3 Easy Ways You Can Remove Your Gel Manicure at Home

There are many reasons to love a gel manicure, but a few in particular stand out. For starters, you really can't beat the fact that they require little to no drying time, meaning that you don't have to spend hours after your nail salon visit being too afraid to use your hands out of fear that you'll ruin that glossy finish. Still, gel manicures can only last for so long, so when life gets hectic, it can be hard to find time to squeeze in a removal appointment before you resort to just peeling th...

Dua Lipa's Funky Checkerboard Nail Art Is Here to Blow Our Minds

Back in 2017, Dua Lipa set new rules for ending toxic relationships. Now, she's doing it again, but with her nail art. When it comes to red carpet nail art looks, most celebrities match their nail polish to their ensemble or makeup, but not Lipa - at least, not at the 2020 Grammys.
