Beauty Savvy, product junkies entered product heaven at Glamazondiaries.com’s Summer Picks Product Review and cocktail social this past month. The attendees of the social got a first look at Glamazon’s top picks of summer beauty trends in the Alma G Salon and Spa on East 21st street. The air in the room was buzzing with excited social goers waiting to see what top products would be featured this summer.

Essie featured their 2011 Bridal Collection entitled “Borrowed and Blue”. Though most people associate white with weddings, this line gives the bride to be a pop of color to the traditional white. The polish colors are named after traditional parts and people of weddings including made of honor, a nude polish with a touch of pink, first dance, a bold red, and the title blue polish borrowed and blue.
