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.

Kelly Osbourne Is “Sorry” For That $250K Manicure She Got, Guys

But of course she’s not, though, because this “apology” is her way of telling the world that she rocked a quarter-of-a-million-dollar f-cking nail polish color to Sunday’s Emmys, if you didn’t already hear. And why would she go ahead and tell us this? Well duh. Because no one noticed—LAST WEEK—to begin with. Why endure the extravagance of a $250k manicure if you can’t brag about it to the world? I mean, honestly. ‘Til today (or maybe yesterday, when Kelly announced that she was sorry on Twitter), did you even know that Kelly’s manicure was anything more than a regular old OPI-looking sparkly black? Because I didn’t, and it was. Word on the street is that Kelly’s manicure was actually $250k worth of black diamonds, which worked out to be just about 5 carats. See her tweets here…

Nail art has been around for a long while, but only in the past year or so has it evolved from something you were more likely to see on your cool artsy friend into a ubiquitous trend spotted on everyone from Zooey Deschanel to Beyoncé. The $50 Minx manicure made popular by Katy Perry is more than we’d generally be willing to spend on something so temporary (and, um, tiny), but on the off chance you have $250,000 you’re looking to be really careless with, and you’ve already ruled out eating it, snorting things with it, and donating to the poor (!), why not make like Kelly Osbourne at the Emmys and cash in on the Azature black diamond manicure? (Yes, the same one that drove Winona to pack up her things and take off for Jupiter. We’ll never forgive you for that, Azature.) What, like that’s not a completely reasonable and responsible way to spend your money? Keep reading »

Our Top 10 Nail Polish Picks For Fall

With the promise of a new season comes the necessity to change things up, from our hair to our wardrobes to our go-to nail colors. It’s time to break up with our summer brights — so long, neon, it was fun while it lasted — and move on to more subdued shades. Luckily, our favorite nail polish brands are well-acquainted with the predicament we’re in right now, and they’ve come to the rescue with brand-new collections of sultry hues that can be worn well through the winter, too. (Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our old favorites, either.) For best results, pair with a cashmere sweater (when the time comes — don’t rush it!) and some sweet motorcycle boots. Unless you’ve got a fresh pedicure, that is — don’t worry, we won’t judge you for wearing sandals while you still can. Keep reading »

Get The Look: Michelle Obama’s Awesome Blueish-Grey Nail Polish

And on a completely shallow note, Michelle Obama looked amazing in a Tracy Reese dress at last night’s Democratic National Convention — but it was her nail polish that caught my eye. Upon closer inspection — I couldn’t sleep, okay? — the polish appears to be a blue-ish grey color, possibly in tribute to the Democratic Party, but more likely just further proof that she’s naturally fierce in the style department. I’m not sure what brand/color she was wearing, but I found a few similar shades — check ‘em out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: 7 Awesome Back-To-School Nail Art Designs

The first day of school is 10 percent who your new teachers are, 90 percent your outfit. Ok, maybe 10 percent is who that new hottie is, but that can just factor right back into your outfit because you want him to notice you, obvs. And nail art is just another way to show off your awesome sauce! So, I’ve put together this slideshow of some of my fave looks from some super talented nail artists to inspire you to do up your digits for your big first day!

Here’s my back to school cool look — saddle shoes! My mom got me a fresh pair of these kicks every year for elementary school. Instead of being on my feet, this time around, I put them on Kiki T’s hands. Special thanks to the best hand model/astrologist in the world! I only wish we went to the same school back in the day….
