NYC Fashion Queen Collection: Part 2: Crystal Couture

**press sample**

As seen in Part 1 of this collection, NYC brings an array of pretties this fall.  Now add a stunning sparkle to your nails.  Large specs of glitter suspended in color make it perfect on bare nails or for layering over your favorite polish.  The special formula dries quickly, and the flat control flow brush gives a professional application every time.  With royal shades this polish adds noble glam in a flash.

I loved the sparkle sooo much that I decided to wear them bare.  All seen here in two coats.

Ruby Queen
This is more of a hot pink than a ruby red and my fave so far wore it for about two straight weeks because of how many compliments were received.

Blue Majesty
(sighs) am in love with this blue sparkle... I hope you don't start to believe that my love for nail polish is a bit promiscuous.  But ahhhh (sighs)

Finally: a solemate

**press sample**

I love high heels, however, I am one of the first ones to admit that you can't wear them everywhere, trust me on this, it took me a long time to accept this fact.   Try wearing them to an outdoor event and sink in grass, as if you were preparing the ground for seeding, walk through tiled floors, say at the airport and you better slow down or get ready for a split.  Gravel? risk your shoes or your ankles, both are just as bad, grates, cracks and many other surfaces that are a detriment to good shoes.  

But this has changed.  Meet Solemates High Heeler, a revolutionary product to shoe lovers.  Designed to protect heels from all surfaces.  Discreet and easy to use, the Solemates High Heeler attaches easily to most stiletto and kitten heels to prevent you from sinking into the grass at your next outdoor soiree or getting stuck in pavement cracks or sidewalk grates.  It does not cause damage to your shoes and does not compromise the look.

Even my friend, who cannot walk in heels (please don't tell her I said that) found Solemates High Heeler helpful in maintaining her balance while on the heights of a sexy shoe :) 

 photo solemates-1_zpsddf94574.jpg

They come in three sizes (narrow, classic and wide.  You can wear them just about everywhere walk tall and don't settle for wedges unless that's the look you're going for.  :) 
 photo sole-mates-high-heeler_zps4b5d610b.jpg

It is really sad to see all your good shoes suffer.  No other pair of shoe of mine will have to go through this again  :) 
Check them out.  and they're only $9.95

 photo solemates_zps2ecbf540.jpg

I didn't even feel them while walking and it works as stated... no more prepping the ground for seeding whether I go to a BBQ or a wedding or whatever outdoor event.  I can still wear my good shoes and we all know how good that feels.

Get your own! Save your shoes, save the look!

NYC New York Color: Red Lips

**press sample**

 photo NYCColor_zpsdbaea298.jpg
NYC New York Color has sent me two samples of their latest lip colors.

 photo IMG_5920_zps45d43292.jpg

First up is the city proof twistable lip crayon.  Perfectly outline lips, non-greasy nor sticky and lasts up to five hours *
Normally, long lasting lip crayons are dry and chip off and I have to reinforce with lipgloss for that nice, healthy shine.  This one feels smooth, hydrating long lasting color and shine.  It glides and perfect for on the go (no pencil sharperner needed).  Highly pigmented and available in 12 colors.  Seen here is Roosevelt Island Red

 photo IMG_5926_zps92043617.jpg  photo IMG_5930_zpsac145118.jpg  photo IMG_5929_zpsfc567089.jpg

Next up is moisturizing, long wearing lipstick.  For day or night.  High impact color infused with a touch of silk, the creamy, rich formula glides onto lips for a smooth, velvety finish that doesnt feel sticky or slick or like you just ate fried chicken.
Seen here is Traffic Jam.. surely to stop traffic with this sexy red.
