Get Nailed With Miss Pop: “Girls” Knit Nails

I’m obsessed with “Girls” and of course, the euphonious line of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes inspired by them! Jessa, a color that can’t decide if it wants to be red or brown, or both. Marni, a polite pink that seems dainty but is actually quite strong. Shoshanna, a girlie lavender with a look-at-me streak of sparkle. And Hannah, a color unlike anything else out there. It’s a griege that desperately wants to be a neutral, but is too green to be anything but charmingly weird.

I wove the colors, like the character’s lives, into a nail art knit design for one of my fav real life New York girl, Marissa Stuart. Special thanks to her for hand modeling!

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: Chanukah Nails!

Thanksgiving Nails
This pumpkin pie-inspired nail art works year round. Read More »

It’s Chanukah Party time! And this year, I’m getting a copy of the new Laika Magazineout 12/12/12. I’m so excited to have this design in its first issue, especially because all of the products in Laika’s pages are Cruelty Free. Bonus!

The polishes I used here are from one of my favorite local NYC shops: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Their 100 percent vegan products are truly amazing. I’m a big fan of their lip tars and lacquers. To make this look festive, I used polish colors: Spanglemaker, Rx and Inky. But really any color combo with high contrast will work well.

After the jump, get the DIY to steal this look straight out of the pages of Laika Magazine!

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the pie. Pumpkin first, pecan is a close second. Even better, since Thanksgiving is a holiday about gluttony is that I can have both guilt-free! Now that’s something to be thankful for. So, I decided to also combine my two sweet loves on my nails. Floss Gloss “Tan Lines” is the perfect pumpkin color. Essie’s “Little Brown Dress” make up the brown slices. And I added some metallic patterning because hey, it’s a holiday party! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: Waiting For Lightning To Strike

It was a dark and stormy Monday night… Before Sandy took my electricity, cell reception, and internet connection, I painted my nails with this look. I was inspired by that quietly terrifying moment, right before the storm, when the sky feels like an ominous crystal ball.

My heart goes out to all the people who have lost what cannot be restored. For those of us who can return and rebuild, I wish you a speedy recovery. And a big thanks goes out to all the volunteers, medical staff, and government workers who have kept us going.

For this ombré pyramid and clouds look, I used Maybelline’s Audacious Asphalt and painted two coats on as the base color. Then, I made the ombré pyramid with Deborah Lippmann’s Stormy Weather and the metallic peak is Color Club’s What A Drag. Then, I swiped each side of my nail diagonally with Essie’s Licorice. For the clouds, I dabbed on Essie’s Chinchilly. The key to creating the ombré effect, as you might remember from this tutorial, is to apply the polish with a makeup sponge. For the clouds, I used the skinny side of the sponge, for the pyramid, I used the wide base.

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: DIY Halloween Nails In Black And White

Hands down Halloween is my fave holiday. Sure, I usually dress like a freak from another universe on any given day, but I like when I get to blend in on October 31st. I’ve already been heavily preparing my costume by eating my way through two bags of candy this week. This year, I’m going to fill out my costume with some extra booty— or as I’ve taken to calling it, flava boom. Although I can’t decide what to be: an Olympic synchronized swimmer or Dolly Parton, again.
