Even and especially after you’ve just gotten your nails did. So we present,… READ MORE »

I’m slightly baffled as to why Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond Chandler would take to Facebook, of all places, for input on changes to the Army grooming standards. Maybe he thought his Facebook pals were the best people to solicit advice on the Army’s consideration of a ban on French manicures, earrings and ponytails? READ MORE »

Every fall, as the temperature drops, my cuticles begin to look cracked, ragged, and just plain dreadful. I’ve tried a few different products, but nothing has worked as well as Vitamins A+D Ointment. Yes, an ointment that has been used for ages to treat diaper rash is also great at moisturizing cuticles. Hey, chafed skin… READ MORE »

Cheese puff celebs like Justin Bieber introduce their own nail polish lines.
