Hot! Hot! Hot!
Are you looking to add a bit of colour in your life? Well, New Brights by O.P.I, might be exactly what you are looking for!
This Spring/Summer, O.P.I pairs up with Paige Premium Denim to bring you six of their brightest new trend-setting shades for nails, which perfectly match the new hues of Paige’s Roxbury Ankle Skinny and Canyon Shorts.
“Brights continue to be spring and summer’s go-to trend in fashion and beauty, and Bright Pair delivers the season’s colour story at full volume,” says Executive VP & Artistic Director, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. “Pair up these shades your favourite way – mix, match, or coordinate fingertips, toes, and fashion. It’s all good, and it’s all bright!”
Bright Pair Nail Lacquers include:
- On the Same Paige - You’ll agree this orange-red is jean-ious!
- No Room for the Blues - This vivid blue is “denim”-ite!
- Shorts Story - Hot pink. The end.
- In My Back Pocket - A bright orange you won’t want to tuck away!
- A Grape Fit! - This rich purple was made for you.
- Over the Taupe - An outrageously appealing shade of “lush”-room.

How do I apply self-tanning products? And, which products are good? Thank you! (Sara from Switzerland)
Hi Sara, thanks for your email! As you know – applying self-tanners can be a disaster if not applied properly – so to avoid a streaky mess – make sure you exfoliate before you apply any self tanning product. Exfoliate all over, but concentrate on the areas that tend to be more dry, like your elbows, knees and wrists.
The self tanner I’m using right now – that I really like – is the Self Tanning Instant Gel and the Delicious Self Tanning Cream from Clarins. They both leave your skin with a beautiful natural looking tan!
A definite must-try!

Did You Know?
Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers. It is the 4th leading cause of cancer deaths for Canadian women. Each year, there are 2500 new cases diagnosed and 1500 related deaths. The 5 year survival rate is only 30%. Nearly all women die within 10 years of diagnosis. Since it is difficult to detect in its early stages, the survival rate has not changed appreciably in over 40 years. However, with early detection and effective treatments, it is possible to increase the survival rate to 90%. The difference is huge; yet attainable with sufficient resources for research.
Princess Margaret is one of the 5 leading cancer hospitals in North America and is at the forefront of research into early detection and treatment for ovarian cancer. With your support we can ensure that research into the causes, treatment and prevention of ovarian cancer will continue, make a difference and ultimately, save lives. (aWEARness 2009)
