They've found the formula that works for them without fail, which means efficient, predictable, no surprises getting ready time.
The Barbie mania put us, perhaps briefly, and perhaps not, in a world within our world, one where childhood nostalgia intertwines with a sophisticated palette of a grown woman. Even Google turns all pink when you search for "Barbie movie" — give it a try, it's really cute. The allure of Barbie takes on a new form via our new experience with her (and of her — one that transcends generations yet maintains a touch of grown-up elegance. Barbie nails have been around steadily over the years, but they are now taking up more room. You can find intricate bows, dainty pearls, and even miniature recreations of Barbie's outfits, 3D or painted. Pink is still the CEO of colors used and softer pinks at that. Here, fuchsia will just not make the cut.

The Little Mermaid may have the internet on fire right now, but water is just as powerful an element. Inspired by the serenity, movement, and colors of the sea (world), we got hooked, so to speak, on the idea of watercolor effects on nails.
Cool nails are both fashion and beauty; on top of that, they make one quite versatile canvas for self-expression. We here continue to be amazed by the creations these nail artists come up with, and lately, multicolor nail designs have been coming up in many different forms, but with a common vibe — wearable, customizable, and tasteful-looking nail designs for people of diverse tastes. This takes multicolor nails away from the teenage association we all have with them, and puts them right up there with the grown-ups (just look at how sophisticated this nail design is).
It may be official Self-Care Day today, but by now, we all know the importance of having those regularly, regardless of how wide or narrow the intervals are between them. Once again, we are facing the importance of consistency and the big power within

The glorious optimism of spring is a common theme in nail salons, and it's not that hard to see why — the sun is out, we feast our eyes daily on budding flowers, lush leaves, butterflies and first red fruits of the season; so much beauty and life coming up at once, everywhere.
Following dry winter months, our nails and cuticles need some sprucing up, even if we've been pretty diligent with hand and nail care, and especially if we haven't. Quick solutions? Yes, there are!

Transitional care, i.e. skin and hair care in between seasons, may get a little frustrating from time to time: we could feel like we have just gotten used to a new routine, finally found and provided what our skin needs, and then it starts to feel like it's time to re-adjust, all too quickly. Luckily, plum oil could be that "just right" transitional partner to us.
Hey, no one said we're low maintenance. All joking aside, though, we did want to compile a list of products we would need should we find ourselves: 1) in an unexpected, getting-ready-to-go-out disaster, or in a less dramatic, but panic-provoking nonetheless, issue of being late; and 2) having a long, late night. The list includes all of these saviors, and then some — and all are gloriously pink!
We have all experienced the pain of cold weather wreaking havoc on our hands, making our skin endlessly thirsty and hungry, our cuticles in need of grooming more often, and our nails...oh, the brittleness... All that can change, luckily, and sometimes within minutes, seconds even!

One of the no-skipping steps when it comes to at-home manicure or pedicure is a top coat. The final polish layer on lacquered nails, the purpose of the top coat is to ensure that the color underneath is sealed and, if the product is good, it will give the color and nails that lasting sheen we so often associate with salon-done nails. There is more to the top coat that the gloss, though; having sealed the color, it prevents premature chipping, fading and peeling. In other words, it allows us to wear our chosen nail polish for longer than one or two days, while keeping it looking fresh thus extending its wear.
If you've been following the topic of beauty trends for 2023, it couldn't have gotten past you that velvet nails are about to get bigger — as in, they started trending now, but next year will really see them shine. This nail coloring technique is all about creating an optical illusion of the look and feel of velvet fabric on the nails. This is achieved either through metallic nail polishes/gels for shiny velvet look (think cat eye mani), or through matte-finished, textured nails.
Some of us maaaay still be processing 2019, but nevertheless, 2023 is just around the corner. Lucky for us, all the beauty trends for 2023 bring in a lot of playfullness, sensory experience, mindfulness and optimism — with the primary focus on enhancing and emphasizing that which we do have, not so much altering it (significantly).
