Hi guys!! Hope you are all having a fantastical weekend, I sure am! Today was the first day of Cosmprof North America. Cosmoprof is basically like heaven...I wish I could live there haha! It was rows of different brands, some that we all know of and some that I had never heard of. I have a few previews for you guys of some of what we'll see from China Glaze, Orly, OPI and Essie!
First stop of the day was at China Glaze, Krystal from Polish Galore hauled butt over there! They had out a bunch of new stuff out! If you follow me on twitter you probably saw a pic of some of them! I have nail wheels of a couple of these that I did not include pictures of...the crap lighting in my room is not doing them favors. I'll post accurate pics of them on Tuesday when I get home!
First up is Electropop this is China Glaze's Spring 2012 Collection! The colors in my opinion weren't all the unique. I think Kellie from Also Known As said they reminded her of the Up and Away Collection, I tend to agree with her. I am looking forward to seeing them on though!
Next up is the Eye Candy 3-D Glitters, these are part of China Glaze Holiday, and will be out in November! These are INSANE, like crazy awesome in person. I will need them all lol!
You might have seen this already, this is China Glaze Halloween 2011! I'm so SO excited for the glow in the dark!
You might have also seen these before, in person they were awesome! This is the Winter Collection called Let It Snow!
After a while of roaming I met up with the fabulous Kellie from Also Known As! We roamed around together and finally came across the Essie booth. You guys...Essie's Winter and Holiday collection are AWESOME!!
Cocktail Bling is Essie's Winter Collection. The names of these polishes were too cute. I have them somewhere but my room is looking like a tornado ran through it and I can't find the brochure right now.
Luxeffects is 1 of Essie's Holiday Collections. They also have another 6 piece collection coming out with re-promotes of some of the classic shades like Sexy Divide along with 3 polishes that were previously only available in their retail line of polish, those 3 are Dive Bar, Jamaican Me Crazy and Trophy Wife. So the exciting half of holiday is the Luxeffects below. I might have let out a little squeal of excitement when Essie's marketing rep was showing Kellie and I these. You guys...3rd from the left is a FLAKIE!! If I could have gotten away with stealing something from Cosmoprof it would have been a bottle of that!
Next up Kellie and I begged our way into the OPI booth, literally. It was by appointment only but we groveled our way in lol! Can I say I am so happy we did...we met SUZI!! ahhhh yes, THE SUZI! I was all cray cray fangirl and I'm sure she thought I was nuts but whatevs she is a nail polish rock star! haha
Guess what I was most excited to see? Muppets DUH! Funny story, I'm staying at planet hollywood and each room has memorabilia from a different movie. Mine is a Muppets room, I think it was fate lol. In person, the glitters....AWESOME! Also awesome was the one named after Fozzie which is a shimmer, it was this epic looking duochrome. I need it in my life ASAP!
They also had a new Serena set out, check out that orange-y pink! The red was also awesome, which didn't translate into my picture but you guys will love it!
Not pictured from OPI (since my camera decided to be a piece of crap) We will be seeing a gold shatter from OPI soon, they also had out the Pink Shatter for Breast Cancer, it looks gorgeous! A nice hot pink!
Last up is Orly. I was a little disappointed by their booth. They didn't have their fall collection out, I really wanted to see that in person. Fortunately they did have their holiday collection out, most of it seems passable to me...two of the shades are dupes of OPI colors. However, Andrognie ZOMG I can't even make words for how awesome it looks! Check out the bottle shot below!
Here is the whole display!
That's it for today, hopefully tomorrow I'll have fun Deborah Lippmann, Color Club and Zoya things to share. Right now I'm getting ready to go out to dinner with Katie from The Painted Nail. She was at the Nubar booth, I kind of love her. She is a riot!
Have a good night everyone!
