I’ve long held that it’s not plate tectonics, electromagnetic fields or the earth’s core that make the world go ’round. It’s green nail polish, and if green polish ever disappeared, the world would simply stop.

Green nail polish is like when Mom makes your favorite dish. It just makes everything better.


While it’s not officially billed as a mood elevator, the new $25 Vert D’Orient La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer works like one for me. The formula must be packed with liquid positivity.

It’s like a leisurely stroll outside on a perfect spring day… Catching a glimpse of this creamy bluish green on my tips or toes makes me grin like Adam Levine when he finds an extra tight-fitting pair of skinny jeans. In other words, a BIG grin. πŸ™‚

And Vert D’Orient’s allure for me doesn’t end with its color. I also love its wide, flat brush because I can cover an entire nail with it in one or two sweeps. Couple that with its smooth texture (which feels almost like I’m painting my paws with half-and-half) and 10-minute drying time, which isn’t half bad, and all signs point to grand.

PRICE: $25 for a 0.34-ounce bottle
AVAILABILITY: Available now online and at YSL counters

Hey, friend. G’morning! I hope you slept well last night and that today got off to a good start.


So random, but I stumbled upon an old Spice Girls playlist listening to music last night and must have played 2 Become 1 like 10 times.

Dude, I know it’s a cheesy song but still so great. Anyone up for an MBB karaoke Bay Area meetup where we do a group rendition on stage??

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

  4. I love the shade of this nail polish, pretty cool. Ahh, Spice Girls, I loved how different they all were.
    Speaking of music, I liked this mix, maybe you will do, too. I have Lana Del Rey’s Summertine Sadness stuck in my head…

    Loving that ysl! And that song brings back some memories. I was 19 then and wore Mac’s spice lip liner with frou lipstick like it was going out of style! Thanks for the blast from the past! You always make me smile.

  8. Kim says:

    I’m not sure if everything today is supposed to remind me of a seaside vacation or if it’s just my brain playing tricks on me but, in any case, the blues and greens are both beautiful and making me think of the beach. πŸ™‚

    I happen to be wearing this color right now. I love it. The bottle looks particularly lovely on my vanity.
