POP Nail It! China Glaze Crackle Glaze Collection

17 Feb

Okay, this is just getting ridiculous. I’ve just managed to get my mitts on the O.P.I Black Shatter Polish, have a never ending list of polishes I want from other lines and now I find out that China Glaze have come out with a Crackle Glaze Collection for Spring 2011. The collection will include six new nail colors with crackle effect.

An innovative technology allows you to play with a wide array of color combinations and achieve an edgy, new wave look. This unique formula was developed to give your nails a “crackled” design over traditional nail color. Contrasting colors are used one over another to achieve a deconstructed shatter look that takes place right before your eyes. Instant art for your nails!

Uh, make a statement? You bet it does!

The collection comes with these six crackle colours:

  • Lightning Bolt – White Crackle
  • Black Mesh – Black Crackle
  • Broken Hearted – Pink Crackle
  • Cracked Concrete – Grey Crackle
  • Fault Line – Purple Crackle
  • Crushed Candy – Teal Crackle

Say whaaat? Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Did someone just say that China Glaze has just totally kicked O.P.I’s ass and upped their Black Shatter big time?! Wow, great minds must think alike then ;P

To top it off, China Glaze is free of DBP, toluene, and added formaldehyde. Win!

Which one’s do you want?

One of them? All of them?


Colonic Hydrotherapy. Ha.

31 Jan

Sooo, a Colonic Detox haaay? Yuuupp, I went there. And boy, am I glad I did! Now I’ve just got to figure out how to make this post readable and try to not give you the shits (I’m sorry, I had to). Colonics is a very hard topic to write about. Some people hate it, some people love it, some people are confused by it, some just would rather not think about it and some people are just plain against it. I used to fall into the “confused/not-really-sure-about-it-would-rather-not” category but I now fall into the “love-it-in-a-strange-way” category. Haaaah.

Let me get some background info out of the way first before I launch into some serious poo talk. I’ve always found colonic hydrotherapy interesting. Always wanted to know more about it, what it does, how it does it, other people’s experiences and what they thought of it. Not to mention what actually comes floating out. Eww haha, too much? I’m sorry! You’ve been warned though, this post is not for the faint hearted or poo averted. It will also contain a whole heap of really bad puns. Even though I was really interested in finding out what it does and how, I found that no-one really wanted to talk about it or even confess that they’d done it. Hm, strange I know. Colonic cleansing not a popular dinner party conversation? Strange, I know! So I thought I’d do my own little investigating online and came across these (1, 2, 3) little gems written by Yasmin Turker and Zoe Foster from PRIMPED.com.au. They pretty much convinced me that I needed to get onto the colonics stat.

POP Tip: Super Quick Face Brightening

25 Jan

Ever looked into the mirror at 2pm and felt a wave of shock and horror ripple through you? I know I have. My concealer has usually evaporated into thin air and my nose has started to resemble Rudolph’s. However, here’s a nifty 60 second trick to instantly brighten and revitalise your make up and face.


There are five area’s on your face that concealer will help to make look a whole lot better.

1. The inner corner of your eyes.

2. Outer corner of your eyes.

3. Around your nose, on either side of your nostrils.

4. Under your mouth in the slight hollow.

5. Either side of your mouth where your laugh lines are.

Just dab a little concealer, preferably a brightening one, on each of these areas, blend it in and poof! Instantly refreshed looking!
