Hard Candy Nail Polish Set To Make Comeback

Remember Hard Candy? It was the nail polish brand of the late ’90s, successfully marketing funky nail colors like green, silver and frosty blue. The must-have brand was a middle and high school status marker—if you wore Hard Candy (or better yet, had a collection of bottles) you told the world that you cared enough…

Miley Cyrus & Max Azria For Walmart Is A Lotta ‘Meh’

Good thing we didn’t expect much. Pop star Miley Cyrus teamed up with Max Azria — designed for BCBG, Herve Leger, and Max Azria — to design a line for Walmart and the results are epically mall worthy. Shrunken vests? Check!

Wal-Mart: Always Low Prices, Finally An Inkling Of Human Decency

Last week we wrote about Wal-Mart employee Debbie Shank, who was struck by a truck and suffered severe brain damage and whose medical expenses were covered by her Wal-Mart insurance. The chain sued for reimbursement of $400,000+ after Shank won a settlement against the truck company which was responsible for her accident. Today the mega-chai…

Yet Another Reason Why We Shop At Target

Target is awesome, and not just because they have cheap, cute clothes designed by normally-out-of-our-price-range big names like Jovovich-Hawk and Luella Bartley.
