You know, people kind of look at me like I’m, like, crazy or something when I wear my RYGOS ring, but I could show my devotion to my one true love in more extreme ways. Like Beyonce, who posted this photo to her Tumblr this weekend. Her manicure features photos of her and hubby Jay-Z, a J on one nail, a Z on the other, and the Roman numeral IV on her pinky, which is both a reference to her most recent album and daughter Blue Ivy (IV, get it?). So, you know, I pale in comparison or whatever. [I Am Beyonce]
UPDATE: J/K! Apparently, these are not Beyonce’s nails. They are a fan’s nails that Beyonce loved so much that she posted them to her Tumblr. Anyways… [Dlisted]
One of the best things about being online editors is that we get to spend hours perusing the web for inspiration (even though this may not be best for our eyesight or posture). Nonetheless, there are tons of budding makeup, hair and skincare ”experts” sharing their straightforward reviews and in-your-face tutorials. Impressed by their serious skills and online superstardom, we’ve decided to round up the best beauty blogs.
This week, we’re kicking things off with the crème de la crème in DIY nail art. From Miss Ladyfinger (who can transform any runway design to her digits) to London’s WAH Nails (famous for their mani mash-ups), you’ll get motivated to switch up your average manicure.

Now and again, you want something a little special for your nails; a boring regular manicure just won’t do. Which is why we recommend you try Ciate’s new Velvet Manicure, a special treatment for your nails that leaves them feeling velvety soft. The manicure comes complete with a soft, powdery substance that you’re supposed to coat your nails in as they dry. The result is a manicure that’s almost fuzzy. It takes a moment to get used to, but after a day or two, we were totally sold on the effect. Give it a try and see how velvet soft your nails can feel, too. [$19, Sephora]
Ex-boyfriend going extra cray? Roommate riding your nerves like a pony? Boss man keeping you down? Ward off the haters with evil eyes! For my gurl Dana here, I added an acid wash denim design and nail art bullion studs so she would look like a force to be reckoned with. Just talk to the hand, and it says, “Bitch, please!”
To do up this look on your digits, check out my tutorial at BeautyHigh.
“Zooey Deschanel and I have been e-mailing all morning, like, ‘Can you believe the women that we are getting mentioned in the same breath as?’ Also, we’re planning our Emmy nails … She’s got a lot of nail style. I mean, I have a couple ideas, too … I want to shock the world with what I do, and/or be stopped from painting my nails a very strange color by my very smart and crafty publicist.”
— If you were wondering how Lena Dunham reacted to the news of her four Emmy nominations, well, now you know: she immediately began plotting her nail art debut. With help from her friend Zooey Deschanel, of course. As you do. [Fashionista via Vulture]
