Sneak Peek: The cover for the next V Magazine (issue #65) which hits newsstands Tuesday, May 11th, 2010: “The Summer Scorcher issue,” starring gorgeous actress Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett stars in Iron Man 2 which opens in theaters today, May 7th, 2010.

CND introduces Fall’s limited edition Colour & Effect: “Texture adds to the strength of the look – and autumn is all about dimensional manicures,” says CND Co-founder Jan Arnold. Nails take their cue from striking blue-greens, effervescent reds, and offbeat beige, camels and grays this season.
Steely Dan: Extravagant midnight manicures and tonal shades of heathered mushroom and gray nails complement this Fall’s masculine palette of mossy greens, black leather and textured fabrics. To achieve Ruffian’s (seen in image above) “Lunar Eclipse” manicure, pair deep blue Inkwell with Gold Chrome around the cuticle edge for a metropolitan look.
Nail Trends: French Nude Colony by CND: While the runways have been filled with prim clothing, nails are going nudist! Not bare-naked, but perfected flesh tones. Just as airbrushing makes skin appear flawless, these gorgeous Colours hide imperfections and make for an elongated, natural-looking nail. At Sonia Rykiel, CND used warm, opaque neutral Desert Suede for a creamy finish. At Giambattista Valli and Jasmine di Milo, CND used semi-sheer neutral Putty for gorgeous, chic manicures.
GET THE LOOK: Love Marion Cottilard hairdo at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards? Marion Cotillard’s dramatic Golden Globe hair look, created by master stylist Robert Vetica, complemented her elegant Dior gown with a subtle touch of rock and roll.
Manicurist Deborah Lippmann polished off some of Hollywood’s hottest looks at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Past Golden Globe winner Marion Cotillard wore Don’t Tell Mama. The young and modern shade was the perfect accent to her green Dior gown.
“I wanted a look that was glamorous, but with an edge,” said Vetica, “and was inspired by the rock and roll pompadours of the 50s, further strengthened with a sleek, modern French twist. Since shiny, healthy-looking hair was essential to the look, I first applied argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Treatment to wet hair, and blow dried it straight using a diffuser to keep a bit of natural texture. Then I pincurled the entire head front to back, so that hair would easily flow back and up into the pompadour shape. After releasing the pin curls, I ran Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream through the hair with my hands. After brushing back and up, I back combed the top, and pulled the sides back tight, leaving some volume on top. Next, I twisted the hair into a tight french twist which was then asymetrically attached with eye-catching diamond hair clips created by Chopard. I fishined the look with a light misting of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray to give Marion’s hair a beautiful, naturally luminous shine.”
Kate Hudson looked pretty and elegant in Marchesa at the 67th Golden Globes. Kate wore a strapless silk crepe gown with sculptured band bodice and bottom flared skirt.
Celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann polished off some of Hollywood’s hottest looks at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Kate Hudson wore a classic deep red called Lady Is A Tramp to offset her pure white Marchesa dress.

During my time in NYC for Fashion Week Spring 2010 last week I stopped by the fabulous CVS & Robert Verdi lounge. The lounge was full of the latest hot new products at CVS. One of them was Sally Hansen latest HD nail color collection which I was absolutely in love with. The manicurist at the lounge applied Sally Hansen HD Nail Polish in Opulent Cloud: a gorgeous silver, with golden and some purple undertones. This shade is very chic and modern and the icing on the cake: it didn’t chip for 4 days!! I call it: “The Nail Polish That Doesn’t Chip”. It’s currently available at CVS, so go check it out!!
