10 Fall Pedicure Colors That Are So Chic

10 Fall Pedicure Colors That Are So Chic

When September rolls around every year, I am in denial about saying goodbye to summer without fail. Yes, even in 2020 when we haven’t really had the most “normal” summer. I usually refuse to wear jeans, pants, tights, and other leg-covering materials until I find myself shivering away. And I sparingly wear boots, flats, and closed-toe shoes, trying to get the most out of what’s left of sandal season. So yeah, you can say I have a hard time letting go of things. But because I am still pushing the limits of my sandal wearing until October, I have one concession for…

The season of spooky fashion (aka Halloween) will be here in the blink of an eye. And to be honest, it’s never too early to start prepping your costume, which we’ve actually already started to do for you. We’ve spotlighted some great It girl–approved costumes, found modest dress-up ideas perfect for the office, and even looked to the internet for some meme-inspired costumes that’ll make everyone LOL (for real!). We recognize, though, that costumes might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be festive in some other way: Cool makeup is one option for adding a…

Wear These 4 Colors to Look Younger

Wear These 4 Colors to Look Younger

While being comfortable in one’s own skin (and wardrobe) is numero one, it’s safe to say that one thing that no one wants to wear is something that ages them. A youthful appearance is something we all strive for, whether subconsciously or not. One of the most effective ways to achieve that youthful glow is via the colors we chose to wear. Given that there are thousands of Pantone colors at any given time, we turned to an expert in the field to guide us toward the exact colors to wear if you want to look younger. Kate Smith is the president and chief color…

The 16 Best OPI Nail Colors for Fall, According to OPI HQ

The 16 Best OPI Nail Colors for Fall, According to OPI HQ

Growing up, I collected bottles of OPI nail polish like my friends collected Beanie Babies, Pokémon cards, Happy Meal toys, Furbies, and any other treasure you’d find nestled inside a ’90s baby starter pack. I’m sure my obsession with OPI nail colors, in particular, came partly from my mom, who wore a regular rotation of iconic hues like I’m Not Really a Waitress, You Don’t Know Jacques!, Bogotá Blackberry, Lincoln Park After Dark, and OPI Red. I thought she was the most glamorous being to walk the earth, so naturally, I thought OPI nail colors were the most glamorous beauty accessory one could…

If you’re looking to freshen up your wardrobe with clothing that complements your skin tone, you’ve come to the right place.

The 10 Best Chanel Nail Polish Colors of All Time

The 10 Best Chanel Nail Polish Colors of All Time

In our humble opinion, everything emblazoned with the iconic Chanel logo warrants attention—and the brand’s nail polish line is no exception. Brimming with full-bodied hues ranging from classic ruby red to kitschy mint green, there’s a Chanel nail polish color for every occasion. Best of all, each shade is formulated with nourishing ceramides and bioceramides, which work to strengthen nails over time. But considering that the brand currently stocks upward of 100 colors, selecting your signature shade can be a bit daunting. Thanks to the Chanel Beauty team and their resident nail expert, Betina Goldstein, we were able to narrow it down to the…

28 Dark Nail Colors for Your Next Manicure

28 Dark Nail Colors for Your Next Manicure

I don’t paint my nails often, but when I do, I really like to experiment with new colors. I don’t mind getting a little wild in that department. I went through a nail-art obsession phase in my mid-20s, so I’m not exactly a minimalist. I have the go-to hues that I gravitate toward, but I like to look all over for inspiration. Recently, I’ve been using my co-workers, Instagram, and celebs as my nail-color muses. And they’ve provided a lot of ideas. I don’t know what it is, but lately I’ve been really drawn to dark, moody colors. In addition to…

The 7 Best Long-Lasting Nail Colors for Fall 2020

The 7 Best Long-Lasting Nail Colors for Fall 2020

We’ve done our best to keep it all together these last few months, but our beauty routines sure have changed. For better or worse, we’ve been tasked with taking matters into our own hands when it comes to everything from chemical peels to hair color. While we’ve gotten pretty good at executing at-home gel manicures, too, we can’t help but think of how nice it could be to use this extra time away from prying eyes to give our nails some breathing room away from that perfect looking, but sometimes damaging cured lacquer. Fun fact: A number of nail polish brands have upped the ante by…
