Today we want to give you tips on how to find the best nail salons in your city. Every year in the United States, close to $8.5 billion is spent on nail salon services. There’s no getting around the fact that the nail salon industry is huge, and for good reason!
People love to keep their nails looking a cut above. It shows special dedication to one’s appearance and can be one more way to express your personal sense of style.
If you’ve been using the same nail salon for a long time, or are looking for your first nail salon, then it’s important that you find the best options available near you. Read on to learn all about how you can find the highest quality nail salons in your area!
One of the best ways to find candidates for your new nail salon home is to ask around. One of the most powerful things about recommendations from people you know is that they know what you’re looking for and can tailor their suggestions to your needs.
If a member of your friend circle or an acquaintance in your community has always had admirable nails, your solution may be as easy as asking them how they get them!
Make Some New Community Connections
If your community doesn’t have the expertise you’re looking for, you can look elsewhere. Communities form on the internet and in many cities where people exchange tips and advice. Take a look at Facebook groups and Reddit. You might find a group dedicated to exactly the thing you want to learn about.
On Reddit, you can find many groups discussing nail care, and you may also find a group dedicated to your own city. Once you’ve found a group that discusses nail salons or your city, the search bar can be a gold mine of information. Type in what you’re looking for and there’s a good chance you’ll find pages of people who have asked the same thing!
A community is also a great resource because you can ask clarifying questions and express exactly what you’re looking for. On the other hand, online reviews of nail salons have their place as well.
A quick google search of nail salons in your area may show you the ratings that past customers have given each salon. If you don’t have any contact who can help, these ratings can be an adequate substitute.
Talk to Members of Related Communities
The same people interested in the perfect manicure or pedicure will probably also be interested in other beauty care. The salons in your city may be intimately known by people at the hairdressers.
Find other beauty centers of your city and you’re bound to find someone who can help you find what you’re looking for. Sometimes, when you’re looking for a nail salon, it’s easier to rely on the expertise of those who have already done the research for you.

While summer hasn’t officially ended just yet, we at Cliché already have fall manicures on the brain. Although spring pastels and vibrant summer pedis are all well and good, it’s the dark lacquers I know and love. Navy, black, and maroon have been my go-to polishes of choice since my punk rock days in high school, so it was love at first sight when I laid eyes on Deborah Lippman’s newest fall collections, Very Berry and After Midnight.
The Very Berry Collection is the perfect transition from summer to fall. If you’re still feeling the romantic reds of summer, this collection has a wide range of shades to keep that spirit alive (as if the packaging couldn’t do that alone!). Inside, you’ll find the following shades: “Strawberry Fields Forever, a full coverage bright strawberry crème; Cranberry Kiss, a crisp cranberry crème; Raspberry Jam, a full coverage ripened raspberry crème; Mulberry’s Dream, a full coverage rick mulberry crème; Cherries Jubilee, a full coverage black cherry crème; and Boys N Berries, a full coverage deep boysenberry crème.” Each shade is opaque and goes on smooth for a long-lasting, rich manicure.
Now, the After Midnight Collection in their gel lab pro formula is just as rich, but is geared more towards the darkening, mysterious days of fall. Snuggle up with the following shades: “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, a smoke blue crème; After Midnight, a dark indigo crème; Wild Thing, a deep peacock crème; Love Hangover, a plum mauve crème; All Night Long, a black base with bronze shimmer; and Out of the Woods, a dark chocolate crème.”
Each shade of the After Midnight Collection retails for $20 each, and the Very Berry Collection is sold as a whole for $36. Get them at www.deborahlippmann.com.
At Cliché, you know we are always two steps ahead of everything—and this is especially true when it comes to sharing the latest trends of the upcoming season. Now, despite it still being chilly, snowy, and downright weather crazy over on the East Coast, that doesn’t mean we aren’t in the know about what spring has in store for us. In fact, it’s all we’ve got our minds on. Spring can’t come any quicker for any of us, can it? Well, with Deborah Lippmann’s Spring 2016 Collection, it sure can. The newest line from this mani/pedi lovin’ brand is filled with beautiful pastels and fun, eye-catching hues. Give your nails a playful, fresh, and colorful look with any of Deborah Lippmann’s Spring 2016 collections—they’ll look so good that even the spring blooms are sure to grow with envy.
