A new nail laquer hysteria is about to begin, cause Chanel has launched their new “It-Colours” for AW 2010! Two gorgeous nail colours named “Jade Rose 493″, a pale shiny pink and the mystic dark greyish violet “Paradoxal 509″. These shades are already available at bergdorfgoodman.com and in the shops in august!
Finally Topshop has launched their make up line including a seasonal trend collection which will only be available for a limited time and the basic “Core collection” which is focussed on a great range of colours and beauty essentials.

Due to the sad fact that the Chanel 505 Particulière is sold out everywhere and won’t be available before march 2010, i went looking for a similar shade of nail laquer today. Finally i found the shade “Channeleque” of the China Glaze Crème Couture Collection on ebay.com for only $2,95! So i just ordered this one to help me through the agonizing wait …
A natural, fresh looking hair trend for Spring 2010 is braided hair. From loose “just out of the bed” braids to complicated looking, long fishtail braids and russian inspired, front-braided hair styles. Braids are hot this season! And as Neil Moodie, great Vogue stylist, predicted: “It’s safe to say that braids are here to stay.” So choose your own favourite way, straight, wrapped, or loose -the options are versatile!

The Cotton Candy trend has extended from Make-up to finally hair colours. Many designers, like Comme des Garcons, Louis Vuitton, Luella and even Chanel combined Cotton Candy coloured hair with their Spring 2010 collections. I am not sure what to think about it yet… maybe patell coloured hair is really great for Spring 2010 fashion editorials – but for everyday, I would rather go for some streaks!

Alice in Wonderland version 2010, directed by Tim Burton, will be released in march5, 2010. The movie which is based on my beloved childhood book “Alices`s Adventures in Wonderland” and a novel called “Through the Looking-Glass” written by Lewis Carroll features stars like Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Anne Hathaway as Snow Queen and gorgeous Mr. Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter.
Brands like Paul & Joe, Urban Decay and O.P.I. cooperated with Disney and created limited-editions beauty boxes, lip treatments and nail colours inspired by the Alice`s journey through Wonderland.
Paul & Joe designer S.Albou has created a sugar sweet “Alice in Wonderland” beauty collection. The cute illustrated boxes include Blotting Paper, a small mirror and a lightly coloured Lip Treatment. The collection will be available at asos.com on February 25th and at Harrods on March 6th! Make sure you get one!

Most of the colours are very wearable for day and night! So don`t miss this edition!
O.P.I. has designed four limited-edition nail lacquer shades with named Absolutely Alice, Mad as a Hatter, Off with her Red and Thanks so Muchness.
“OPI is thrilled about tying in with Alice in Wonderland,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “This is a movie everyone will be talking about – and our magical colors were inspired by its brilliant on-screen imagery.”
These two shades are my favourites! What a sparkle! Thank you for the swatches alllaqueredup.com
My favourite nail colours for this season are brown shades. Starting with a dark, 20s inspired chocolate brown shade i really fell in love with the Chanel Le Vernis Particuliére 505 nail laquer with it`s creamy milk chocolate shade. Yummy! Unfortunalety it is sold out everywhere.It`s only available on ebay at the moment – but for 40,00 €!
So i went looking for alternative products and found some nice milky chocolate shades at O.P.I.
I even prefer the little darker version “You don`t know Jaques” from O.P.I. What do you think? Thank you for this great comparison! via
I found some great, floral patterned beauty accessoires on the Britishbeautyblogger.com website which is giving us a first view on the stunning MAC “Give Me Liberty” collection which will be launched in europe in April 2010.
