Cats & Nail Art? The Internet Might Explode

Squeedorable calico cat Pudge is far and away the world’s best Internet cat and that is not up for discussion. So you can imagine my thrill that Pudge and her human now have a DIY series on YouTube called “Pudge It Yourself!” The first DIY is cute kittycat nail art, which work like temporary tattoos. All you need is a printer, adhesive paper scissors, and light nail polish colors. If you don’t own a printer, you can also get your Pudge nail art decals for $5 straight from the Pudge store. Yes, there’s a Pudge store. [YouTube]

5 Household Ways To Make Your Nails Dry Faster

Who doesn’t need their nails to dry faster? If you’re like me and regularly wake up with weird creasing and indentations in your nail polish then you probably don’t have the patience to let them dry all the way. I paint my nails once or twice a week but I simply cannot resist immediately typing on my keyboard or eating food right after I’ve painted them. Today, all of us antsy mcpantsies will take a stance and find a way to make our nail polishes dry quicker because, let’s be honest, none of those “quick dry drop” things really work and they also make your nail polish chip faster. Read more on College Candy…

This Is What 53 Coats Of Nail Polish Looks Like

53 coats of nail polish

Nail art blogger Varnished Valkyrie always wanted to see what would happen if she layered her nails with as much polish as she possibly could, and one night she finally got bored enough to actually do it. Here’s the finished result: 53 coats deep. It’s weirdly impressive, right? Random thought: I might need to add 23 more manicure ruining tips to this list, just to keep up with this rapid progress.

how to do panda nail art
Squee!

Longtime readers of The Frisky will know two things for certain: one, it used to be a lot more fun around here when our girl Simcha Whitehill worked with us, and two, I’m just a teeny bit obsessed with pandas. Well, today’s my lucky day! Here’s Simcha, aka nail art expert Miss Pop, in a video for the blog Beauty High teaching us how super-easy it is to do panda nail art. All you need is black and white polish and a couple of different sized pins! Aren’t they darling? I’ve got to make an appointment with Miss Pop and rock those panda nails myself. [Beauty High]

I’ve been a fan of Sinful Colors nail polish for a long time, for multiple reasons: one being the fact that it only costs $2 a bottle, another being that it is sold near the beauty counter at Walgreens, which means I buy like three bottles of it per week. Last night I layered SC’s bright blue “Most Sinful” polish under a topcoat of the glittery “Hottie” and was delighted to find it created a sort of galaxy print effect. I shared a pic of my surprise space mani on our Instagram (by the way, are you following us on Instagram? You totally should be! We’re @thefrisky), but I thought it was also finally time to give my favorite cheapie nail polish brand a proper review.

Why draw the line at just wearing nail polish on your fingers and toes when you can broadcast your lacquer love on your phone, too? If nail polish is really, really your thing (sup, Megan?), you can snag one of these new iPhone cases straight from none other than the source of ambrosia itself, OPI — the polish professionals are launching six cases, available for versions 4, 4S, and 5, featuring signature shades I’m Not Really a Waitress, Big Apple Red, You Don’t Know Jacques, Dating a Royal, Pink Flamenco, and Need Sunglasses? Each case comes accompanied by a matching mini bottle of OPI Nail Lacquer, which almost redeems the $40 price tag. I don’t know if I would actually walk around sporting a phone case with a branded bottle of nail polish on it, but those polish splatters are another story — very cool. [BellaSugar]

The 16 Raunchiest Nail Polish Color Names Of All Time

Nail polish names have always been a source of the giggles — “You Don’t Know Jacques”? “Friar, Friar, Pants On Fire”? “Don’t Socra-Tease Me”?! So ridiculous, yet genius, there’s even a blog devoted to the dumbest nail polish names ever. But those names pale in comparison to some of the shades I found with names so raunchy (“Pounded on the Kitchen Table”? Really?!) I almost blushed. Check out 16 of the raunchiest and overtly sexual nail polish names above…

  • Turkish Airlines has banned stewardesses from wearing red lipstick and nail polish, claiming bright makeup “impairs visual integrity.” Critics say the restriction is a sign the moderate Islamic country is becoming more conservative, in particular towards women’s sexuality. [Guardian UK]
  • According to the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Carl Levin (D-MI), there are over 70 sexual assaults involving military personnel every single day. This comes following the news that 26,000 service members had reported “unwanted sexual contact” in 2012, up from 19,000 the year before. In response, President Obama sharply rebuked those who are “betraying the uniform.”  [Yahoo, Salon]
