Must Haves: 9 Not-Too-Frilly Pastel Pieces

Pastel colors are sooooo dreamy — they’re all soft and washed-out and Easter egg-y, and feminine without the outright girlishness of, say, hot pink.

Paint Your Nails Pastel Blue While You Can

Makeup company Hard Candy, first known as a purveyor of pastel blue nail polish, will limit its offerings to gift sets starting next season. If you were a huge fan of their jelly rings back in middle school but thought the polish itself was overpriced when it debuted in the ’90s (LA store Fred Segal…

Crave: Spring Nails

Winter is officially over, meaning you might want to abandon that super dark nail polish, unless it’s your signature look or you’re Ashlee Simpson. We’ve really been liking Rihanna’s fluorescent nails at the Grammys and in her ad for H&M. (I’m totally copying her by wearing neon pink right now.) When we were looking around…
