Rihanna’s new single “Take A Bow” is not a song you’re going to be dancing to — unless you’re in seventh grade and find yourself swaying back and forth awkwardly with a scrawny tween boy. But Rihanna is so lovable and lovely that Nathan and I couldn’t resist watching the song’s video together. We agree that she’s fierce but want different things from her. Me? Well, I want to be her.
Nathan: Why is she looking at her nails?
Catherine: Her nails are too long. Like old lady nails. Keep reading »
My friend Sarah and I are obsessed with neon nails. I have to give Sarah a little credit though, because she started wearing hot pink as her signature nail color way before any of us had even heard of Rihanna — back then, that girl was still singing “Hero” in Barbados. So, day-glo polish is awesome, but the problem with them is that they’re usually cheap (I bought mine at Claire’s) and therefore require you to apply three coats, and then, the polish chips off in a day. Starting in June, however, both Essie and Chanel will offer high-quality neon nails. This is wonderful news for those of us who are too old to be shopping for beauty products in a store that sells fuzzy Cheetah Girls headbands. [Chic & Untroubled]

ZOMG. Did Rihanna and Chris Brown get matching tattoos?! [TMZ] Keep reading »
What is it with us and young dudes lately? Chris Brown, all of 19-years old, has gone from being cute-as-a-button to downright smokin’ in just a few short years. If he’s not dating his “big sister” Rihanna, then will he consider us? Keep reading »
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 for new nail polish colors, we came upon Essie’s spring line and realized that each of the six colors has a name that relates to dating. The best color by far is Looking For Love (left), a lovely lavender. Part of the reason fluorescent nails seem so appealing right now is probably because spring means pastel to a lot of people, and pastels can be pretty freakin’ boring. The rest of Essie’s spring line, after the jump… Keep reading »
We’re big freaks for tights here at The Frisky — no matter the pattern, chances are Amelia, Catherine, Simcha, and Emily are rocking a pair at least three days out of the week (during the winter, of course). But what about leather (or lame and latex) leggings and tights? The leg wear has been seen on everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Frisky Patron Saint Rihanna, but our normally adventurous stems can’t quite wrap get with the Jazzercize look. Catherine says she only finds them acceptable on Rihanna, because she’s the awesomest, but finds them unwearable on regular folk. What do you think? Also, what happens if you get all sweaty in them? We’re reminded of that episode of Friends when Ross wears leather pants on a date and then can’t get out of them because he’s so sweaty, eventually dumping talcum powder all over himself while hiding in the bathroom. So funny. [My Fashion Life] Keep reading »
