Minx Nails pretty much cornered the market on metallic nails the minute it burst onto the scene because no polish could compete with its high-shine foil-like quality. But now Dashing Diva, another nail care company, is trying to get a bigger piece of the metallic nail action. For the Cushnie et Ochs fall 2010 fashion… READ MORE »

Minx Nails became a favorite among celebrities and fashionistas for its bold patterns and metallic colors. But now, they’re offering a new line of nail coverings that are great for everyday wear. The Teaser line still has the playful metallic undertones Minx is known for, but also an iridescence that is more subtle. READ MORE »

We’ve featured a lot of weird manicures here, but these pinking shears nails really take the cake. I’m not sure who created this, er, look, or how they did it, but I can’t say that I would sport it. While the nail appears to have been trimmed with pinking shears, it’s more likely that each… READ MORE »

What is it with bloggers and their year-long challenges? Twelve months to thin, cook all of Julia Child’s recipes, wear the same dress everyday, survive 365 days in Paris. (That last chick is a real nutbag). The latest in blog projects, The Daily Nail, chronicles one woman’s attempt to paint her nails a different way… READ MORE »

Humidity makes your hair look like ass, but British researchers have discovered Mother Nature’s awful mugginess is actually optimal for growing nails that don’t split! Air with 55 percent humidity keeps our nails pliable; unfortunately, excessive amounts of hot water from bathing or hand-washing soften nails too much. A researcher at Manchester University advised, “It’s… READ MORE »

Everyone has been talking about Minx Nails lately. The nail art was featured in a recent issue of Vogue and on “Today” this morning, but I have to say these “news” outlets are a little behind. The Frisky gave you the dish on Minx back in October, and even interviewed manicurist, Lisa Logan, who was… READ MORE »

I remember the days when manicures were fun. More often now, it seems like a burden and an expense when I look at my hands and go, Ugh, I need a manicure so bad. So, when browsing the drug store the other day, I was tempted by this package of nail gems by Fing’rs (creepiest… READ MORE »

Girls are taking on beauty rituals at a younger and younger ages. I had my first manicure when I was in the fifth or sixth grade as a reward for doing well in school, but I didn’t experience a salon pedicure until the day before my high school senior prom. Mani/pedis, however, are tame compared… READ MORE »

One of the beauty trends at New York Fashion Week was the reverse French manicure, where the moon, rather than the tip, is a different color from the rest of the nail. You might not remember this unless you’re a Batman nerd like me, but Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) had nails like this in “Batman… READ MORE »

We love getting weekly manicures (especially at places that give mini neck massages while your nails are drying), but it’s kind of painful to fork over $15-ish dollars each week — that’s $780 a year! Which is why we’re newly obsessed with Creative Nail Design’s Stickey Base Coat. We tested it for about two months… READ MORE »

Each day we get more and more news about how sucky our economy is, so we’re all trying to hold on to more money. But that doesn’t mean you should forgo your beauty routine all together. Instead, you can just spend less and DIY. To help you stay fabulous on a budget, you’ll find below… READ MORE »

We’re not sure if we actually do crave this, because it’s something we need to try. We are HORRIBLE at painting our own nails, which is why we go see Susan down the street from our office every few weeks. But it would be nice to save some bucks and be able to give ourselves… READ MORE »
