Roughles Collection by Nicole by OPI

Hey Everyone! 


Nicole by OPI is always coming out with new collections! That is why I love them. They never get bored of the same old thing. Always changing and trying to stay on top of the latest trends, if not creating them! 

This Spring/Summer season they will be launching a new mini collection called Roughles. Its actually pronounced "Ruffles" but considering the texture of these gorgeous lacquers, its a fun play on words. Just like how they name all of their polishes and collections fun things. 

Roughles is comprised of four new textured nail lacquers featuring speckled, pastel shades of purple, pink, turquoise and yellow. In love with all these colours! Perfect pastels for Easter/Spring! When they dry, they leave behind a fun and unique textured finish unlike any i've ever seen. The best part? No top coat needed! 

Nicole by OPI products are great because they are of salon quality without the salon price. I've had my manicure on for four days now and not a single chip or need to touch up! 

Rock the Look

Hey Everyone! 

When I was younger, my hair was pin straight. In high school, I barely had to straighten it at all. A few minutes and it was good. Really healthy, but no life. My Mom however, had pretty beachy style waves and on most days, looked like pretty loose romantic curls.  

When I reached my twenties, my hair (and nails, since they run on the same vitamins) began to change. I noticed it began to get more shape, more wave, move volume, more frizz. Straightening it became a chore because it almost doubled in time and if I stepped out into humidity or dampness, well then you can just forget about it! I began to get wavy, beachy curls, just like my Mom. Alas! So much less work and still looks pretty all. The. Time! It took a lot of trial and error trying out products that worked with my style, not against it. I figured out that I needed a creamy formula, not a crunchy drying one (think mousse hair circa 1989). I found one and I have been using it for years. You know what they say, "don't fix what ain't broke!" 

Recently I had the opportunity to try out a new line from one of the pioneers of hair styling. Its called the 'Girls With Curls' hair line and it is new from Dippity-Do. Ahhh-mazing! So far, I have tried out the Leave-In Curl Defining Cream. I wanted to try each styling product out at a time (so everytime I wash my hair, I will try a new one) so I knew how each would react with my mane. 

Enriched with natural Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Aloe and Vitamin E to calm and smooth frizz while nourishing and defining curls for springy, long-lasting bounce.

This defining cream is so nice! It smells amazing and although a light-weight cream, once applied to your hair, you can feel your hair changing. It feels very nourishing and wraps each strand. This defining curl cream is:

  • Colour safe, paraben free.
  • A beauty balm to nourish and style dry, frizzy hair.
  • Ideal for thick to medium, curly or wavy hair.
  • Humidity resistant, the specialized curl shaping polymers control volume and frizz. 
  • Can be used on damp or dry hair to refresh style as needed.
