I'm Surprisingly Inspired by Barbra Streisand's (New) Nails -- See How I Plan to Copy Them I'm Surprisingly Inspired by Barbra Streisand's (New) Nails -- See How I Plan to Copy Them

When I think "Barbra Streisand," an image of her "Funny Girl" persona pops to mind. That voice, Nicky Arnstein and those nails! Babs has, of course, long been known for her signature, looong, slightly tapered fingernails. (Which, thanks to my penchant for things trivial I happen to know that she initially grew to avoid having to get a job as a secretary -- typing and nails don't mesh.)So, imagine…

My Quick-Dry Nail Tricks and "Are They Dry Yet?" Test My Quick-Dry Nail Tricks and "Are They Dry Yet?" Test

How often do you smudge your nails before the polish dries? I'd guesstimate that eight out of every 10 times I leave the salon, I ding at least one -- even if I logged the requisite time in front of the fan or under the UV light. (Does that thing even work?) And, when I do them myself, I ruin them pretty much every single bleeping time.But, that was B.A. Before Ashley. She's my sister-in-law and…

Nail Art You Can Do At Home (Just Employ a Friend Like I Did) Nail Art You Can Do At Home (Just Employ a Friend Like I Did)

Confession: I was too exhausted and lazy to mimic a celeb's hairstyle today (Fridays are supposed to be casual and laid back, right?) so I don't have a new picture to show you. I promise to catch up on my challenge next week. To fill the void, I thought I'd show off my newly polished fingernails. Aren't they nice? I've noticed that all of the teeny bopper celebs have been sporting nail art…

At the Nail Salon: What Not to Let Your Manicurist Do At the Nail Salon: What <i>Not</i> to Let Your Manicurist Do

Last night I got a pedicure with my friend Sharon. And while it started off as a nice, relaxing evening, it came to an awkward, screeching halt when Sharon suddenly scolded the manicurist. Why? The woman tried to put her (wet) feet on the foot bar without laying down a paper towel first, which completely grossed out Sharon (can you say germaphobe?). Now, I know you've all heard the horror stories…
