LBD Spring Collection 2017 - Tulip Blossom


Hi loves!
It's a little premature for me to say this,  but I can't wait for school to end. I know we're in spring break right now,  but I can't help rushing things along.  My little man is now a teen, and his big brother graduates from high school next month.  I feel like I'm going back to college all over again.  I think I'm more excited than he is, as I'm looking forward to reliving the best years of my life vicariously through him and his friends.  As an added bonus I will retrieve space in my home when he leaves.  That means reduce,  reorganize,  and redecorate.  That's always fun.

Now let's get to the polish.  This is the newest polish in the Little Black Dress Nail Lacquer 2017 spring collection.  It's called Tulip Blossom and it reminds me of Easter baskets and... well, Tulip blossoms,  hence the name,  lol. It has an iridescent glow in which you can see hints of blue.  Tulip Blossom can be found in the LBD store here.

Watch for the next spring color next week.  Check back here or follow LBD on Facebook.

April's Fool - New Spring Color By LBD Nail Lacquer


Hi loves,

I missed you guys madly, but much of my time lately, has been taken up with planning and mixing  colors for the new spring season.  Although this winter was unusually mild for my area, I think the seasonal moodiness bug hit me pretty hard this year.  And now that we can safely say that the frigid winter weather is gone for good, my winter blahs are scampering away with the breeze.  I'm relieved to shed my boots and winter paraphernalia in exchange for sleeveless tops, thinner fabrics and open shoes. I feel like my whole body is breathing a sigh of relief.  I wanted my spring collection, this year, to reflect the new, crisp, clean freshness of spring.  And nothing does that better than soft pastels.  The first in my collection is April's Fool, a bright orange shimmer polish that flashes fuchsia in the light.  This color is currently available in the LBD shop and you can find it here.

I have several colors trickling out this month so keep a watch out for new LBD pastels with an iridescent sheen.

Ciao Bellas!

March Pandora's Box - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hi friends, you're just in time to plan your nail art for St. Patrick's Day.  Something green, something to attract that pot of gold, something to reflect a rainbow? I can probably think of a hundred ways to prepare for March 17th.

Today I have an entire set of great items that might pique your interest and get you excited about the possibilities.

This is the March Pandora's Box Collection and it's all set for pre-order. This means that you will receive your Box early March.  You get 2 bath products (a bath scrum and lotion bar), an eyeshadow (a wearable gold), cute clover nail wraps, and 2 nail polishes (one black with glittery flecks of copper and gold, and the other a kelly green linear holo with gold glitter.

You can find a link to Athena and Aphrodite's shop for more details, and to pre-order a box for yourself or a friend...or anybody who has a birthday in March.

New Valentine's Day Polishes

Hello hello hello!

We're half way through the first month of 2017, and I'm already jumping ahead to February. I'm excited about two new Valentine's day polishes due to release February 1st.  These polishes bring an elegant luxury to the romantic holiday,  that's often claimed for young love.  Well, there's another side to the story.  You don't have to be young lovebirds sharing sweet sentiments to enjoy Valentine's day.  Love exists in all walks of life for the young and the not so young, those of high status and those of meek living.  For every religion,  culture and gender.  Love touches us all, and these polishes touch on the elegance of love.



Since red is a traditional color associated with love, this first polish doesn't fall short of expectation. Rouge Luxe takes the tradition a step further, adding subtle shimmer, and soft fuchsia undertones.







Posh brings a luxurious sophistication to the day, perfectly blending gray and beige and adding slight hints of soft lavender. Posh is a trendy alternative to neutral, and is suited for elegant evenings and classy venues.





These polishes will be sold individually and in a gift set including a glass nail file, a four-sided buffer and a cuticle oil.  These pics do little to reveal the nuances of these luxurious polishes, so stop by the online store on February 1st for a better look.

Ciao for now!

O.P.I 2017 Spring And Summer Releases

Good afternoon loves,


Today I have a quick peak at not one, but two new collections by O.P.I First is the 2017 Fiji Spring collection that will be released this month.  This collection of 12 polishes contains a plethora of great colors. Some springy, and some not so springy, which, imo, makes for a versatile and complete collection.  

Let's take a closer look.


A few perfectly spring, Easter colors,  a few deeper hues, a traditional red,  and a couple neutrals. You guys know how I go crazy over O.P.I. polish names.  Well, as usual, they did not disappoint.

Two-timing the Zones – vibrant pink
Living On the Bula-vard! – punchy red
Gettig Nadi On My Honeymoon – hibiscus pink
Polly Want a Lacquer? – lavender
Do You Sea What I Sea? – shimmering ocean blue
Is That a Spear In Your Pocket? – tropical teal
I Can Never Hut Up – iridescent gray
Super Trop-I-Cal-I-Fiji-istic – reflection of sea and sky
Suzi Without a Paddle – cool blue
Coconuts Over – subtle taupe
No Tan Lines – warm sunrise orange
Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet – radiant yellow

This collection covers the spring, and it tasks is right into summer colors.

But alas, there's more.  The 2017 O.P.I. Summer California Dreaming collection,  has great shades for the summer.  The two collections together could complete your warm season stash for this year. But, of course, you wouldn't let these collections stop you from greedily scooping up other polishes for the season.

This 12 polish collection concentrates on the warmer side of the color wheel. Reds, pinks, oranges, and neutrals.



This is Not Whine Country
GPS I Love You
Malibu Pier Pressure
To the Mouse House We Go!
Me, Myselfie & I
Santa Monica Beach Peach
