    Pale Summer Lacquers from OPI? Don’t Mind If I do!

    OPI is always ahead of the game when it comes to trend-setting colours. This spring, the pastel nail trend is kicking into high gear so you want to be prepared.

    The Femme de Cirque SoftShades collection ($10.95) each is launching in April at select professional salons, spas and Trade Secrets. The collection offers 4 dreamy pink shades that vary from creamy to shimmering. The pale shades are so spring and definitely hyper-feminine.

    For the Johnny Depp lovers of the world (myself included), OPI is also releasing a Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection with 6 limited edition shades ($10.95 each). This collection is a little more bright and perfect for the summer. My personal favourite is Planks a Lot, a vibrant yet soft purple.

    Although the dark winter nail polish you’ve come to love is still acceptable, spring is the perfect time to delve into the trends a little more and embrace colours that speak to the season a little more. So lighten up! (Is it crazy that I find my own lame jokes ridiculously hilarious?!)

    Sephora Launches Adorable Hello Kitty Collection

    Regardless of what the weather outside is saying, spring is in the air and I’m 100% ready for it. After yesterday’s Wonder Woman by MAC post, I figured I’d keep the momentum going with another equally adorable and altogether irresistible collection. If you’re a Hello Kitty collector or just an average makeup junkie, you’re going to love this.

    When it comes to the lips, the Hello Kitty Collection combines pretty with practical. All three of the new lip products are extra-hydrating and extra tasty. Made with ingredients like Candelila wax, strawberry and grapeseed extracts, your lips will remain hydrated and smooth all day long and in case you need a touch-up, you won’t mind packing one of these adorable products with you.

    Sweet Gloss ($21)

    Apple Balm ($12)

    Big Smile Gloss ($21)

    If you’re a gal who loves to emphasize your eye makeup, the eyeliner kit and eyeshadow palettes are right up your alley. The velvety smooth colours are extra pigmented and long-lasting. Plus they’re easy to carry with you anywhere you go and come complete with an adorable Hello Kitty motif. (Do you not just love the eyeshadow palette below?)

    Say Hello Palette ($46)

    For the nail polish aficionado, you’ll want to flaunt one of spring 2011’s hottest trends: pastel nails. With a high-shine finish, UV protection and this totally adorable bottle, I think I need all seven of the available shades!

    Liquid Nail Art ($13)

    And these items don’t even need explanation. They’re super cute and they have topped my must-have list. A mirror adorned with Swarovski crystals? Do I need this? Of course. I can hardly wait for the Hello Kitty Collection to hit Sephora stores on January 27. Which of these products are you itching to get your hands on?
