We can remember when Orly Nail Lacquer hit shelves. There was a buzz surrounding the patented rubber caps which made struggling to open a polish bottle a thing of the past and now, meet Orly 2.0. The company is re-branding, and the new bottles are set to take on a more modern, clean aesthetic. WWD reports the signature 'O' is to be replaced with just Orly in capital letters. Founder Jeff Pink also said the grey cap didn't complement the nail polish colours, so their rubber cap will now be black. What do you think of Orly's new look?
Usually wearing more than one beauty trend at a time can cause a clash, but Emmy Rossum proved that the key is choosing the right combination. She matched emerald smoky eyes and nude lips with an easy braid and white nails at yesterday's The 20/20 Experience album release party.
By incorporating Pantone's Colour Of the Year, Emmy's green shadow is spot-on for 2013. To re-create the look, apply Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Green ($9.95) in the lower waterline and on the upper lids. Then top with a golden shadow in the inner corners and on the center of lids. Emmy balanced the bold shadow with a glossy nude lip — yet another trend right now. Her effortless french braid is similar to styles seen on the Honor and Marchesa Spring 2013 catwalks. Finally, for nails, swipe on a few coats of Orly Nail Lacquer in Dayglow ($18.95) for a bold white manicure that has been spotted as a celebrity favourite. Which trends will you be mixing and matching in the coming months?
It seems March is a very popular month amongst the beauty pack. It nearly broke our hearts narrowing down the top 10, must-have beauty products, so we decided to go to 15!

Call it whatever you like — taupe, greige, mushroom — but we've been big fans of this wear-with-anything shade for some time now. In fact when we wear it, it is the nail polish colour we get the most comments on. A bit more on the brown side of the colour spectrum rather than grey, greige can and will match anything you decide to wear and won't confuse your overall beauty look. It was a big hit on the red carpet recently, with celebrities including Marion Cotillard and Debra Messing rocking the non-committal hue. Click through to see 10 of our favourites.

Navy blue is having a moment. Every second Autumn/Winter '13 showing I attend has a sea of the classic hue (cue internal fist pump). Bella too has been bitten by the navy blue bug — expounding the appeal of an inky smoky eye, just this morning. We're far too impatient to wait until the weather turns cold to try out the trend, so we went through our Icon Kit files to find something a little more seasonally relevant. May we introduce ... Poppy Delevingne, wearing Louis Vuitton at the label's S/S '12 Paris fashion week show way back in October of last year. Still so good.
