No, not those vamps. I’m talking about the sexpot bombshells who know there’s nothing like dark, glittery nails to captivate and entice a smitten man. Butter LONDON’s Black Knight nail polish — a black polish with tinged with purple, blue and silver flecks of glitter — is the perfect weapon to sting your prey. A $14 a pop, it ain’t cheap. But I reckon you’ll have the prettiest talons around well into 2015! [$14, ButterLondon.com]

It seems like no corner of the beauty industry will be left unturned when it comes to finding ways to market to men. The newest beauty trend for guys? The MANicure. Yes, despite the fact that there’s absolutely nothing inherently gendered in nail polish colors, several companies have developed “man-friendly” polishes. A company annoyingly named Alphanail, for instance, claims that its line of fugly colors is “designed by men. Worn by warriors.” Oh, warriors, you say?

I’m slightly baffled as to why Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond Chandler would take to Facebook, of all places, for input on changes to the Army grooming standards.

When the seasons change, I like to be prepared. I tend to start stocking up on potential fall nail polish shades by, say, mid-August. Of course, I already know which colors I’ll be wearing because they’re the same ones I go for every year — rich, autumnal reds, neutral nudes and taupes and muted shades of true blues and greens.

Here are my top 10 picks for fall and winter nail polish. Click to buy after the jump! Keep reading »
Can’t afford a Chanel bag? That’s okay, just wear the brand on your nails instead. Chanel’s just revealed three of its new colors for spring 2012–titled April, May and June. Perfectly fruit punchy, wouldn’t you say? [Fashionista]
Speaking of “The Muppets,” Kermit the Frog and Fozzie the Bear don’t necessary conjure thoughts of slick manicures and pedicures, but don’t tell OPI that. They’ve launched a collection of 12 new colors in conjunction with the upcoming “Muppets” movie, several of which feature over-the-top sparkles and all of which include radical Muppet-y names. Want one of the more subdued shades? Try Animal-istic, Meep Meep Meep, Wocka Wocka, Pepes Purple Passion, Designers De Better or Warm and Fozzie. For more outrageous, sparkly shades, go for Rainbow Connection, Excuse Moi, Gone Gonzo, Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Divine Swine, or Gettin Miss Piggy With It. But patience, Kermie! You won’t be able to get your paws — or hooves — on these shades until November. For now, you’ll simply have to approximate Miss Piggy Pink yourself. [OPI] Keep reading »
