A quick check of my DVR will reveal that I’m a reality TV junkie, especially competition shows that require actual talent. That’s why the nail fanatic in me is excited to watch Nail’d It!premiering October 7th at 9/8c only on Oxygen.

It’s the first nail art competition show, hosted by Adrian Bailon, featuring up and coming nail artists and an all-star judging panel, including CND Co-Founder Jan Arnold, Celebrity MAN-icurist Tom Bachik and “The Nail Villian” and Celebrity Nail Stylist, Terrance Terry.

To give you an idea of what’s in store, I have a clip from a “Quick Dry Challenge” for you with some sick nail designs. Check it out!

China Glaze Fall 2014 – All Aboard

When I think of train travel, I immediately picture the episode of Sex and The City where Carrie and Samantha venture cross country with visions of luxurious sleeper compartments and glamorous bar car parties that are quickly squashed by the reality of today’s rail system.

Though, like a scene out of 50s movie, the China Glaze All Aboard collection hearkens back to a more elegant time for the rails, when people dressed for travel and the possibility of meeting your Cary Grant on board was alive and well.

Nails Inc Nailkale

Watching kale, the vitamin-packed superfood, go on the food trend roller coaster from “oh so popular” to “oh so over,” it was only a matter of time before it became a buzzed about beauty ingredient.

While I’ve seen face products infused with kale, Nails Inc is the first nail brand to embrace the benefits of the leafy green. The Nails Inc Nailkale line not only brings us a new, nourishing formula, it also introduces new packaging, including a way to try on the polish before you buy it. Keep reading to see what I mean.
