I had never tried Milani nail lacquer and was really excited to try their Rockstar line. I love the colors and have always been a huge fan of glitter polish. Milani does not disappoint with super shiny glitter and super vibrant colors its the perfect way to add a little something to your wardrobe.

One of my favorites is Silver Dazzle a really pretty slate gray glitter color.

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 »

I’m in love with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Top Coat

I never EVER have the time to let my nail polish dry, so I’m always on the look out for products that speed the process up. I picked up Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri - and I’m in love! It dries my polish in minutes! (It says 30 seconds, but that’s not true at all). Give it like 5-10 minutes and your nails will be completely dry.

And that’s not the best part. It’s also anti-chip, so your polish will look amazing for much longer! I painted my nails on Monday – and today there’s not one single chip! That’s quite a fete for me, I’m very hard on my nail polish. During this holiday season when you’re cooking and cleaning – and washing your hands more than usual – you can count on this product to keep your nails gorgeous!

I picked it up for under $5 at Rite Aid. You can find it at your local drug store!


Katy Perry’s New OPI Spring 2011 Nail Polish Collection Ad Campaign

Katy Perry has ditched the Elie Saab wedding dress and gone back to her fun-loving (and sexy) roots in the playful new campaign for her OPI nail collection, Chic Profile reports.

Posing against a vibrant backdrop featuring a peace sign drawn with nail polish, the “Firework” singer wears a purple wig adorned with pink gerber daisies, plus leather hot pants and a beaded and fringed California crop top thrown over a pink bikini.

Russell Brand is so thanking his lucky stars right now.

As we previously reported, the four-color collection will launch in January at Ulta.

Available for $9 each, the shades include Teenage Dream (a plummy pink sparkle), Not Like the Movies (metallic silver), Last Friday Night (a Crayola blue glitter), and The One That Got Away (a deepest dark berry purple).
