Two things have completely changed my DIY manicures. One, I’ve been using cuticle oil almost daily to keep me cuticles moisturized. All you do is brush a tiny bit of the oil on the base of your nails and massage it into your cuticles – you shouldn’t need clipping if you do this consistently (I’ve been using this one from essie).
Giorgio Armani launched his new limited edition beauty collection, Fade to Grey, on the Fall 2014 runwayicon. The products were all tested out backstage and while Armani has had a successful cosmetics line for awhile it was only recently that I started using his products. I was lured in by the gorgeous packaging.
Get these $15 babies now!icon Nails Inc. has just released two new collections, and they’re the most exciting polish happenings announced for fall by far. I had a chance to preview both the brand’s Nailkale and Alexa Chung lines and sure they may be a bit gimmicky but the colors and formulation quality are awesome.
NARS has been doing the nails of Phillip Lim’s NYFW models for the last 14 seasons, so this collaboration is no mere whim but rather the result of a long and beautiful partnership.
I’m not really one for nail art. To me, a simple manicure is generally the chicest. When I saw Jin Soon Choi’s tulip designs, though, I was impressed. Maybe it was because I was desperate for spring or that red is one of my favorite colors (it brings you luck!), but in reality, what’s so great about this nail art is that it’s subtle.
