    Gossip Girl Inspires Nicole by OPI’s New Nail Polish Collection

    Attention Gossip Girl fans: If you love you some GG then you’re going to adore the new Nicole by OPI nail polish collection slated to hit stores in mid-August. The Gossip Girl-inspired nail lacquers are available in four super hot , ultra-trendy shades.
    First off, teal is going to be everywhere this coming fall, from fashion to beauty. It’s really hot and from all the beauty collections I’ve seen so far, the trend is all about funky yet wearble colour. Too Rich For You (pictured at left) is a rich blue nail colour with a shimmering finish and it’s the perfect representation of the exact shade of teal the fashion and beauty world is going to be dripping with this coming fall.

    The colours are cutting edge and glamorous so they really represent some of your fave GG characters, like Blair and Serena. I predict that these high intensity nail lacquers are going to be swept up off the shelves like hot cakes this year. So I suggest you make your picks now and get ready to start checking out your local pharmacies to see when these fashion-forward colours hit stores. OPI nail polishes are known for their long-lasting wear, shiny finish and superior quality. Trendy + quality + GG = Awesome, no?!

    Here’s a look at the rest of the nail lacquers in the collection.

    Celeb-worthy hair for less


    I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on this one. I’m always looking for products to keep my hair silky soft and repair heat damage from my beloved (yet evil) flat iron. And I hate to admit it but I’m sort of a hair product snob. I usually look to expensive or salon-approved lines of products because I feel like I’ll get better results. Which, to-date, has been effective.

    But I have recently fallen for one easily accessible and affordable line of products. The Herbal Essences Hydralicious shampoo and conditioner (launched in 2008). After one use, I found my hair to be extra smooth and silky soft. Each product only reatils for $3.99 so that’s an added bonus.

    I also use the Long Term Relationship Leave-in Split End Protector which is also only$3.99. It’s great for moisturizing hair but I picked up a fun little tip about it from Charles Baker Strahan, North American Celebrity Hairstylistfor Herbal Essences. It’s also great for tucking in your flyaways.

    While I had the chance to meet with Charles, I asked him alot about the new line and since he styles hair for celebs like Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, I trust his professional opinion. Hydralicious is one of his fave hair product systems and with good reason. Aside from being super effective, you can purchase the items with whatever loose change you find in your sofa or car!

    Bonus: Charles also took a minute to show me how to make a fab ‘do in no-time. He seperated my hair into three sections (horizonatlly). He took the top section, split it in two and tied the two sections of hair together in a loose knot. He did the same for the other two sections. Then he tucked in the ends with bobby pins and in less than 3 minutes, I had this red carpet-ready ‘do (pictured below).

    I used Hydralicious that morning and it made the hairtsyle way easier to achieve. If your hair is too coarse, it might be more difficult, so make life easier on yourself and make sure your hair is hydrated and smooth before attempting this look. Get a friend to try it out on you and you can do it for her. It’s perfect when you have a last-minute party and don’t know what to do with your locks.

    While we’re on the topic, what products do you use for softer hair? Would you be willing to put Hydralicious to the test?
