Rachel Bilson Rocks Retro Beauty

Rachel Bilson has always emanated the epitome of clean-cut, girl-next-door beauty.

For some of us, growing out our nails is easier said than done. In light of all the compulsive nail-biters worldwide, here are a few simple steps you can take to get those nails longer than you thought possible.

Most of you have heard of food fixes that can go into home-made facial masks, skin treatments, hair resuscitation and so much more. We’re willing to bet, however, that few of you have ever suspected that you can use a couple edibles to the benefit of your manicure.

The best beauty trends let you have it all, and that’s certainly the case with some of this summer’s hottest nail polish styles. Two-toned, color-blocked and wacky French tips like you’ve never seen before are all teaming up to make this season one of the hottest nail-biting adventures yet.

Bringing your oils, acrylics and canvases with you to the beach this summer is always a must-do activity, but even those of you who can’t draw a stick figure to save your lives won’t want to miss out on the newest nail trends that are cropping up on the style scene this season.

It’s hard enough to find time to give your hands and feet the proper treatment they deserve, but it’s even worse to squander your efforts with one careless swipe of your hand. If you’re in need of some expert strategies to help prolong the life of your manicure, simply read on.

Spring is here, which means it’s time to stuff those ratty old gloves and mittens into some half-forgotten drawer and start celebrating your hands again!

If you thought that opting for a Frenchie meant consigning yourself to a plain pink and white manicure, think again. This spring, French manicures are getting in tune with their wild side, which means a whole lot of vibrant fun for your hands.

So many of us have had that moment – you know, the one where you sigh and lean back, content with the flawless manicure you just pulled off, only to hit your hand against something and recoil in horror as you see your hard work endure the worst kind of smear campaign.

Running low on new and unusual things to try when you paint your nails? Consider revamping your manicure just a touch with what Glamour.com calls a “one of these nails is not like the other” nail polish idea.

If you’re like a lot of us, the day-to-day stresses of everyday life may inspire all kinds of unruly nail-biting habits and cuticle abuse. And, on top of everything else, we’re just starting to see the light at the end of the long winter tunnel, a season which isn’t particularly known for being friendly to our hands.

The same woman that’s behind the manicure confections that pay homage to Jessica Rabbit is also responsible for masterminding the talons sported by the shock-pop queen herself, Lady Gaga.
