Clean out those toxins and say hello to a new you made mostly of cheese.

Hey pretty young things! This party season we’re goin’ pro disco–from sequins to faux furs, it’s all about the glam. To get your glitter lookin’ killer, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to dustin’ those disco lids, a la Nasty Gal’s in-house eye-candy buffs. See ya on the dance floor…
Step 1: Apply your foundation and give yourself a nice even base to start with.
Step 2: Using a fine-tipped brush so you have lots of control, apply a metallic cream eyeshadow. Follow the crease of the eye, and extend the shape out into the corner in a soft ang
Holly Falcone really knows how to nail it. The NYC-based manicurist has beautified the nails of Anna Kendrick, MIA, Kristen Wiig, Lykke Li, Soko, and so many more. She stopped by our office to treat us to a custom manicure as we watched in awe. Read on to find out how to recreate her amazing metallic marble-effect nails.
Whether it’s after a morning run or a day at the beach, there’s something undeniably sexy about a little bit of sweat. And now that summer is officially here, it’s kind of hard to avoid. Of course, it’s a lot sexier to create the just-jogged-in look with moisturizer, foundation, and a little bit of lipstick. We had Work Mag EIC (and palm tattoo aficionado), Gloria Noto, teach us how to achieve the ideal level of dewy perfection, no perspiration added.
We know basics can be, well, basic, but we found three L.A. stylists who proved they can be anything but. Ashley Charbonneau, Djuna Bel, and Ashley Glorioso let us into their West Coast digs and showed us how to mix Nasty Gal pieces into their own (super stellar) wardrobe.
Not everyone can call themselves a “rock ‘n’ roll groomer,” but London-based beauty expert Lou Teasdale totally fits the bill. She kicked off her career as a hair assistant on The X Factor back in 2007, and today she styles the now-infamous boy band coifs of One Direction. An avid festival-goer herself, we thought she’d be the perfect person to gives us some insight on how to style our strands without a lot of product, tools, and, um, shower time. (Not to mention she’s releasing a “creative bible” on DIY hair and beauty called The Craft come April!) Here, Lou shows us how to conquer a 3-day sweatfest in style and—remember, ladies—“baby wipes and dry shampoo are your friends.”
We’re all about glitter this time of year, and just last week we hit you with an entire beauty look drenched in the sparkly stuff. Since New Year’s Eve is tomorrow night (!!!), we thought we’d ask the hair and makeup experts behind this photoshoot (Daniel Moon and Ashleigh Louer) how to recreate this oh-so-shimmery look.
Real talk: Lottie Stannard is really, really good at makeup. One glance at the Nasty Gal Collection Fall 2013 lookbook, and you’ll totally understand why. She managed to amp up Ana Beatriz Barros’ (already striking!) features in the freshest way possible—with a bold berry lip and glossy smoky eye. Lucky for you (and us!), we chatted up the makeup artist to get every last detail on this super modern look.
In a ideal world, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust makeup would be everyday wear, but depending on where you work, you might not be able to pull it off (here at Nasty Gal, we wouldn’t bat a well-lined eye). But since Halloween is right around the corner, and it’s the one night a year when unleashing your inner freak is not only accepted but encouraged, we tapped makeup artist extraordinaire Jen Budner to walk us through the steps for creating your own perfect lightning-strikes look.
You bought the dress, decided between dates (or not) and now you just have to perfect your look. The most fool-proof and easy way to get this done, is the classic top bun. Daniel Rishoff, hairstylist to the stars, came to NGHQ to help us achieve the absolute perfect hairdo. Read below for the easiest ways to be the babe of the ball.
Our Senior Stylist Ashley Glorioso visits the Nasty Gal blogosphere once again to teach us the tricks of the Nasty Gal Collection trade. As a Professional-Outfit-Maker, Ashley always has the down low on the must have pieces of the season. She divulges how to keep it fancy, how to dress it down, and the basics of rocking some seriously cool clothes.
