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.
