There are very few things I love more than a good throwback, like an all-time classic movie like 90s teen hit Clueless — especially when it inspires something else I love: nail art. NCLA Clueless Nail Wraps are very similar to any other nail stickers on the market, except these are designed after Cher’s outfits from the movie: animal prints, road signs, even some of the best quotes from the film. There are four different sets from the collection, including “Cher’s Closet”, “Everywhere You Go Has Valet”, “I Totally Paused!”, and finally my favorite, “Virgin Who Can’t Drive”. If you’re a fan of the movie and not the best at doing your own nails, be sure to check them out — and even if you get them as a silly gift for a girlfriend, they’re all around awesome!

Nail polish trends have gone a little wild since this past spring with textured nails and jewels, it’s no wonder the craziness is continuing. This fall, textured nails are still a thing, but they’ve become more subtle. Metallic nails are become increasingly popular, especially in the gunmetal grey colors, and purple and green are also trending. Whether it’s a lavender and hunter green or a vibrant purple and blue green shade, these two colors are being seen from all the major nail companies.
My favorite collection for fall I’ve seen, though, is the Essie-Fall 2013 4 Piece Cube Collection ($17). It combines all of the above trends with their own edge and style but made to match perfectly. Even seeing these polishes separately you know they belong in the same collection. My advice when buying new polishes for this season, start with this one!
I recently got rid of my longer nails and was so excited to be able to keeping up with all of the new nail trends, however I was quickly reminded of the fact that I am terrible at doing my own nails! So I was back at the salon getting regular manicures in fun colors, but I was a little disappointed because one of the trends I was dying to try out was the texturized nails. For as long as I can remember, women have been obsessed with matte nail polishes and making sure there were no bumps on their nails after drying, but that has recently all changed. A bunch of different designers in the nail world have decided to create 3-D nail polishes that can leave the nail feeling and looking like sand paper or adding things like jewels or glitter.
When I decided to try this at home on myself, let’s just say it didn’t go as planned. But then I discovered the Essie Nail Stickers ($10.25) and couldn’t have been any more excited. They are UV-cured so they won’t chip away easily and you can throw a top coat over them to make sure they have that extra bit of shine. Also, they are extremely easy to use. You simply peel, stick and file to shape it to your nail and to get rid of the excess sticker on the edges. My favorite thing about these is that the annoying nail polish, which always seems impossible to get rid of, around your nail is gone! Never fight with nail polish again while doing an at-home manicure!
