Singer Demi Lovato just became the latest celebrity to go barefaced on the Internet and she looks absolutely stunning, freckles and all. On Wednesday, she tweeted the above photo out with the following message for her nearly 13 million followers: “Ladies, be brave today.. take off your make-up and stop using those filters!! WE are beautiful!!! ❤” Immediately thousands of people replied with encouraging comments and over 66,000 people retweeted her original message and photo. Demi responded in kind by retweeting several other people’s makeup-free photos and complimented many more of them on their natural beauty.
Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every Thursday for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.

I absolutely adore red carpet pre-awards show coverage because I love to check out what celebs are wearing, especially on their nails. This past Sunday, I was glued to my TV for MTV’s annual Video Music Awards, and luckily the stars did not disappoint with their fashion or their manicures. From Katy Perry’s intricate design that perfectly matched her outfit to Snooki’s glittery fan-like tips, I was able to take a close up look at the best accessories of the evening on BellaSugar’s awesomely comprehensive roundup.
