Don't want to be the one responsible for your next flight to be diverted due to a stinky spill? Consider packing Avon's Nail Enamel Remover Wipes ($5) instead. Or pick up a small bottle at the drugstore when you reach your destination — it's cheap. Another option is simply to stop in a salon for a quick polish removal and touch-up service.
But if you must pack nail polish remover on your carry-on, first follow TSA's 3-1-1 policy. After twisting the cap tightly, tape to the bottle to secure. Then you're cleared for takeoff.
Lots of you admitted that you apply makeup while driving. But sadly, tragic stories of driver distraction provide us all with wake-up calls. Lora Hunt, the Illinois woman who was polishing her nails while driving and therefore struck and killed a motorcyclist, was later found guilty of reckless homicide.
Many cities and states have laws against cell phone usage while driving, but do you expect to see more laws prohibiting primping?
With top notes of peppermint, grapefruit, pink pepper, ginger, and nutmeg; middle notes of jasmine and cedar; and bottom notes of frankincense, patchouli, and vetiver, I'd imagine the juice will be crisp, fresh, and sexy.
With visually impressive films like Goodfellas and Gangs of New York under his belt, I'm expecting (and hoping) that the Scorsese/Chanel collaboration is stylishly raw and gritty. "Basically, Martin Scorsese had carte blanche over the film. As a result, the film is an instant classic but also very modern and perfectly aligned with the image that Chanel wanted to convey with Bleu," Chanel's Andrea d'Avack told WWD. Look for the piece, which was shot in New York, out in September.
Confetti Nail Polish in Moonstruck ($1.99) at CVS — The new polish brand at CVS that I saw a few weeks ago didn't have a lot of unique or crazy options, but this taupe stood out. Big shocker. I was pretty pleased with this purchase since the price is so low, it applied well, and the color is so pretty. Two coats was sufficient, and while the color is very similar to a lot of other taupe polishes out there, it's the cheapest I've found of any quality. The creme finish is quite glossy, as well, though I would definitely recommend a top coat.
So! A certain member of Team Bella recently had her first date in, um, almost a year. Exciting stuff. The key to first-date beauty is to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, whether that's ruby red lipstick or nothing at all. (I refer to makeup, not clothes. Please wear clothes.) Since I prefer a minimal look that doesn't scream, "Hi, I apply my makeup with a trowel," this is the subtle, low-key version of pretty I went for.
To avoid that halo effect, do this instead: Start off by applying hair color only from your roots to any regrowth. Then, about five minutes before washing the dye out, pull the color through to the ends. (I like to use a wide-tooth comb to distribute.) If your hair still looks a little one-note after following this tip, break it up by painting on a lightening product for easy DIY highlights, or head to the salon for a professional foiling treatment.
