NAILS—So much for nail polish being a fad. Even Oscar de la Renta is getting into the game. He will launch a line of polishes in October, and three of the colors appeared in his show yesterday. From left to right they're Red Carnation, Aubergine, and Larimar. [Birchbox]
SKIN—Today from 2:00-2:30 PM EST, Neutrogena and beauty blogger Amber Katz are hosting a "Twitter party" where you can ask all the questions you want related to skin care and face issues. Though sadly this party doesn't serve cupcakes, but you might finally figure out how to cope with that zit. Use the hashtag #neutrogenaflawlessface. [Racked Inbox]
