Not all manicures are winners. I’m guessing that most of the stuff you might read about nail art just show you the winners. But this is a tale of unrequited love. I love what some nail artists I follow on Instagram have done with individually placing large glitter pieces in their nail art. I love the idea of individual glitter, and I really love the price since I’ve acquired all of my little pots of glitter at Daiso Japan for $1.50 for a 3-pack. It does not love me.Read More
BlogHer just announced their next conference, BlogHer PRO ’14. It will take place December 3 & 4 in Redwood City. I had a good time attending BlogHer ’14 down in San Jose, but I was left wanting more take-home, actionable items that I could use to build my blog. This conference seems to focus more on that aspect of blogging. Most notably, it promises that I will walk away with a new, professional media kit. This is something I know I need, and would love to have.Read More
A few weeks ago I made my triumphant return to New York City to attend and speak at Affiliate Summit East 2014. Since I’ve been blogging about my nails for a little over a year now, and of course sharing all of those posts to Facebook, a lot of my industry colleagues have taken notice that I have a penchant for nail art and started asking me how I was going to do my nails.

Things look different around here at TrishaLyn.com (unless you’re reading this through a feed reader, then things are pretty much the same…)! I finally found a new theme from the fine folks at Elegant Themes that I’m happy with. It’s simple, but I like the top navigation and right hand sidebar WAY better than everything being on the left. I don’t know, it just seems more classic this way!Read More
I looked far & wide for these damn things! Seriously, years ago, maybe when I was still in college (yikes), Sally Hansen came out with what they called Chrome Nail Makeup. I still have a few bottles as I love the high-metallic finish. I wish they were even MORE metallic and reflective, like those pins you see floating around of mirror-finish nails, but alas, I don’t think that’s possible short of electroplating my nails. When I saw that Sally Hansen had resurrected this trend this summer, I was so excited! However, apparently I was not yet excited enough to run to the store for them.
This became a problem.Read More
For my June 2014 Julep Maven Box, I opted in for the Julep Three Wishes Collection. I loved the colors when viewing them online, and I was even happier with them in person. The three I opted for as an It Girl were Julep Savoy (an antique gold chrome), Julep Phia (an orchid iridescent chrome), and Julep Jennine (a full-coverage borealis blue stardust). The Stardust polishes are Julep’s answer to the textured polish craze, providing a matte glitter that gives just enough sparkle.Read More
