Teyana Taylor added another exciting project to her resume. The star from Kanye West’s “Fade” video is about to open a ’90s-themed nail salon in Harlem. The throwback nail salon, Junie Bee Nails, named after her 2-year-old daughter with basketball player Iman Shumpert will officially open its doors for business on February 20. The nail salon comes as a result of Teyana’s partnership with one of the most famous nail polish brands OPI. Last week, the singer and dancer held her first press event where she revealed that she is the new brand ambassador for OPI.
The proud throwback nail salon owner sported a vibrant combo that perfectly complemented the ’90s theme of the place. Teyana donned a vintage Chanel satin jacket and bright green leggings. Her hair was styled in Bantu Knots that left space for the statement earrings to shine in full force. The singer claimed that she didn’t have time to get her nails done and rocked a simple red mani. Anyway, she promised to get a lit nail design for the official opening of the salon. Knowing her love for all things bright and bold, Teyana Taylor and her salon will for sure be one of the hottest Instagram accounts to get some fun nail inspo.
Teyana didn’t miss the chance to throw a celebrity-studded party before the official opening date. All of the singer’s A-list friends came to support her latest venture. In a true ’90s fashion, rappers Missy Elliott and Lil Kim, girl groups SWV and Total, and designer Dapper Dan were among the guests. Teyana tapped the Harlem designer Dapper Dan to design the employees’ uniforms. The entire salon is also decorated in ’90s style with bright colors and graffiti all over the place.
“I want it to be an experience!’ – Teyana explains the idea behind the playful aesthetic of Junie Bee Nails.
The singer partnered up with, Coca Michelle, a London-born artist who has started creating nail designs since the age of 6. Both ladies loved the colorful and positive aesthetic of the ’90s and decided to build the salon around that style. Anyway, Junie Bee Nails will offer all kinds of nail designs, not just funky ’90s nails. According to Teyana “there will be retro nails, new nails, gel, natural, acrylic, all that, anything you want.’
Teyana chose a Harlem location ( 2230 7th ave New York NY 10030) to give an opportunity to talented girls from her community. The singer stated that she made sure to hire women from the neighborhood to work at the nail salon.

It doesn’t matter if it’s about hair, makeup or nails, if you are like us, you want to keep up with the latest trends. Aside from the metallic and chrome nails that took over Instagram in 2017, there is one other shiny nail art you’ll love.
In the last few months of 2017, glitter was a trending topic in makeup, nail art, and clothing. You might think that glitter is related to the holiday season. Anyway, we are happy to say that the shiny nail trend will be still going strong in the new year. So the next time you are in doubt whether to rock a little extra sparkle, don’t think twice. If you want to upgrade your manicure game, holographic nails are the most in-demand nail design at the moment.
Now we are finally ready to take the glitter game to a whole new level. Holographic nails became such a big hit just recently. They are real refreshment in the beauty world. Another great thing to know is that you don’t always have to visit a professional to get this nail art done. There are many holographic nail polishes available that you can get and experiment with colors and patterns. At salons, they usually use special powders to achieve the shiny effect.
The options are very diverse. The very creative artists on Instagram are constantly posting new pictures of how they played with the sparkling holographic shades. Some ladies prefer their manicure to be done in only one color, while others enjoy having them decorated with prints and patterns.
If you are already bored with all the classic nail art, its time for a change. And what better way to do it than a statement manicure. You don’t have to worry about whether your nails will look like too much. The holographic trend is big everywhere, so the chances are you will see many other girls flaunting it.

