Who’s new mommys’ most valuable beauty ally? Essie Gel Couture!
A revolutionary series of nail lacquers that last up to 12 days – no lamps, no base coat needed. An easy two-step gel-like perfection that you can also do at home, and remove it as per usual. Yeap, that’s right.
You just pick any of the 42 shades, apply twice and finish with top coat for flawless gel-like shine. I did the test drive at Essie’s beauty salon, and IT WORKS. I normally mash fruits and veggies some 283 times a day -when I don’t change diapers and wash my baby’s tushy- so believe me when I say my nails did not chip at all. Favourite colour? Ruby red “Drop the Gown”.
“Get balanced, get personal”. Daisy London has recently launched a Chakra collection of jewels, born from the ancient Buddhist symbols of harmony and life balance. I took the Chakra test only to discover that I need to work with my Base Chakra (or Root Chakra), so this beautiful gold chain bracelet now adorns my left wrist -a smart
trick to buy yourself pretty blings, too.
A veteran in nail colours, Essie launched its 1000 edition! The sparkly vivid yellow hue “Aim to misbehave” is playful and unique and matches perfectly with the bright, summer sun.
And now, COOKIES: Best Belgian speculoos are found at Maison Dandoy, that also takes the coolest
packaging prize by far.
A vivid blue personalised pouch by Koku Concept will fit some new arrivals like Embryolisse (at last available in Greece, HURRAY) and my beauty colours for the rest of summer. Fuchsia, glittery blue, some more fuchsia.
Silver leather shorts by V Society.
Embryolisse “L’éclat du Regard” it’s a trick for immediately brightening eyes, something of a smoothing radiance booster that instantly reduces dark circles and puffiness.
Smoothing and glow boosting is also the new liquid care “Énergie De Vie“ by Lancôme, that fights all environmental factors that alter the appearance of the skin, such as high stress, lack of sleep, pollution and daily life excesses, offering a burst of energizing freshness.
Essie “Viva Antigua” nail polish.
Want my lips like my cake: Red.
Smith & Cult, that have taken beauty addicts by storm, has just entered the greek market
by exploding glossy colours in our everyday lives.
For me “The Warning” lip lacquer and “Kundalini Hustle” nail polish
will get the job done.
Red velvet cake by Jar. Sunglasses Givenchy Summer 2016 by Optical Papadiamantopoulos.
I don’t actually intend to wear them alltogether at once, but a few injections of baby or salmon pink
here and there damn! they are uplifting.
Scallop-edged pumps Chloe because mid-heels are the new sneakers, colour blocked shoulder bag Marc Jacobs, “Sunshine State of Mind”, “High Class Affair” and “Lounge Lover” nail lacquers by Essie Spring 2016, “Dragon’s Blood Fix Serum” by Nip+Fab.
And sometimes a haggard new mom needs to channel her inner 13yr old girl and opt for shameless rose bonbon.
In anything, as you may see.
