And pedicures! Nail polish and nail care sales increased by 57% over the last year!
"Nail color continues to explode in popularity at both color extremes-black for the bolder and pink for the softer touch," says Karen Grant, a beauty bigwig at market research firm NPD Group.
In other words, whether you're goth (Chanel "Vamp!") or girly (OPI "Italian Love Affair!") you have several poisons to pick from.
RGB, one of my favorite new-ish polish lines, was founded by the incredibly stylish Gina Carney (And I'm serious about the stylish thing-the girl has more Margiela than Barneys). "We don't usually see ourselves unless we are looking in the mirror-hands are the exception," says Carney. "I need to see neat hands with color that fits my style and mood. I view nails as another fashion accessory-the same way you'd wear a bracelet or a ring."
I'd have to agree. Just like a good haircut, a fresh manicure and pedicure is often the perfect touch.

Believe it or not, guys are getting into stilettos.
High heels-particularly the iconic stiletto-are the epitome of sexiness and femininity. But why? Perhaps we're too quick to assign certain shoe styles to certain genders. Especially given the emergence of an elite group of men who take pleasure in wearing exquisite women's shoes. In public.
We're not talking clear stripper heels, here. These guys prefer Fendi over Frederick's any day. You can spy these trendsetters on any street style blog. They exist in more abundance that you might believe.

One of those heel-wearing men is fashion industry insider Andrew Mukamal.
