A Skeptic Becomes a Big Fan of Manicures

Here’s an entertaining story of a woman who was not much of a fan of anything having to do with outward signs of femininity (wearing makeup, styling her hair, or doing her nails). But after a trip to the nail salon and picking out “bright purple with sparkles” for her nails, she now sings a different tune. She finds that receiving a manicure was not so bad, and she thinks that she will continue to have glitzier nails in the future.

Celebrity Nail Designs from the Met Gala

This is from a few weeks ago, but it’s still worth checking out. Several celebrities showed up for the Met Gala in New York with eye-catching nail designs. Some of the notable women whose manicures stood out were Jennifer Lawrence, Katy Perry, Blake Lively, and Sienna Miller. From gold-accented talons to short, simple nails each with a single jewel, there were a variety of looks on the red carpet.

Here are two rundowns of the nail fashions of the evening: “Celeb Nail Art At The Met Gala: Our 5 Faves” from Look Magazine and “Met Gala 2013 Nail Art: The Night’s Top Tips” from People StyleWatch.

Both links feature a number of images of the celebrity nails.

OPI Creates a Color for Charity: Sandy Hook Green

Here is an interesting way to raise money for charity: OPI has created a limited-edition shade of nail polish called Sandy Hook Green. The color will not be available for purchase; instead, people will receive the polish when making a $10 donation at a fundraiser for victims of the Sandy Hook School tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

The fundraiser took place at a local salon on May 19. The salon also offered a number of services like manicures, haircuts, and more, each of which would come with a free bottle of Sandy Hook Green. The whole event seems like a fun way for nail enthusiasts to support a local fundraising effort.
