Your next manicure may not happen at the nail salon on the corner. It could be as close as the conference room near the corner office. That's because the Manicube could be headed to your workspace. read more
Up until now, I've avoided nail art almost as well as Miley Cyrus avoids putting her tongue in her mouth. But my fierce loyalty to my at-home gel manicure kit had me in a bit of a nail rut. For one, I was getting bored by the same colors. And while the lengthy process is great for catching up on episodes of "The Mindy Project," I was tired of spending my evenings glued to my sofa for the sake of pretty nails. Enter Revlon by Marchesa's 3-D Jewel Appliqués, an eight-piece collection of couture gown inspired artwork -- perfect for those who crave easy and elegant nails. read more
Yup, she's at it again. After freaking people out with a $250,000 manicure, Kelly Osbourne got everyone's panties in a twist with a $1 million mani. She wore the quarter mil Azature mani to the Emmy's last year, but sported Azature's million dollar White Diamond polish more recently (she's seen here with a friend, showing it off). The bottle contains 98 carats worth of crushed diamonds in it. read more
For OPI's collaboration with Gwen Stefani, Executive VP/Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann took inspiration from the 2013 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala (a.k.a. the "Met Gala") whose theme was "Punk: Chaos to Couture" -- she wanted to emphasize the influence that music has on fashion. "With her expertise as a singer, songwriter and designer, who better to collaborate with than Gwen Stefani?" Weiss-Fishmann asked. "Known for her trademark red lips, bold eye makeup and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style." read more
Paris Fashion Week wrapped last week, and the models at Louis Vuitton wore Marc Jacobs Nail Lacquer in Midnight in Paris. The color is perfect for fall, but you'll have to wait a full year to get it. Source: marcjacobsbeauty.com read more
She may be causing a stir with her new, neon blue hair (which coincides with the release of her new song "Neon Lights"), but, for the last year, year and a half, it's been Demi Lovato's nails that have created quite the commotion in the Twitterverse. And, why not? They've been masterfully done for nearly every red carpet appearance and public event by nail innovators, The New Black. read more
Over the weekend I attempted a DIY deep red manicure (Sadly, I do not recommend trying this at home). Despite spending an hour in the hunched-over position, meticulously applying polish, it took me three or more swipes to cover each nail, which left my manicure a thick and goopy mess. Which brings me to my next gripe: how tough it is to remove dark red polish. It's like trying to conceal blood at a crime scene (or so I assume from watching Dexter). Fast forward to today, when I find out that high-end designer Giorgio Armani is jumping on the beauty line bandwagon with a nail polish collection that makes a lot of promises -- namely that the custom-made brush (designed in the oh-so-chic Armani laboratories) can coat an entire nail in just one stroke. read more
If you ever thought your nails were unimportant or if you've been neglecting your hands, now is the time to make them a priority. Just like your skin, they can dry out, peel, break, and become infected. Manicures and pedicures are cosmetic procedures that can help you keep your hands and feet healthy by grooming, trimming, buffing, and painting your nails, as well as managing calluses.
Taking Care of Your Nails
Make an effort to take good care of your nails, and you will be thrilled by the way they complement your own personal style. One easy way to keep them healthy is to drink lots of water. By keeping your body hydrated every day, you'll keep them hydrated, as well. Also, touch up your manicure on a daily basis to prevent chips and cracks and avoid using your nails as tools. This means no using them to pry things open, scrape things off, etc.
Other natural ways to keep your nails healthy include drinking fresh carrot juice daily, making sure that you keep them clean and moisturized, and making sure that your nail salon has hygienic practices.
Browse Total Beauty's nail care section to find other ways to keep your hands and feet looking their best. Our beauty experts have plenty of tips and tricks that are easy to employ.
