If you know anything about xoNecole, you know that in addition to sex and relationships, another subject that our readers are really into are nails. Past articles on the site like "Cloud Nails Are Seriously Your Next Dreamy Mani Trend", "A Floating French Manicure Is The Fall Nail Trend You Didn't Know You Needed," and "IG's Latest Nail Trend Is The Perfect Segue Into Spring" are proof of that fact. Dope nail art trends have been redefining the manicure landscape for some time now, and the latest entry on the 2020 trend list are of the stained-glass variety.

The stained-glass nail art trend gives me one-part southern Baptist church vibes and all parts "stunt on 'em." Who knew the stained-glass windows that were an important fixture in churches exclusively for a thousand years would one day be your manicure's very own mosaic muse? But, how could it not? The colored glass and strips of lead used to create such intricate images and designs back in the day is now the inspiration for turning your nails into the masterpieces they were destined to be.

Don't believe me? Keep scrolling for our favorite renditions of the stained-glass nail art trend so far.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
