Makeup Bag: 6 Shades Of Beautiful Brown Nail Polish

I was feeling really emo over the weekend, so I bought some dark OPI nail polish that I thought would channel the cold darkness of my heart, but when I put it on it turned out to be the PRETTIEST medium brown with mauve undertones, and I was like, “Aww that’s so cute!” Conclusions: I suck at being goth, and brown nail polish is the bomb. Wear these chocolate-y shades now before the warm weather of spring has you reaching for brighter colors. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

I usually go for crazy nail polish colors like neon pink and rainbow glitter, but the other day I randomly bought a bottle of rose gold polish, and the surprisingly subtle shade is shaping up to be my new favorite. The pink undertones make it flattering on any skin tone and help it stand out from other gold polishes that are everywhere this season. Perfect. [$7.50, Amazon]

The Color Of The Year: Emerald Green

Every year, the people over at Pantone declare one color the color of the year. It’s the color you’re going to see a whole lot of for the next 12 months. This past year’s color was Tangerine Tango, but just this week, Pantone announced the color of 2013 — Emerald Green. We thought we’d give you a jump on the green trend by giving you six gorgeous emerald eyeshadows and nail polishes.

Why would anybody want a bottle of nail polish shaped like a butt? And yet! The people behind Bootie Babe nail polish believe that you will get over your cognitive dissonance and purchase an ass-shaped bottle of nail polish. They come in colors like “Hella Hiney” (that’s a lovely cerulean blue, in case you were wondering) and “Red Riding Hump” (red, natch). What nail polish and butts have to do with each other, may we hopefully never ever find out.

The scene: 8:30 p.m pretty much every Tuesday, my living room.

Alright, I’ve got my glass of wine poured, yoga pants on, “Parks & Rec” cued up on Netflix, and a brand new bottle of oxblood nail polish. Oxblood is so in right now. Obviously. I’m pampering myself and saving money in the process! My life is awesome. Maybe when I’m done I’ll take a picture of my perfectly manicured hand holding the bottle of oxblood nail polish and post it on Pinterest. Yes, I will definitely do that.

At this point I should know better than to get my nails done, because every single time I leave the salon with a fresh manicure, it’s inevitably ruined by the time I get home. There are just way too many variables that contribute to their destruction — basic human functions like using keys, texting, handling money, eating snacks, and going shopping immediately post-polish can all result in a less-than-perfect paint job. It’s just one of those ridiculous first world problems that really isn’t a big deal, but it can totally feel like one at the time, especially when you’ve just forked over $13 for the service (and maybe an extra dollar for quick-dry).

At long last, a company called Nails In Motion picked up on the problem and created these fingernail covers to defend your freshly lacquered fingertips against nicks and smudges. I doubt I’ll actually invest in a set (I mean, for their $24.99 price tag I could get one and a half manicures, and they’d be rendered frustratingly useless should you forget them in your car or buried at the bottom of your purse), but there’s a strange comfort in just knowing that they exist.

Nail art has been around for a long while, but only in the past year or so has it evolved from something you were more likely to see on your cool artsy friend into a ubiquitous trend spotted on everyone from Zooey Deschanel to Beyoncé. The $50 Minx manicure made popular by Katy Perry is more than we’d generally be willing to spend on something so temporary (and, um, tiny), but on the off chance you have $250,000 you’re looking to be really careless with, and you’ve already ruled out eating it, snorting things with it, and donating to the poor (!), why not make like Kelly Osbourne at the Emmys and cash in on the Azature black diamond manicure? (Yes, the same one that drove Winona to pack up her things and take off for Jupiter. We’ll never forgive you for that, Azature.) What, like that’s not a completely reasonable and responsible way to spend your money? Keep reading »
