Quick Beauty Tip – How To Avoid Bubbly Manicures

quicktip-prevent-polish-bubblesToday’s quick beauty tip is more like 5 in 1! Follow these steps to avoid dreaded bubbles in your manicure forever! 1. Swipe your nails clean with nail polish remover even if your nails aren’t painted. This will give you a clean canvas to work with. 2. If you moisturize, be sure to wipe the nails down before painting. This is great for your skin, but can leave residue that leads to bubbles on your nail. 3. Stop shaking the bottle before use. If you feel the need, take the bottle between the palms of your hands and swipe them back and forth. 4 & 5. Keep your coats thin and resist the urge to put nails in front of a fan or dryer. You want to ensure that the each layer of polish dries at the same time. If the top layer dries before the first, you may create bubbles.

Enjoy your perfect mani!

Nails: Water Marbling!

We heard of an awesome nail trend over the weekend, it’s called water marble nails. We love this trend because it’s an easy do it yourself kind of thing. First gather your supplies.

1 plastic container (big enough to fit your hand)
1 roll of tape
2 wood cuticle pushers
Acetone
Angled brush
Nail Polish!

Here are some easy steps to get started:

First, go ahead and fill the plastic container half way up with room temperature water then with we go ahead and start off with a base coat. We used the CHI Ceramic Nail Base & Top Coat just so our nails wont get stained. After that is dry we went ahead and painted our nails with OPI’s Amazing Spiderman Collection My Boyfriend Scales Walls. We waited for that to dry completely.

Once we made sure that was dry we went ahead and started to tape up around the cuticle (we do this so we wont have a mess on our hands and less to clean up). Go ahead and grab the CHI Ceramic Nail Lacquer Muy Caliente and place a drop in the water. Then grab the OPI color and place a drop. Keep adding as many dots as you want. Then go ahead grab your cuticle pusher and swirl the colors together when you have a desin place your first finger in face down (make sure to do these steps fast you don’t want the colors drying)
Keep your finger there until the colors on top of the water is dry and pick them up with the cuticle pusher.

Follow these steps for the rest of your fingers. Grab the CHI Base and Top coat and apply on top. When you are done make sure your hand is pretty dry and take off the tape. After grab the angled brush, dip it in acetone and clean up any of the nail polish around your nails. Voilà you have a pretty marble nail.

OPI Shatter Collection

OPI Red Shatter

If you have been observing the latest nail polish trends, nail art is a form of expression to highlight our mood or our own personal sense of style. We have seen nails with graduating colors of shades, called ombre, funky designs, the Miami skyline, music notes from music sheets and puzzles from the daily crossword. There is no limit to nail design and the OPI Shatter Collection takes us to new heights in what we can do with nail art. We consider OPI nail lacquers one of the best nail polishes and we were excited when OPI formulated a way to paint your nails while achieving a unique design called shatter. The collection comprises various shades of shatter nail polish. You can mix-and match the nail polish with whichever color you prefer. We considered applying a pink nail polish as a base, and applied the OPI Red Shatter on top. We were amazed at how great our nails looked. We tried a gold nail polish as a base, and applied the OPI White Shatter on top. The combination of gold and white shatter looked real glam. If you have been asking where to find OPI Shatter, find it at TheBeautyPlace.com. The price is low and we carry various and popular shades by OPI. Love the nail design you get from trying OPI shatter? Come back and share your nail art!

Seven Must-Try Nail Colors For Fall

Here, in The Beauty Place offices, we have been busy scouring the magazines and runway shots to find the best nail colors for you to flaunt this Fall.  We carry an extensive array of nail polishes by leading lines like CHI and OPI so you will have no excuse for not flaunting your favorite nail colors this Fall.

OPI Nail Lacquer: We'll Always Have Paris

Trend #1 – We are Mad for Maroon

Although that reddish-orange you’ve used during previous autumns is still hot—and always will be this time of year—going a little deeper into red is now also haute.

Trend #2 – Hunter Green

A deep green goes great with the earth tones and neutral shades you’ll be rocking this fall—from those brown leather riding boots to that camel-colored sweater.

Trend #3 – Denim Blue

A summer shade returns for Fall.

Trend #4 – Burnt Sienna

Set aside the nudes and beiges and instead opt for a rusty orange.

Trend #5 – Plummy Purple

You can’t go wrong with purple, and for Fall opt for a rich, dark shade that will look amazing with all of the blacks and grays you’re going to be wearing this season. You can even pair it with earth tones.

Trend #6 – Metallics

If you’re the type of gal who likes to make a statement, we suggest trying a bright metallic mani.

Trend #7 – Glossy Grey

Not a traditional manicure color but a taupey grey is an oh-so-chic shade for your nails.
