Have you ever fallen in love with a nail color so much that you wanted to paint your walls with it? Yes, ladies, I said walls. Well, OPI Nail Laquer has the solution for you. They have teamed up with Ace Hardware to offer an exclusive palette of some of their most iconic colors in Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One.
In a first of its kind collaboration, the new OPI Color Palette by Clark+Kensington features 18 of OPI’s most beloved shades paired with complementary colors from the Clark+Kensington line to create a color palette to liven up your home. If nothing else, this rather unexpected pairing may just lure some more women into their local Ace Hardware store in search of Don’t Touch My Tutu, I Eat Mainely Lobster, or Can’t Find My Czechbook.
The whole nail creativity trend is on fire right now. So it’s no surprise that OPI is thinking outside of the box by teaming up with Clark + Kensington and bringing bold nail colors to the home. Hmmm…just envisioning my living room with Nein, Nein, Nein on the walls. Bravo OPI!
With 3,200 Ace stores nationwide, you can find one practically around the corner. Or pick your fave shades of ‘Glamour by the Gallon’ at clarkandkensington .
If the idea of owning limited-edition exclusives from premier brands appeals to you, then try your hand at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, which is sort of a virtual pilgrimage for any lover of beauty.
From covetable brands like Bobbi Brown to staples like Clarisonic, there are steals that even the most ardent coupon-clipper will applaud. Here are some of our favorite steals and deals:
Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude Color Set ($85): Normally priced at $205, this color set gives you 12 swell eye shadows, a full size gel eyeliner, and smokey eye mascara. With nude makeup a perennial favorite, the trick is knowing which brand to splurge on, and we say Bobbi’s is worth it because of the staying power, quality pigments, and range of finishes (matte, shimmery, sparkly).
butter London 10 Piece Set ($49): This set, valued at $104 includes a gamut of solid and metallic shades from Brick Lane (an orange brick shade) to Petrol (an oil-slick-like overcoat) as well as a base and top coat.
Clarisonic Mia 2 St. Tropez Bikini Set ($159): Valued at $231, this set includes a travel bag, the Mia 2, a sensitive brush head replacement, and a refreshing gel cleanser.
La Mer The Refreshing Collection ($295): This set, valued at $386 contains a soft cream, regenerating serum, eye balm, and hydrating facial application, all in a beautiful floral bag.
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Home & Away Travel Set ($75): This set is perfect for the jetsetter, and includes a 32 oz. jumbo plus a 2.5 travel size. There is also an Ultimate Hydration Set for parched skins ($85).

If you love fragrance and Sofia Vergara, like I do, tune into HSN tonight at midnight (EDT) and see the Modern Family star kick off the launch of her first-ever fragrance, Sofia by Sofia Vergara.
The eau de parfum is a juicy oriental flora fragrance that takes inspiration from Sofia’s native Colombia.
“The scent reminds me of Colombia because in Colombia flowers are everywhere. You walk into a doctor’s office and there are flowers. You go to your mother’s house and there are flowers,” the lovable and sexy actress exclusively told Beauty in the Bag.
Described as a sparkling cocktail, Sofia by Sofia Vergara features top notes of blackberry, sparkling cassis buds, and plum; mid notes of purple violet, Colombian rose, and Colombian orchid; and base notes of earthy woods, vanilla, and sandalwood. It’s all about energy and sexy magnetism.
“We used orchids and roses because those are my favorite flowers, and they’re Colombian,” she exclaimed. “I wanted to bring a little bit of who I am, my ethnicity, and where I’m from. I thought is was very cool to be able to get flowers from Colombia actually into the perfume.”
Gosh, Sofia, you make us proud of Colombia too.
All this floral delight is contained in a clear bottle that was inspired by the actress’s favorite stone—an emerald. The eau de parfum is available in two sizes, 50ml for $48 and 100ml for $55. The collection also includes Shimmer Body Lotion, 200ml for $30.
