What is HOT? …Sorbet Nail Polish

These six fruity shades are part of OPI’s new collection. The formula is a sheer jelly that OPI describes as “Sorbet,” but they look like candy on the fingernails. And the colors are so glossy, a top coat is strictly optional.

Protect your painted nails A long-lasting manicure or pedicure starts at the salon: Choose a light shade of polish, which won’t readily show chips. Ask the technician to push your cuticles back instead of cutting them, as cut cuticles become ragged-looking faster.

Each day after your appointment, apply a cuticle minimizer to slough off dead cells and preserve smoothness and paint on a clear topcoat to maintain the polish’s shine.

Touch up any chips with a polish pen in a neutral color (with light shades, you don’t have to worry about matching exactly).

Moisturize hands frequently, and when feet begin to get dry, exfoliate in the shower with a gentle foot file; follow with a rich cream. Avoid using gritty scrubs, since they can dull polish.

Steal this Look! Hot Pink Hair (a season-less look)

Technicolor Hair  is a street influence from people who surf or people who have very light blond hair and play with the color. A lot of designers are putting pink in their shows as seen with the hot pink hair of the 18-year-old catwalk newcomer Charlotte Free, a fashion world’s collective obsession who opened Vivienne Westwood.

Technicolor hair resurfaced on the fall runways, including Fendi, Yohji Yamamoto, Theyskens’ Theory, Jeremy Scott, Tracy Reese, Prabal Gurung and Gaultier.



Red springs up.

Red bold splashes from head to toes. Rihanna’s transformation from a long-haired island girl to a cutting edge pop REDHEAD superstar.

Selecting the right color depends on the amount of warmth that is in the hair already. Your stylist will mix a couple of colors to make sure there is a fair balance of warm and neutral colors in the hair, rather than simply applying only the color you selected at in the color swatch book. This will only create more warmth.
If you have grey roots and faded ends from the previous color, I recommend getting permanent color on the roots and semi-permanent color on the ends.
