Today, I stumbled upon several articles promoting Alexa Chung's collaboration with Nails Inc. and the reveal of their newest polish made of KALE. No, you did not read that incorrectly. Yes, this nail polish, entitled NailKale, is made with the trendiest leafy green to ever make a comeback.

Lush Oatifix Soothing Banana Mask, $6.95
Blustery early-October breezes are the stuff of romance for many fall-oholics, but they also turn my face into a peely, cracky, and painful mess. Read More

Big fan of gold? Then OPI has fantastic news for you. Inspired by “the world of 007,” according to the company's Facebook page, OPI will be releasing their newest shade, “The Man with the Golden Gun.” But this polish is a bit different than your average metallic gold shimmery topcoat—OPI’s version contains real 18-karat gold.
The polish is shown as a topcoat, painted over a contrasting deep red to show off the gold flecks. Read More

Hunger Games fans rejoice! Effie (who'll be played by Elizabeth Banks in the upcoming film adaptation) is now the face of China Glaze’s new line of nail prods, "Capitol Colours."
