You were worried, weren’t you, that your dog was going to completely throw off your outfit. Well, never fea, we’ve got a solution! Dog nail polish is now a thing, so matching your purse to your pooch won’t be a problem again. Developed by the pet grooming company Warren London, the Pawdicure Polish Pens come in an array of colors and are water-based and non-toxic to pets. Depending on how docile your dog is–and how off the rails your own personal mental health is–you can even do crazy nail designs. Okay, ‘fess up — who’s into this? [$8.95, Warren London]
Summertime is all about the colors on your nails and, girl, have I got the color for you: Anardana, from the Thakoon for NARS collaboration. Gorgeous, right? This color is professional enough for work, sexy enough for a night of dancing under the stars, and girly enough for a picnic in the park. But if this rich pink hue doesn’t do it for you, Thakoon for NARS has got five other colors evoking an Indian spice market. I think I’m in love. [$18, NarsCosmetics.com]

I’m not going to lie: I get a manicure once a week. It’s a luxury, yes, but for me it’s a necessary one that’s worth the $13 and twenty minutes of dry time. You see, I err on the side of, ahem, nonchalant when it comes to my “look” — I think Kate Moss, you see Courtney Love — so a glossy coat of fresh lacquer is often one of the few things that make my style cohesive. I may not have washed my hair in three days, my lipstick may be smeared and faded, my skirt may be on sideways, but look closely and you will see I’m not just any vagabond. I’m a vagabond with a manicure. It’s very Derelicte, my friends. Keep reading »
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 a “Mad 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.

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]
