Twinkle, Twinkle, little nail
Only from Korea could we get a nail insert that lights up when you get a phone call, or make an electronic payment. This wafer-thin, radio activated non-powered LED illumination can be placed under a tip, under soak off gel, under decals, and is waterproof. Shazam. You’ll need to download an app so the chip recognizes your smart phone’s calls/texts/payments, but that’s easy enough. The Twinkle Nail doesn’t release until December, so we’re basing all of our information on marketing propaganda (please be real!). Check the slightly bizarre peer pressure focused video to find out how it can change your life. Certainly your manicure.

They were also gifted bags filled with great presents from the shows sponsors: Babyliss by Conair, Batiste dry shampoo, Nail polish from Morgan Taylor, Gold Toe Socks and a REEL CODE patch with a chance to win a gown from the MALAN BRETON collection.

“Work Appropriate” nail polish doesn’t have to be boring. Get to work with the best neutral nail polish: Zoya Godiva
We all know that “work appropriate” fashion and beauty office guidelines vary greatly from company to company depending on the business at hand. And fingernails are often viewed as best covered in clear nail polish, just buffed or a worn in classic French Manicure to error on the side of humdrum and boring but safe in some environments…Zoya PixieDustTM in Godiva solves this common workplace dilemma with a neutral nail polish color option that is modern, soft and stylish and works as well in the classroom, boardroom and courtroom as it does at a red-carpet movie premieres.
Here’s why… the textured, matte nude nail polish Godiva is beautifully buildable from semi-sheer as a single coat to full-coverage in just two coats, depending on your personal color intensity preference. No matter what, the look is always that of impeccably groomed and modest with just enough sparkle to keep things feminine (and a dare we say a bit sexy too – work it girl!).
The unexpected and huge bonus to Zoya’s PixieDustTM Godiva formulation is that the color dries quickly, requires no base or top coats and is long wearing – which saves precious time for busy professional women (and Moms) who always want and need to look their best in a variety of professional situations.
INSIDER PRO MANICURE TIP: If you would like to customize Godiva to perfectly match your skin tone, it’s easy. Simply add a drop or two of another Zoya PixieDustTM color, usually Chyna, as desired to the bottle and blend by gently stirring the two shades together. Wearing the color as a semi-sheer single coat also allows your natural skin tone to show through for subtle “naked nail” look that works beautifully with any light or dark skin pigmentation.
