I’m Not So Sure About Julep.com, The Nail-Polish-Of-The-Month Club

Beauty Test Drive: Sinful Colors Nail Polish

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’…

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…

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: “Girls” Knit Nails

I’m obsessed with “Girls” and of course, the euphonious line of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes inspired by them! Jessa, a color that can’t decide if it wants to be red or brown, or both.
