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
The Frisky's top 10 favorite nail color picks for summer 2012! Read More »

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!

Summertime is all about the colors on your nails and, girl, have I got the color for you: Anardana, from the Thakoon for NARS collaboration. Gorgeous, right?  This color is professional enough for work, sexy enough for a night of dancing under the stars, and girly enough for a picnic in the park. But if this rich pink hue doesn’t do it for you, Thakoon for NARS has got five other colors evoking an Indian spice market. I think I’m in love. [$18, NarsCosmetics.com]

I’m not going to lie: I get a manicure once a week. It’s a luxury, yes, but for me it’s a necessary one that’s worth the $13 and twenty minutes of dry time. You see, I err on the side of, ahem, nonchalant when it comes to my “look” — I think Kate Moss, you see Courtney Love — so a glossy coat of fresh lacquer is often one of the few things that make my style cohesive. I may not have washed my hair in three days, my lipstick may be smeared and faded, my skirt may be on sideways, but look closely and you will see I’m not just any vagabond. I’m a vagabond with a manicure. It’s very Derelicte, my friends. Keep reading »

I’m baaaaaaack! You know I could never really leave you, baby. So you can catch me, Simcha — also known as Miss Pop Nails — doing up digits every week exclusively for The Frisky. Each Wednesday, aptly nicknamed Hump Day, I’m going to be showing you how to Get Nailed with my hawtest new nail art looks. Are ya’ll ready for this?!

To get this nail art party started, I did aMad Men”-inspired design on our absolutely fabulous Astrosexologist Kiki T. We’re both excited for the season five finale this weekend. But alas, it is bittersweet because they— spoiler alert— killed off my favorite character Lane Pryce, played by Jared Harris. Tear! So my tribute nail to him is front and center because he should always be the star.

Order of Nails: Mad Men cigarette hand, Mad Men opening credit shot where he’s falling down the building with the totally sexy leg on it, Lane Pryce, Season 5 ad, and a pinky with the most popular thing on set second to Joan—scotch.

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 week in What Are We Wearing Today? photos.) Keep reading »
