Looking for some fun beauty ideas? We've rounded up a list of tips, tricks and trends to make you date-ready.
Simple, Classy Nails
Simple, classy nails are where it's at for men. While women love trying fun nail designs, most guys think it's a tacky if you have nails covered in hearts or palm trees. Try a shade like Passion by OPI, all the rage at New York Fall 2012 Fashion Week, which you may have heard is going on right now. Also, MAC Cosmetics is customizing nail colors for a bunch of designers, like Zac Posen, for Fashion Week this year, so you should check their colors out, too. They have great matte shades.
But Go Nuts With Your Pedicure, If You Wish
While it's smarter to keep your nails simple, surprise your guy with some crazy toes this winter! Hopefully your friends and family will see them too so your artistic pedicure prowess isn't completely wasted on just your dude -- but who knows, he'll probably appreciate it! There are so many fun pedicure ideas and how-to's on

Single on Valentine's Day? Have no fear! Here are some fun things to do.
Ask a pessimist about Valentine's Day and they'll tell you it's a "Hallmark Holiday" created to stimulate the economy by encouraging gift-giving on an otherwise regular day. That's why the tradition on V-Day is to buy a significant other a gift or two. Well, if V-Day is about shopping, why not then, as an independent and single woman, treat yourself? Buy yourself that gorgeous piece of jewelry you've been coveting or a hair appointment at that expensive salon - whatever you choose, you've earned it, baby!
Your mom, your dad, your sister, your best friend, the cute guy you always see eating alone at the diner - take the money saved from not buying a Valentine's Day gift and use it to show someone else you care.
Some Negative Nancies will throw anti-Valentine's Day shindigs to prove to the world that they don't support such a "ludicrous" holiday. Not you, my single

If you've been living under a rock without a calendar and access to our website for the past week or so, you might have overlooked the fact that Valentine's Day is right around the corner.
Alas, we see your fleeting memory and raise you this-37 percent of men and 13 percent of women say their partner would be devastated if they forgot Valentine's Day (see the infographic below). In an effort to save your butt-and give you some ideas to make the day extra special for your partner-Tokii surveyed their users to find what men and women think of Cupid's special day.
The Day. February 14 is somewhat of a controversial day, if you pay attention to the criticizing cries of "commercialism!" coming from the peanut gallery. But perhaps that criticism is coming from the 52 percent of women and 16 percent of men who admit to being envious of romantic gestures they observe from others on Valentine's Day. Though it is a day of love, most advise against making the ultimate romantic gesture-a
