Serial Manicure Ruiners Can Now Invest In A Stylish Set Of Fingernail Covers

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.

Will You Be Wearing Matching Lips And Nails This Fall?

So I guess matching your lipstick to your nail polish is kind of a thing now? A bevy of designers, from Giorgio Armani to Zac Posen, walked coordinating shades down the runway last season, but something about its slightly contrived nature led me to believe it was just one of those things that wouldn’t take…

Now Your Hands Can Be A Coloring Book

One of the saddest parts of being an adult is the lack of opportunities to use crayons, which is why I’m so stoked about this pack of Crayola nail polish, which includes eight shimmery colors in miniature bottles.
