I have come to know and loooove Jessica Cosmetics.  The theme of her collections highlight our femininity and the latest Fall 2013 collection is no exception.  This time is dramatic and romantic.  Perfect for the sophisticated bold lady.  A Night at the Opera brings 6 intense colors perfect for this season and the next.  Make your mani a performance out for work or out for fun and steal the spotlight.

Without further ado... here they are:

First up is Opening Night, a debut-worthy fuchsia.

Pure : Cuticle Oil

As part of a product review, I received a cuticle oil pen from Pure of Nailcarehq.com the headquarters of nail care. 

I am fan #1 of cuticle oil.  For a veeeeery long time, i struggled with dry and cracked cuticles and nail biting.  My finger nails embarrassed me.  I had no confidence in my self and never felt pretty!  this is an everyday struggle to this day.  I have been able to overcome my vicious self thanks to you, my followers and the blogs I follow for always being there with words of support and encouragement and of course, cuticle oil. 

From time to time (especially stressed-out times) I still tend to get vicious.  

Using Pure, in only a few days my nails were longer, stronger and completely hydrated. 

Judge for yourself.  Both hands have gone through tremendous amount of stress and started in the same condition and one hand has been under the love and care of Pure the other hand completely neglected for a week.  Other than some cropping, these pictures are unedited. 

and is safe enough to eat. It's made from the following ingredients and people have actually taste it...

Jojoba Wax Ester
Grape Seed Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Tea Tree Oil
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin A Oil
Essential Oil Blend

I am not the only person that can say this.   Check out and Like their Facebook page for more before and after pictures and amazing giveaways. And of course, want to see results on your own hands.  Buy it HERE.

Ana of Nail Care HQ is super knowledgeable and you can tell she simply enjoys what she does.  Amazing personal interaction with her fans and top shelf customer service.  Cuticle oil pens come in your choice of scented and unscented.

 photo BarielleNudeNaughty2_zps07118d28.jpg  photo BarielleNudeNaughty3_zpsefe52744.jpg

Ahhh another awesome fall collection for review.
I can't be more excited about fall.

The collection is called Nude & Naughty but I think it should be Naughty Nudes ;)
I love nudes... it was more recently that I started adding color to my life but nudes and neutrals hold a special place in my heart.

First up is Very Bare:
Difficult to photograph but it's a light-white-pinkish perfect for that french manicure 
Very sheer.  used without base and needed 3 coats for full coverage and no streaks.

EEEEEK!!! FRENCH!!!! mani... using Barielle's Going to the Chapel.

Added some Viva La Nails decals for a more intricate design.  I am covering my pinky because it was nothing like the other nails.  wore this mani for several days and was filled with compliments :)

Pillow Talk also a gorgeous neutral.  2 coats.

Ok! Got off the french manicure frenzy and moved on with the neutral shades.  Next is No Not Now.... I have no idea where the name came from but made me chuckle.  :-p
This will be the perfect go to color for a touch of simplicity and elegance.
