ISSE 2013: Nails (Azature, China Glaze, OPI, Orly, and More!)

All of the nail inspiration was probably my favorite part about ISSE. I loved checking out all of the spring collections and learning about products I haven’t heard of before! I’m a huge nailĀ  junkie (who isn’t?)…so I was in hog heaven. Have fun browsing my photos, and click on them to make them larger! Click here to see my haul!

I just had to share all of AZATURE‘s diamond nail polishes, including the 6 new colors that have just been released. Their original $250,000 nail polish was there, being protected by a guard! Kelly Osbourne and Jennifer Lopez have worn this nail polish before, and you can get the 1-carat version for only $25.

I’m definitely most excited for ORLY‘s collection for spring, called Hope & Freedom Fest. I can’t wait to share more from this collection, as I got the mini set to test them out! I love the name “Coachella Dweller” and think that these are so fun for spring…and loving the promo image. I want flowers in my hair! FYI the mini sets include Elation Generation, High On Hope, Melodious Utopia, and Coachella Dweller.

Nail art is so fun to me. I loved browsing all of the fun glitters and other things that can be put on the nail such as gold/silver foil, velvet powder, etc.

Who doesn’t love China Glaze? Their nail polishes are affordable but work amazingly. They were on a super sale at the show (6 for $15), so I couldn’t resist picking up a few…including some from the Hunger Games collection!

I also got Rare & Radiant from the Bohemian collection, because it’s a dupe of Chanel’s Peridot…which I regret never getting because Peridot is my birthstone!

I’m a big fan of CND’s Shellac after getting it a few times in the past. Their spring 2013 collection is called “Sweet Dreams” and features adorable pastel shades with a twist. I love the cake pop photo! One of the shades is even named Cake Pop! These were a hit and all of the colors except for the green, Limeade, were sold out by Sunday!

There were gel polishes galore for the manicurists to purchase. I loved all of the shiny bright shades!

Jessica Nails had a fun booth with a holographic floor. I learned about their new system that is a self-curing gel which will cut time for a lot of professionals. Their nail polishes are gorgeous…hope to try them one day!

Other brands you might recognize: Essie, Seche, and OPI were all there as well! I got a pamphlet for OPI’s spring Euro Centrale collection that I will do a new post on soon. I was bummed they weren’t showing it!

Something I thought was fun were these Q-Tickles cuticle oils that had tons of different scents and had little flowers in them.

That’s all that I could possibly capture at ISSE regarding nails…it was such a huge area I couldn’t possibly cover every booth! Stay tuned for my hair, skincare & makeup posts to follow in the next two days!

    Yeah, China Glaze really is good quality for the price. I have a few China Glaze, I find that they apply smoothly. I'll have to check out some of their collections next time I'm at Sallys Beauty.

      Agreed! Definitely…let me know what you pick up! My favorite is Re-fresh mint. I have half a bottle left…so it's definitely my most used polish!
