More snow is due tomorrow, but with new hues from SinfulColors, at least I can pretend it’s Spring!

SinfulColors Spring 2015 lineup of must have nail polishesAnother 7-10 inches of snow are in the forecast for later this week, but now that it’s finally March, I am firmly entrenched in “Spring-mode.” And, even though I have some serious snow fatigue, at least there is a glimmer of hope. In fact, yesterday I saw a clump of daffodils bravely pushing through the snow in the front garden!

From crocus purple to peony pink, bright Spring-like colors never fail to cheer me up at this time of year. And this season, SinfulColors offers a huge collection of brights, pastels and glitz that make it easy to bid farewell to my winter blues!

There are 24 unique shades from which to choose including bold, vibrant and unexpected shots of color that capture three major nails trends of the season.

First, traditional, soft pastels get an invigorating update with creamy shimmer and glitter. I love pastels when I have just a bit of a tan (even if it comes from bronzer in a jar!). And, this season, Cinderella-inspired Why Not? (sky blue) is at the top of my wish list.

Next, there are mood-boosting zesty oranges (a hot trend again this season), as well as bright yellows and greens. It’s an energizing palette of citrus-inspired colors guaranteed to invigorate your own “Spring Awakening.” Personally, Innocent (green apple) embodies the fresh, spring look I love!

Finally, there are calm blues, purples and teals which are enhanced with iridescent toppers for a unique take on classic shades. Tempest (purple) is my new fave for perfectly manicured toes!

The entire collection includes the following must-have hues:

  • Cloud 9: Perfect orange
  • Cream Pink: Bubble gum pink
  • Energetic Red: A classic fire engine red
  • Feel The Vibe: A bright splash of juicy orange
  • Gold Medal: The perfect metallic gold
  • Innocent: Green apple
  • Let’s Meet: Luxe lemon yellow
  • Let’s Talk: Royal purple
  • Nail Junkie: Sparkle-infused aqua
  • Navy I Do: True navy blue
  • Sail La Vie: Cerulean sea blue
  • Savage: A matte turquoise that pops
  • Tempest: A subtly seductive purple
  • Thimbleberry: A crushing shade of coral
    Why Not: A clear sky blue

Of course, toppers make every shade better and this season’s SinfulColors Toppers are the best yet. They include three great looks:

OPALESCENT TREND TOPPERS

  • Flight To See: Prismatic plum
  • Prized Plume: Iridescent peacock-feather blue
  • Sheer Flight: Bejeweled emerald

CITRUS TWIST TOPPERS

  • Horizon Shine: High-shine crimson red
  • Ring The Belini: Metallic tangerine feather blue
  • Zest Of Times: Lustrous magenta

BLOOMBLAST GLITTERS

  • Flower Power: Baby pink speckled with white and fuchsia
  • Petal Be The Day: Royal blue and purple confetti
  • Standing Bloom Only: A creamy mango with magenta flecks

What makes this line different from others is the depth and richness of the color. These nail polishes have a truly sophisticated appeal. They are perfect on their own, or for use in sassy nail art!

Plus, the SinfulColors line is made in the USA, with the high quality you expect from a leading nail brand, without formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.

Of course, many polishes look great in the bottle, but sometimes they “show” differently on actual nails. That’s why I love SinfulColors Instagram page. See the shades on real nails before you commit.

But, best of all is the price. Unlike other nail color,s the SinfulColors line is so affordable, you can indulge in more than one shade… every season. For example, a comparable bottle of OPI retails for $8.00, but the new SinfulColors Spring Collection is only $1.99 per bottle!

Hydro Boost Water Gel by Neutrogena uses hyaluronic acid to moisturize skin with up to 1,000 times its weight in water!

Neutrogena Nydro Boost Water GelIf you want to boost your skin’s hydration all day long, I recently found a new product that can really help. It’s from Neutrogena, a company that has created some of the world’s most trusted skincare products for decades.

New Hydro Boost Water Gel instantly quenches dry skin and keeps it looking smooth, supple and hydrated throughout the day. The unique water gel has a long-lasting, intense moisturizing power, locking in skin’s natural moisture against the elements.

I love the gel formula! In the summer, this product is a perfect candidate for my refrigerator trick: I store moisturizer and other skincare product in the fridge for a cool blast in the morning that’s oh-so-refreshing.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for summer to try Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel! Winter weather creates some seriously dry skin that needs immediate attention. And, the hydrating hyaluronic acid contained in this gel is the perfect solution. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin and acts as a sponge for dry skin cells, moisturizing with up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The result is more supple and smooth skin that really lasts!

New Hydro Boost Water Gel also lives up to the Neutrogena standard for effective, yet gentle, skincare. It’s oil-free and non-comedogenic, so it can be used even by those who have the most sensitive skin.

It’s also wearable under makeup. However, it does take a few minutes to dry completely. My recommendation is to let it dry thoroughly to avoid caking of mineral makeup or smearing of liquid foundation.

Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel is widely available nationwide all major retailers from Target to Walgreens, as well as online.

And, best of all, it’s priced at just $18.99!

The highly anticipated Academy Awards are tonight and Los Angeles will be awash in ice. Not the cold, slushy kind that we are facing here in the Northeast, but, the fun kind that you get at Harry Winston!

In preparation for the red carpet event, I’ve highlighted a few Oscar-worthy baubles that are gorgeous enough for an iconic Hollywood actress, but affordable enough for the rest of us mere mortals!
