Given how much I “heart” Priti Soy Nail Polish Remover, I’m rather surprised that is has taken me this long to try Priti Nail Polish, a non-toxic, 3 Free nail polish developed to be safe for children and expectant moms.
As part of my very first Priti Nail Polish haul, I picked up an intriguing neutral shade called Sweet Sultan, described as a “matted gray rose” on the Priti website. Sweet Sultan by Priti NYC has since become one of my favorite nail polish shades ever, a really great work-to-play neutral polish. It’s even up there with my favorite Paul & Joe Beaute Nail Enamel in 05 Teacup.
Tons More Photos & Swatches of Priti Nail Polish in Sweet Sultan…

I recently attended a fun Benefit Cosmetics preview party in San Francisco, and I got to try out and take home new Fall makeup from Benefit. I even got my brows done during the event and loved it! Benefit sure throws a mean party – cupcakes, cocktails, and all!
Now, I’m actually kinda excited about these new Benefit Fall products, because they’re quite fun, and would probably work with a variety of skintones!
Here are the Fall launch details and photos… › Continue reading

Meilily Product Pick, Photos & Swatches! Paul & Joe Nail Enamel!
Ever since Meilily was introduced to the wide world of Paul & Joe Beaute, a Parisian cosmetics and skincare line created by Sophie Albou that is much loved throughout the globe, an intense Paul & Joe beauty addiction began to smolder. After receiving a Paul & Joe Beaute product from one of the ladies at eMakeMeUp.com, this addiction was set ablaze, and… hauling commenced immediately.
Paul & Joe Nail Enamel: Scented & So Feminine!
One of the most interesting products from Paul & Joe Beaute, and one of the products I first hauled, is actually the Paul & Joe Nail Enamel, not just because of its unique floral glass bottle but also because it is a scented nail polish! It applies just like any good nail polish, but then it also smells quite nice when dry – like soft fruity flowers – with no yucky chemical smell! Amazing!

Summer won’t be over for a while yet, so if you want to tighten up your swimsuit/short-skirt body, here’s a product for you!
Use it wherever you choose! The slighty minty cooling sensation makes it feel like something’s working, but isn’t strong enough to feel burning or distracting. Whewh!
I was surprised to see toning results after my first use, but I suppose it could have just been my imagination. Either way, I think this stuff works, so that’s pretty good for skeptical me! YMMV, of course, but I like using Bliss Love Handler for smoother tighter skin.
Don’t forget this savings code: Get 20% off fuzz fighting and body toning bestsellers at blissworld.com. Enter code HAIRY! Offer ends 8.9.09.
Or, better yet, you can browse the wide selection of fitness shoes at Blissworld.com, and pick out a pair of raved-about Swiss MBT shoes on sale for only $149… and get a Free full size Love Handler with your order! Get a FREE love handler with a $100 purchase at blissworld.com. Enter code FREELUV. Offer ends 8.9.09.
Meilily loves… Bliss Love Handler!
P.S. Meilily’s Product Tip: When you use Love Handler, you’ll probably want to wash your hands after applying it to your body so you don’t get any toning minty-ness in your eyes! Just a thought!
Meilily Sale Alert!
15% off at The Perfumed Court Anniversary Sale! Use Code TPCanniversary for the discount until July 13. (Find out more about Meilily Featured Shop, The Perfumed Court – Love their amazing selection of fragrance decants and minis!)

What do books and natural perfumes have in common? Well, not much, I thought, until I discovered that Borders Bookstores now carry products by Pacifica, a surf-inspired brand of natural fragrances, candles, and body care.
Pacifica has artfully placed their perfumes in the limelight recently, their products garnering a spot near the front of Borders bookstores (and in Sephora stores), no longer sitting meekly on the shelves of small locals-only grocery stores. Keep reading for more on Pacifica’s latest fragrance, Avalon Juniper.
