During the last #NailGlossip chat, where we discussed runway nails, I threw down the gauntlet to Jen of The PolishAholic and our guest co-host Kellie Gonzo to re-create a fave look from Fashion Week.

I’ve been scoping out the looks from NYC, London, Paris and Milan and the major nail art trends tend to lie with Moon Manicures, Non-Traditional French, Texture and Negative Space Nail Art. It’s the negative space designs that really caught my eye, especially the look created by Miss Pop Nails for Essie at Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan.

DIY Chalkboard Nail Art Tutorial

So yesterday’s post about the Revlon Nail Art Chalkboard™ duos got me thinking about those of you who don’t want to plunk down cash on an expensive kit or invest in a short-lived trend. Why not shop our own stashes to create some Chalkboard Nail Art?

I dug out tools, treatments and nail polishes that were otherwise collecting dust in a Helmer somewhere and DIY’d my own Chalkboard designs. If you’re even half as fanatical about nails as I am, you already have everything you need to make this happen.

Makeup Wars: Color Wars – Teal

I know I’ve mentioned it in the past but one of the best things to come from starting this blog is the people I’ve met. Readers, brand reps and my fellow beauty bloggers. My blogging buddies have become some of my closest friends, which is why I’m thrilled to be joining a group of my fave ladies in Makeup Wars!

Makeup Wars is a battle among bloggers to share their favorite products in a variety of topics; fave purple nail polish, best sunscreens, etc. This week is Color Wars! Each blogger in the group selected a shade to highlight and I chose TEAL!

I have an affection for teal since it combines two of my favorite shades, blue and green. And unlike Jennifer Lopez’s character in The Wedding Planner, I do not associate teal with “the color of gangrene.” It’s a fab accent color for eyes and simply stunning on nails.

Not only is teal shaping up to be one of the hot colors for Fall 2013, it’s also part of my FingerPaints A Pair Affair by All Lacquered Up collection. And today I’m thrilled to give you the first real look at FingerPaints Our Tips Are Tealed, paired with one of my all-time favorite eyeliners. Plus, I have three more gorgeous teal polishes to share.

Summer Nail Trend Alert – Glitter-Tipped White Nails

White parties. Crisp, white pants. A fitted white tee. During this sticky, humidity-filled season, wearing white feels clean, chic and fresh. That goes for nails as well. We’ve talked about the white nail trend in the past but this year’s version brings sparkle to the party.

Finding the perfect white nail polish can be hard. They can be too sheer, streaky or chalky. Adding a glittery tip gives white nails a funky edge and keeps the look from feeling too dated or mod.

This week’s People Magazine features top celebrity manicures for summer chosen by nail pros and I’m thrilled to be one of them. Keep reading to see which celebrity’s look I selected and how you can get it yourself!
