Beauty Buzz: Kim Kardashian Is Black in Black, Deborah Lippmann Says Skip the Soak, and Coola’s Set It and Forget It Spray


Bye, bye, blondie! Kim Kardashian has returned to her roots as she was spotted leaving a L.A. salon with little North in tow, of course. This comes on the heels of the release of her Elle France cover and spread with Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing with her lighter locks still in tact. We can only guess that the damage and major maintenance was too much to take (as it would for anybody), spaghetti strands anyone? [The Daily Mail]

Soaking our fingers in warm water is synonymous with a trip to the nail salon, but the added hydration may mess up your mani. According to Deborah Lippmann, the nail absorbs the water and expands, leading to an uneven application if the nail isn’t completely dry. As the mani master put it, “If you soaked your nails, you would need to wait until the nail plate is completely dry in order for it to constrict to its typical size—which no one really does—at which point it would be ready for polish application.” So don’t be afraid to speak up!

Coola has a busy summer ahead! Aside from the brand’s collaboration with Tommy Bahama, it’s slated to move into makeup with a setting spray that will hit shelves in April. The formula combines aloe vera and cucumber to soothe, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and, of course, and an SPF of 30 to keep skin protected. With summer on it’s way makeup mavens will sure to snap this up to keep their look on lock. [WWD]

It seems everyone’s going green lately, as The Body Shop is introducing its new Fuji Green Tea collection that will hit shelves April 7.
