Get Toxic With Illamasqua

Some women play it safe when it comes to nail color, and rarely go outside of their pink and red comfort zone. But this spring, Illamasqua wants you to engage in some toxic behavior with the new nail varnish collection, Toxic Nature. Like nature itself, this collection isn’t sweet and light. Instead colors like mushroom, mint, orange, rose, and plum are kicked up a notch with rich textures and pops of acid brightness. The Toxic Nature collection consists of five varnishes with names as interesting as the colors — Purity is a peach, Ochre Radium is an acid lime shimmer, Gamma is a neon orange, Bacterium is a pearlescent ash, and Stagnate is a gray mauve. Illamasqua has aggressively jumped into the high-end nail polish game, and says its polishes are hard-wearing, chip-resistant, and will last until you remove the polish. The Toxic Nature collection will be available at Sephora and Sephora.com beginning in April. Keep reading »

Who Wants Hypercolor Nails?


Speaking of things from the ’90s having their comeuppance, do you remember Hypercolor t-shirts? I absolutely loved them, in theory. In practice, I didn’t like that people took it as license to try to make a hand print on your stomach. I also hated how the fabric always looked a different color around the armpits. Gross! But, I am thoroughly obsessed with this nail polish, In the Mood, that changes colors depending on your body temperature. The polish comes in all sorts of color combinations—blue and green, pink and purple, yellow and orange. If your nails are long, the polish looks like a super colorful French manicure since your nail bed is much warmer than the tips. Count me in for Guilty, the blue/purple combo.

Kate Middleton Gets “No More Waity Katie” Purple Nail Polish By Butter London

Cheese puff celebs like Justin Bieber introduce their own nail polish lines. But Butter London has named their own limited edition nail polish for Kate Middleton, a shimmery purple called No More Waity Katie (her nickname in the press). Supposedly, No More Waity Katie is greige — grey and beige — but that color sure looks like purple to me! I’d like to get my fingers on this polish — and this polish on my fingers — but, hey, Butter, don’t you think $14 is a bit stiff? Not all of us are marrying into royalty, you know.

Since When Does Nail Polish Get Rated R?

This nail polish name makes me feel like a stranger is offering me candy to get in his van. Shudder. I can believe this was just chillin’ like whaaaa at my local drugstore in the aisle I spend the most money/time in. Creepiest nail polish name ever! Also, this slutty red is for women over 18. I should know, it’s my fave color. Keep reading »
