Which Nail Appliques Are Worth the Price Tag?

Nail Appliqués have never been hotter but don’t be deceived as not all are created equal. The market is pretty saturated with so many different styles that is easy to be won over by a design only to have it start peeling off within 12 hours of putting them on.

I’ve tried quite a few brands so do you want to see which ones survived the scrutiny? Click after the jump!

A.D.D. and Nail Polish

I’m not quite into winter and not quite into spring hues when it comes to nail polishes these days I'm just all over the map! So there's no point in talking about trends because mine are changing day to day and I don't see a pattern. So here are the five I’ve been jumping around the last few weeks.

From L to R:

OPI Nail Lacquer in On the Same Paige from the Brights Collection - $7.50
Nail Lacquer
in Grape Pop from the Up & Away Collection - $6.50 @
ZOYA Nail Polish
in Gwin from the Reverie Collection - $10 @
Foil FX Collection Nail Lacquer in Rage - $7.50 @
Nail Enamel Supplement Mineral
in P935 - $16 @

Speaking of, I have been wearing CND’s Asphalt since Sunday and my fingers and it’s now Friday morning and NO CHIPS WHAT-SO-EVER. I even had to help a friend move a room the other night, which usually totally does a mani in but this is holding up. So did CND perfect the formula when they tweaked the packaging? Wow, loving this!

Cybelesays Special Report – Trendspotting @ ISSE in Long Beach


Derrick-j It seems like I have a reality star sighting at every beauty convention I go to and I've decided I'm going to document it every time. There were two I saw at the International Salon and Spa Expo (ISSE). First I saw Real from Real Chance of Love with his long and lovely hair. Then, I went to visit the Brazilian Heat people and standing in their booth doing someone’s hair in front of an audience was none other than Derrick J from the Real Housewives of Atlanta! How excited was I?! You can tell I was but we were there to spot the trends, not go gaga over Ms. Derrick!


So what did I see? Lots of people! I usually go to this show on the Saturday, not the Sunday, because it is just too busy but I had to work so it was my only option. Yes, there was the usual fancy updos and hair styles, body painting and wow nails.
