I’ve been a fan of Sinful Colors nail polish for a long time, for multiple reasons: one being the fact that it only costs $2 a bottle, another being that it is sold near the beauty counter at Walgreens, which means I buy like three bottles of it per week. Last night I layered SC’s bright blue “Most Sinful” polish under a topcoat of the glittery “Hottie” and was delighted to find it created a sort of galaxy print effect. I shared a pic of my surprise space mani on our Instagram (by the way, are you following us on Instagram? You totally should be! We’re @thefrisky), but I thought it was also finally time to give my favorite cheapie nail polish brand a proper review.

Why draw the line at just wearing nail polish on your fingers and toes when you can broadcast your lacquer love on your phone, too? If nail polish is really, really your thing (sup, Megan?), you can snag one of these new iPhone cases straight from none other than the source of ambrosia itself, OPI — the polish professionals are launching six cases, available for versions 4, 4S, and 5, featuring signature shades I’m Not Really a Waitress, Big Apple Red, You Don’t Know Jacques, Dating a Royal, Pink Flamenco, and Need Sunglasses? Each case comes accompanied by a matching mini bottle of OPI Nail Lacquer, which almost redeems the $40 price tag. I don’t know if I would actually walk around sporting a phone case with a branded bottle of nail polish on it, but those polish splatters are another story — very cool. [BellaSugar]

The 16 Raunchiest Nail Polish Color Names Of All Time

Nail polish names have always been a source of the giggles — “You Don’t Know Jacques”? “Friar, Friar, Pants On Fire”? “Don’t Socra-Tease Me”?! So ridiculous, yet genius, there’s even a blog devoted to the dumbest nail polish names ever. But those names pale in comparison to some of the shades I found with names so raunchy (“Pounded on the Kitchen Table”? Really?!) I almost blushed. Check out 16 of the raunchiest and overtly sexual nail polish names above…

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: “Girls” Knit Nails

I’m obsessed with “Girls” and of course, the euphonious line of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes inspired by them! Jessa, a color that can’t decide if it wants to be red or brown, or both. Marni, a polite pink that seems dainty but is actually quite strong. Shoshanna, a girlie lavender with a look-at-me streak of sparkle. And Hannah, a color unlike anything else out there. It’s a griege that desperately wants to be a neutral, but is too green to be anything but charmingly weird.

I wove the colors, like the character’s lives, into a nail art knit design for one of my fav real life New York girl, Marissa Stuart. Special thanks to her for hand modeling!

Get this look after the jump!

The Most Outrageous Nails At New York Fashion Week Fall 2013

If I had to choose one word to describe the outrageous nails seen backstage at New York Fashion Week, it would have to be frightening. Sure there were the typical dark and moody manicures painted in fall colors like burgundy, green and black. However, the dagger-like digits models sported at most of the shows looked like they came straight out of a scary movie.

CND co-founder Jan Arnold took this theme to the extreme at The Blonds with nail art inspired by classic horror flicks like “The Shining” and “Psycho” — using mini Jack Nicholson and Janet Leigh screaming face prints. Miss Pop, a Manhattan-based nail artist, was tapped to create a spooky set of black and white ombre nails at Katie Gallagher. And even Kate Spade’s colorful fall collection got a terrifying touch with pyramid studded claws. Read more…
