These Are The Manicures We Can't Stop Fawning Over

The creativity is endless.

Beauty & Fashion

I used to be the girl who never got her nails done and simply settled for a clean cuticle and some clear polish, but now I'm never missing an appointment. Doing my nails has become a part of my self-care pamper routine and another way for me to express creativity. Every two or three weeks, I'm searching for new nail inspo that represents the mood or vibe I'm in at the time. From color to shape to style, the creativity is literally endless.

As we enter a new season, the change of weather has inspired a switch up for me. As we say goodbye to bright colors of the summer and transition into dark muted colors of the cooler months, this is some nail inspiration that I can't stop obsessing over.

Marble Nails

If an all-black nail color isn't your thing, opting for a dark marble nail design might be a better option. Regardless of the length or nail shape, this design will definitely fit your style. It's a great way of doing a little sumthin' but not doing too much.

Hot Chocolate Nails

It's nothing new to have nail trends or makeup looks inspired by your favorite drink, we've seen it with pumpkin spice and other fall/winter favorites. My latest obsession is the hot chocolate nails. Opting for a shade of brown is a simple way to get into the change of the new season.

I'm very late to the trend, but I love it. Not only does it allow you to mix and match colors to make one seamless look, but you can get as creative as you want to and try something a little more exciting than the typical French manicure. For my 9-5 girls who need to keep it professional, you can still do this look with subtle nude colors.

A Thin Line...

I'm not going to lie to you, this nail trend has a lot of variations and names but it very versatile. I love how Breanna incorporated horizontal and vertical lines for a very chic manicure. I really think she took the trend and made it her own.

Logo Nails

I'm not going to lie, I don't know that I would actually try this, but the ones I saw were really cute. Logo nails have definitely become increasingly popular recently. I've seen Louis Vuitton, Tory Burch, and Chanel inspired nails among many others. I admire the art behind this and think it's impressive to fit this on such a small space.

Cartoon Nails

Like logo nails, y'all have even gotten more creative with cartoon nails. People are paying homage to their favorite childhood cartoon shows with their nail designs and honestly this is one of my favorites!

Matte Nails

This is one of my favorite nail art designs. Matte nails are very chic and simple. It's also a great switch up from the super glossy and shiny nails. The colors really take her nails to another level in my opinion. For her take on the popular rainbow nails trend, Kendra picked five colors that complement each other very well.

Multi-Shape Nails

If you can't decide on one nail shape, get them all. At first, I wasn't sure how I felt about it but it looks really cute once I saw the finished product. It's no different from getting multiple colors and at this point there are no rules to the nail game if it slays.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
