Bright Blue Polish

Amped to try some of this spring’s nail art trends? Get started with Sally Hansen’s nail art pen. This fine-tipped pen is as easy to use as a marker and opaque enough to only require a single coat. Play it safe with some easy yet colorful French tips, or go crazy with stripes, shapes, and patterns! Seriously, despite never having been artistically-inclined, even we found it just that easy to use. Now, which colors to stock up on… [$7.49, ULTA]

Behold, A Birthday Party In A Bottle

Deborah Lippman nail polish doesn’t mess around. It’s not simply shimmery or sparkly, it’s packed full of actual glitter. This particular style, called “Happy Birthday,” contains a rainbow of reflective confetti, and can be layered over other colors to create different looks. Who cares if my actual birthday isn’t until May? I think I’m getting an early present for myself this year. [$18, Nordstrom]

Get Nailed With Simcha: Straight Off The New York Fashion Week Runways

To my Frisky peeps, I’m Simcha. But did you know I have a nail art alter ego? Yep, you can also call me Miss Pop. For the past couple of years, I’ve been doing up my digits, my grandma’s nails, and literally anyone’s hands I could get ahold of. And now this polish obsession has spiraled into a profession. In fact, I was just backstage at New York Fashion Week painting nails. It was so funsies that I wanted to share with you some of my fave hawt new nail looks as modeled by The Frisky staff. Check ‘em out!

A Top Notch Top Coat

Having a manicure is kind of “my thing.” I very rarely have bare, unpolished nails for longer than a day or two, and my bathroom cabinet is stocked with polish colors I love. Unfortunately, “my thing” can be a bit of a pricey luxury, as getting a manicure once a week adds up! Recently, however, I’ve started doing my own nails and have been going to the nail salon less — and thanks to Revlon’s Liquid Quick Dry, I don’t have to spent 20 minutes trying to dry my handiwork (pun intended!) under the blowdryer. I am not overstating when I say this top coat protects against chipping almost instantly. I am not entirely sure how it works, but it’s more liquid-y than most topcoats and contains mineral oil that’s good for moisturizing the nail beds. I have been let down by many a top coat before, but this one, I swear to you, is an impatient gal’s best friend. [$5.75, Drugstore.com]

I noted in my Best Dressed slideshow that Adele look flawless at last night’s Grammy Awards, but seriously, even her nails were perfect! The singer had her long nails painted a glimmer-y silver, with the undersides a deep red, just like a pair of Christian Louboutin heels. Awesome! [Styleite]

Would You Wear … Translucent Nails?

Okay, so I’ll admit, I’m not totally sold on these translucent nails, which are being touted in a lot of the Spring 2012 ads. Mostly because they look an awful lot like the fake nails you can buy at the CVS. I mean, I’m not against fake nails at the CVS — lord knows I’ve bought enough of them. Howevs, this just kind of seems like you’re asking for them to get dirty. Really, really dirty. And unless you have a non-finger-involved job, or can afford fork holders,  you’re going to be washing your hands an awful lot. I say no, but what about you? Would you wear ‘em? [Madamenoire]
