This subtle yet punchy wash of colour on a creamy nude base, is just perfect for what’s left of our summer. The models’ hands are so smooth and groomed that it’s making me think of my favorite hand cream, and the fact that I need to pay more attention to my cuticles. Stunning. via Nail Common.

Apparently spring is here (although you wouldn’t know it by the 6 feet of snow outside my window), and with that comes thoughts of the beautiful sandals that we’re all yearning to wear. I love getting pedicures, what woman doesn’t? But during the winter I forgo the coloured polish, and just go for a clear topcoat because I’m impatient, can’t sit there watching “Step It Up 2″ over and over (yeah my nail place is great, but the movies suck), […]
Yes I’m a little Rihanna obsessed lately, but when she keeps churning out these looks how can I not be? The lesson today is all about her nails from the “Diamonds” vid. There was nary a crazy design in sight, as she tenderly dragged her nails along Chris Brown’s tat’d up forearm in angst-ridden lust.

So because I have short nails right now, and I think it’s a look that works so much better on a longer almond shaped nail (and also, I can’t do my right hand…), I used my girl Samantha’s pretty digits instead (seriously though, she could be a hand model!).We used Essie Sand Tropez as the neutral base, Witchcraft Nail Art Silver sparkle, and […]
I have really dry skin, and it’s even worse on my hands. It’s a problem compounded by constant washing up after two little boys, and the weather here in Montreal. This stuff is the only thing that works. It nourishes the skin, sinks in quickly but the moisture stays (even through washing), and it smells like a french vineyard-or what I imagine one to smell like.
I know it’s all about crazy ass nail art right now with sparkle, wild pattern and deep moody colours taking center stage for fall. These days however (ok, today) I feel like my eyes need a break, and my rings need a neutral backdrop to really be themselves (or so they tell me). Lately my favorite nail polish is Essie. The colours are gorgeous, the formula is really fluid, and the brush is small and precise, making it easier to apply. Essie polish in Case […]
