Get to know| China Machado

Legendary model China Machado has still got it! Check out how absolutely gorgeous she looks re-creating her famous photo from the 1960s.

The Portuguese/Chinese mixed model had a stint as a Pan Am stewardess, ran away from home at 19 with a famous bullfighter, and was the first non-Caucasian model to appear in a major American publication. I'm kind of obsessed with her!

She will be a part of in the new documentary "About Face" debuting at Sundance film festival.

Style Spotlight| Blake Lively

Blake Lively has quickly become the epitome of the "American Dream Girl". She is best friends with some of the worlds top designers and has first pick at haute couture pieces we could only dream of. For being very young and choosing to go sans-stylist this girl definitely has her own eye for style. 
Check out some of her best fashion moments above from red-carpet ready to casual trolling the streets of Boston.

Budget Beauty| Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color

Tried & Tested

I have to say, this affordable nail polish is comparable to other much more pricy polishes. It retails between $4-6 depending on retailer and color. 
The wider brush makes application much easier for even the inexperienced self-manicurist. With this polish all you need is one coat on dry nails, no base coat needed (don't forget to glide the brush lightly over the tips of your nails for longer wear time). As promised, the polish did dry in 60 seconds when i tried it. After drying apply a top coat for extra shine and strength. 
Clean up around edges by dipping a Q-Tip into polish remover. 
I used colors mint-sprint and blue streak.
