Loving Right Now

Right now I’m loving soft baby blue nail polishes. In particular these colors shown below: Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air, NARS Kutki, Dior Glacier, Dolce & Gabbana Anise and OPI My Pointe Exactly. All photos by me.

Loving this week:

  • Chanel Illusion Dโ€™Ombre Riviรจre, a soft seafoam green shimmer as seen on Cafe Makeup and The Non-Blonde (I heard rumors that the latest Asia Le Blanc Release will be available at Nordstrom for their Anniversary Sale) 
  • Cupcakes and Cashmere has the most creative beauty storage ideas
  • The Coveteur covers Jessica Stam’s look, Hair and Make-Up Courtesy of Jen Atkin and Lauren Andersen
  • Rouge Deluxe reports six new Armani Eyes to Kill shades will be released soon
  • Into the Gloss has an awesome video of WAH Nails in NYC
  • MAC Hey, Sailor! reviews and swatches can be seen on Temptalia and Yuki’s Lazy Channel
Also, The Beauty Look Book just turned 3! It all started with a guest post at Makeup and Beauty Blog. Thanks from the bottom of my heart to Karen at MBB, Karla Sugar, The Non-Blonde, London Makeup Girl and Rouge Deluxe – you were all my inspiration when I first started. Special thanks to Cafe Makeup for also keeping me going, in particular this past year.

Three years, 7.2 million hits, 3,200+ google followers and a Twitter account later, I still feel like I’m just getting started. I am forever grateful to everyone for their support, comments, tweets, sweet e-mails and for reading my blog each week. I’ve made new friends, discovered new brands, started getting into perfumes, learned new techniques, figured out how to paint my own nails properly, and have learned so much from so many of you. Thank you for your support!

    Congratulations on 3 years Sabrina! Your site is one of my go to blogs – I really enjoy your writing style and the way you display swatches. And thank you for blogging! I say thank you because I rarely shop in store and there are many things I've bought or not bought after reading your reviews.

    Congratulations on 3 years! You have such a beautiful blog with incredible swatches, so thank you for the always gorgeous and accurate inspiration. All of these polish colors are lovely, I think the Nars needs to be in my collection!

    Oh, how I do hope the rumor about Nordstrom getting the Le Blanc Fleur de Lotus collection is true! I loved last year's rose themed Le Blanc collection and was so pleased that Nordstrom was able to bring that stunning collection to us. Lumiรจre Perlรฉe is still one of my favorite highlighters and who can forget the gorgeous Rose Tourbillon? All the colors were perfect for me and the Fleur de Lotus collection promises to be the same. I've got my fingers crossed ๐Ÿ™‚

    How remiss it was of me not to wish you and your blog a happy third birthday. I was so elated over the rumor about Fleur de Lotus, that I forgot to say the most important thing of all: Happy Birthday! I've been reading your blog for well over two years now and am always impressed by your refined taste, honest and fair reviews, excellent photos and swatches, and the genuine kindness that you project. Your blog is a true gem as are you :-). Here's wishing you many more years of blogging success!

  10. May 21, 2012 / 12:50 am

    Happy third birthday. I so appreciate the work you put in to make this blog beautiful. It is always helpful when contemplating a purchase and fun to peruse even when I am not.

    By the way Sabrina, have you checked out the two aquamarine/turquoise nail polishes by L'oreal? I believe they are called Club Prive and Now you Sea Me, really pretty and rather close to Dior St. Tropez, I still decided to keep them anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can't wait to get my hands on Anise, I've had my eye on it for a while I hope its not LE..

  14. May 21, 2012 / 2:54 am

  21. May 21, 2012 / 10:58 am

    The NARS Kutki looks so bright in the bottle, almost like a turquoise but on your nails it looks more like a baby blue color. Interesting.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. May 21, 2012 / 11:00 am

    Happy Anniversary! Congratulations! You were one of the very first blogs I started following and LOVING! Don't know what I'd have done without you! Well possibly been a little less broke but aside from that…. LOL

  23. May 21, 2012 / 11:01 am

    congratulations Sabrina, 7.2 million hits – that's phenomenal! I'm sure you most of them are from the 'fans' that come back time and time again for you beautiful swatches and detailed reviews.

    ….I truly do hope Nordstrom does release Riviere and Fleur De Lotus. I want those items!
