These Polishes Score A Perfect TenOverTen

tenoverten nail polish

We’re something of nail polish connoisseurs here at The Frisky and TenOverTen polishes are some of the most fun colors priced midrange. Available at Anthropologie or online at TenOverTen’s website, the polishes are made without icky chemicals like formaldehyde, plus they’re not tested on animals. And I can speak from experience when I say that these polishes last. Cute colors, safe, slow to chip, and cruelty free? Now, that’s beautiful. [$18, Anthropologie]

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: Chanukah Nails!

Thanksgiving Nails
This pumpkin pie-inspired nail art works year round. Read More »

It’s Chanukah Party time! And this year, I’m getting a copy of the new Laika Magazineout 12/12/12. I’m so excited to have this design in its first issue, especially because all of the products in Laika’s pages are Cruelty Free. Bonus!

The polishes I used here are from one of my favorite local NYC shops: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Their 100 percent vegan products are truly amazing. I’m a big fan of their lip tars and lacquers. To make this look festive, I used polish colors: Spanglemaker, Rx and Inky. But really any color combo with high contrast will work well.

After the jump, get the DIY to steal this look straight out of the pages of Laika Magazine!

We’ve featured KayleighOC’s nail art on the site before but realized she had a plethora of new styles you need to see. Read more…

The Perfect Holiday Beauty Supplement For Any Good Nail Art-Loving Jew

I went to Hebrew school for three years, and every single second of it was unequivocally lame. I was, of course, really terribly behaved, because that’s the family legacy. (My dad was ejected from the same establishment for riding a bike through the halls 30+ years earlier.) But maybe if I had Rabbi Yael Buechler as a teacher, I would have retained more from the experience than the Shabbat Candle Lighting prayer and a latent love of coconut macaroons. The 26-year-old Jewish day school teacher captured media attention last year for her unorthodox religious teaching methods. Read: manicures. Buechler started the Midrash Manicures (referring to “the deep textual interpretation of the Bible, with every word examined for meaning”) club at Solomon Schechter School of Westchester, where she teaches sixth, seventh, and eighth grade girls how to paint their nails in designs inspired by weekly Torah portions.

The woman doing the mom’s pedicure actually asked her, “Is that a boy or a girl?” [Queerty]

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the pie. Pumpkin first, pecan is a close second. Even better, since Thanksgiving is a holiday about gluttony is that I can have both guilt-free! Now that’s something to be thankful for. So, I decided to also combine my two sweet loves on my nails. Floss Gloss “Tan Lines” is the perfect pumpkin color. Essie’s “Little Brown Dress” make up the brown slices. And I added some metallic patterning because hey, it’s a holiday party! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: Waiting For Lightning To Strike

It was a dark and stormy Monday night… Before Sandy took my electricity, cell reception, and internet connection, I painted my nails with this look. I was inspired by that quietly terrifying moment, right before the storm, when the sky feels like an ominous crystal ball.

My heart goes out to all the people who have lost what cannot be restored. For those of us who can return and rebuild, I wish you a speedy recovery. And a big thanks goes out to all the volunteers, medical staff, and government workers who have kept us going.

For this ombré pyramid and clouds look, I used Maybelline’s Audacious Asphalt and painted two coats on as the base color. Then, I made the ombré pyramid with Deborah Lippmann’s Stormy Weather and the metallic peak is Color Club’s What A Drag. Then, I swiped each side of my nail diagonally with Essie’s Licorice. For the clouds, I dabbed on Essie’s Chinchilly. The key to creating the ombré effect, as you might remember from this tutorial, is to apply the polish with a makeup sponge. For the clouds, I used the skinny side of the sponge, for the pyramid, I used the wide base.

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: DIY Halloween Nails In Black And White

Hands down Halloween is my fave holiday. Sure, I usually dress like a freak from another universe on any given day, but I like when I get to blend in on October 31st. I’ve already been heavily preparing my costume by eating my way through two bags of candy this week. This year, I’m going to fill out my costume with some extra booty— or as I’ve taken to calling it, flava boom. Although I can’t decide what to be: an Olympic synchronized swimmer or Dolly Parton, again.
