NCLA nail wraps are so easy , because not only do they come with plenty of wraps (in case you mess up) but they also include a full size nail file, and complete instructions. The only thing else you need is some clear nail polish!

1.Paint your nails with clear nail polish and let it dry completely.

2. Choose the right size nail wrap for one nail at a time and apply. (I found I needed to step up one size for most of my nails, and you can sort of stretch the width of each nail wrap before applying, if you need to.) Start at the cuticle and smooth over your nail, working out any bubbles. Use the nail file to file off the excess tip, using gentle downward motions.

3. Finish with one or two more coats of clear polish. Let it dry, and you’re done!

BeautyWhite Eyes: A Stunning Look for Summer

When the weather lightens up it’s time to brighten up your beauty routine, and this year we’re taking tips straight from the runway. White eyes are a popular pick for summer, but you could use this stunning style as a snowy look for winter and the holiday season, too. A swipe of light-colored eye shadow paired with a bright white or silver eye liner is the way to go here, and be sure to highlight the inner corners of the eye to get that truly mesmerizing gaze. For a complete how-to check out this eye brightening tutorial.

FashionCutout Fashion Trend at the CFDA Awards 2013

Obviously it’s imperative to look your best at the awards ceremony known as the “Oscars of Fashion”, but I was personally surprised by how prevalent the cutout fashion trend proved to be! Sexy cutouts have been an obsession for us here at LuLu*s, and it’s so nice to see them showing up on the fashion all-stars at the CFDA Awards. When you see images like the one below of supermodel Erin Wasson just killing it in a white cutout gown by Alexander Wang, or Karlie Kloss followed by design duo Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie of Cushnie et Ochs, it’s pretty apparent that cutouts are where it’s at!
