Essie nail polish - winter 2008 - Damsel in a Dress
Damsel in a Dress is my favorite of the Winter 2008 collection. Purple shades are the “it” nail color of this winter. Damsel in a Dress is a deep plum shade with subtle silver shimmer. It’s one of those amazing colors that is deep, yet still purple indoors, and takes on brighter personality when in sunshine. I loved the application. My polish above is 3 coats with a top coat. If you pick up one of these Essie polishes this winter, this is my recommendation.

Essie nail polish - winter 2008 - Sexy Divide

Essie’s Sexy Divide is a brighter purple than Damsel in a Dress- making it another great purple option for this winter. It has self-colored shimmer (rather than the silver highlights of Damsel). Again, fantastic wear with this polish. I went three days with no chipping! I did experience some cuticle drag upon application of the first 2 coats, but it evened out after the 3rd.

Michael Kors is Very Pretty

Hmmm… maybe he’s not, but his new limited edition fragrance, Very Pretty, has ROCKED Bionic’s world.
Seriously folks, I’m not a luxury perfume lover normally. I have some favorite fragrances, but they are the ones you find in the drugstores (Curve’s Wave, Adidas’ Move, Bodycology’s Pick Me, yada yada).

The Bionic Beauty blog's favorite perfume - Michael Kors' limited edition fragrance, Very Pretty

My absolute favorite perfume!! Michael Kors' limited edition "Very Pretty"

I now leave this bottle out on my bedside table. It’s adorned with crystals, making it shine & twinkle at me. Scents notes include light citrus, coconut, white florals, and sandalwood. It’s sensual without being overwhelming or “too frou-frou”. The only drawback is the cost. It’s $75 for a bottle.

But I bucked up. I am so in love with this fragrance… even the Bionic Hubby gave it an overwhelming approval. Remember, if you want a bottle, pick it up quick, as it is a limited edition. Or just direct your guys to this article as a strong hint for your holiday wish list!

You can find Michael Kors Very Pretty at, your local Nordstroms (if you want a sniff), or
