Nail of the Day: "Manhattan" by NYC

  The nails I have been wearing recently for this fall is the color "Manhattan" by NYC ($1.99). It's a deep plum/burgundy color that is perfect for this fall and winter. NYC claims that it has a quick-dry formula that dries "in less than 60 seconds"and contains minerals for your nails.

        While I would say that this nail polish definitely dries much faster than most other nail polishes that I have used, I wouldn't go as far as to say that it dries in 60 seconds flat. However, for the cheap price of this nail polish ($1.99) this product is amazing in quality, longevity, pigmentation and drying speed. Even just one coat of this nail polish is enough to look polished and finished. Two coats, as I have shown in the picture above, just deepens the color. The quality and richness of the color is really impressive and is reminiscent of a higher-end nail polish. Also, the longevity for such a cheap nail polish is amazing as I have found that it lasts up to 3 or 4 days without chipping like most of my middle-priced nail polishes. 

       The size of the bottle (0.33 fl oz) is the perfect size to conveniently throw into your purse for a quick paint job on the go but is large enough so that you get a lot of bang for your buck. The brush applicator is really user friendly and makes the product really easy and simple to apply without creating a gloppy, sticky mess. The packaging of this nail polish is also pretty sleek for such a cheap brand and looks like a cute mini-version of the OPI nail polishes.

Overall, for the great low price I think that this line of nail polishes is an absolute steal and I will definitely be buying more of these in different colors.

Beauty Trend Alert: Burgundy Lips!

   Mysterious and sultry, celebrities have taken Hollywood's traditional "Marilyn Monroe" inspired red lip to new, darker territory. Blood red, vampy burgundy lipstick is this Fall's newest beauty trend. Edward Cullen would be proud.

Personally, I have been absolutely loving this trend. Deep hues like burgundy and maroon are perfect for the transition into colder weather and are reminiscent of autumn leaves changing colors. 

My two favorite burgundy lip colors (shown above) have been MAC Viva Glam III and Revlon Lip Butter in "Red Velvet". The MAC lipstick is great if you want a more opaque, bold look and the Revlon Lip Butter is great if you want a softer, shinier look. For the lipstick, I like to use MAC Lip Pencil in "Burgundy" to perfect the outer corners of my lips.
