Great At-Home Mani in Minutes

Recently I heard that the secret to producing a super-shiny manicure is all in the brush. I think I can agree with that. Rimmel London’s new Lasting Finish Professional Nail Polish ($4, ulta.com) imparts impeccable shine in just one stroke thanks to its fat, flat brush. Nevermind that this wide applicator cuts your mani time in half, but as the polish is laid down in one smooth stroke, the chances of clumping or creating streaks is dramatically decreased.

Manchas, Be Gone!

I’ve gotten two bad sunburns in my life. The first was when I was 13 years old, vacationing with my family in Puerto Rico. I got so sunburned the belly chain I was wearing felt like a belt of daggers on my red, inflamed skin. (And yes, I wore a belly chain. Whatever, it was cool back in the 90s!) The second was when I was 22, on vacation in Miami with friends. I got so sunburned I passed out that night and woke up with a blister on my forehead.

Is Your Man a Dove Man?

I brought home a bottle of Dove Men+Care Body & Face Wash, Extra Fresh($6, drugstore.com) a few weeks back and set it gingerly on the side of my bathtub. Would my man use it? From my experience, if soap doesn’t come in the form of a bar, some guys tend to back away. Is it because they fear the unknown? Is it because liquid soap is harder to distribute without the aid of a pink pouf? Who knows?