Sweets For My Sweet If a tea party could be turned into a nail polish collection, then Lippman’s Sweets For My Sweet would be it. The 6-piece collection features opaque and candy-colored polishes in a cotton candy package design you’re guaranteed to love. With nail polishes titled Sugar, a creamsicle orange shade, and Candy Girl, a pastel pink hue, your nails will be as scrumptious as any dessert served during afternoon tea. Available for purchase retailing at $34.
Gel Lab Pro Colors: Afternoon Delight Picture yourself lying in a field full greenery during the springtime—that blissful moment is the inspiration for Lippmann’s Afternoon Delight collection. Made up of four new shades from the brand, each polish is formulated with Lippmann’s innovative Gel Lab PRO formula that provides you with healthy, shiny nails that are similar to gel formulations. With the line’s new advanced contour brush, you’ll be guaranteed a flawless application from any of the polishes like The Pleasure Principle, a lilac creme color. Available for purchase retailing at $20 each.
Limited Edition: Life’s A Beach Fun in the sun may be quite a time away for some of us, but that isn’t stopping Lippmann from being our dose of sunshine. Lippman’s Life’s A Beach polishes are vibrant, poppy shades that channel cool summer vibes spent at the beach. The limited edition collection includes two shades: The Tide Is High, a bright blue, and Break 4 Love, a bubblegum neon pink. Available for purchase April 2016 for $17.

Hello, my blushing beauty babes! Our favorite time of year has made its appearance once again as we’ve snuggled into cozy sweaters with steaming mugs of hot cocoa. Amongst the endless array of holiday decorations, the smell of pine, and peppermint-flavored goods, the beauty world has gone into a frenzy with deals and bargains galore. We at Cliché know how exciting and terrifying shopping can be during the holidays, so just like Santa has a list to keep everything in check, we’re more than glad to help with a shopping guide of our very own. For all of you beauty lovers out there, move the old school idea of stocking stuffers to the side and make room for bags of beauty topped off with a bow. From glittery nail polishes to rich colored lippies, I’ve looked high and low for the best and most adorable makeup bag “stuffers” available. This year, give beauty aficionados (or yourself!) a lovely makeup bag filled with goodies that can be used year-round. Don’t forget to check your list twice! Happy holiday shopping, beauts!
A.) It’s in the shape of a cuddly panda. B.) It’s a Korean beauty product, which means you know anyone’s hands will be totally covered throughout the winter season with this product. They’ll feel just as soft as panda fur!
During the recent spring 2015 runway collections, beauty trends featured refreshing looks with flashes of color and the au naturale. The free spirit was definitely present and an inspiration in many of these looks from modern-day hippie with romantic vibes to biker chick with an edge. It is all about experimenting with your inner self this spring and stepping into a style you never have tried before. Add a touch of color to your eyes. Stand out with plum-tinted lips. Kick up your wing liner with the perfect line. Show us that natural beauty you have with only hints of blush or polish. Less is more and spring is a sure signifier of that through all of its natural beauty, just like you. Are you ready for this gorgeous season? I know I am! Try something a bit different with these stunning beauty trends that are all about flaunting what you already have. Sugar Plum We’re stepping outside of the classic box this season with an introduction to the plum shade—one that will definitely become your classic in spring. This attractive shade can easily be built up or down. Plum this season was even featured on the eyes by smudging lip products softly across the lids as eyeshadows. Who would’ve thought?! The shade is a soft, yet bold color that will last perfectly throughout the day without taking up too much attention.

That Red Lip Of course the red lip isn’t going anywhere this season, but its array of shades has definitely widened our beauty horizons. With orange undertones, the red lip has toned it down a notch into a color that can be worn all day and night. Talk about an easy transition! For that classic red lip that we love on Taylor Swift, line your lips first before filling them in with your favorite shade of red. Everything will be built into that perfect red statement that is bold everywhere you go.
(Tom Ford in Flame $50, shop.nordstrom.com)
Textured Touch Put those hot hair tools away during this spring season and rock what your momma gave you! Let your natural hair go with the wind—literally. Say no more to curling and straightening, at least for this season. Apply hair products from Redken or Tresemmé that will emphasize the natural texture in your hair. For a quick ‘do without the hassle in the morning, get a head start at night; add your favorite texturizing product, split your hair into two braids, and then let free in the morning. You’ll be left with soft waves that will last even days later!
