It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind…and her nail color, but buying a bottle of nail polish remover will soon force you to flash that always-unflattering driver’s license photo at the drugstore. In an attempt to curb the production of methamphetamine, CVS implemented a new policy in New England (soon to roll out chain-wide) that requires a valid ID to purchase acetone-containing products.

Birthday girl Cara Delevingne hasn’t just impacted the fashion world in a major way, according to Vogue.co.UK an increase in online searches for the model’s name has affected Google’s algorithms.

It’s only day two of New York fashion week, but we’re going to go out on a limb and say that there’s a new nail trend brewing, and it’s got nothing to do with art. After Spring’s nothing-but-nude polish mandate, the influx of deep, dark varnishes we’ve seen over the past forty-eight hours has been that much more noticeable. At Richard Chai, Deborah Lippmann used the opportunity to preview her new-for-holiday Harem Silks from Bombay, a deep chocolate-bordeaux hybrid with a matte finish, while Butter London’s global color ambassador, Katie Hughes, used the Brit brand’s similarly hued, albeit glossy, La Moss backstage at Dannijo. Then, at BCBG, Lubov Azria’s bohemian babes got two coats of OPI’s Black Onyx lacquer with a semimatte top coat (because nobody loves a slick of edgy black nail polish like the beanie-wearing set). Could this signal an end to the manicure madness and a return to more classic, seasonal colors? We’ve got three more weeks to find out.

Mmmm. [NYDN]
