The most expensive nail polish you won't regret buying

 For those of us who don’t get regular manicures, great nail polish is a must. I wandered upon my new favorite in Nordstrom while browsing Deborah Lippmann’s products. “Happy Birthday” is the coolest polish I have ever seen. It is made up of red, yellow, blue, orange, green purple, silver and gold mini confetti in a clear base. It almost looks like someone threw a bunch of confetti and it landed on your nails, hence the name “Happy Birthday”.

  

 I just had to have it. Even at $18. Now, you have to consider that this is a premium brand that contains no toluene, formaldehyde or DBP. It is sold out   online and Nordstrom says they can barely keep it in stock. The one negative – the sales lady told me it takes a while to get it off.
 Deborah Lippmann is a manicurist that started mixing up polishes for her celebrity clients like Mariah Carey, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cher.  She also has a line of hand and foot treatments, her “Rich Girl” hand and cuticle cream with SPF 25 is to die for. Here is what Happy Birthday looks like on:

Living Proof Full Thickening Cream- a review

Living Proof Full Thickening Cream

After seeing this product demonstrated on QVC, I thought I would give it a try. I have thin, fine hair and this leave-in treatment is supposed to make it appear thicker, with more body. It is pricey, $14 for a 1.8 ounce bottle, but you only need a pea-sized amount. I put a little more than that in my hair, being careful not too put it too close to my roots. It did work. My hair felt thicker without feeling like I had product build up. I thought it was great, until I went outside. The heat from the sun hits your hair and it emits a smell like you are at an outdoor fish market. Now, I had read reviews on makeupalley.com that complained about the smell, and I assumed it was too flowery or something. Good thing Sephora took it back. Living Proof, if you are listening, fix the smell and I will buy it again!
