Put down that bottle of bright pink nail polish! We rounded up the freshest, most unexpected color combinations from this week’s red carpets, so all you have to worry about this Memorial Day weekend is what BBQ to hit up — not what color to paint your nails. Here’s how to make your mani/pedi your best accessory.

Nail Salon Exposé: How to Make Sure You're Getting an Ethical Mani (While New York Works to Regulate the Salons)

May/11/2015 at 03:47 PM ET

If you’re ready to whip out your bright-hued polish to take to your local salon for your summertime pedi, you might want to hold off for the moment. Last week, The New York Times published a two-part exposé on the health issues manicurists face (miscarriages, skin and respiratory ailments, to name a few) when exposed to harsh chemicals during manicure and pedicure treatments on a daily basis — all in the name of customers’ beauty concerns. The series also highlighted the fact that, in addition to the health risks, nail salon employees are often paid severely below the minimum wage — and sometimes forced to pay a “training fee” before being paid for services — meaning employees take home as little as $30 to $40 a day for 10- to 12-hour workdays.

Nail Polish That Lasts Weeks Without Chipping (It Actually Exists!)

Apr/27/2015 at 06:00 AM ET

It’s hard to leave the nail salon without nicking your fresh mani, but that’s about to change. We found a polish that’s a hybrid between regular lacquer and gel. The best part? It’ll last weeks before you see a chip.

This Caption polish has the same shiny finish as a gel and dries three times faster than a lacquer. So if you like a product that saves time and offers longer lasting results (that would be everyone), we suggest you have your credit cards ready.

For the best results, use your Caption polish with the entire Caption Nail system including the fortifying base coat and long-wear top coat for ultimate shine. We’ve chosen three classic colors — a nude pink, hot pink and a classic red. The set with a color, base coat and top coat is $36 — or $12 per bottle.

Beyoncé's 'Something Blue' at Her Wedding: Her Manicure!

Apr/10/2015 at 11:20 AM ET

From the brief snippets we’ve seen of Beyoncé’s wedding to Jay Z, the whole shebang looked completely classic, from the star’s classic strapless dress with its enormous train and tons of ruching to the soft pink lighting and the all-white color scheme. But because she’s Beyoncé, she did have one slight variation from tradition: She sported her “something blue” on her nails.

Kim Kardashian: 'I Have the Hairiest Forehead You Could Ever Imagine'

Mar/04/2015 at 06:14 PM ET

Kim Kardashian West is very open when it comes to her beauty routine. We know this because she didn’t hold anything back as PEOPLE’s guest beauty editor in this week’s issue. For example, her candor about laser hair removal on her hairline is not only refreshing, but a story you probably haven’t heard. So let’s have her tell you.

Feb/09/2015 at 11:01 AM ET

It was a big night for Beyoncé (okay, when is it not a big night for Beyoncé?), so it makes sense that the star wanted to be decked in diamonds on the Grammys red carpet. To be more specific, the singer wore more than $10 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
