Our Top 10 Nail Polish Picks For Fall

With the promise of a new season comes the necessity to change things up, from our hair to our wardrobes to our go-to nail colors. It’s time to break up with our summer brights — so long, neon, it was fun while it lasted — and move on to more subdued shades. Luckily, our favorite nail polish brands are well-acquainted with the predicament we’re in right now, and they’ve come to the rescue with brand-new collections of sultry hues that can be worn well through the winter, too. (Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our old favorites, either.) For best results, pair with a cashmere sweater (when the time comes — don’t rush it!) and some sweet motorcycle boots. Unless you’ve got a fresh pedicure, that is — don’t worry, we won’t judge you for wearing sandals while you still can. Keep reading »

Get The Look: Michelle Obama’s Awesome Blueish-Grey Nail Polish

And on a completely shallow note, Michelle Obama looked amazing in a Tracy Reese dress at last night’s Democratic National Convention — but it was her nail polish that caught my eye. Upon closer inspection — I couldn’t sleep, okay? — the polish appears to be a blue-ish grey color, possibly in tribute to the Democratic Party, but more likely just further proof that she’s naturally fierce in the style department. I’m not sure what brand/color she was wearing, but I found a few similar shades — check ‘em out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Will You Be Wearing Matching Lips And Nails This Fall?

Chanel Tries Dada

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 in the real world. It strikes me as having a very sophisticated Upper East Side vibe, which just doesn’t work for me. And yet ever-tempting brands like Dior and Chanel are giving their seal of approval by launching “twin sets” of nail lacquer and lipstick intended to be worn together, making the matchy-matchy trend a touch more difficult to resist. Are you into it, or do you think this is a look best worn by ladies who lunch?

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. It would be such a fun addition to a very grown-up cosmetics collection. Now I just need to learn how to color inside the lines. [$12, Fred Flare]

This Bottle Of Nail Polish Costs $250,000 And I Don’t Want To Live On This Planet Anymore

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the most expensive nail polish in the world: Azature’s Black Diamond. The shimmery black formula contains 267 carats of crushed diamonds, and–yep, you read the headline correctly–one bottle will cost you $250,000. The other day I spent $12 on a bottle of nail polish and felt a little guilty and self-indulgent, so I don’t even know how to fully comprehend the fact that this exists, and that (presumably) someone is going to buy it. I mean, can you imagine? Every time you chipped your manicure on your keyboard, you’d be losing, like, a thousand dollars. Stressful. Apparently Azature is deigning to sell a department store version for $25, but I think I’ll just DIY my own by shredding up some dollar bills, mixing them into a bottle of Wet N’ Wild, and then crying myself to sleep.

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: Top 7 Neon Nail Polishes

In the summer, I’m all about neon toes. I’ll spare you the shot my hooves, because I love you. Here are all of my favorite day-glos on my hands. As I’ve hunted for the most saturated shades, I’ve seen some serious clunkers — even from some of my fave brands. Neons are hard pigments to get popping in nail polish form. Like all lacquers, some are better than others, but with day-glos, so many fall short of even being wearable. Who has time to apply five coats, let alone wait for them to dry?! So, I wanted to separate the men from the boys, so to speak. Here are the best and the brightest colors you can do up your digits with!

TIP: Before you apply neon polish, do a coat of an opaque nude or white to help the color really glow. In this hot shot, I’m sporting my favorite nude, Paul & Joe #25.

Nail Polish And Hairspray Linked To Diabetes

Bad news for the well manicured: If the cosmetics you slather yourself with contain phthalates, you may be more likely to get type 2 diabetes. A new study finds a link between the man-made chemicals—which can mimic human hormones and are found in everything from nail polish to shampoo to hairspray—and the disease. Women ages 20 to 80 were studied, and those whose urine contained the highest concentration of the chemicals were almost twice as likely to have diabetes as those with the lowest concentrations.

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: Stud It Up!

Summer Nail Color Picks

This summer, I’m all about the studs. And not just the shirtless ones at the beach (although I would also like to get my hands on some of them too.) For my beauty expert buddies at Lifebooker, I bedazzled some series nail hardware. Check out editor Anna’s done up digits— hope she’s not going to try to get through an airport metal detector with these.

Here’s how you can have this hawt #GetNailedWithLB look! Paint your nails as per usual. Then bust out your nail art striper and draw lines across your nails where you want to stud.

To apply the studs you will need an orange stick, a base coat, a nail art sealer or bonder top coat and some studs you can find at a beauty supply store. First, coat your nail with your nail art sealer or bonder topcoat. Then, tap the tip of your orange stick into the basecoat brush to pick up a bit of polish. Next, tap your stick onto the stud to lift it up and place it down on the nail. Coat your nail again with the nail art sealer or bonder and boom! Your nails are more metal than Ozzy. Check out some more studded nail art styles above!
