Joslyn James, porn star and one of Tiger Wood’s many (many) mistresses, will launch a beauty line next year called Shameless. But that’s not all!

The Lady Is A Vamp

No, not those vamps. I’m talking about the sexpot bombshells who know there’s nothing like dark, glittery nails to captivate and entice a smitten man.

Shrewd New Marketing Scam: Male-Specific Nail Polishes

It seems like no corner of the beauty industry will be left unturned when it comes to finding ways to market to men. The newest beauty trend for guys? The MANicure. Yes, despite the fact that there’s absolutely nothing inherently gendered in nail polish colors, several companies have developed “man-friendly” polishes. A company annoyingly named…

Army Considers Ban On French Manicures And Earrings

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?

Top 10 Nail Polish Picks for Fall

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 shade…

“Wocka Wocka Wocka” On Your Nails With Muppet Polish

Speaking of “The Muppets,” Kermit the Frog and Fozzie the Bear don’t necessary conjure thoughts of slick manicures and pedicures, but don’t tell OPI that. They’ve launched a collection of 12 new colors in conjunction with the upcoming “Muppets” movie, several of which feature over-the-top sparkles and all of which include radical Muppet-y names. Want…

Pink Parka Your Paws

Two of my guilty pleasures: pretty personal style blogs and nail polish. Often these two things go together, as I end up discovering nail polish shades I might not have considered upon the manicured hands of chic ladies whose looks I covet. Case in point: for the last few weeks, I have been trying to…

Love At First Stroke: OPI’s “Play The Peonies” Nail Polish

It’s been years since I’ve fallen in love with a pink nail lacquer. I usually prefer variations of gray, which are season-less, or some sort of red, which a friend says has become my signature. But I was curious about the new, limited-edition Nice Stems! by OPI collection of shades of pink, from pale frosty…

Shattering Our Expectations: An Ode To OPI’s Shatter Nail Polish

OPI’s recently released “Shatter” nail polishes are the new black in the world of manicures. Our initial encounter with them was less than moving. At first we thought, Won’t it just look like my polish is peeling off? But the salesperson explained that applying Shatter over two coats of regular nail polish would give a…

Beauty Test Drive: Are Sally Hansen Salon Effects Strips Worth The Money?

There have been few innovations in how fingernails are decorated in the last few years–but Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips are one of the best. Salon Effects strips are made of real nail polish; they adhered rather well to my nails and chipped like regular nail polish. The Sally Hansen Salon Effects were really easy…

Get Toxic With Illamasqua

Some women play it safe when it comes to nail color, and rarely go outside of their pink and red comfort zone. But this spring, Illamasqua wants you to engage in some toxic behavior with the new nail varnish collection, Toxic Nature. Like nature itself, this collection isn’t sweet and light. Instead colors like mushroom,…

Who Wants Hypercolor Nails?

Speaking of things from the ’90s having their comeuppance, do you remember Hypercolor t-shirts? I absolutely loved them, in theory. In practice, I didn’t like that people took it as license to try to make a hand print on your stomach. I also hated how the fabric always looked a different color around the…

A Manicure Pam Halpert Would Approve Of

Bored at work? I mean, really bored at work? Then why not try an office supply manicure? Yes, we balked, too, but it actually kind of makes sense. Besides, what were you going to do with all those hole-punch reinforcement tabs anyway? [Vital Juice]…

Cheese puff celebs like Justin Bieber introduce their own nail polish lines.

Since When Does Nail Polish Get Rated R?

This nail polish name makes me feel like a stranger is offering me candy to get in his van. Shudder. I can believe this was just chillin’ like whaaaa at my local drugstore in the aisle I spend the most money/time in. Creepiest nail polish name ever! Also, this slutty red is for women over

Totally DIY-Able Nail Art

I love nail art—been doing it for years, um, been getting it DID for years. I had the raddest, weirdest nails waaaaay before Willow Smith was on the scene. Swarovski crystals, 3D designs that were painstakingly done one petal at a time, multi-color hand-painted scenes, etc — all done by my amazing nail…
