We’re loving “Rogue”, “Nudist”, and “Exhibitionist” from the line. Which color is the perfect hue for you?
