Ask ANYONE that has tried MoroccanOil, and they will tell you that they love it. We Glambo Girls are no exception.

Lately, argon oil is all the buzz, and they are adding it to everything. Just know, this is largely due to the success of the MoroccanOil line. It's not always easy to find unless you visit a salon because MoroccanOil is tight with it's distributorship. So, you won't see it in Sally Beauty Suppy, SuperDrug, Ulta or Sephora. But, if you can get a bottle to try, we guarantee that you will be hooked. 

Apply just a little bit through your freshly washed hair, and style as usual. You will notice a few things:

1) The Smell: MoroccanOil is fragrant, but we have yet to hear from anyone that doesn't find the scent appealing.

2) Your hair will look and feel great! It provides a sleek look free from frizz and fly-aways. It can be used on any hair type, and has amazing smoothing qualities for those with dry, coarse hair.

3) Blow-dry faster! We are not sure how this works, but when you use MoroccanOil, your drying time is nearly cut in half. Yet, your hair does not feel or look dry and brittle. 

We are fans of the entire line, but if you are able to try just one MoroccanOil product, this is the one to get. MoroccanOil Treatment also comes in a light version for those with thin or ultra-fine hair.

China Glaze The Hunger Games Capitol Colours Riveting, Dist. 3

Another long title / name for The Hunger Games nail polish collection from China Glaze. When we first heard the buzz about the Capitol Colours, we envisioned bright crazy shades based upon our knowledge of Capitol fashion from the books. (They paint themselves green and have surgery to look like a tiger for Pete's sake!) Then, China Glaze changed course and decided to focus on the colors of the Districts. Upon seeing the collection, we were slightly disappointed by the lack of loud shades. So, we were immediately drawn to the orange Riveting.

Maybe we were just in 'hater mode' that day, because my next out-loud thought was that the hue was similar to OPI's Animal-istic. I was immediately chastised by the girl in the beauty supply store, and rightfully so. This color has such a great shimmer to it. It's been swatched on pale skin, but we just know it would look even prettier with a tan. Grab a bottle of this color now because you will really want to use it more often come spring and summer. Look at this sparkle! Love it!

If you read our Hook and Line post, then you know that most of my nails snapped when we were getting our Hunger Games nail polish collection. Maybe that's why I wasn't my usual up-beat self. One thing is for certain though, you can't help but be happy when you see this shade of orange on your nails (even if they are shorter than you would prefer.) The color and sparkle are sure to make you smile. And, if you are creating 'Girl on Fire' nails, then this polish is an absolute must-have.

China Glaze Hunger Games Capitol Colours - Hook and Line, District 4

Well, that's a long title and description for a long awaited nail polish! Thousands of people are lining up this evening to see the midnight showing and release of The Hunger Games movie. We, here at Glambo, are wearing our Hunger Games nail polish, specifically Hook and Line, District 4 (fishing.) And, we dressed it up with a polish from District 1 (luxury) Luxe and Lush.

The Hunger Games, Hook and Line, District 1

Before you look at our nail pics, know this: Our swatches were hexed! Just before picking up our entire collection of The Hunger Games colours, my nails snapped and broke (so low that they bled. I know, gross, right?) So, please forgive the stubby nails. Of all the nail polishes that we have tried this year while blogging, it almost seems appropriate that this happened with The Hunger Games collection. It's an imperfect, sometimes violent world.

On to the polish:

Hook and Line might seem a little drab in the bottle, but once applied, the color grew on me. The application color matched the bottle on the first coat, but it was sheer. We normally apply two coats over a base, and with two coats the color was darker, greyer and slightly bluer. At first, I preferred the lighter shade, but once Hook and Line was topped with Luxe and Lush, District 1, it was even prettier.

We are reviewing Luxe and Lush, District 1 separately, but we can tell you that we really liked this polish too. It's sure to be a favorite out of the entire collection, and it sold out quickly in stores. We like that the iridescent flecks are all random, odd shapes, not perfectly round circles like other polishes. Again, it's appropriate for The Hunger Games.

For those that read The Hunger Games books, we hope you like the movie and get a chance to enjoy The Hunger Games Capitol Colours collection. We have more swatches coming soon, so stay tuned to Glambo.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Top o' the mornin' to ya! Ok, only one of us is part Irish, and it isn't the girl typing, so bear with me. ;) St. Patrick's Day is always fun here in the U.S. The iconic lore of the holiday always makes us think of a few simple things. Since we aren't indulging in green beer and corned beef & cabbage today, we'll keep this post limited to rainbows, that elusive pot of gold, and a cute little leprechaun.

When it comes to beauty, finding the right gold can be tricky. OPI's Gold Shatter nail polish is sure to delight everyone, regardless of coloring and skin tone. It has a pretty metallic shimmer, and the sparkle is really enhanced by a top coat. It separates well, and looks good over any color of nail lacquer.

The ultimate rainbow can be found with OPI's Rainbow Connection. This gorgeous polish was part of the Muppets Collection, and was limited edition. If you can find a bottle, make sure you capture it! This varnish is truly unique. It sold out quickly, and is still in high demand.

As for leprechauns, we are turning to Bella is a twelve year old food blogger cooking up all kinds of treats. She also is our tween Glambo Girl. She always look great, and we love her nails in this picture featuring her shamrock cookie.

We hope you have a fabulous St. Patty's Day! May the luck of the Irish be with you all year long.
XoXo, Glambo
