It’s inevitable: whenever you have somewhere to go, your nail polish chips. Today, three of my nails chipped — so annoying! I was about to use my emergency nail polish remover that I have stashed in my desk, until I remembered a few of my nails were accented with glitter — and there was no… READ MORE »

Usually I avoid red polish in the summer because I don’t think it emphasizes my tan as well as colors that compliment my olive skin. See: pale pastels. When we received a batch of Essie colors in the mail to Test Drive, I couldn’t fight my attraction to this watermelon red called “Style Hunter.” Why? READ MORE »

I’m not someone who gets excited about specific nail polish colors. I know there are some women who are very specific about how they want one coat of Essie Ballet Slippers and one coat of Essie Mademoiselle. I’ve always just picked whatever color randomly struck my fancy at the moment. But when Priti NYC sent… READ MORE »

You have to be living under a rock to have never seen an Essie nail polish: they’re a staple of modern woman-dom, a nail paint that you can find in nearly every pharmacy and even J.Crew!. But did you know that there’s a real Essie behind the global brand?

When it comes to spring nail color, I’m feeling a bit torn between my favorite poppy red and the pretty pastel shades that are big for the season. Unlike Jessica’s creamy coloring, my olive skin tone often clashes with rich pastels. On a routine trip to Sephora — what? —  I spotted these Formula X… READ MORE »

Like most women, I have 312 bottles of nail polish knocking around my apartment at any given moment. When a package of spring beauty products from Laura Mercier arrived at the office, I had mixed emotions when Sophie handed me a bright lavender nail polish called Reckless: Yay, pretty, expensive nail polish!!!!! and also Oh, I alreadyREAD MORE »

As I get older, the ridges on my nails become more and more noticeable. Although vertical nail ridges are totally harmless, they can make at home manicures frustrating. Filing them down can weaken nails and painting over them can lead to a streaky manicure. After a long search, I have finally found a solution I… READ MORE »

I’d seen a million ads for Julep.com on my Facebook or various clothing and beauty sites and they always caught my eye. There’d be pictures of nail polishes in cute colors and something about getting a new box every month. Fun! I live on a budget, though, so I always quelled my desire to join. READ MORE »

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.

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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.

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… READ MORE »

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?

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… READ MORE »
