Kate Middleton’s Nickname Becomes New Nail Polish Shade

Are you obsessed with the royals? Follow every move Kate Middleton makes? You’re in luck! There’s a new royal wedding-themed nail polish that you’re going to love!

This March, Butter London will release a glittery new shade – with a nod to Kate Middleton’s long-awaited nuptials – called, “No more Waity, Katie.”

The limited-edition nail laquer is grayish-blue and glitter-infused, according to Nonie Créme, Butter London’s creative director. And of course, it gives a cheeky nod to Kate’s pre-engagement nickname, “Waity Katie.”

The nail care company, a cult favorite that prides itself on selling chemical-free products, will ship the nail polish internationally. It will retail for around $22.

Pre-ordering on zuneta.com for “No More Waity, Katie” will begin in the first week of March, and the product will officially launch the second week of the month.

No word on whether or not Kate will wear the polish herself!

PS: For $22 – it better be something fantastic. I can’t imagine ever spending that much on one bottle of polish! It better glow with royalty!

Zoya introduces ‘Black Swan’ inspired finger nail polish!

Funny how life works out sometimes…

Growing up in the Soviet Union, a little girl named Zoya dreamed of being a ballerina and dancing to Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. Now, many years later, after a life immersed in music as a classical pianist and becoming a star in world of cosmetics, dreams have come true.

Enter the recent theatrical release of Black Swan. Early on in the film as the lead dancer, Nina (portrayed by Natalie Portman), prepares in her dressing room for a gala where she will be revealed to the masses as the new Swan Queen, a solitary elegant bottle of nail polish briefly takes over the screen. This is where the line between a little girls fantasy and reality blissfully blurs. The bottle shown is Zoya Nail Polish in a delicate shade of pink named Bela. (This is the perfect nail polish color! It is this beautiful baby pink color – I LOVE IT!)

Zoya Nail Polish can be found worldwide at quality salons and spas or online…http://www.zoya.com

Available in Bela and over 300 other long-wearing, beautiful colors, the healthy formula of Zoya Nail Polish is completely free of formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor.

Zoya is the new color of fashion!

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have Number 6!

For whatever reason, over the last year – my nails went from being strong and healthy to weak and brittle. I upped my vitamins, and headed to Target to find a solution for my unhealthy nails! I went straight for the Sally Hansen Complete Care line. I zeroed in on Complete Care Extra Moisturizing 4-IN-1 Treatment, which is a little miracle in a bottle! It fills the ridges, strengthens, improves growth and has a beautiful glossy shine!

I have used it both on it’s own, and as a base/top coat. I absolutely LOVE this product. It’s a bit on the spendy side (around $10) but it’s absolutely worth it. My nails stopped splitting and cracking, and they’ve been noticeably stronger!

This makes my Christmas Must-Have list because it’s such a great product. At around $10 – it would make the perfect stocking stuffer!


An additional perk is when you use it as a base/top coat, your polish lasts so much longer! I can wear fingernail polish for a week now before it starts chipping, and that’s quite a feat! This product makes fingernail polish last longer!

Complete Care Extra Moisturizing has everything that Complete Care Original has to offer PLUS an enriched complex of Avocado Oil and plant extracts that help hydrate, condition and restore flexibility to dry brittle nails. MORE! More »
