Apply a Coat of Karma

The way to this girls heart is simple: a bottle of beautiful nail polish. So, imagine my excitement when Thompson Alchemists decided to become a new home for the wildly popular Karma Organic nail polishes! I mean, lets forget for a second they’re organic and don’t have any icky stuff like toluene, formaldehyde and DBPs, look at these COLORS!


I've Got Good Karma!

From left to right we have: Sugar Coat Me, Pink Passion, Wrap me up in Red, Park Ave Purple, Monarch Masquerade, Magens Bay Blue, Midnight Passion, (Side Note: Yes, I’m aware that my thumb has a split personality, I couldn’t decide which color I preferred so I convinced myself that I can have it all and went for both. :-P), Darkest Desire, Matte Smoke, Silver Brocade, and Royal Fool’s Gold.

The line also comes with a pretty neat 2-in-1 polish that doubles as a base and top coat. A “Lavender RX” polish that serves as a cure for brittle nails, a nail strengthener and a cuticle remover. I was a bit dubious about the cuticle remover, but really all you have to do its dab some on your cuticles, let it sit for a minute and rub it off. All excess skin is gone! No longer are the days when I will have to sit and suffer through a manicure where someone is ripping off my skin with a torturesque instrument… Ah, the things us gals go through.

Last, but so not least, the Lavender Nail Polish Remover. This is by far the BEST nail polish remover I have EVER used. In comparison to your conventional acetone ridden Cutex that stinks to high heaven, I almost want to dab this stuff on my pulse points to wear as perfume. It smells awesome and it works. Plus, like the rest of the line — its organic.

P.S. My only regret: That I don’t have a third hand so that I could show off the rest of the colors we have. 😦 Oh, cruel world.

P.P.S. There is a totally cool GLOW IN THE DARK nail polish too. Perfect for raves and lightshows under the bed covers!

A Cleanser by Any Other Name

Gentle Pureness Micellar Foam Cleanser With 3 Roses

Winter in NYC can be so graceful with the slushy streets, the common cold, the gray sky, apartment steam heat, and dry skin. Not a very rosy picture and every lady could use a rose to make her feel special. Fortunately I had Nuxe’s Eau de Mousse Micellaire aux 3 Roses within my reach.

I found a new meaning to the phrase “wake up and smell the roses” NUXE’s soap-free foaming micellar cleanser left my skin soft, clean and moist. Immediately after dampening my skin the rosy aroma instantly enriched my morning. The presence of 3 soothing roses as well as being 81.9% natural without parabens or phenoxyethanol adds to its gentle purity.  Suitable for sensitive skin and perfect for removing makeup, it allows you to end your day with same grace it began.

SUMMER beauty: How is your BACK view?


Now available at Thompson Alchemists in Soho NYC is a classic available in four fragrances…D’Orsay captures the playful essence of human nature.

Each fragrance posses an eternal depth and passion. Enjoy the chivalrous elegance off Chevalier d’Orsay eau de toilet that is synonymous with know-how and old world tradition. The essence of “Tilleul” (LindenBlossom) relaxes and moisturizes the skin giving it back it’s softness in a grand and voluptuous way. Natural, sparkling floral aromatic notes with hint of woody freshness to help you bring in the night with freshness and sensual essence.

Le Nomade brings out the wondering spirit in our souls by allowing us to connect with the road warrior, the nomadic tribesman, gathering and collecting the essence of his travels in his soul. Le Intrigante has a dangerously bewitching quality that forces us to ask who dares question the temptress’ ambitions when she pursues her charms and ambitious seduction.

Now that’s enough intrigue & scandal to make a small town stay home

… but this ain’t no small town.

Le Dandy D'Orsay
