OPI’s SkyFall collection

I seriously am a sucker for these types of movie tie-in promotions. I realize it’s sheer marketing, but can’t help myself. Behold the new OPI nail polish line inspired by the new James Bond “SkyFall” film.

Why call it “red,” when you can call it “Die Another Day”? Am I right? Personally, I’m partial to the deep green silverness of “Live and Let Die.” What do you think?

Butter London’s union jack pack

I’ve always been an Opi girl, but Butter London has compiled its top three best sellers into one union jack pack trio on Ulta online. The three colors, Yummy Mummy, Come to Bed Red and Union Jack Black, are $36. I’ve never used Butter London nail  lacquers before, but this Brit-powered pack might be the inspiration that I need. I’ve read a lot of online reviews and they seem to be very long-wearing, chip-resistant and definitely a good value. Have you tried Butter London?

On another note, Ulta is offering a buy one Butter London nail lacquer, get one free today only, as part of its “21 Days of Beauty” promotion. And for Ulta members like me, you can also download the $3.50 off coupon for additional savings in-store or online.

Scotch! For your nails!

Have you heard about Scotch nail polish (translation: nail varnish), a non-toxic, eco-friendly line of colors with names like Loch Ness Mystery, Black Tartan and Highland Mist? Even cooler? The bottles are fashioned after whiskey bottles. Love it! (Oh yeah, and they’re based here in the U.S. but available in the U.K. and quite a few other countries globally!)
