Get the Look: Pointy Nails

I recently came across this ad for a Miami-based jewelry store and couldn’t take my eyes off the female model’s pointy nails. We’ve seen Fergie, Beyonce, Adele, Rihanna, and a handful of other stars perfect this shape, which works great if you’re trying to elongate your fingers.

Chanel Superstition Fall 2013 Collection

Chanel Superstition Fall 2013 Collection: Lady Luck

Chanel seemed like the kind of Snob who made her own luck in life, but when it came down to it, she was superstitious. The icon kept tons of good luck charms around her, and I have a feeling these products will be ours this fall. After all, looking good makes you feel good, and when you feel good, you do well, right?

American Beauty Glossybox Featuring Dallas Shaw

American Beauty Glossybox Featuring Dallas Shaw

I love scouring the beauty counter at Neiman’s, but it’s also nice when someone else does the work. That’s what Glossybox is all about. Each month, they curate a collection of five to six travel-sized products, and have it sent right to your door! Pretty sweet deal, huh?

Ciate Chalkboard Manicure

I haven’t gotten on the nail art bandwagon yet. I’m still all about my solid glossy polishes, but I have to say…. Ciate’s Chalkboard Manicure Set ($25- $40 value) looks like fun! Basically you apply a base coat, then two coats of matte black polish (aka your chalkboard), let the polish dry (15 minutes – … Continue reading Ciate Chalkboard Manicure

Solar Oil Skin & Nail Conditioner: Soft Cuticles, Strong Nails

My cuticles and I are locked in a vicious cycle of a battle – they dry out, I pick at them, they get worse, I pick more…I think you see where I’m going here. My weekly manicure is only a temporary reprieve. I’ve tried out a lot of nice cuticle oils, and I’ll tell you … Continue reading Solar Oil Skin & Nail Conditioner: Soft Cuticles, Strong Nails

essie 2013 Neon Collection

We can thank essie for neons being popular more or less steadily for the last four or five years. They were the first and they’re still the best when it comes to neons. However because their first neon collection included such true orange, yellow, pink and purple neons it has been hard to follow-up with … Continue reading essie 2013 Neon Collection

Trend Alert: Punk Nail Art

No one would accuse punk style of seeming very put-together, which makes the punk nail art inherently confusing. In the ‘80s, it was all about chipped, black nails. Of course no one dared try that at the MET Gala (she would have been the truest punk there). It was all about fancy gowns, big jewels, … Continue reading Trend Alert: Punk Nail Art
