Fourth of July Nail Art: Three Very Different (but Easy-to-Do!) Manicures

Jul/03/2015 at 04:30 PM ET

If we could offer one tip for the Fourth of July weekend, it’s that red white or blue nails (or a cool combo of all three colors) are the way to go. So after you’ve finished hand-smashing potatoes for your award-winning salad, pop into the nearest salon (or get out your kit for some DIY fun) and apply a design that will work with your beach and BBQ attire. Here are our faves for Independence Day.

Jackie Fields' Firework-Inspired ManiJackie Fields

Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: Katy Perry said: “Baby you’re a firework.” And she was right. So, this weekend I’m making sure all my friends say, “oh, oh, oh” not just to the lit up sky, but to my sparkly mani. I started with TenOverTen’s Washington, which is hands down the best white nail polish ever created. I believe the name of the color was inspired by the N.Y.C. street, it couldn’t be more fitting for this patriotic weekend. After three coats, I opted to top my middle fingers off with Trust Fund Beauty’s Killer Heels. It’s a multi-color sparkle that I applied not to the entire nail, but diagonally from the bottom left corner across to the top right, then from the bottom right corner across to the top left, so that some white would still be very stylishly visible on those nails. When used as an overlay on top of my low-key ivory, this glittery coat created a look that was super-fun, but age still age-appropriate.

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.

If you’re a first time Joyus shopper, enter PEOPLE10 at checkout to get 10% off orders over $50 and free shipping.
