How To Get Rid of Stained Nails
Posted on Thursday, October 31st, 2013
Have you ever removed your lacquer only to find that your new favorite color just stained your nails? This is common when using highly pigmented shades like deep reds, greens, blues, and oranges. Always using a base coat before applying your color will help prevent pigment from embedding itself in your natural nails. But, what if the staining has already occurred? No need to panic, just make a quick trip to your local beauty supply store and pick up these simple, stain-fighting supplies. YOU’LL NEED: • 220-grit Nail File • Buffing Block • Cuticle Stick (also sometimes called an orangewood stick)

Back To School Style: Nailed
Posted on Friday, August 16th, 2013
With Labor Day just around the corner, it’s time for many of us to hang our bathing suits out to dry one last time, swap out our beach bag for a backpack, and hit the hallways… and the books… but more importantly the hallways (it’s basically a runway, people. Come on!). A new school year is always a chance to declare your personal style (at least for the semester) and you know as well as we do that no look is complete without a mani to match—or mismatch, cuz we are totally into that too!
