As avid readers of Sophy Robson’s blog, we caught wind of the London-based manicurist with the mostest’s collaboration with Sephora by OPI some time ago. But what exactly would it be and when, oh when, would it be available for our consumption? The news finally came yesterday, when the mega beauty emporium officially launched six nail art looks curated by Robson on its website. The concept is a clever one: Sephora by OPI has given Robson free reign of its extensive inventory to dream up designs that can be easily duplicated at home. How easily, you ask? If the step by step instructions for applying individual gemstones with tweezers and cutting precise shapes out of designer appliqués don’t clear things up for you, the how-to videos sure will. For a good weekend activity, take a gander at Robson’s recipe for “Wild Giraffe” nails below, and click here to marvel at her other strokes of genius.
Find the right size of Sephora by OPI Chic Prints for Nails in Giraffe for each nail, and use scissors to cut out crescent-shaped tips.
Draw half moons on the remainder of the Chic Prints for Nails, and cut out all ten.
Apply two coats of Sephora by OPI Nail Colour in Caught With My Khakis Down, and let dry.
Place the tips and moons on the tips and bases of your nails, respectively.
Seal with a coat of Sephora by OPI Nail Treatment – 3 in 1 Base, Top & Strengthener.

The Kardashians are in the spotlight again today—where else would they be?—with a new lawsuit accusing the sisters of breach of contract over the Kardashian Kard, which never came to be. The suit involves Revenue Resource Group, which is seeking damages in the amount of projected sales of the card and out-of-pocket expenses they claim to have paid to keep the sisters happy, including $7,000 for someone to do their hair and makeup at a launch party, which was negotiated down after Kim originally demanded $12,000. That better have been one hell of a blowout! [CNN]
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has narrowed down the list of possible Oscar contenders in the Best Hair and Makeup category, which now includes Alice in Wonderland, Barney’s Version, The Fighter, Jonah Hex, True Grit, The Way Back, and The Wolfman.

France’s main unemployment agency is trying to lure jobless women back into the workforce by offering them a taxpayer-funded day of pampering to give them their groove back. Makeup, hair, manicures—the works! President Obama, are you listening? [msnbc]
If having to seek out a Minx-approved nail salon near you to have a trained professional apply the popular overlays has deterred you from experimenting with fun cheetah-printed tips and the like, you’re in luck. The brand that made quality temporary nail art easy and accessible (well, fairly accessible) has arrived at Sephora in the form of eight limited-edition patterns that are part of a collaborative effort with Sephora by O.P.I. You simply warm the Chic Prints sheets in your hands, apply to fingers, trim, and file down for a quick summer mani. No, it’s not going to last all that long (cool as they are, Minx tend to chip off pretty quickly), but permanence is not the overall goal here; variety is. Chrome lace and nautical stripes in one week? We dare you.
