Tortoiseshell Nail Manicures Are Back On Our Roster


Getting my nails done feels like self-care to me, and that's not up for debate. When I was younger, I stuck with bold colors on my nails, but didn't really dip my toe into nail designs until I got older. Once I started getting more confident in myself, I realized that I love elaborate and intricate nail art because it literally is a second version of self-expression. But of course, nail trends come and go, and it's always hard to keep up.

Well, IG has spoken and tortoiseshell nails are back on our roster.

I think this trend means a lot to me because I had a tortoise growing up #sentimentalmoment, but these nails are also fire with their design. Just looking at the #tortoiseshellnails hashtag will immediately fill you with nail envy and excitement for a hot girl summer. People have put their own spin on the trend — from adding neon (another nail trend) stripes to some nails, to a variety of coloration and technique.

If you're interested in the trend, remember that it's not about mastery, it's about fun. So, if you're down to try tortoiseshell nails, we've rounded up a few recommendations on how you can put your own flavor on it:

Umm...Wanna Learn How To Swallow? Try These 10 Hacks.

I mean, you see the title. You know what it is. LOL. I will share the inspiration for this real quick before diving all the way in.

I must admit that I don’t watch The Real Housewives franchises all that much. There are several reasons why, yet the main one is there seem to be less and less actual wives on the show, so — the title is hella misleading. Sometimes, when I’m channel surfing (is it just me or does it seem like we’ve all got a ton of channels with not much merit on ANY of them?), I’ll find myself intrigued. And so, not too long ago, when the ladies ofThe Real Housewives of Potomac got into the topic of who swallows — yes, sperm and semen — Robyn Dixon copped to it while everyone else looked appalled, two things came to my mind.
