  1. MUG SHOT: Jay Jays Mwah! Neon Green and Thursdays with Nel

    April 29, 2011 by pam

    It’s perfect that I’m writing this post on a Thursday – because that’s when we close our newspaper pages with Nel.

    Nel is our super awesome super efficient editorial production assistant – and she’s more than that. At work, she is the keeper of our sanity. I swear, we feel lost when she’s not there.

    She wasn’t there a few Thursdays ago because she had to fly to Brisbane for an assignment. We missed her and were glad to see her back the following week.

    She returned from Australia with goodies for us. She gave me this crazy neon green polish from Jay Jays’ Mwah! cosmetics line.


    And when I say it’s crazy neon, I’m not kidding.


    This neon jelly was a little sheer but I didn’t mind having to use several coats because the formula was easy to use.


    It was nice and smooth.


    This was three coats.


    It’s so bright it almost glows.


    I’ve been daring myself to try a neon green pedicure and this might just be the perfect polish to use.

    Stef said the polish reminds her of Slimer from Ghostbusters. Which I thought was cool because I like Slimer.


    I like Slimer but I love Nel. She rocks – just like this polish does.


  2. POLICE FILES: Polish Police in Cosmopolitan’s April 2011 issue

    We interrupt the boat stories and Justin Bieber obsession with another dose of shameless self-promotion.

    But in reality, I would tell you to check out this feature even if I wasn’t in it because it is all kinds of awesome.

    Check out this month’s issue of Cosmopolitan.


    Flip through the pages and resist the urge to stop so you can check out the summer studs and play the naughty “Have You Ever?” game. You can do that later.

    Go straight to page 182 and check out this gorgeous summer nails spread.


    Preview’s Editor-At-Large Agoo Bengzon and Cosmopolitan’s Assistant Beauty Editor Regina Belmonte did a beautiful job on this feature. There are other pages in the spread but I refuse to post more pictures because I want you to go and grab a copy of the magazine. You have to, if you want to find out what those pretty summer shades are and if you want to arm yourself with trend reports and nail care tips (and okay, play the naughty game and check out the summer studs).

    Cosmopolitan is available at magazine stands and bookstores nationwide.
