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.

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… READ MORE »

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.

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… READ MORE »

I’m slightly baffled as to why Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond Chandler would take to Facebook, of all places, for input on changes to the Army grooming standards. Maybe he thought his Facebook pals were the best people to solicit advice on the Army’s consideration of a ban on French manicures, earrings and ponytails? READ MORE »

When the seasons change, I like to be prepared. I tend to start stocking up on potential fall nail polish shades by, say, mid-August. Of course, I already know which colors I’ll be wearing because they’re the same ones I go for every year — rich, autumnal reds, neutral nudes and taupes and muted shades… READ MORE »
