Tuesday, April 9, 2013 Model In The Morning: Meet Karolina!
When we grow up, we want to be Karolina Wallace. Not only has the Poland-born, German-bred beauty graced the pages of Harpar’s Bazaar and Elle Italia (to name a few), she’s also an amazing photographer and musician. She and her equally gorgeous beau make up Radiant Reveries, the folk rock group the couple formed together last year. As you can imagine, we couldn’t wait to chat with the bohemian babe about her favorite bands, books, and the coolest place she’s ever been.
Monday, April 8, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Space Age Desert Eyes
If there’s one thing we love here at Nasty Gal, it’s an excuse to cover our face in glitter. A trip to the grocery store? Sure. An oil change? Totally. A day at in the sun at a summer festival? Well, this one’s a no-brainer.
So, to kick off our season in the sonic fields, we’ve concocted one hell of an eye look. We’re not talking glitter eyeliner or some shadow with sheen, but honest to dog glitter glued to your eyelids. Don’t be shy—we certainly never are!
Our out-of-this-world video directors at Knockout Pictures broke it all down into easy-peasy steps, but our in-house makeup master Stacey Nishimoto’s got more than a little advice on how to really master this look. Below, the exclusive unabridged version, straight from the source!

Thursday, April 4, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Knotty By Nature – A Festival Braid Guide
When we were kids, our copy of Braids and Bows ended up in the garbage—a combination of our hatred of ribbons and our boiling frustration over our utter lack of ability. These days, we’re willing to give these pretty little plaits another try. Not only have braids evolved into a cool, intergalactic art form since our embarrassing class photo days, but they also serve a real and breezy function come festival season.
To get us ready for that extreme desert heat—and stand out in a sea of coif crowns—we turned to our nearest braid babe, Alison Brislin, who cooked up this sorta sleek, sorta spacey look special for us.
