  • I’m loving this post on Raising My Rainbow, a parenting blog hosted on Queerty written by the mother of “a slightly effeminiate, possibly gay, totally fabulous son.” In this latest post, she writes about taking her son for pedicures and how rudely everyone in the nail salon behaved. 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.

18 TV Show-Inspired Manicures

I’m so excited! And so scared! “American Horror Story” is back with their second season tonight, and the scary shit is going down this time in an insane asylum. The only person who might be more excited than me is the blogger at Top Coat It, who gave herself this “American Horror Story”-inspired manicure, which features the blood-chilling white-nun-with-black-tears character featured in ads for the show. Gah! Hold me! And then click through this slideshow of super nerdy and elaborate TV-inspired nail art.

Over It: Gel Manicures Have Ruined My Nails

I’ll freely admit to being a manicure addict. I own over 20 bottles of polish, always carry a bottle of whatever color I’m currently wearing so I can fix chips immediately, and generally feel kind of naked without a manicure. In an effort to make my manicures last longer, I’ve been alternating regular manis with gel manicures for the last eight months or so. I loved how long the polish would go without chipping (weeks!) and that it never lost its gleaming shine; the only flaw, I thought, was that the color options were a bit limited. Well, not having the perfect orange-y red shade is the least of my problems now — the fact is, gel manicures have ruined my nails. Keep reading »

Here in New York City, we take our brunch seriously. My girls and I like to get together and do it up! My best dish is grits … my only dish is grits. But that as a nail design would probably look more like the back of my thighs than delicious creamy polenta. So, I went for the classics— a donut, bacon, eggs, and a fork to shovel it all in your pie hole. Keep reading »

At this point I should know better than to get my nails done, because every single time I leave the salon with a fresh manicure, it’s inevitably ruined by the time I get home. There are just way too many variables that contribute to their destruction — basic human functions like using keys, texting, handling money, eating snacks, and going shopping immediately post-polish can all result in a less-than-perfect paint job. It’s just one of those ridiculous first world problems that really isn’t a big deal, but it can totally feel like one at the time, especially when you’ve just forked over $13 for the service (and maybe an extra dollar for quick-dry).

At long last, a company called Nails In Motion picked up on the problem and created these fingernail covers to defend your freshly lacquered fingertips against nicks and smudges. I doubt I’ll actually invest in a set (I mean, for their $24.99 price tag I could get one and a half manicures, and they’d be rendered frustratingly useless should you forget them in your car or buried at the bottom of your purse), but there’s a strange comfort in just knowing that they exist.
