The Prettiest Pastel Nail Polishes To Grab Before Spring Hits

Slowly but surely, pastels are starting to feel more and more seasonally appropriate. Even if you're layering a lavender short-sleeve shirt under a sweater and a heavy black puffer coat to walk outside, there's something cheerful about adding those touches of soft, spring-y shades into a still-winter wardrobe. Of course, the simplest and cheapest, most non-committal way to start easing into pastels while Mother Nature is still catching up is to paint them on your nails.If your collection of pas...

How To Stop Your Cuticles From Peeling, According To Nail Pros

"I absolutely love my hangnails," said no one ever. The hanging skin — that is just so satisfying to yank on — can be super annoying and extremely painful. But peeling, biting, ripping, and picking at them isn’t the solution. In fact, fiddling with your hangnails can create more problems around your cuticles, like infection and cuts (yikes).But there is a correct way to deal with hangnails when they attack, and it has nothing to do with using your teeth. Refinery29 consulted top manicurists to ...

The Chip-Proof Nail Polish You'll Want To Wear All Spring

Some might say that the worst kind of betrayal is one from a partner: He cheated, she lied, they ghosted. For me, the greatest dagger to the heart is when a brand-new manicure chips within the first 24 hours. (But I'm also single... )Call me melodramatic, but shelling out for a few coats of polish that inevitably crack or crease no less than one day later puts me in a state of minor emotional anguish. And unlike visible bra straps or frayed jeans, this is the kind of stylistic imperfection I ju...

Marc Jacobs Just Made Grown-Out Manicures a New Beauty Trend

Image Source: Shana Trajanoska for Marc Jacobs Beauty Manicures are such a beloved but fleeting joy. If you get regular polish, it rarely lasts beyond one week without showing growth (or worse, getting chipped). Even if you opt for gel, it's only a matter of time before that sliver of naked nail between your cuticle and the polish shows. Is it hideous? No. A little off-putting? Yes. But who really has time to be ultra consistent with doing their nails? Thank goodness we've got some good news fro...

How the Heck to Get Yellow Stains Off Your Nails - and Why It Can Be Dangerous

The next time you go #makeupfree, consider giving your nails a polish time-out as well. Your obsession with getting gel nail-art looks at the salon or rocking a vampy lacquer look is great for the 'gram, but it also may be compromising the health of your nails. For the most part, wearing nail polish is safe - especially if you pick a nontoxic, five-free formula. But if you notice your tips looking yellow, you need a break. Jin Soon Choi - a nail pro, a salon owner, and the creator of one of our...

Inspiring Nail Art You Need To Try This Fall

The days when manicures were limited to what you could paint with lacquer are over. Today, an entire gamut of textures and patterns have become possible, with wraps, press nails, and gel polishes destroying all limits to creativity. Even artificial nails have been given an upgrade. No longer unnaturally thick or long, today’s false nails won’t announce their artificiality to everyone who bothers to look. For example, Dashing Diva has released some gorgeous press on nails that will look exquisit...

What the Half-Moon Shape on Your Nails Says About Your Health

We know you love to polish your tips, but when you finally remove the lacquer or gel, take a closer look at your bare nails. There, you'll find a white half-moon shape that starts at your nail beds. This is called the lunula. And it's more than just a built-in design element - it actually says a lot about your health. To get to the bottom of the case, we chatted with celebrity manicurist, Fashion Week pro, and brand owner Jin Soon Choi. POPSUGAR: What is the lunula part of the nail? Jin Soon C...

This Unexpected Nail Look Is the Manicure Trend Everyone Will Be Wearing Next Fall

Just when you thought nail art might be waning, New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 has brought it back with a vengeance. We're only halfway through Fashion Week, and already we've seen nails featuring geometric shapes, negative space, and layered colors. Perhaps one of our favorite looks so far is the pointer finger accent nail designed by Jin Soon for Tibi. At the show, models rocked a bright color on just the pointer finger nail. To recap: the ring finger has traditionally been the accent finger...

These Are The Nail Color Trends NYC Girls Are Wearing Right Now

New Yorkers may have the reputation of wearing all black, all the time (though everyone we know is a master print-mixer). But even those who think gray is too loud know there's a time and place for a dose of color — and that's always, and on nails and toes.The city also happens to be, oh, 10 steps ahead of the trends, so who better to ask which manicure shades will be blowing up in 2017 than the women who run the most in-demand salons?

Why Eating Jell-O Should Be Part of Every Woman's Nail Care Regimen

Though many women are obsessed with their nails, we sure put them through some major abuse. Biting, using them as tools, and peeling off our gel manicures are just a few of the horrible habits we'll admit to. Manicurists backstage at New York Fashion Week paint dozens of talons per show and only have a few minutes to make them look gorgeous. To make their jobs even more challenging, models are hopping from runway to runway. This means claws are getting cleaned, shaped, and painted, then doused...

"Male Polish" Is the New Bro Beauty Trend Surging on Instagram

Men dabbling with manicures is hardly a new concept. Plenty of dudes have long enjoyed the relaxing experience (and tidy cuticles) of the classic treatment. But it seems that you might have to start fighting some guys at the salon for your favorite bottle of lacquer. According to W Magazine, designer Marc Jacobs is responsible for popularizing #MalePolish. In recent months, he has been taking to his Instagram account to post selfies featuring the hashtag, which drew attention to his neatly pain...

Where Cool Girls Go To Find The Best New Beauty Swag

Some people only shop for beauty products in actual stores, and we totally understand why. Especially on the makeup front, it helps to swatch, swipe, and test out products before forking over the cash to invest in them. Still, we can't help but be on #TeamInternet, especially when sites like Net-A-Porter have such standout beauty selections (and a return service that will pick up the product from your house completely free, by the way).This retailer's collection is leading the pack in co...

Mind Your Manners At The Nail Salon

The mani-pedi experience is supposed to be an enjoyable one. Whether you're flying solo or rolling deep, your only goal is to be taken care of and emerge just a bit more put-together and relaxed. But, because the whole thing involves the action of handing over money in exchange for being touched by a virtual stranger, it can be fraught with uncomfortable moments — both for you and your technician.Of course, you expect a certain level of professionalism and respect from nail technicians, which yo...

Luck Will Be at Your Fingertips Thanks to This Chic Shamrock Nail Art DIY

As someone with Irish heritage, I look forward to celebrating St. Patrick's Day with my family and friends every year. (It's an excuse to drink beer and eat massive quantities of potatoes. . . . What's not to like?) However, I generally pass on painting my nails for the holiday. I love green lacquer, but I've always felt that most shamrock or pot-of-gold designs are a little too cheesy to rock for more than 24 hours. This year, however, I must have the luck of the Irish on my side. In honor of S...
