Nails & A Solution, On the tube & Fashion

You are looking at the color Crepes Suzi-ette by OPI. It is almost like a dark burnt orange.
Which colors will you be wearing as we move toward the warmer months?
A Possible Solution
Last week I posted on Brooklyn, a new fragrance hitting the market this year, and many of you thought the price tag was outrageous. Well Bond 9 is not one to disappoint so check out how you can win a free bottle each month for an entire year. If you are a winner, your name will also appear on the bottle of the fragrance!
From Bond 9-"When we introduced our latest fragrance, Brooklyn , last month, its breakthrough street-art surface design brought praise and a barrage of responses. Well, we already knew that aficionados of the borough of Brooklyn can be opinionated. But so many strong opinions reached us about what a Brooklyn bottle could look like that we realized we’d better offer more options if we knew what was good for us. So throughout March 2009, Bond No. 9 invites everyone—amateurs and artists alike—to join our Brooklyn Bottle Design Competition and create additional visuals for this contemporary male-oriented cardamom-cedarwood eau de parfum.
Ground Rules → Create your design to fit within the outline of the Bond No. 9 superstar flacon and to include our circular “token” logo. (See outline with logo, attached to this press release, and also downloadable at → Any style, figurative or abstract, is fine with us. → Inspiration can come from anywhere in Brooklyn—DUMBO, Park Slope, Flatbush, Canarsie, Midwood, Bay Ridge, et al.—or from the very idea of Brooklyn . → Any medium is okay: oil, acrylic, watercolor, house paint, pastel, crayon, Magic Marker, makeup—even a ballpoint pen or pencil will do.
Completed designs should be submitted to or Bond No. 9, 9 Bond Street , New York , NY 10012 by March 31, 2009. After our two winners are chosen in early April, we’ll put the victorious designs into production, with the winner’s names displayed on the bottles. Each winner will also receive one bottle of Brooklyn per month for a year.

If you watched celebrity Apprentice, how annoying was Scott? LOL
Soon everyone will be wearing their sunglasses again. On that note, what do you think of Amber Rose's Chanel shades?

Her sunglasses are so dope! Despite her questionable past, she stays on point!

I like those shades! Girl, I wear them year round here in Florida. In fact, I can't even walk around/drive without shades on. My eyes are so sensitive to even just a little bit of sunlight.

Lovin' that OPI color!

OPI is my new bestie. The brush is heaven sent!

Glasses are cute but If I see someone walking in the street with them I would think they were over doing it though.

i dont like them. i like different but they dont look right on her. i think they would look hot on someone with big hair and a more youthful wardrobe.

like that one artist that pharrell signed i am blanking on her name

Whit I don't recall seeing Amber Rose without shades, that woman loves some sunglasses!
B With that beautiful sun beaming on your every day, you must have a hot collection of shades.
Mrs. YF I do like that OPI brush.
Just me I would agree with you I don't like them either. You are probably talking about Teyanna (something like that) or Kelis back when her hair was big but I don't recall it she was signed with Pharell so maybe Teyanna.
thanks for reading ladies.

Interesting content.

Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.
