Break-ups are bad news, but they can also be a good excuse to give yourself a makeover, pamper yourself, and come out of the whole ordeal looking fabulous. And lately, I've noticed a number of cosmetics companies making break-up themed makeup to help you along.
So I bring you Part I of my Break-Up Makeup series, which today features a few kitschy nail lacquers to help you polish away your pain. (Thanks to Kiss and Makeup for the tip.) Now stop your whining and pamper yourself with a nice little mani/pedi.
The Essie Starting Over Collection ($7 per bottle) includes six pink and red shades with super-cute and highly appropriate names: E-nuff is E-nuff, Starter Wife, Wife Goes On, My Way, Pinking Up the Pieces, and Red-y-Set Ex.
For two more break-up inspired polish collections,
This Lippman Collection I Will Survive Ultimate Treatment Set ($24) is a trio of products that help restore weak, splitting, cracking, and thin nails. The kit includes a 2 Second Nail Primer, a Rehydrating Base Coat, and the super-glossy On A Clear Day Top Coat.
Orly Divorcee Collection ($19.14) is a group of six Spring colors with hysterically cynical names such as Pawn the Ring, It's Not Me It's You, See Yah, Take Him to the Cleaners, One Night Stand, and my personal favorite, 50/50.
