Nail art--in its over-the-top 3D incarnation, at least--is waning in popularity a bit, and polishes aimed at giving you a nail art-y feel without all the work have been taking its place. We tried tons of the so-called textured polishes--here's what we think.
New York celebrated a milestone this past weekend. Gay marriage was just legalized in the state, and this past Sunday was the first day couples could take advantage of it. (Check out the great coverage in the NY Times Styles section. You will cry.) The wedding industry has jumped on the opportunity to market things to gay couples, and now the beauty industry is, too. We love this new collection of nail polish by Color Club, which features a rainbow of shades with cheeky names: P is for Pride; Polish for All; Dress for the Parade; Not Just for Kelly, Green; Boys Wear Blue; Express Yourself. We wish they had gone even further with the names, like "Drag Me to Stonewall" or "Queen of Christopher Street." (We have fantasies of being a nail polish namer. Sorry.)