The Perfect Black Lines Black liner is a definite go-to for all of us, ladies. Am I right? It’s time to really put our lining skills to the test throughout the spring season—let’s aim for that perfect black line. Now we know there is no such thing as perfect, but with the darkest shade of black eyeliner, it comes close. Try one from the brands Butter London or Shiseido and apply in a thick manner instead of a thin line. You’ll create a dramatic and dark look just right for a night out.
Bare Natural Show some bare-faced skin and nails in these blooming months. Let your natural self shine through with hints of rose blush and parts of your nails painted. Instead of getting done up fully, use less than usual—a light brush of bronzer, a pat of cream blush, and a hint of highlighter or concealer. You’ll create a fresh-faced look that will not only look good, but feel good as well. It’s all about becoming extremely comfortable in your own skin, gals. What better way to love yourself? For your nails, opt for painting them in half moons with a soft shade or accenting them with a stripe of color. Let the rest of your nail be bare to create a blank space—yes, like the Taylor Swift song. Except literally.

Here at Cliché, we always have your nails covered with the latest and greatest nail products out there. So when Void Beauty (www.voidbeauty.com), an eco-friendly nail lacquer line, came across our path we couldn’t wait to share this innovative and modern brand. Void Beauty’s unique goal is to create a cruelty-free and vegan-friendly line of nail lacquers made with great quality and in superb shades. Their motto, “Beauty doesn’t have to to be toxic,” sums up just what this brand is all about in a nutshell—or nail polish bottle to be exact.
Founder Patrice Anderson was inspired to create such a line of nail polishes from her love of of mani-pedis and good and organic things. Her inspiration led to the creation of polishes that are certified green and 5-free, meaning that there is no formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Camphor, or Formaldehyde Resin in the ingredients. Instead, the polishes are made with just the right amount of organic ingredients to create polishes that won’t hurt your nails but will instead make them look simply gorgeous in all the right ways, of course.
Each season’s colors are influenced by its customers, so this season Void Beauty was all about rich and nourishing colors for the soul. Check out some of these beautiful polishes, but first read on as founder Patrice Anderson herself lets us in on the inspiration to this delectable brand.
Cliché: What made you want to create nail polishes that were organic? Where did you gain inspiration from? Patrice Anderson: My nails are so sensitive that I’ve always been very particular about the products that I use. I started learning more about polish ingredients. I also found that I was “color directing.” I could never find just the right hue. I wanted to add just a touch of something. I was filling a VOID, but I also wanted to make sure that our products were void of things that aren’t so good for us. How do you go about creating these polishes? What is your creative process for the names, colors, etc.? I wanted the names to be fun and memorable, nothing too serious. The hues remind me of places that I’ve visited and the vibrant hues that you’ll see in those countries or cities or even people. What are your favorites out of the polishes you have created? Name a must-have for the holidays for our readers! Rise & Shine is one of my favorites. It’s something that my mom and grandmother would say to us every morning. A must-have color for the holidays and one that I absolutely love is Silver Lining. I’ve been wearing it periodically with Ride or Die Red. Any hopes/dreams/New Year’s resolutions for Void Beauty in the New Year? Absolutely. We’re exploring new hues. We’ve also been testing some cuticle treatments.

