This collection doubles as their Brights 2016 collection. I'm coming at you today with some nail art that I hope will make up for the lack of full swatches of all 8 core shades.

5 Reasons You Should Eat Kind This October (And Forever)

by Bridie @ nzgirl

In partnership with SAFE’s Eat Kind month in October Bridie Chetwin-Kelly our resident vegan talks us through the reasons why eating kind is awesome. More often than not people tend to think that being vegetarian or vegan is about eating tofu and kale and calling it a day. That’s not all you’re doing. Eating kind is about saving the environment, animals, your health and eating like you give a damn. 5 Reasons Why Eating Kind is Awesome  The health benefits People who eat kind are actually on to something when it comes to health. With the right diet and understanding what vital nutrients your body needs to survive, you could be the ideal picture of health. By removing animal products from diets, you are reducing your risk of having heart disease and cancer As for dairy, the lactose in milk can cause some serious discomfort and leafy greens, broccoli and beans are far better sources to get calcium. Save the planet, one plate at a time The numbers are in and a number of resources used to farm agriculture is completely destroying the planet. In the time it takes you to read this 4 football fields of a forest is being cleared for farming. Our clean green image in New Zealand is at risk of animal effluent making our water toxic and contaminated. Not to mention what effects farming releases large amounts of emissions and has a significant impact on climate change. You could save a life or a hundred Would you still be able to eat meat if slaughterhouses had windows? By going meat-free you could save over 96 animals a year or up to 198 animals a year if you go vegan.. Normalising eating cruelty-free is what Eat Kind is about and by removing the questions around it we can begin to accept it as a new normal. What’s the difference between a dog and a cow? It’s just plain pretty to eat plant-based Just look up vegan on Instagram and you will see just how beautiful the food looks. New Zealand has come a really long way with being vegetarian and vegan-friendly as well. If you are at a loss or think it’s going to be difficult to go out and eat, you couldn’t be more wrong. Thanks to Happycow.net you can look up your area and go to tried and tested restaurants and cafes. I can hand on heart say that I have been to countless vegan-friendly places across the entirety of New Zealand. Portershed in Christchurch, Botanist in Wellington and The Burgerie in Auckland are only a couple of examples!  The Burgerie also now boasts the best vegan burger in the whole of New Zealand. Check out @Veganeaaats and @Accidentallyvegannz for even more unbelievable vegan food! My office buddies sure know how to throw a send off with a (tasty) bang 💘🎉 Gorgeous #vegan raspberry and coconut cake from @thecaker for my goodbye morning tea. Those flowers tho 😱👏🏻 A post shared by @accidentallyvegannz on Jul 20, 2017 at 1:29pm PDT Education around this has been made easy The education around this hot issue has never been easier and a number of documentaries out there are ever growing. I recommend, Earthlings for a sombre and heart-breaking look into what and how animals are used and abused. Be warned, it will break you… Cowspiracy has been deemed the shocking film that environmental organisations don’t want you to see. It’s about what is actually going to be sustainable for our planet. Lastly, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Before the Flood is about educating people on the topic of climate change with a big focus on agricultural farming and the pace in which humans consume meat. Bonus, you get to look at Leo for a full movie. SAFE is encouraging people to at the very least, give it a go for the month of October and has plenty of resources on their website to make the transition an easy one. Save the planet, save the animals and give compassionate eating a go. READ, WATCH, LISTEN

YOUR opinion.

by noreply@blogger.com (Laquerista) @ the Lacquerista

Dear Lacqueristas,


Let's face it, there's only so many  Scrangies, Polishaddicts and Chloe's in this world. There's tons of other nail blogs that I love and frequent, and there's a million of others that are pretty good as well. But it's getting more and more the same and my blog is stuck in that too. The same press releases, the same collections beeing reviewed, the same you know. Ofcourse it's helpfull to see many different swatches of one particular collection when your making up your mind what to get and yeah I appreciate the reviews on formula etc. But it doesn't happen a lot that I stumble onto a blog that makes me think, wow now this is really really cool!

I'm beeing honest, when I started blogging poor naive me somehow dared to have the ambition to grow this blog into something *unique*. Looking back at that ambition I can only smile and shrug. It's just impossible to stand out amongst all these great blogs! During my three month blogging break I realized I do not just miss posting, but I want to do more then just that. I also want to do something.... together! With you guys!

For a couple of months now I have a Nail polish Collection Database that a couple of GREAT girls from MUA maintain and that inspired me to investigate of some kind of community blog would be interesting. I'm not sure how it would look like but I have some ideas that might be fun.


