Kylie Jenner Spends How Long Doing Her Nails!?

People say an awful lot of negative things about Kylie Jenner, but the one thing they can’t ever criticize is her nails. Her nails are literally never not done and never look less than perfect – and this is coming from not a fan of the Kardashian-Jenner tribe. Read more on College Candy…More »

What Are Hump Nails & Why Are They A Thing?

I am shocked and I am horrified. I have no words for what I have just accosted my eyes with. Hump nails, also called bubble nails, are created by layering acrylic paint on top of the nail until it creates a dome shape. The tip of the nail is kept either short (called a bubble)… More »

Beauty Test Drive: Dermelect’s “ME” Nail Lacquer Is Chip-Free (For A While Anyway)

I have a mild obsession with any type of nail “system” that involves magic combinations of top coats and secret polish formulas. While I happily fork over cash for pointless purchases in other categories (ahem, overpriced coffee), I’m weirdly stingy when it comes to salon manicures and am always looking for fun ways to DIY it. I’m all… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

I’ve never been into gel manicures, not only because they cost more than my lazy at-home DIY nail routine, but because the effort it takes to remove them kind of freaks me out. Gels aren’t known to be great for your health either, so I was mystified by Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel nail polish. It promises two weeks of gel-like color and… More »


Beauty IRL: Get Your Nails Done

Here’s an excellent Tuesday night ritual. Pour yourself a drink, turn on all the lights in your living room and sit down to do your nails. Take as much time as you need. Dig through that shoebox full of nail polish and nail files that have lost their grit, and find a color you’re really… More »


25 Everyday Things You Can’t Do After You’ve Painted Your Nails

We’ve all been there: it’s Sunday morning and that new Essie nail color is calling your name.

Beauty Test Drive: Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer In Lovers Creep And Bridge & Tunnel

I’ve been biting the hell out of my nails lately (disgusting, I know), which means I need to keep them constantly painted to prevent me from chewing. Since it’s the holiday season, I jumped on the chance to try Smith & Cult’s gorgeous holiday colors, a dark red called Lovers Creep and a shimmery gold… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Nails Inc. Matte Top Coat

When I first got my hands on a bottle of Nails Inc. Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat, my first question was why anyone would even care whether their nails were matte. The matte trend has come around several times these past few years, but it never really made any sense to me. Most of the… More »


We Live In A World Of Leopard Print Nail Polish

The state of New Jersey might have you believe that everything leopard print has already been invented, but you would be wrong. Uslu Airlines is not an airlines, but a cosmetics company and they have invented what appears, according to Refinery29, to be the first leopard print nail polish. The Internet has many a leopardMore »


Beauty Test Drive: Marc Jacobs Neutral Nail Polish

The neutral nail color trend, AKA mannequin hands, is returning this fall. Marc Jacobs’ Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer in 9 to 5 is part of Marc’s exclusive runway nail polish collection and promises opaque coverage and high shine. Last weekend, I attended a wedding and didn’t want my nail polish to compete with my brightly-colored, graphic-patterned… More »

Beauty Test Drive: Formula X Press Pods

It’s inevitable: whenever you have somewhere to go, your nail polish chips. Today, three of my nails chipped — so annoying! I was about to use my emergency nail polish remover that I have stashed in my desk, until I remembered a few of my nails were accented with glitter — and there was no… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Essie’s “Style Hunter” Is The Perfect Pinkish Red

Usually I avoid red polish in the summer because I don’t think it emphasizes my tan as well as colors that compliment my olive skin. See: pale pastels. When we received a batch of Essie colors in the mail to Test Drive, I couldn’t fight my attraction to this watermelon red called “Style Hunter.” Why? More »


Beauty Test Drive: Priti NYC 5 Free Nail Polish

I’m not someone who gets excited about specific nail polish colors. I know there are some women who are very specific about how they want one coat of Essie Ballet Slippers and one coat of Essie Mademoiselle. I’ve always just picked whatever color randomly struck my fancy at the moment. But when Priti NYC sent… More »


Have You Tried (Or Would You Try) Cuticle Tattoos?

Sometimes, a great manicure simply isn’t enough. Why settle for awesome nails when you can have that and stylish cuticles, right? I’m going to have to assume that was the line of thinking when cuticle tattoos were first created. They’re pretty much exactly what they sound like — little pieces of below-the-nail art that are reminiscent of… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Laura Mercier Nail Lacquer

Like most women, I have 312 bottles of nail polish knocking around my apartment at any given moment. When a package of spring beauty products from Laura Mercier arrived at the office, I had mixed emotions when Sophie handed me a bright lavender nail polish called Reckless: Yay, pretty, expensive nail polish!!!!! and also Oh, I alreadyMore »


Beauty Test Drive: Essie Fill The Gap Treatment For Nail Ridges

As I get older, the ridges on my nails become more and more noticeable. Although vertical nail ridges are totally harmless, they can make at home manicures frustrating. Filing them down can weaken nails and painting over them can lead to a streaky manicure. After a long search, I have finally found a solution I… More »
