Fun Nail Trends To TryWe here at ChickAdvisor love nails and nail art
, but sometimes doing the same old classic red polish can get a bit 'ho-hum'. With summer here, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some fabulous new nail polish collections and some gorgeous colours we can't keep our eyes off of! Plus, if you're looking for some nail art inspiration, we've got a gallery of gorgeous styles....
Your Summer Pedicure Style + Must-Haves Essentials
Summer time means shorts, swim suits and sandals. Which in turn means shaving, waxing and pedicures. While it's nice to treat yourself to a fun and relaxing spa day every so often; it isn't always possible to make the trip. Which is where the at home pedicure comes in handy!
Creating a spa like atmosphere right in your own bathroom is actually pretty simple. Why not try and DIY some...
Fifty Shades of Grey Inspired Beauty: 10 Gorgeous Greys To Try
With all the buzz around the hot new book series Fifty Shades Of Grey
, we're predicating right now that grey becomes the 'it colour' of the season. It's elegant, flattering on almost everyone and can easily be done both for a night out and day at the office.
While we already rounded up 10 fabulously sexy 'little grey dresses'
we thought we needed to talk a little...
We Love Fridays: Deborah Lippman Nail Lacquers
Every month or so, I start obsessing over a specific product. Usually, it's an insanely luxe and covetable item that I know I can't afford but it's just oh-so gorgeous and I can't help but ogle picture upon picture of it. My pinterest account can attest to this fact.
A while back the object of my affection was the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
and last month
Nail Art Tutorial: The Lace Manicure
What do you get when you cross the lace nail art trend
with a polka dot manicure
? Well, you get an adorable lacy-edged inspired manicure; only this one's done all by hand, with a dotting tool.
Now, a word on dotting tools, because I express my love for them enough. Dotting tools are seriously one of the best nail art investments you'll ever make. I covet my own tool; without it I...
Watercolour Nail Art Tutorial
We first caught onto the watercolour manicure after seeing it at Toronto's Spring Fashion Week 2012 at the Lucian Matis show
. For some bizarre reason though, we never thought to try them out. We thought it would be too difficult to achieve the same runway look. But then we thought, 'nah! We're an adventurous bunch here at ChickAdvisor'. So we sat down and played...
Product Review Club: Revlon® Crazy Shine™ To Go Nail BufferSponsored
At ChickAdvisor HQ, we’re just a wee bit obsessed with nails
, nail polish
, nail art
, nail everything
… Yeah, we know – shocker. Revlon
knows a thing or two about nails (confession time: I own more shades of Revlon nail enamels
than I’d care to openly confess), so I was excited to hear about the new addition to their Crazy Shine™ Nail Buffer family
Haven’t heard of the Crazy...
How to DIY Nail StickersWe're big fans of the nail sticker trend at ChickAdvisor. We love how easy they are to apply and how you can achieve gorgeous prints in just minutes. We've even used them to bling out a French mani! Of course, the downside to nail stickers is that you're limited to whatever designs are sold. Well, not anymore! We came across this post on DIY nail stickers and we knew we had to...
Nail Art Tutorial: The Caviar Manicure
A while back, we posted a few photos of a sushi manicure hot off the runway
and we could all pretty much agree that it wasn't for us. The newest craze in nail art, while not being sushi is certainly close to it. It's called the caviar manicure; so named for the little beads on the nail that imitate the look of caviar.
For warning, while this look is kind of kooky-fun, it...
Nail Art Tutorial: French Manicure With Nail Stickers
As many of you already know, I make it a point in my life to make sure everyone around me is getting enough glitter in their lives. Which, brings me to this week's nail tutorial. Lorna loves a bit of bling, but she's also very minimalist and basic in her beauty and clothing choices. So, while we wanted to test out these sparkled out nail stickers on Lorna, we also wanted to find a way to...
