I'm all about bold statements, and here's my latest: Nail art is over.
It's finished. Gone. (But if you must indulge in nail art, these classy nail designs See colors
Be honest: You totally judge a nail polish by its name.
You go in for a mani/pedi and you spend a good 10 minutes eyeing colors you like, turning over the tiny glass bottles to see what's written on the bottom. If the nail polish name is a lame pun or just doesn't fit your personality (too girlie, too silly, not enough sass) it goes right back on the shelf. See picks

When it comes to beauty treatments, it's hard to know when you should opt for a store-bought kit and when you need to splurge on a salon visit. Especially now-a-days when you can easily pick up a DIY keratin straightening or a chemical peel in a box at your local Sephora. Our verdict: Shortcuts are great, but only when they actually yield the same results as their professional alternatives. Read real reviews
I love myself a gel mani. In a perfect world, I would have the cash to get a professionally done gel manicure every two weeks -- but I don't. Which is why I'm super excited to have found a solution to support my gel addiction without going broke: an at-home gel manicure kit. See my review
There was a time when a hangnail or dry cuticles would've gone unnoticed. Now, nail issues are front and center thanks to the ubiquitous nail art trend and the popularity of polish in general. With nails becoming more of an accessory required to complete your look, nail issues have never been more important. Get solutions
Unlike most holidays where you have to play it safe (you're not going to show up to Easter mass with a 3D bunny on your thumb), Halloween is made for going all out. After all, the entire purpose of the holiday is to completely transform yourself -- including those 10 digits. See spooky nails
After so many seasons of gothic hues and polka dots, the hottest nail polish shade for fall is barely a color at all. It's nude. See polishes
Red Carpet looks are inspiring, but what really stirs up discussions in the Total Beauty office are the often-overlooked celebrity manicures. Get nail essentials
You've got the dress and now it's time to finish up those last -- but oh so important -- details before the wedding. Sure, you could wait until the big day to figure out your hair and makeup and randomly pick a bottle of polish at the nail salon, but we don't recommend doing that. Flip look book
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.
