But salon manicures are pricey and time consuming and when I paint my nails at home, I always smudge them. Enter semi-cured gel nails.

I’m obsessed with the return of the ’90s, and by ’90s, I mean 1890s. The necklace is...
Living Out Loud Photo: Emil Costrut Big bows, heart-shaped keyholes, and lots and lots of ruffles are a few of the hallmarks of Romanian designer Patricia Luiza Blaj and her ultra-femme line Loud Bodies.

  Fashion’s hottest 2022 trends are strutting in, and they are revolutionizing the modern wardrobe. More than a fleeting style rush, these trends not only look good — they do good.
