We’re big fans of Birchbox, a startup that sends women deliveries of high-end beauty samples every month. (Makeup in the mail? Yes, please!). In addition to their monthly subscription service, they also have an online shop and info-packed magazine, blog, and YouTube channel. We like their helpful videos so much that we’ll be featuring one here on TheGloss each week.

Since most people don’t moonlight as pro nail artists, it’s no wonder that nail strips are all the rage. The easiest way ever to get cool, funky designs on your digits, these genius appliques also last a lot longer than regular polish manicures. Best of all — they’re simple to apply. Watch this helpful Birchbox video for a step-by-step tutorial.
