15 Days Of Valentine's Nails!

My friend Sarah of WildEdgyNails and I have decided to do a special 15 day Valentine's Day nails challenge together and I will be posting a new Valentine's inspired nail creation of mine every day for the next 15 days. Be sure to check in every day to see what fun things I post!

Beyonce caught lip syncing at Inauguration

Wow! Beyonce has been accused of lip syncing at the recent presidential inauguration on Monday. She sang the American National Anthem and sounded fine but spectators noticed that the band was pretending to play their instruments and that is how they realized that the track had been pre recorded and then just played at the ceremony. Wow!

Lady GaGa at the President's Inaugural Ball!

Lady GaGa looked gorgeous on Monday at President Obama's inaugural ball. She was one of the performers including Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson. GaGa performed along with Tony Bennett. Looovee this style, feels like she is going back to her Fame roots for once. I hope she does more Fame inspired looks. It has always been my favorite era of hers. I love the platinum hair with bangs (Duh!) and cheery outfits... this one kind of reminds me of her old crystal dress. Artists evolving is a great thing, don't get me wrong, it is important for artists to always be changing and staying fresh, but I feel that is is also important for an artist to go back to their roots and revisit the time when they first became famous and realize what it was that got people hooked in the first place. She is always in such dark and eerie clothing that it is nice to see her in something light and cheerful looking! I got into her because she was just so cute looking and I like seeing that kind of look revisited every once in a while!

Fame nails - Version 2

I tried Fame inspired nails again but this time using a chevron shape at the tips rather than a french.


Wow, so much is happening in the Prince world right now and top of all that, all of a sudden an official website has gone up. It is a bit crazy because Prince has had problems with managing his websites in the past and has not had one in years, he had even declared the internet "dead" last year so this all comes as a shock. The website is very simple. It has 3 teaser videos and that is all for now. It has a 2013 concept with the name being, it is nice play on words and numbers as usual.

Hoping for more!!!

OPI - Liquid Sand

The new line from OPI just came out and it is a Mariah Carey line featuring a new type of polish called "Liquid Sand." My friend Sarah (WildEdgyNails) lent me one of her colors from the line called "Can't Let Go" and I tested it out.

It is a purple polish with lots of sparkles inside and a sandy, grainy texture. The idea is that you don't put any top coat over it in order to conserve its matte, textured look.
It wasn't too hard to apply. You just put your base coat and then apply 2 coats of the nail polish. I kept in mind that my friend Sarah expressed disappointment with the brush, but I did not find it bothered me so much. It seemed to feel a bit wider than the regular OPI polish brushes but it might just be the thickness of the nail polish making me think so.
Overall, I was not blown away by this nail polish at all. It is dull looking and not really the most appealing color. The texture on your nails is not pleasant. It feels like sandpaper and it is not a natural feeling to be wearing around all day.
I am not interested in buying any of these for myself. I am glad that I was able to try it without buying it!

Pirates of the Caribbean 5!!!

"Ahoy, me hearties! You haven't seen the last of Captain Jack Sparrow yet.

Batten down the hatches, moviegoers, because Johnny Depp is reprising his iconic role as the mischievous buccaneer in Pirates of the Caribbean 5, which Disney announced it's targeting for a July 10, 2015, release.

The Mouse House and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have hired veteran scribe Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can, Tower Heist) to pen the screenplay.

No word what the latest tale will be about. But previous sequels have revolved around Aztec Gold (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), the villainous Davy Jones and the mythical Kraken (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest), the Flying Dutchman and Davy Jones' Locker (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End) and the fabled Fountain of Youth (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides).

All told, the four Pirates of the Caribbean flicks have grossed a massive $3.7 billion in booty at the worldwide box office—not bad for a bunch of scallywags.

As Depp is still working on The Lone Ranger for Disney and the Pirates script has yet to be delivered, filming on the fifth installment is not expected to start rolling until 2014.

Pirates 5 will join the highly anticipated new Star Wars film as major tentpoles for the studio in the summer of '15.

In related news, Disney announced some updated release dates for some of its other high-profile movies. Among them is a live-action version of Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie, which has moved from March 2014 to July 2, 2014.

The Muppets 2 will now unspool on March 21, 2014, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, while Guardians of the Galaxy is slated to hit theaters several months later on Aug. 1 followed by director Brad Bird's eagerly awaited sci-fi epic, 1952, headlining George Clooney, which is set to open on Dec. 19, 2014."

Prince & The NPG to perform in Minneapolis!

Prince and the NPG are set to have a series of 6 open rehearsals at the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis.

The will be 2 open soundchecks Wednesday
2 Jam shows Thursday
and on Friday 2 shows featuring a "Surprise"

This was all announced yesterday. I wish I could attend these performances but I am not able to go to Minneapolis :(

The tickets have sold out in a day anyways!

Prince had promised that 2013 would be a big year and it seems like it will be true! It is only January and already he is playing shows. It is a big change from last year where he had kept himself very quiet and to himself.

All the speculation about who is "3rdeyegirl" is also an ongoing theme lately. A youtube and twitter account named "3rdeyegirl" had been posting unreleased Prince material until they had received a "cease and desist" letter from Prince's lawyers. But it is hard not to think that this is just Prince playing a game with all of us. It is a good marketing ploy to create a buzz and have people talking about what is going on and trying to guess who is behind all of it. It is funny because Prince is said to hate the internet and on an interview even claimed that "the internet is dead." He normally refuses to get involved with Facebook and Twitter and online promotion so this is a fun change and a bit hypocritical!

I think it's all in good fun and pretty excited to see and I can't wait for more. I hope he decides to perform other venues and come around somewhere closer so I can get a chance to go!

Emmy Rossum on Jimmy Fallon

Last night Emmy Rossum was a guest on Jimmy Fallon's late night talk show. She looked very good and spoke about her new TV show "Shameless," her new album "Sentimental Journey" which comes out on January 29th and he new cover of "Self" magazine. Way to go, Emmy. I am glad that her career is doing well. I am a fan of hers from "The Phantom of the Opera" movie as well as her part in the movie "The Day After Tomorrow."

Swan ring

So I really like this Swan Carved Amethyst Ring that is by Sevan Bicakci but I almost fainted when I saw that it costs $23,450!!! So much for that! Maybe I can find some sort of knock off.
