Scarlett Johansson
complemented her deep navy dress with a deep blue nail color for a recent engagement. Her overall style was very simple, very classic, while her nails showed her fashion-forward thinking. A stunning blue nail color can really pull off a basic evening ensemble and even add a little sass to your everyday looks as well.

To copy Scarlett’s blue digits, I suggest checking out OPI’s Yoga-ta Get This Blue, Essie Bobbing for Baubles or Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Navy Baby.
China-Glaze-Colours-From-The-Capitol-Collection.jpgAre you as into The Hunger Games as I am? I have to admit, I’ve read the series four times and can’t wait for the movie to come out. And, as luck would have it, neither can China Glaze! For months, a nail polish collection was rumored—and now, there will be the Colours from the Capitol Collection!

The collection includes 12 polishes inspired by The Hunger Games. From Luxe and Lush (iridescent glitter that almost looks like glass particles) to Riveting (fiery orange), the collection includes something for everyone—no matter which district you may be rooting for.

The China Glaze Colours from the Capitol collection will launch in early March and will be available at sallybeauty.com. Each bottle will retail for $5.99.

Like any recovering Carrie addict, I have a slight obsession with Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo shoes. However, my bank account has conveniently stood in the way of me owning anything from the iconic brands, that is, until now. Jimmy Choo has entered the scent business with a perfume that has notes of Green, Tiger Orchid, Toffee and Sensual Indonesian Patchouli. The fragrance is described as feminine, luxurious and stylish, adjectives that I think describe the alluring bottle as well — I can totally picture it sitting pretty on my dresser!

You can buy Jimmy Choo Parfums Eau de Parfum for $55-$95 at Nordstrom.com.
Nails-Inc.-The-Donmar-Collection.jpgWe don’t ever really have boring nails. The more outlandish, the crazier the colors, the bolder the choices, the better. So is it any wonder we’re currently loving Nails Inc.’s The Donmar Collection?

Truth be told, we’ve been super in love with every nail polish by this British import for years … and we’re thrilled that it’s finally available at Sephora. But The Donmar Collection is pretty spectacular, because the two nail polishes work so impossibly well together it’s just impossible not to fall in love.

This collection includes Chelsea, a plum black, and The Donmar Overglaze Top Coat. Chelsea is striking on its own for its dark purplish black hue and creamy, glossy finish. And the top coat is definitely one of the coolest we’ve come across—chunky flecks of hand-cut red and black glitter particles turn Chelsea (or, really, any color) totally cool and holographic.

Nails Inc. The Donmar Collection retails for $20 at sephora.com.
Visine-Maximum-Redness-Relief-Formula.jpgWe’ve all been there. A zit that really actually isn’t so bad is so surrounded by redness, it makes the zit look 10 times larger than it is! Enter Visine Maximum Redness Relief Formula.

Now, we know you’re thinking this product isn’t for the skin — it’s for dry, itchy, red eyes that have had contacts in them for too long. Well, we’re here to tell you it’s got another use! Simply squirt a touch of this liquid onto the affected area and in no time, the redness disappears completely.

We’ve tried this on everything from miniscule dots to full-on, under the skin, seen from space pimples … and the result is the same EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. You don’t even need concealer! You will need to reapply a few times a day, but really—isn’t that a small price to pay for redness that disappears in an instant?

Visine Maximum Redness Relief Formula retails for $6.49 at drugstore.com.
