Love Lace? Get the Look on Your Nails!

I’m constantly on the hunt for easy and cute nail art ideas. Keyword being easy. I honestly can’t stand having a solid-colored manicure because I get bored of it in less than a day and everyone else has the same thing. Nail art allows your personality to shine through in a different way than the obvious hair and style choices. Plus, everyone will be jealous of your pretty nails and will never believe you did them yourself! (more…)

Best Celebrity Blogs! No, Perez Hilton Doesn’t Make the List.

I’m an avid blog reader. There are a few blogs I check on every day, but mostly I just click around from the different links they post and see what’s out there. Believe it or not there are a few really good blogs run and/or created by well-known celebrities. I love reading about celebrities and looking at gossip sites (no shame!) but it’s interesting to see a completely different, and more personal, side to them through their blogs.

In my opinion, these are a handful of the best blogs created/run by celebrities. (more…)

Summer-Ready Hairstyles You Have to Try!

The weather is starting to heat up outside which only means one thing: frizz. I tend to think my hair is naturally frizzy and always looking like a mess, so summertime makes it worse.

Now that frizzy-hair weather is about to be in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about hairstyles that are easy, quick and versatile. Here are three of my favorite summer-ready hairstyles every girl needs to try! (more…)

Emerald City: Behind the Scenes Look

“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony,” is the first quote you’ll read off Pantone’s homepage regarding the 2013 color of the year: Emerald.

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum. As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. (more…)

Complete Your St. Patrick’s Day Ensemble with Your Nails!

I can’t think of another holiday (besides Halloween) where people go all out dressing up for the occasion. Whenever I hear people talking about St. Patrick’s Day, images of green, glitter, gold and beer enter my mind. I don’t personally partake in the festivities that surround this holiday, but one person in my family does, and that would be my sister.

She goes on a hunt to find the perfect outfit weeks before St. Patrick’s Day. Side-note: I find this funny because we don’t have a drop of Irish blood in our family. I’m not sure why it’s a holiday where people decide to dress up, but if it makes you happy then go for it! If you’re going all out dressing up in a green-colored, cute and girly outfit then you can’t forget to paint your nails accordingly. Nothing would ruin your outfit more (besides spilling beer all over yourself) if your nails were clashing with this festive day.

Get some nail inspiration from the pictures below and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day! (more…)

Transform Your Nails into Liquid Gold!

I’m always looking for new ways to paint my nails since I get really bored having one solid color. I’ve tried the water marbling technique, which is super cool and looks awesome if you do it correctly but it’s kind of messy and time consuming.

After searching YouTube, I came across this short and simple tutorial by Pixie Polish on how to marble your nails using a needle (you can also use a safety pin or toothpick). Let me just say, I would love to hire the extremely talented girl behind this tutorial because I took a look at her other videos…oh my gosh. If you have the art skills, which unfortunately I don’t, I suggest checking out the rest of her tutorials for amazing, envy-worthy nails!

The cool thing about this technique is that you can use any color combination you can think of. I am definitely going to try this over the weekend. It would look really pretty with bright colors for summer. The possibilities are endless!

Would you try this easy, no-water marbling technique?
