New OPI Texas Lone Star Collection

The new Texas Lone Star Collection has been inspired by the fashion trends on the runway; where white is the new black and brightly coloured botanical prints, relaxed trousers and jackets, fuller and longer skirts have become the new fashion genre.

The Texas Lone Star Collection is unique in its focus on different textures – this colour story contains cremes, sparkly polishes and jellies all in one fun range.

PIC: Katy Perry is the latest star to join the ‘Stiletto Nail’ trend!

Katy Perry is the latest celebrity to be seen sporting the ‘Stiletto Nail’ trend! She tweeted the picture above, along with: “Nails for the day… This took 4ever to type.”

The long, tapered and sharpened nails are becoming increasingly popular amongst celebs, with fans like Rihanna, Fergie and now Katy Perry!

“It’s a very dramatic,” Irene Nahon, owner of the FiFi Nail Salon in midtown Manhattan told the News. “It’s definitely a hot look. Not for the conservative or for the office.”

Not all nail salons in the city will know exactly what a “stiletto nail’ is yet but most can help you choose the length of your tip and file it down to the exact amount of pointiness you desire.

You can choose your polish or add jewels and pick any kind of wrap you like. Once the nail is set with UV gel and wrapped, your talons are permanent.

Total cost: Around $120. The most popular color? Black.

One reason women seem to like the stiletto nail is that it elongates the fingers and hand, Jamie Ahn, owner of Acqua Beauty Bar and Townhouse Spa in Manhattan told the News.

A downside? Injury.

“People have to be careful,” says Ahn. “You can really poke yourself in the eye. I’ve seen it a lot more times than you would think.”

“Men don’t seem to like the look much either,” she added.

What do you think – do you like them? I’m not a fan, personally.

Are you obsessed with the royals? Follow every move Kate Middleton makes? You’re in luck! There’s a new royal wedding-themed nail polish that you’re going to love!

This March, Butter London will release a glittery new shade – with a nod to Kate Middleton’s long-awaited nuptials – called, “No more Waity, Katie.”

The limited-edition nail laquer is grayish-blue and glitter-infused, according to Nonie Créme, Butter London’s creative director. And of course, it gives a cheeky nod to Kate’s pre-engagement nickname, “Waity Katie.”

The nail care company, a cult favorite that prides itself on selling chemical-free products, will ship the nail polish internationally. It will retail for around $22.

Pre-ordering on zuneta.com for “No More Waity, Katie” will begin in the first week of March, and the product will officially launch the second week of the month.

No word on whether or not Kate will wear the polish herself!

PS: For $22 – it better be something fantastic. I can’t imagine ever spending that much on one bottle of polish! It better glow with royalty!
