Fish pedicures, in case you didn’t know, are where you soak your feet in water filled with little, live fish that help to exfoliate your skin and eat away at any dead skin you may have. These are becoming more and more popular and have been featured on many reality shows, including The Real Housewives of New York.
Through Instagram and social media, we learned that Kourtney and Kim Kardashian got these during their family vacation to Greece last week. Kim allegedly “freaked out” at the feel of the fish! Would you?
Clinque launched their nail polish line recently and we are Loving it with a capital L!

Have you tried a matte mani yet?
We are starting to see them all over, and we think that they are a great trend for spring!
With bright colors, matte can be a great way to do something different with your nails that deviates from the normal, glossy mani that you usually get at the salon.
You can even wear this look with a french manicure feel with matte in the body of the nail and shine at the top. What a cool look!
This is a super trendy beauty look that you’ll be happy you tried!
At the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night, nail art was the beauty trend that stole the spotlight! Among the trendsetters at the awards show were Anne Hathaway, Sarah Hyland, and Kelly Osbourne.
One of the biggest stars of the night was Anne Hathaway, who won Best Supporting Actress in her role in Les Miserables. Hathaway coordinated her nails with her stunning sheer black Giambattista Valli gown by painting the base color a bright white, and accenting a few fingernails with intricate hand-painted butterflies.
Sarah Hyland, star of one of our fave shows, Modern Family, took our breath away in a purple strapless Dolce and Gabbana dress. Not to take away from her purple perfection, Hyland chose a classic nude manicure, and dressed it up with tiny rhinestones. Love!
One of our favorite Fashion Police panelists, Kelly Osbourne’s nail decoration was true to her personality and complemented her glam rock studded black Jenny Packham dress perfectly. Kelly went with an edgier heart design, accenting her nude nails with pointy black heart-shaped tip.
Pantone declared emerald green the color of the year, and we couldn’t love their decision more! What gave the capital city of Oz its signature color is making a comeback!
Executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, describes this lush shade of green as “vivid, verdant and promoting balance and harmony”. Eiseman assured us that emerald can be easily applied to your wardrobe as well as to your interior design. Emerald is making its debut in many designers’ Spring 2013 collections, such as Tracey Reese and Nanette Lepore. Sephora is launching a 2013 Color of the Year Collection, appearing on shelves in March. Home good retailers, such as JC Penney, are incorporating Pantone Emerald into their product lines this season through bedding, accessories, pillows and towels.
Although retailers and designers have embraced Pantone’s color choice, this bold definitely received some mixed reviews in the fashion community. What do you think? Will you be “going green” in style this season?
Have you ever found buying nail polish to be a little bit too expensive? I mean, getting the good stuff will cost you a minimum of $10 a bottle, if not much, much more.
For that reason, Lacquerous is a new service that allows you to rent polishes so you can use lots of colors, but now have to actually purchase them. How genius is that?!
For $18 a month, you get to choose three designer polishes to rent. The site features brands such as Chanel, Butter, Nars, and MAC and they have tons of uh-may-zing colors!
Signing up for this is a great way to save money, use and sport top brands, and look absolutely fabulous!
We all know that Brazilian beauty is totally fabulous – from Brazilian blowouts to waxing treatments – but there is a new crazy surrounding this country!
Brazilian manicures are a new fad that are hitting salons everywhere. You may be asking what is it? We are here to tell you!
A Brazilian manicure is an intense manicure that focuses on the cuticles. After a luxurious paraffin soak your cuticles will be removed. This is to ensure that the nail is completely flat.
The interesting thing about these manicures is that not only the nail is painted, but the skin around the nail is as well to ensure the entire bed is coated and to make the manicure last longer.
After the painting is done, a special tool is used to wipe away any excess polish.
Then, voila! You’ve got yourself a fab manicure!
What do you think? Are you going to try this new treatment?
