A simple french manicure has taken a colorful turn. The latest trend now is a rainbow french manicure. That is, a french manicure with different colors on each nail forming what is like a rainbow of colors on each hand.
The color striping is on the tip of the nail and replaces the traditional white french tip.
People are loving it and it does add that “spice” of life and whimsical happy nails that people are looking for.
Give it a try.
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Thank goodness not everyone likes the same style or the same color. It would be a very bland world indeed.
There are however some manicures that make you pause and wonder why anyone thought that was a good idea. The color is wild, the nails are too sharp, and sometimes you wonder how anyone can function with nails “like that”.
Take for example getting extremely long fingernails. How does anyone drive a car, open a door, scratch their head, or even use the bathroom with those nails? A wild tattoo is one thing, but it’s just design. A manicure with strange or wildly long nails becomes a functional issue.
Nevertheless, you can have any nail design or length you want. It’s up to you. Just be prepared for feedback like “that’s an ugly manicure”, or “those are just plain ugly” or “What where you thinking?”
The true contrarian will be fine with all this. They may be used to reaction from wild hair, body piercings or funky clothes. They may even relish the idea of shocking the world with an offbeat manicure.
It can be fun to extract a reaction from others with an ugly manicure or one that seems unworkable. The nice thing about manicures is that they can be reversed. It’s not like a tattoo that can not easily be removed without a lot of pain and expense.
To each her own. If you want to show the world your wild side, go for it.
Here's a funny post by a typist that had long nails done. She couldn't type after that. Talking with many working women I find that they don't get their nails done often because work destroys them or it's impossible to do work with beautiful long nails.
Here's the story:
I got my nails done on Tuesday after I saw this clip of Kim Kardashian with a beautiful pastel manicure. The color actually reminds me of the gaming system from the 1999 Canadian filmeXistenZ starring Jennifer Jason Leigh
At the nail salon, I said I wanted a full set of acrylics, and the tips plus the manicure together were only $40 which is practically free so my brain stopped working and I leaned in. When the manicurist asked me how long I wanted them, she suggested, "Not too long and not too short, right?"
I disagreed. "With me, you're going to want to err on the side of too long." See, when I was in high school my fake nails were so long that they crept into more yearbook photos than my face did. They were incredible.
Anyway, back to this week: almost immediately I realized I had a little trouble texting, but it didn't occur to me that I was potentially destroying my career as a professional typist until I got home and sat down at my computer. Utter nonsense came out.
What's the solution? Well, I could either cut my nails (no) or do what I imagine Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj do: hire an assistant. That's how good they look.
[This is Kara. As it turns out, I actually have a real job and can't sit around all day typing shit on Jane's behalf. So if anyone in the Los Angeles area would like to volunteer their hands, I would very much appreciate it.]

How to Ace a Manicure at Home
Tom Bachik knows nails. He designs looks for Jennifer Lopez and Victoria Beckham, he is L’Oreal Paris’s brand ambassador, and he has over 54,000 Instagram followers. People look to him as a manicure mensa.
Working with Tom over the years, I’ve gotten to know his fun personality and learned so many great tricks that I figured, “why not share the wealth?” We sat down after a nail art shoot to discuss the dos and don’ts of at-home manicures, and thus The Manicure Bible was born.
So does buffing your nails matter? What’s the deal with file grit? And how can you ensure streak-free polish application? Tom shares the tricks he uses on Zooey Deschanel and Heidi Klum, all in the name of the perfect set of nails.

Of course you can always get your nails done in a similar fashion for the holidays. Nail art is something that can really give you nails a new look and provide much to talk about at holiday parties.

Halloween is almost here and those wonderful scarey nails are starting to appear. We have Halloween designs that will make you the envy of all who see them. Ask Thao to show you samples.
The problem with getting your nails done for Halloween is that everyone seems to wait until the last few days. When that happens we always end up turning away clients. There are not enough hours in the day close to a holiday to service everyone, unfortunately. If you plan ahead however, you can get your nails in beautiful scarey shape before the holiday. If you happen to break a nail between now than then it’s a simple short fix and we can fit you in.
Halloween is one of the most creative and festive holidays. We have designs that you’ll love, but you can come up with your own ideas as well. Want to be a witch with long freaky nails? We can do that for you. Want to be an Ogre with green nails? Yes.. we can do that for you.
Have you ever been to a nail salon in Walmart? There is nothing wrong with them per-se. Here in Utah, American Fork, Lehi, Orem, Draper, etc. you’ll find nail salons in most Walmarts. We thought about operating from a Walmart location as well.
Walmart locations do have some problems to overcome. First, the nature of Walmart and it’s perception of “discount” reflects on all the businesses that are inside. A nail salon in Walmart in my minds is seen as a cheaper version of a “real” nail salon. Not true, but that is the way people feel either consciously or subconsciously.
Another problem is that most nail salons in Walmart are of an open design. As you walk by you can clearly view everyone there getting a manicure or pedicure. Hundreds of people walk by as you are being worked on. Sometimes or most of the time you want privacy while getting a personal service. For those wearing a dress, having your feet up in a pedicure chair is sometimes revealing enough without having hundreds of people walking by that could steal a peek.
Notice rarely will you find a TV inside a Nail Salon in Walmart? The reason is that the sound bleeds in to Walmart itself and they don’t want that. Speaking of sounds, how about listening to every Walmart announcement and every cash register, even the self serve ones, while you try to relax?
Did you ever hear the security system go off while at Walmart? You know, the thing that beeps and twangs when someone leaves the store with a forgotten security tag intact? If you like that, perhaps we can blow a hand held boat horn next time we do you nails… !
Nail Salons in Walmart are fine. They do get the job done. It’s just not the most relaxing or ideal place to enjoy a manicure or pedicure.