I know there's some great swatchers out there that don't have time to start and maintain their own blog. Then this project would be for you.
Just some random thought on what topics the blog/website could cover;

  • All there swatchers with their unique skin tone would swatch the exact same polish for a particular post. It would be easy for readers to see how this particular polish would look on a skin tone similar to their own. 
  • Or to have bloggers with diverse interest and talent, maybe someone that is great at free handed nail art, another one would be a Franken-queen and we would also have a layering expert. 
  • Maybe we can have a blog that only reviews one particular brand. Or only swapping. Only high-end brands. Everything but pink. Whatever! 
  • To have a blog or website in a never seen before layout
  • To transfer the nail polish community database to a real website, and to build it as a proper database with all the polishes beeing swatched

You get the point. I think I'm just playing with the idea to *initiate* something fun in this nail polish blogging world. If you want to collaborate or share your ideas, that would be awesome. It's easy, just enter your thought in this form. Or post a comment.



 Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

Who wants to take over my blog?

by noreply@blogger.com (Laquerista) @ the Lacquerista

Dear Lacqueristas,

It has been ages since I last posted. One of the reasons is my pregnancy. I have Hyperemesis Gravidarum which means I feel sick for most of the time. There are a lot of smells that trigger my nausia and nail polish and remover is one of them. So I don't see myself posting in the next say... 25 weeks? Maybe I might just quit all together because it will be very busy, working full time and having a brand new baby. I put so much time, effort and money into this blog, it makes me so sad that it just faints and dies away because I don't post....
I would like for my blog to continue in my spirit :-) and who knows, I just might be back.

So, would you like to take over my blog, at least for a while? As a individual or as a group? And are you able to  post regularly? Are your polishing, clean-up and photo skills good? Then this might be the opportunity to run an existing blog and see how you like that, and make great friends along the way.

If you're interested in taking over, send me an email with your details and tell me something about yourself and why you would want this. I'd also like to see some pictures :-)

I was surprised to receive emails of some of you, to check up on me. Heart warming, thanks for that!

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

How to Care for a Pug

How to Care for a Pug

by @ How to of the Day

Pugs are a friendly and goofy dog breed that love attention almost as much as people love their folded-up faces. Those folds need special care, though, to keep your pug happy and healthy. Create a consistent routine of meals, play time, and quiet time for your pug, and make sure you provide them with regular fold cleanings, ear cleanings, nail trims, and baths. It can take a little extra work, but with some attention you can care for all of your pug’s unique needs.

#nzgirlhacks: Why You Need Life Insurance

by Damien Justus @ nzgirl

Saving money for your family means going over the expenses, your income, and every financial detail of your life with a fine-tooth comb. It’s not easy, and it’s probably going to cause you a little anxiety as you delve into places your money is going, how much you waste, and how much you need to save for the future. When you go over your expenses and decide it’s time to save money, don’t be like the thousands of people who assume they’re fine dropping their life insurance policies. It’s unwise, and financial experts advise against forgoing life insurance.   You Need Life Insurance You do need life insurance if you have a family. If something happens to you and your income is lost, can your family survive? If you are the primary breadwinner in the family, you must carry life insurance. Even if you don’t bring in any money for your family, you do provide a role. Do you have kids? If you stay home with them so your family doesn’t pay for school, daycare, after-school care, or babysitters while you work, you’re saving your family a lot of money every month. If something happened to you, who would care for your kids while your spouse is at work? Can your spouse afford to send your kids to school or daycare or camp while he or she works? You might not provide financial income to the family, but you do provide very important financial help to the family despite not receiving a paycheck every other week or so. Financial experts also remind consumers it’s not easy to get a good life insurance policy the older you good. If you decide to drop the policy you’ve carried for years, you’re never getting it back. The next one you get might be far more expensive, far less beneficial, and nothing like the one you have now. It’s easier to get good insurance for a good rate when you’re young and healthy. Are you still young and healthy? Think about that when you decide you’re saving money by ditching your life insurance policy. How to Save Money on Life Insurance If you really need to cut the bills in half or more, you need to consider a bundled policy. Get online or start making calls for car insurance quotes that also bundle your home and life insurance policies. Bundle discounts are available for those who choose to carry all their policies in the same place, and that’s a big saving each year. Additionally, if you make the decision to pay your premium upfront rather than monthly, you save a monthly fee as well as an automatic payment fee, and you get a discount for being a good customer. Talk to your insurance agent about the many ways you can save money on your insurance. Many of them are surprising, but that doesn’t mean they’re unwelcome. Savings are nice, and sometimes all you have to do is ask about it. You can compare insurance quotes until you find the policy that best fits your needs and your financial situation, and that’s how you save. You might find your current company is desperate to keep you, and they’ll offer more substantial discounts if they feel you might leave. Life insurance is the way your family survives when you are gone. It’s the kind of subject you never want to discuss, but it’s the kind of subject you must discuss. You can’t avoid this topic of conversation, and you certainly don’t want your family strapped financially and potentially change their entire lifestyle as they are dealing with losing you. Protect yourself and your family with a good life insurance policy. You need it, and your family needs it. It seems like a waste since you’re not really using it, but it’s one of the best investments you’ll ever make. Don’t cancel it no matter how badly you need to save money.   #nzgirlhacks

