Edgy, Dark and Beautifully Disturbing… Duri Nail Polishes inspired by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!

I can’ t wait for this movie!

Get your Lisbeth Salander on! Those who read the blockbuster crime trilogy know that the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo also played with Fire and kicked the Hornet’s Nest – so it’s no wonder beauty addicts everywhere will be getting their grunge on and adding a little bit of Lisbeth’s disturbed style to their beauty routine this winter.

 

With hair color blazing red to pitch black, multiple tattoos and body piercings, the introverted computer hacker always had her hands on the action. Act out her distinctive look by taking nails over the edge with a coat or two of darkly intriguing, misunderstood blockbuster beauty style. After all, a little mani/pedi is a lot less painful, a little less permanent and the perfect “10″ Character Assassination!

Duri Cosmetics’ deep hues inspired by Lisbeth’s troubled nature puts nails in character with fiery hot shades and shivering cool Nordic winter whites to capture the complete picture.

 

  • Fallen Angel (Dark plum with a hint of red shimmer)
  • Black Diamond (Black with shimmer)
  • Dragontini (Dark purple)
  • Angels and Demons (Dark grey with silver glitter)
  • Icicle (Creamy white with crystal shimmer)
  • Frozen Fire (Sheer pink with sparkling crushed ice)

Beauty Tip: Layer Icicle or Frozen Fire over the deep, dark hues listed above for even more Lisbeth Salander looks!

All Duri nail products are completely safe (unlike Lisbeth), environmentally-friendly and free from DBP, TOLUENE and FORMALDEHYDE.

$5, Duri Cosmetics can be purchased online at www.duri.com and specialty stores nationwide.

Get Red Carpet Ready with göt2b

Want to copy the coveted hairstyles of the 2011 American Music Award nominees? With a little help from göt2b hair stylers and celebrity stylist Larry Sims, you’ll be on your way to a rockin’ ‘do in no time. Below, Sims predicts the red carpet looks of Katy Perry, Adele and Rihanna and gives step-by-step tips on how to achieve each look at home!


“Katy Perry’s look has always been daring and fun with a classy edge to it,” says Sims. He predicts she’ll rock glamorous, old Hollywood waves (in her now signature pink hair, of course!). To achieve Katy’s flawless waves, Sims suggests “curling hair with a ¼ inch curling iron barrel, wrapping strands downward from root-to-tip, section-by-section.” After hair has been set, Sims recommends “brushing strands downward to loosen up the wave before locking in the style with göt2b rockin’ it encore hold hairspray.

 

“Adele typically shows up to red carpet events with her signature beehive,” says Sims. This Sunday, he predicts Adele will flaunt loose curls and tons of volume. To achieve Adele’s luscious locks, Sims recommends “curling hair with an extra-large curling iron barrel, wrapping hair section-by-section in opposite directions away from the face.” Once hair has been set, “sprinkle göt2b POWDER’ful volumizing styling powder directly onto roots, focusing on the crown. Then, toss your head over, massaging the powder deeper into your roots with your fingertips,” he adds. Toss your head back over and voila!


Over the past year, Rihanna has gone from black bob to red curls and back again! “This year, I predict Rihanna showing up with hair that will be fused with wheat and blonde, whose style will resemble Bridget Bardot’s sexy side-swept locks,” says Sims. To achieve this look, Sims suggests prepping hair with the göt2b fat-tastic dry shampoo to absorb oil and give limp strands “incredible volume that will last all night long.” Next, he recommends setting hair with jumbo-size hot rollers. “Once hair has been set, use your fingertips to break up the texture while keeping your side fringe heavy at the brow of your face.” Lastly, spray the finished look with göt2b rockin’ it encore hold hairspray.

göt2b hair stylers retail for $5.99 at Wal-mart, Drugstores (Walgreens, CVS and Rite-Aid), Ulta and food retailers nationwide.

Which of your treasured things has your child or pet destroyed?

 

My one year old loves to watch me put on makeup. Problem is when he gets his hands on any beauty product he tries to decorate his own face. I found my favorite lipstick (MAC Hot Tahiti) had been toddlerized he dug his little finger down the middle and hollowed it out.

This is not the first time one of my kids has eaten a lipstick or emptied a can of shaving cream playing in the foam. What your child or pet got into?

 

Come join the discussion, I would love to see photos!
