@BariBeauty #PureIce Vinyl Remix

On Thursday I attended the Pretty Nails Rock Pure Ice polish launch. Beauty Bar was the venue–a funky dive bar that serves up cocktails and manicures in Manhattan’s East Village.

Pure Ice Vinyl Remix is the new nail polish line by Bari Cosmetics, known for their inexpensive, high-quality polishes. Vinyl Remix is the next generation of Crackle nail enamels.

The “remix” is that the color is revealed after it dries. First, you apply the Platinum Magic Base Coat, then you use one of the Vinyl Remix enamels on top. When the polish dries, the white base is transformed into a mystery color, with the black Crackle design on top.

I got my mani in Glam Rock, a cool pink.

Check me out!

Other colors include Rave (orange), Emcee Me (yellow), DJ Spinner (green), Rock Star (blue) and Vintage Remix (purple). Mix them and paint designs to create a unique look.

The entire collection of free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP and contains Bari Cosmetics’ patented salon long-wear formula.

For just $6.49 a pop, you get the Platinum Magic Base Coat and Vinyl Remix Crackle enamel, along with a free nails file and song download!

You can get these polishes for yourself at any Walmart starting next month!

The entire NYC HeyDoYou crew: Yvonne, Fatema, and me!

We nibbled on delicious hors d’oeuvres, desserts (like the yummy cake pop that I LOVED), and drank lemon drop martinis. My type of party!

This is the event planner responsible for the sweet treats and hors d’oeuvres.

Video: Day Five @WMCFashionWeek

Friday was the last day of World MasterCard Fashion Week, and as much as I enjoyed myself, I was more than happy that it was over. I loved Travis Taddeo’s show, and pretty much drooled over the entire collection! I’m sad that I missed the Dare To Wear Love show, but I was so exhausted that I threw the towel in and went home early…. I heard it was awesome though! I enjoyed fashion week this season, however, there was definitely something that was lacking… I don’t know what but it definitely wasn’t as exciting or as fun as previous seasons.

Although I didn’t catch the Dare To Wear Love show, I managed to catch all the other shows, and have included a video for your viewing pleasure.

Until next season!

peace and love
