Speaking of nontraditional nail news, U.K.-based varnish brand Nails Inc has partnered with Diet Coke to make a limited-edition range of shades inspired by the four fashion capitals of the world.

Bieber mania is sweeping the nation, as the teen pop sensation’s side-swept tawny bangs are becoming an adolescent haircut phenomenon.
