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…

Pretty Nails For A Good Cause

We all could use a wintry nail polish to not just carry us through the holiday season, but also to perk up our fingers and toes in the dark, cold months ahead. Burgundy is one of our fave colors: It’s as pretty as red, but not so predictable. L’Oreal Paris will donate $3 of every…

Nars Re-Releases Vintage Nail Polishes Named For Blockbuster Films

I feel as if I’m always on a quest for my next favorite nail polish. As someone who treats myself to a weekly manicure, seven days can seem like an eternity and I can get bored really fast. That’s why I let out a squeal when I first saw Nars’ “Zulu,” one of five vintage…

The manicurist used rounded press-on nails for the female models, but…

Fashion’s Night Out is on Friday, which means the fashion industry’s brightest bulbs will clack around New York City trying to get you to buy stuff.

Beauty Test Drive: Ginger + Liz Colour Collection Nail Polish

I hadn’t really given much thought to vegan and organic nail polish, except to assume that the lacquer probably chips really quickly. All those chemicals traditional polishes contain must be necessary for a reason, right? Boy, was I wrong!

Girl Talk: How Black Nail Polish Changed My Life

I’d always thought black nail polish was only for goths, but against my jeans and plain pink t-shirt, my manicure looked perfect.I’ve always been too self-conscious to sport a style of my own, and unlike my friends, I’ve never felt comfortable in what the masses are wearing.

Enough With The Alexander McQueen Tribute Products

That fashion designer Alexander McQueen committed suicide earlier this year was tragic enough. That a group of vultures are using his death to line their pockets with cash is plain sickening. It’s one thing when a trendsetting and chic magazine like Visionaire pays homage to the designer by devoting an entire issue to his iconic…

A Brief History Of Nail Polish

Anything can become weird if you think about it too much. Like how if you say your name over and over again, it begins to sound like nothing but weird sounds? That’s kind of what happened to me yesterday when I zoned out during my manicure. As I watched the polish going on my nails,…

Why Is It So Hard To Make A Non-Cheesy “Gossip Girl” Collection?

The time has come to sadly admit it: “Gossip Girl” has jumped the shark. We know, we know. It had so much potential back in the days when uhh-mazing people like Anna Sui were designing themed collections for Target and headbands were cute again. Then Little J got stuck in a blender with Courtney Love…
