I am so excited to show you our latest collection – A Pair Affair by All Lacquered Up. Sally Beauty had the great pleasure of working with Michelle Mismas on this collection, and I think you will love these duos:
Our Tips are Tealed & Bare No Secrets
Sage It Ain’t So & A Grape Catch
You Yacht To Know Better & Sarong So Right
Here’s what Michelle has to say about the collection, “When it comes to nail color, I’ve never been a matchy-matchy person. I figure life is too short and I have too many nail polishes to wear just one shade at a time. So with this collection, I wanted to create three sets of on-trend duos that work for mani-pedi combinations, multi-colored manicures and nail art. The nail polishes and names represent my love of color and playful sense of humor.”
They can of course be worn separately, but I think the way they pair together for nail art and accent nails is fabulous.
Check them out and let us know which one is your favorite duo!

Do you have a signature manicure style? For instance, do you always wear some sort of nail art, or do you stick to neutrals?
Mine changes up depending on my mood. I love wearing glitters, but if I’m busy I will wear cremes so I don’t have to deal with removing stubborn glitter. I rarely wear nail art except for an accent nail once in a while. And, you will almost never see me in reds, pinks and taupes. Too conservative for these tips!
What about you? What’s your manicure style? Does it change according to mood and season?

For this look we took two of the hottest nail trends (neon colors and white polished nails) and combined them for a fun, easy manicure. Let’s get started!
Neon polishes (I used the Orly Brights Collection. In stores now!)
Artist striping tape (Found in any art supply store.)
Paint each nail a different neon shade of your choice. Neon polish is thin by nature, so this could take several coats to get it as opaque as you want. Let dry completely.
Arrange striping tape in whatever pattern you desire. It’s easiest to do this one nail at a time.
Paint an even coat of white polish over the tape. As soon as the nail is covered, remove the tape. It leaves cleaner lines when you take it off while the polish is wet. Repeat for each nail.
Swipe a coat of your favorite top coat and enjoy these gorgeous, trendy nails!

The only sheer polish I see right now has loads of glitter in it, with the sheer part playing second fiddle as the base. Most people can’t stand VNL (visible nail line) so I can understand why there aren’t a lot of sheer options on the market.
This is kind of a shame, really, because I think it is such a lovely way to wear fun colors that aren’t too in your face. Plus they are great for nail art because you can create awesome layers! Ombre nails are easy to create just by adding more coats of polish to part of your nail.
Want a manicured look without really looking like you are wearing polish? Grab a sheer color that’s close to your skin tone and your nails will be nice, shiny, and natural-looking.
Can you tell I’m a fan?

In only 12 short days, the Hunger Games movie will be in theatres! But who’s counting, right? =)
I’m a big fan of the series , so when I heard that China Glaze was coming out with a polish collection based on it, I was one very excited little fangirl.
So far I’ve tried out several of the shades but haven’t decided which one I’ll be wearing to the movie. I’m thinking Electrify might be the winner since I love Katniss’ Opening Ceremony dress.
What about you? Do you have a favorite of the collection? Will you be attending the movie on opening night?
The China Glaze Hunger Games Collection is available in Sally Beauty stores and online at SallyBeauty.com.

I’m a shoe lover, so my pedicure is the first thing on my mind when I’m getting ready for spring weather. Usually I book the appointment at the nail salon ASAP, but this year I tried something a little different.
I came upon a great little unit that gives me salon results at home. I didn’t believe it until I tried it myself, and now I can honestly say the Emoji Micro-Pedi is wonderful! It’s a battery powered rotating roller that gets rid of all the dry and cracked skin on your feet, leaving them super soft.
Follow this with Heel to Toe Moisturizing Therapy Foot Repair, a little nail polish on the toes and you will be ready for some sling back peep-toe shoes!
After this little self-pampering session, I definitely have a little spring in my step!
