Get Nailed With Miss Pop: How To Get Neon Ombre Nails

I just got my polished paws on Deborah Lippmann’s  Run The World (Girls) summer mini set. With this many hawt neon shades at my fingertips, I just had to take ‘em for a spin with an ombré fade. It’s a look right off the Spring 2012 runway. But the best part is, it’s an easy technique and the perfect way to dip your toes in the nail art pool. So don’t be afraid to dive in! Here’s how you can do up your digits all dayglo …

Must Haves: You’ll need a squishy makeup sponge and three awesomely different shades. I’m all about my new neons, but you can feel free to switch it up. One of my fave combos is turquoise, deep blue, and black. No matter what colors you choose, lay them down lightest to darkest.

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.

I am not qualified to talk about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, because I know literally nothing about it except for this very factual article I read on Vice. What can I say? I’m incredibly American in my ignorance. But oh my god, you guys, a royal wore nail art! Okay, so it was Princess Eugenie of York, which isn’t quite the same thing as, say, Duchess Catherine breaking out the Color Club, but still. Eugenie complimented her purple dress with a Union Jack on all 10 of her digits in honor of her grandmother’s, um, anniversary. Of something. It’s a cute idea, but I think it looks poorly executed and frankly, kind of gross. Thoughts?

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 »

This is what Britney Spears’ nails looked like at the recent FOX upfronts. No wonder she was  trying to keep her hands concealed. Those paws are all gnawed and busted.  I’m pretty sure she can afford a manicure. Get that girl to the salon … for our sake if not for hers. How will we watch her on the “X Factor” with hands like that? We volunteer to personally  escort her to the salon. Our treat! [WOW]