If you are a trendsetter ready to follow all the hot topics, you are at the right place. Flip through the pictures below to decide which one is your favorite.
During Fashion Weeks besides hair and makeup, nails have their moment as well. Throughout the last few seasons, we were witnesses of many fun trends that became a part of the everyday life. The metallic nails and logo nails are still very popular. You can try some of these nails designs to update your fall manicure. The Spring 2018 shows during the NYFW gave us a lot of nail inspiration for the seasons that follow.
Most of the designers during the New York Fashion Week decided to do simple nail designs. So far the makeup and hair trends were mostly natural and relaxed, so obviously the nail art was there to follow. Libertine was an exception and threw a psychedelic show, with out-of-this-world nail designs.
Monse and Helmut Lang brought back a trend from last year. These two brands opted for logo nails that debuted at Balenciaga last year. Helmut showed long square nails that carried their logo in black letters. Monse, on the other hand, introduced clear, neat manicure with a red and white “M’ letter.
The one designer that doesn’t do simple or ordinary is Philipp Plein. After playing with bold hairstyles and makeup, Plein did the same thing with the nail art. His models flaunted nude or black long nails, overly-accessorized with big crystals.
Here is a selection of the most beautiful nail trends that appeared on the runway during the SS 2018 New York Fashion Week shows.
This summer we had a lot of interesting nail trends. The biggest one was the fruit nail trend. Well, the summer is going to end soon, so you better put your favorite fruit on your nails while you still have time. The Fall/Winter 2017 nail trends are knocking on our door and they won’t disappoint.
The upcoming season offers a variety of intricate nail designs that involve chains and other 3D decorations. This isn’t for every day but can make a huge statement when you feel extra bold. You can also get logo nails to celebrate your favorite fashion brand. Balenciaga and Marc Jacobs are just a few of the many fashion houses that opted for logo nails for their runway shows.
Another major nail trend is the dry-brushing. To achieve the dry brush effect on your nails wipe the most of the color from the brush and apply the nail polish on your nails with random strokes. This nail design is very wearable and you have multiple color options to experiment with.
Nail designs in neutral colors are always in style. For this Fall/Winter 2017 choose sandy and beigey nudes with cold undertones. Mix a couple of colors to break the monotony. Tipped manis are also trending this fall. All you need to do is draw curved swipes or small triangles on the tips of your nails. This is a modern upgrade of the classic French manicure.
If you want to spice things up opt for glitter. Add just a bit of glitter on strategic parts of your nails and you are ready to go. The hints of gold on dark and vibrant nail colors are a must-try as well for Fall/Winter 2017.
Take a look at the biggest nail trends for Fall/Winter 2017 and get inspired.
The summer is such a fun season to play with colors. The ocean, the beach, all the exotic cocktails, and fruits are a major inspiration that we can easily transfer in our style. When it comes to nails it’s safe to say that almost anything that you can imagine can be translated into nail art and still be wearable. Opposite of the summer makeup trends that sometimes are too dramatic and unconventional for the everyday life, the nail art allows you to get more creative with the wearable designs.
There are so many options to upgrade your manicure this summer. Take a look at these cute nail designs that are perfect for the hot summer days.
We all love pool parties in the hot summer days. Most of us like to take a lot of pictures and show off on Instagram. Make sure your nails are on point too! This pool-inspired nail design is a perfect addition to your pool-ready look.

We have all bought something just because it looks cool. In some cases we were ultimately disappointed with the product, but in others we found a magical product in incredible packaging that we were in love with. The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome nail polishes are definitely the latter.
Christian Louboutin‘s unicorn nail polishes will retail at $30 a piece and currently exist in three shades of impeccably stunning chrome. The colors are limited edition, and whether you are looking forward to the highly pigmented color or the application process and holding the iridescent chrome ‘unicorn horn’ top, the look is undeniably amazing.
The bottle itself is cut with a multifaceted appearance and the carton the nail polish comes in has a combination of all three shades in the collection, probably to motivate you to purchase the other colors because you will have a visual reminder of what you are missing.
The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome nail polish is picking up the unicorn inspired beauty product trend from 2016 and magically continuing it in 2017 for anyone who wants products that match their imagination. Interestingly, the ‘unicorn horn’ cap was actually created off the body of a calligraphy ink pen that was used for inspiration.
The limited edition Christin Louboutin Louichrome collection has 3 mini bottles in different incredibly bright and pigmented shades with a super high shine gloss. The brush inside is a triangular one, designed to pick up and deposit color much easier and in just one coat for the full bright effect.
Thanks to this, the mini bottles of polish will last longer as you are required to use less for the full vibrant look. The application will be smoother and without air bubbles, and you can get away with a single coat, but the recommendation is for two coats to be applied.
Additional inspiration comes from specchio, “a laminated leather with a mirror-like quality, loved by Christian Louboutin for its ability to capture light and take on a new direction’ according to the Christian Louboutin website.
The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome I is a luminescent neon yellow. The Loubichrome II is a deep burnished red with a bit of a surprise orange tint. The Loubichrome III has a vibrant violet magenta color within the clear multifaceted bottle.
Currently the shades are available on the Christian Louboutin website, also online at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges, Net-a-Porter and Neiman Marcus. The bottles are so amazing to look at and really stand out when compared to the typical silver or gold Louboutin nail polish bottle. Each color within this trip is infused with the ideal amount of light reflection thanks to the pearlescent reflectors mixed thoroughly into the nail polish.
The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome nail polishes are made without the addition of Formaldehyde, Tolulene or DBP. They are also gluten free!
