About that polish:you're going to love it when you try Sula Paint & Peel Polish ($9).
It was actually created by accident. Perfumer Susanne Langmuir(fragrance aficionados, you may be familiar with her perfume line) formulated it while trying to come up with a polish free of those smelly and hazardous chemicals. Upon removing the offending ingredients, the remaining concoction was a peel-off polish.
Figuring "what-the-heck?," she launched it in four shades last summer. They sold out immediately. Luckily, she's announced that new on-trend shades will be rolled out twice yearly to keep up with the demand. I'm all about "Azure," a creamy blue-green hue that is an accessory in and of itself.
What I love about this polish (besides its ample brush) is that you don't have to make an event out of applying it. Simply slap it on your nails while on the phone or watching TV, no on standby liquid polish remover and emergency stockpile of cotton balls and Q-tips necessary.
If you mess up? Just peel off and redo. (Make sure to let dry for 30 minutes, the time it takes to fully set.)

While we’re all thinking about the brilliance of Pucci under the design direction of Peter Dundas (whose debut collection was presented at the fall 2009 Milan shows), Yoox.com is focusing on what made Pucci so fabulous in the past. Starting June 4, the Web site will be selling a curated selection of normally hard-to-come-by vintage Pucci, all dating prior to 1992, the year of founder Emilio Pucci’s death. The highlight? Pretty much everything, though the bags and scarves have closet constants written all over them.

For the Fall/Winter campaign, Johansson will be following the footsteps of Penelope Cruz (her "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" co-star). Cruz has fronted the brand for the past four seasons and designed a limited-edition collection MNG by MANGO with her sister Monica.
MANGO calls Scarlett the perfect face for its brand, describing her as "embodying the ideal MANGO woman; chic, independent, and cosmopolitan. Johansson exudes a confident demeanor while remaining youthful and playful."
As if that weren't enough, now we have the secrets to achieving that sexy, easy glamour Diaz exudes in the pics from the makeup artist (and one of Diaz's BFFs) herself,Gucci Westman.
And while it's so humble and down-to-earth for Cameron Diaz to say she doesn't think of herself as a sex symbol, we're pretty sure anyone who looks at the cover and inside images would beg to differ. She looks stunning!

I love fold over bags. This may sound silly and ridiculous, but I like how easy it is to fold over the flap and its closed - no zippers or snaps, just an easy movement of my arm and it's closed. It sounds extremely lazy but I often find myself, and see other women, in such a rush that they forget to fasten or zip up their handbag. And nobody wants to get home and suddenly realize that their phone or wallet has been stolen. So to find a bag that caters to my laziness and constant search of awesome bags is a bonus. The Pricilla Bag by Cort Moltedo features double braided leather uniquely placed along the top of the bag with tassels on either end. The interior is lined with decorative satin, a zippered pocket and a removable mirror.price $948

The Satin Evening Mindanao-Print Bag by Emilio Pucci is a pretty thing with a surprise snap compartment on the bottom that has just enough room to stash a few beauty essentials and includes a vanity mirror. The main compartment is a round satchel with a drawstring closure via double straps in matching silk-print fabric and a silk lining.
I really like it except the mirror on the bottom concerns me -- it's attached to the bag and you have to tip the bag to use it. Won't that spill the contents all over the place? $1,495
