I’ve tried it on my fingers. I’ve tried it on my toes. I’ve tried it when I’m super pale. I’ve tried it when I’m super tan (well, super tan for me, which is still fairly pale). In any case, this is THE. BEST. PINK. NAIL. POLISH. AROUND.
Two coats yield the creamiest, prettiest, most opaque hot pink color. Plus, the formula is fantastic and lasts for at least a week with no chipping—more like three or four weeks on toes! Really, how could you not fall in love?

You know those products that are probably sitting around your house—or maybe your parents’ house—without you giving any thought to them in years? Well, maybe it’s time to take a second look, especially when it comes to Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.
I recently picked up a tube of this that was laying around my mom’s house, and I have to say, I was totally amazed at how many beauty-related things it could do. The two that really spoke to me, though, are these:
1) It works as a fantastic lip balm! It softens and smooths even the most chapped lips instantly.
2) It moisturizes dry knees and elbows! Mine tend to be super ashy and scaly, but with a couple days of rubbing Vaseline on them? Like a baby’s bottom.
And the best part? It’s under $5! What could be better?
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly retails for $3.09 at diapers.com.
Up first? Brightly hued eye makeup. We’re talking green and blue, sure … but it’s going so much further than that this season. Think red, think orange, think yellow, think the entire color wheel and the entire rainbow! From Moschino Cheap and Chic and Vivienne Westwood Red Label to Miu Miu and Rebecca Taylor, eyes were the focus on the runways. This look definitely isn’t for the faint of heart, but it is a ton of fun with only a couple sweeps of an eyeshadow brush.
To get the look, try these eyeshadows!