READ WATCH LISTEN: The Changeover Is The Perfect Coming-Of-Age Movie

by Lidya @ nzgirl

The best way I would describe The Changeover is a coming-of-age arthouse supernatural fantasy thriller-ish movie. A lot of words, but it is only because there are so many layers to the film. Sixteen year-old Laura Chant lives with her mother and four-year-old brother Jacko on the edge of earthquake-scarred Christchurch, New Zealand. Laura is drawn into a supernatural battle with an ancient spirit who attacks Jacko and slowly drains the life out of him. Laura discovers her true identity and the supernatural ability within her, and must harness it to save her brother's life. It captivated me straight from the start. The first scene (shown below) perfectly captured the awkwardness of wanting to be a carefree child but having the responsibilities of an adult. New Zealanders and co-producers Miranda Harcourt and Stuart McKenzie chose to set the movie in post-quake Christchurch. To me, post-quake Christchurch reflected what was going in in Laura’s world. She was trying to deal with the disaster of her father leaving and the responsibility of taking care of Jacko while trying to be a normal teenager. And of course, with teenagers, there has to be some sort of parental conflict. Melanie Lynskey plays Laura’s mum, an over-worked bookshop employee who often neglects her maternal duties. Tension between the mother-daughter duo reminded me of my arguments with my mother, with the similar lines of ‘Where were you? Who are you texting?’ and my old favourite line ‘You don’t listen to me’. Oh those angst years! Oh man. My goodness. I swear Timothy Spall just has a special talent for playing the creepy villain! There was the right amount of nail-biting and face covering and don’t do it don’t do it don’t do it. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! The person next to me told me after the movie that she knew exactly when the jumps were coming by the number of times I cursed under my breath (which is hilarious!). But the movie can’t be classified as a horror film. The person on the other side of me was a 13 year old girl and she was not scared. At all. To be honest, I’m not great with horror/thrillers, but I would not suggest bring children under age 13 with you. Now let’s talk about romance, because there is major chemistry between Laura and Sorenson. Sorenson gave me a very strong vibe that reminded me of Edward from Twilight. Kinda awkward, wanting to help, slightly dark with a good heart. Of course, the physical similarities help too! If you have read the Carnegie-medal classic by Margaret Mahy that the film is based on, don’t expect it to be exactly the same. While the book hasn’t aged and still has relevant themes to modern life, the producers wanted to really appeal to teenagers now.  The Changeover will make you laugh, will definitely make you cry. It is a must-see. Out in cinemas September 28th in a cinema near you.

SilkPeel Facial - The Next Generation in Microdermabrasion

by noreply@blogger.com (Jessica Jean Myers - Makeup Artist) @ Jessica Jean Myers

Recently I had the pleasure of experiencing a lovely procedure called a SilkPeel Facial at Dr. Cory Torgerson's office in Yorkville (Toronto).  I must say I cannot speak highly enough not only about Dr. Torgerson himself but his staff too!  Right away when you enter the office the receptionist offered me a coffee, tea or water and Vanessa the aesthetician performing the SilkPeel procedure was very friendly and informative about everything that was going on.

I'll give a little background about this procedure and exactly what it is.  SilkPeel Dermalinfusion by Clarion Medical Technologies is basically IMO the next generation in Microdermabrasion.  It's a non-evasive skin procedure that rejuvenates and exfoliates the skin leaving it glowing and refreshed afterwards.  You can totally do a treatment like this on your lunch hour and head back to work afterwards.  It's pain free - basically it feels like a cat running it's tongue over your face...and in a way kind of relaxing lol.  Like regular dermabrasion treatments a diamond tip wand is run over the skin helping to exfoliate damaged skin cells.

What's really awesome about the SilkPeel technology is the condition specific topical solutions that are also distributed onto and into the skin during the treatment.  With these specific solutions this procedure can help a multitude of skin concerns such as: acne, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, dull skin, dehydration etc.  It's completely non toxic, will not cause any sensitivity to sunlight and it's safe for all skin types!

There's 4 different solutions to choose from:

Clarifying Solution - For acne prone, blemished and oily skin.  It exfoliates, soothes and promotes cellular turn over.

Hydration Solution - For dry skin this solution hydrates, smoothes and gently exfoliates skin.

Vitamin C Solution - This detoxifying solution clarifies, hydrates, brightens and soothes the skin.

Lumixyl Solution - This solution is best for hyperpigmentation, discolouration and evening out skin tone

As anyone who reads this blog knows I suffer from acne (still as an adult ugh) so I of course chose the Clarifying Solution.  Immediately afterwards I noticed that my skin was very smooth and soft to the touch!  There was a bit of dryness for 1-2 days afterwards but nothing serious and all and I do find the overall appearance of my skin has improved w/ only 1 treatment...I can imagine the results would be even more impressive w/ multiple treatments.

SilkPeel can also be used in combination with laser and light based treatments for even greater results. There's also a SilkPeel Body system which can also help with cellulite, acne, sun spots, stretch marks, elasticity and rough or dry/dull skin!

During my treatment I made a little video for  you guys to see...as you can see during the treatment it does cause a bit of redness on the skin but that quickly subsides once the treatment is over with.
