London 2012 Summer Olympics Nail Art


I’m watching the summer Olympics as I write this blog post, and I can’t help but notice many of the Olympians are sporting some patriotic nail art. Enter Google.

Here are some nail art designs I found Olympic swimmers are sporting this summer Olympics:

USA’s Elizabeth Beisel sparkles with glittery red and blue nails

Gotta love Great Britain’s Aimee Willmott Olympic rings

Check out Italy’s Stefania Pirozzi colorful nails

Visit Buzzfeed for more Olympian nail art designs.

Do you like any of these designs? Are your nails showing some Olympian love?


NY Fashion Week Get The Look: NYX Cosmetics at Imitation by Tara Subkoff


New York makeup artist Tina Turnbow for NYX Cosmetics created the striking look seen at the Imitation by Tara Subkoff presentation

“The makeup for the Imitation presentation was inspired by designer, Tara Subkoff’s love of YSL, Helmut Newton and Debbie Harry,” said Tina Turnbow, Makeup Artist for NYX Cosmetics. “We collaborated together to create a look by NYX Cosmetics that was bold, yet distinctly feminine. I used dark shades of brown and taupe to give the eye dimension and then rimmed with black, kohl liner to enhance it and make it really pop. Because the eyes had a lot of shine and dimension, I wanted to keep the lip matte, but create something slightly different than the flat, bold color we’re seeing all over the runway. Therefore, I used a mixture of rust and grape colors that melded together for a unique finish and then blurred the edges for a modern 70s feel.”

Products Used (All products are NYX Cosmetics):

Face: Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation

Cheeks: Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation

Eyes: Jumbo Eye Pencil in Chocolate

Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries

Cream Shadow in Suede

Cream Shadow in Chocolate

Collection Noir Kohl Kajal Black Liner

63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards – Rashida Jones Makeup Look Breakdown


Rashida Jones stepped onto the red carpet at the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards looking striking and elegant. Her red carpet look was created with the help of Makeup Artist Jo Strettell for Maybelline New York. Jo was inspired by Rashida’s vivacious personality and created a look using Maybelline New York’s latest products. To complement her dusty pink dress, Jo kept Rashida’s makeup classic and pretty. A dramatic eye and vibrant lip added unexpected edge and modernized the look.

I just love Rashida Jones. When I found out her makeup look for the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards consisted of Maybelline products, I knew I had to share with you all. I just love it when celebrities use drugstore products for big events!
