In the midst of this salon crackdown and expose in NYC, there's no better time to DIY your nails like the best in the biz. You definitely don't need to go to a manicurist who is underpaid and overworked to get on trend with the colorful standout from the spring fashion shows: nail art. Gone are the days when a nude polish dominated the runways and streets as a mainstay for the modern, professional woman. Read More

Remember a little while back when I talked about Katy Perry’s slammin’ Daria-inspired nails? And how jealous I was of her nail art in general? (Let's be real--all of us would do some despicable things for access to her manicurists.)
Well, she’s upped the ante this week with a freaking PRO-BAMA MANI for her debut performance for Mr. President, complete with tiny portraits of the commander-in-chief himself. Katy ain’t playing when it comes to this election, people!

I’ve been a nail biter since I was a wee lass, so getting my nails done has always been out of the question. Plus, my nails are so small that I would probably have a panic attack trying to recreate the super-cute “Sweet Strawberry” manicure design featured in our current issue. Luckily, there’s a fantastic solution for fussy nail-biters like me - glue-on nails!
