This Nail Trend Is Perfect For The Woman Who Can Never Pick A Nail Color

Taste the rainbow.

Beauty & Fashion

It feels like there is no struggle in the world that is realer than picking a color in the nail shop, but the latest trend in the nail world is sure to solve your claw-related conundrum and give you a dose of flair that you didn't know you were missing. Much like rainbow nails, the Skittles nail trend can be recreated by picking 5-10 polishes for each individual finger, except this time you'll pick a Skittles-inspired theme (or one that's monochromatic), giving you an aesthetically-pleasing manicure that champions indecision.

While this colorful creation may scare my fellow neutral nail polish lovers, never fear, you can use any color in the rainbow, even nude. This simple trend is perfect on its own, but ladies who are looking for a little extra edge should consider leaving room on one finger on each hand for a pop of color, Swarovski crystals, and glitter. To achieve this look, make sure to choose different hues of the same color, but depending on your style, you can get as crazy as you want, sis.

We've taken the liberty of rounding up some major nail inspo that will have you ready to book your next mani-pedi ASAP:

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
