Upgrade Your French Mani in 2019 With These 50+ Nail Art Ideas

Remember when you got your first french manicure? It was a box of press-on nails at the drugstore that fell off one by one.

Cardi B's Music Video Nails Are So Hot, You'll Need Sunglasses to Look at Them

Cardi B may be known for her extralong nails almost as much as she's known for her music. The rapper can always be seen in videos and on the red carpet switching up her hair and flaunting a sexy manicure almost as long as her fingers, and she credits her bedazzled tips to Jenny Bui of Nails on 7th. Cardi B just released a preview of the look she wears in her "Money" music video, and it is covered in gold.

Princess Eugenie Doesn't Abide by This 1 Royal Beauty Rule, and We Bet You've Never Noticed

Princess Eugenie is certainly no stranger to the list of protocol that comes with being born into the British royal family, and beauty is no exception. Although there are no hard "rules" about how they can wear their hair and makeup, certain etiquette is taken into consideration. (Take Meghan Markle's messy bun for example: there is no rule saying she isn't allowed to wear the hairstyle, but you rarely see other royals doing so, and you'll never see this style for formal occasions.) But since P...

The '00s Called to Let You Know That French Nails Are Back in Style

Bon Qui Qui had her nail art, but suburban housewives? They had the french manicure. Back in the early aughts, everyone who was anyone walked around with white-tipped nails - acrylics optional, but not required - until all of a sudden . . . they didn't. A few years later and the look was all but swept under the rug, dismissed for the next decade by many as "too cheesy." Then suddenly, inexplicably, french nails traveled in time to 2018, showing up in blockbuster movies, red carpets, and even mus...

There's Ralphie's broken glasses, his "deranged" bunny pajamas, Randy's extremely bundled-up snowsuit, the lifebuoy soap, the "oh, fudge quote," and, of course, the iconic leg lamp.

The Tortoiseshell Trend Just Found Its Way to Your Nails, and You Need Them ASAP

Tortoiseshell is a likely color pattern for glasses, jewelry, and cats. But like all great things, it's made its way to the beauty world. First, there was tortoiseshell hair, a subtle brunette color with honey, caramel, and copper hues. Now, and perhaps even better, the pattern has made its way onto nails - and we didn't think a manicure could look so chic. Great for beginners, this technique involves a lot of blobbing - perfection isn't necessary - of some autumnal brown and black shades. But ...
