What Exactly Are SNS Nails?

by

Up until about two months ago, I never cared about what my nails looked like. I’d walk around with hangnails and chipped polish without thinking twice. To be frank, my nail beds sucked. Then, while getting my basically bi-annual manicure, my nail technician suggested that I try SNS. The only thing I had heard about ...

The Best Spring Nail Trends

What isn’t there to love about spring? The trees start to gain their fluff back, flowers begin to bloom beautifully, and both our wardrobe and accessories change.

Here at Cliché, whenever our outfits and nail color match, our day becomes a little brighter.

Deborah Lippmann Fall Collections

There’s something about Essie nail polish. Maybe it’s the way the polish goes on smoothly while giving a picturesque coat, or maybe it’s their endless selection of colors, but perhaps what I love even more is Essie’s seasonal collections that come out each year. Essie’s mantra for summer 2015 is “When it heats up, I ...
