She's known for her pop-punk hits and even as a clothing designer, and now Avril Lavigne has channeled her creative spirit into nail art. Starting this April, the singer will launch a limited-edition collection with the Sally Hansen Salon Effects brand. And in true Avril fashion, the polish strips ($10 each), which will feature 12 different designs, will include rocker-chic patterns like tiny skulls and leopard print.
"It's supercool because the designs that I came up with are my personal style and vibe — they're rock 'n' roll and fun and bright and colorful. You have sparkles and little stars — they are cute," Avril explained in an interview with WWD. Avril has already ventured into the beauty business with the launches of fragrances Black Star, Wild Rose, and Forbidden Rose, so what can we expect next from the star? Avril quipped, "I think it would be cool to do hair color."
Bright colors such as coral will be hot for Spring, according to master manicurist Jin Soon Choi.

Photographers are all abuzz about Lytro, a forthcoming light field camera that allows you to change the focal point of any given photo — after it's already been taken. If it lives up to its potential, it's pretty much going to revolutionize digital photography. (You know how you get those photos that would be perfect if only they weren't so fuzzy? Lytro lets you fix that.) Since I am an amateur photographer who messes up her focus all the time, this is very exciting.
What does this have to do with beauty? Well, Lytro photographer Eric Cheng just released a new set of photographs that show off the camera's abilities, and they star none other than model Coco Rocha. Look closely at her herringbone nails; she appears to be wearing Sally Hansen Salon Effects. And that gives me an idea: skip salon manicures by going for these drugstore finds, then put the savings toward a Lytro when it's on the market.
If there's one nail product we're crazy about these days, it's Sally Hansen Salon Effects. These klutz-proof nail strips take less than 10 minutes to apply, require no drying time, and last for ages. Watch this video to see the process in action, and read our Sally Hansen Salon Effects review for more information.
Last week, I was singing the praises of Sally Hansen's Salon Effects stick-on nails in Misbehave, a gold shade with a black fishnet stocking pattern. But, was I singing its praises after wearing them around for a week? As promised, find out how well they wore when you keep reading.
Sally Hansen recently launched Nail Effects, precut, stick-on nails in varying colors and patterns. But these aren't your ordinary hard and plasticy fake nails. Nope, these adhesives are thin and stretchy, molding to the shape of your natural nail. And after admiring the eye-catching Misbehaved pattern ($9) on a DailyCandy writer, I knew I had to give them a try.
At around $9 a pop, depending where you get them, these temporary nail designs aren't exactly cheap. They're supposed to last for up to 10 days, so check back later for my report on the eventual wear and tear. But after having them on for just a few hours, I'm surprised at just how pretty a gold-and-black fishnet-stocking manicure can be. See what else I thought when you read more.
If you could capture the essence of denim, what would it smell like? For Esprit, it would include notes like pomegranate, tiaré flower, peony, vanilla bean, white patchouli, and crystal musk, as featured in its new scent, Esprit Jeans Style For Her. For Diesel, which plans to launch Fuel For Life Homme Denim in June, it would be a woody citrus juice featuring raspberry, citrus, lavender, and dry wood.
But the denim-inspired beauty trend is not just limited to fragrance. Brands from MAC to Bobbi Brown to Lipstick Queen all have products with jeans as the overlying theme. And for something truly fun, you can even wear your denim on your nails with Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in Skinny Jeans ($10). As always, click on any of the images above for more details.

So what kind of gorgeousness should you be expecting to see on the most fashionable fingers in the next few months? To see 10 beautiful shades, just keep reading.
Cool news from today's Prabal Gurung show: the buzzed-about designer is teaming with Sally Hansen for a line of nail polish. The six limited-edition shades, made to complement his new collection, debuted today. "Prabal likes to have simple accents," said master manicurist Jin Soon Choi. "He doesn't want to overdo it." For the show, she painted nails with Without a Stitch (a nude shimmer) followed by a thin stripe of Casting Call (a strawberry mango shade). "It's very sophisticated and modern," she said. Look for the six limited-edition shades to debut in spring 2011.