Get your nails ready for the holidays with some sparkle and shine as bright as your Christmas lights! It’s all about the glam and glitz this season, and with the help of the stunning Holidaze and Nue collection nail sets from Delush Polish (delushpolish.com), your nails will be just as fabulous as you. From frosted sparkles that remind us of falling snowflakes to golden sparkles that are just perfect for New Year’s Eve, these holiday collections are the ultimate nail sets you’ll need for any and every occasion this winter. The inventive mind of Adrianna Gonzalez-Shreeve, Owner and Creative Director at Delush Polish, brought these gorgeous goodies to life. Below we get to know more about these delightful collections you’ll definitely want on your Christmas wish list. Cliché: What was your vision for this season’s holiday collection? Adrianna Gonzalez-Shreeve: Christmas is always such a fun holiday to design for! For this winter collection, I tried to put a spin on the traditional shades that are associated with this time of year. I wanted to create something timeless, yet trendy for the season. There is a bit of everything in this collection: some glitz and glamour, lush forest greens amongst captivating glitter medleys, and toppers. Do you have a favorite out of them? If so, which and why? That’s a tough question because I’m always in the lab making something new and end up falling for the latest shade I make! However, I really love glitter-filled jellies. I love the depth they evoke; they are definitely a conversation starter. What do you believe makes your polishes so eye-catching and special? Delush Polish offers more than just beautiful colors; we offer an array of unique yet wearable color combinations. Our polishes have been designed to provide long-lasting, quick drying, and most importantly, effortless manicures that result in a professional finish. We have become known for our multi-dimensional tones and captivating glitter polishes, as well as our premium hand-blended 5-Free formula that is proudly free of formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, camphor, and formaldehyde resin. How do you go about creating new polishes? Where do you gather inspiration? I strive to create unique shades with every collection, and I always want to challenge myself to do something fresh and unexpected. Inspiration really does strike at any time. Being a graphic designer by trade, I’ve always been in tune with my creative side and tend to look at the world from a different perspective.
For “Fleece Navidad,” inspiration came from the excitement that many of us have when it’s time to decorate the Christmas tree. I decided to bottle that up and translate it into a wearable look for your nails! Flashes of red, green, and gold glitters are reminiscent of ornaments suspended in a lush forest green jelly with stars that symbolize the tree topper for that finishing touch. We absolutely love the names you come up with for your polishes! How do you go about it? Would you believe sometimes that this is one of the hardest things to do? I always start with associating words to the theme or the color itself. With the last collection, it was heavily inspired by one of my favorite TV shows and I focused on key moments and characters in each season. I also always like to play on words when naming polishes; that’s how polishes like “Orchid Situation” and “Shake Your Teal Feather” came to be! In addition I often host naming competitions, and I invite my customers who have won the opportunity into the creative process of naming colors. My customers play an integral role in the line; they impact what happens at Delush, and their contribution matters. Do you have any tips on how to create the ultimate D.I.Y. home manicure with Delush Polish? Absolutely! Sadly, I don’t always have time to visit the nail salon. As a result, I often find myself with little to no time, so home manicures are great alternatives!
It’s all about the prep work! Begin by using a cotton pad and nail polish remover to remove your previous manicure. Make sure to wash your hands in warm soapy water to remove any traces of nail polish remover.
Next, reshape nails using Delush’s Crystal Glass Nail File. Thanks to its everlasting abrasive surface, the fine grit helps minimize flaking and splitting.
Using Blue Cross Cuticle remover and a cuticle pusher, gently push back your cuticles. Follow with metal cuticle nippers to then gently remove the free edge. Make sure to not cut into the cuticle.
Apply a base coat as this will prevent staining, extend the life of your manicure, and create an even surface to adhere to.
Now for the fun part! Choose your favorite Delush Polish and polish your nails! Use a small paint brush and dip in nail polish remover to remove any polish you may have gotten on your fingers.
Use a top coat to seal in all that hard work, and once your manicure is completely dry, use your favorite lotion to massage hands and nails so they stay hydrated and happy!
Perhaps the only thing I love more than getting gifts is giving them — there’s just something so special about carefully picking out the perfect gift for someone, wrapping it all up, presenting it to them, and watching their face light up. The holidays should always be about giving, and with our ultimate holiday gift guide ranging from the best beauty products, functional accessories, and treats, we hope it’s that much easier to discover the perfect gift for that special someone this holiday season! (Or, hey, forget giving: treat yo’self.)
Adea: Everyday Luxury
Let’s start with something sexy, shall we? The holiday aren’t only about giving material things, but also giving a little love! With Adea’s Everyday Luxury collection, you can pick out a range of different underwear for that special woman (or friend or sister!) in your life, from friendly layering pieces (think cotton bodysuits and turtlenecks) to something a little sexier, like low-rise lace thongs and a red luxe chemise. Want a gift that’s somewhere in the middle? We recommend this silky soft slip, which hugs every curve and is the perfect layering piece for chillier weather! Go on — spoil her.
