Beauty Test Drive: Avon Nailwear Pro Nail Polish

Next time the Avon lady comes a-calling, I'm not going to buy any nail polish from her. Avon sent the Frisky office some of their spring/summer products and I have to be honest, I was pretty disappointed with their Avon Nailwear Pro polish. (You've been seeing me wear it in the color Coral Reef all…

Our Top 10 Nail Color Picks For Summer 2012

Every year I look forward to summer's vivid, unabashed nail polish shades, but this season's selections are especially blazing — eye-searing, in fact. We've been seeing a major upswing in all things neon since winter, and colors just keep getting brighter and brighter. Where fashion goes, nails follow suit, and isn't it wonderful? Nothing yank…

Duck Nails Must Be Stopped

Seriously, these things are making me GAG. Just in the same way that Bon Iver erotica gives me the major skeeves, these "duck nails," as they're being called, evoke a powerful internal response. They're just so repulsive, so nauseating, so wrong. (More examples of duck nails after the jump.)…

We Know Neon Nails Are Illegal, But Here’s Why

For those of you who have been up at night, tortured by the fact that neon nail polish is illegal but not knowing why, you're not alone. After the original article in More left us with more questions than answers, the Daily Mail got on the case to figure out once and for all why…

Your Neon Nail Polish Is Totally Illegal, BTW

Seems ridiculous, I know, but neon nail polish is illegal to produce in the United States. That doesn't mean you'll get ticketed for wearing it (if you get your grubby hands on some, that is). It just means that your neon polishes are going to come import-only. For now. “Neon polish is actually illegal to…

7 Things I Can’t Help But Buy Even Though I Already Own Something Just Like It

I am and have always been a creature of habit. I think it's a symptom of my OCD, but when I like something, I really  like it and I can't get enough of it and things just like it. I once ate the same tuna fish sandwich (on a baguette with avocado and tomato) everyday for four…

Jew Polish

That's polish (as in nail), not Polish (as in from Poland). Although this fictional nail polish line is inspired by the best Polish treats NYC's Russ & Daughters has to offer.  I think I'll do Lox & Load on my toes and Babka Streisand on my fingers. Also, there needs to be a color inspired…

White Chocolate Nail Polish Remover? Yes, Please!

I love painting my nails. Removing my nail polish? Not so much. I hate the feeling of defeat as I scrub off a once-pristine manicure, and I really, really hate the gross chemical smell of most nail polish removers. That's where Ciate's white chocolate nail polish remover comes in. Yep, you read that right: it'…

Would You Wear: Pastel Nail Polish?

Colors are everywhere this spring, whether it's eye-searing neon or soft, muted pastels. Though I've definitely been more adventurous with my sartorial choices as of late, I can mostly be found in black on black on black … but I can't deny, nor explain, an attraction to all things vivid or Easter egg-y this season.

Nail Company Brings Caviar To The Masses

Nails and nail art are getting a ton of action as of late, from celeb-favorite polishes and embellishments to Obama-backed color collections. I'll admit that I'm a bit of a fool for nail trends, seeing as they require next to no commitment and generally come at the price of one manicure — I even went…

Chart: Things That Actually Remove Your Nail Polish

Winona and I agree: Nail polish remover isn't always the best at, you know, actually removing nail polish. Instead, we've found that your average quotidian activities like oh, typing, sleeping and zipping up zippers will do the job for you just fine. Even and especially after you've just gotten your nails did. So we present,…

Amped to try some of this spring's nail art trends? Get started with Sally Hansen's nail art pen. This fine-tipped pen is as easy to use as a marker and opaque enough to only require a single coat. Play it safe with some easy yet colorful French tips, or go crazy with stripes, shapes, and…

Southwest Airlines passenger Jeanie Daniels is butthurt because she was jailed for 10 hours after arguing with a flight attendant about painting her nails onboard. While flying from California to Texas, Daniels whipped out her nail polish and began giving herself a manicure until a flight attendant came by to tell her other passengers were complaining…

Behold, A Birthday Party In A Bottle

Deborah Lippman nail polish doesn't mess around. It's not simply shimmery or sparkly, it's packed full of actual glitter. This particular style, called "Happy Birthday," contains a rainbow of reflective confetti, and can be layered over other colors to create different looks. Who cares if my actual birthday isn't until May? I think I'm getting…

Seal Subtracts Wedding Ring, Adds Yellow Nail Polish

I have no idea when it suddenly became socially passable for dudes to leave the house wearing nail polish, but I do know that I want desperately for this trend to go directly back where it came from and die there. Please, I'm begging you. I can stomach — barely — the chipped remnants of…

A Top Notch Top Coat

Having a manicure is kind of "my thing." I very rarely have bare, unpolished nails for longer than a day or two, and my bathroom cabinet is stocked with polish colors I love. Unfortunately, "my thing" can be a bit of a pricey luxury, as getting a manicure once a week adds up! Recently, however,…

Bright Blue Nail Polish: It’s A Thing

If there's any universally flattering color, it's blue. There's a shade to match anyone's coloring and, done right, a really bright blue looks good on everyone. It sounds perilous, especially for those who don't typically sport neon colors, but why not integrate a flashy cyan by confining it to a truly risk-free area like, say,…

Makeup Bag: Nude Nails For All

I've never been one to adhere to "seasonal" nail colors — neon pink in the dead of winter? Bring it on. Despite my best efforts to the contrary, I still dress almost exclusively in black, an idiosyncrasy that I will defend until I've gone blue in the face, which would actually add a bit of…
