As much as we love nail art, we’re better at admiring designs than coming up with them ourselves. That’s why we’ve enlisted Anna Norman, the smarty pants behind Glitter, She Wrote, to be a regular contributor. Every Monday, she’ll be sharing her latest lacquer inspiration—you won’t be satisfied with plain ol’ polish again.
I’m all about New Year’s Resolutions this year. In addition to the rest of my list (eat more greens, run a half marathon, tidy up my apartment each night), I’m adding a few beauty-related goals for 2013. I put my nails through a lot during the year, so it’s time to give them a little TLC. Here are three things I’m doing this year to make it up to my fingers:
In the spirit of New Year’s Day, this week’s reading list all about resolutions (plus one fantastic ‘Best of Beauty’ list)! Even if you aren’t the resolution-making type, you can get motivated by these smart lists.
You already know we took a lot of inspiration for our own resolutions from Well & Good NYC. Check out their resolutions to go on a yoga retreat and try new holistic therapies this year.
Designers: they’re just like us! Refinery 29 put together a list of designer resolutions and they’re surprisingly easy to relate to. We especially love Lynne Hiriak’s resolutions to wear more high heels so she can kiss taller guys and to keep her fridge always stocked with bubbly—amazing!
Allure’s editors are all about having a prettier year in 2011. Whether they’re starting an anti-aging routine or busting out of a hair rut they’ll be doing it in style.
Style.com’s Beauty Counter has a retrospective of backstage beauty in 2010. The shots are stunning and there are plenty of ideas for experimenting with new colors and techniques in the new year.
And finally, The Frisky has a great list of 10 resolutions NOT to make. These are spot-on (not to mention funny). This year we resolve not to make any bad resolutions!
See you in 2011!
