Upon recently taking inventory of my closet to see what I need for this coming summer, I couldn’t help but notice how devoted to certain brands I am, but I suppose we all are. As someone who does 99% of my shopping online, I tend to stick to brands that I know will fit and have a quality level that I’m happy with. And now that I’m halfway through my 30s, I think I can figure out whether or not a brand suits my life and aesthetic pretty quickly.
Based on the 11 brands I’ve singled out below, you can probably conclude that my style is on the casual side (I live in the South and work from home), and I prefer mid-range (price-wise) brands that are as classic as they are on-trend. Interestingly enough, some of these brands have been in my closet since my 20s, and I predict some will stay in my closet through my 40s. You’re probably familiar with all of these, but they’re universally adored for a reason—they’re that good.

The 24 Pedicure Colors We’re Going to Try This Summer
Summer is right around the corner, and that means sandal season, which also means it’s prime pedicure season. You probably have your go-to colors already, but why not branch out a bit this year? After more than a year of being in sweats and probably wearing no shoes at all, it might be time to shake things up. A lot of us will be able to go outside and catch up with people we haven’t seen in a while this summer (in the safest way possible, of course), so this might be the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to a pedicure and try something new.
And in case you’re in need of some inspiration, check out the colors that are on our radar for the season below.
I’m 55—Here Are 10 Things I Do Before Video Calls to Look More Photogenic
Lips (like our hands, necks, even our brows) are one of the features that can easily be forgotten but can be a dead giveaway for your age. Not that that’s a bad thing, but keeping your pout plump, shiny, and hydrated acts as a filter of sorts for lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume, which can all intensify as we get older.
Are Gel Extensions Really Bad for Your Nails? We Asked the Experts
This one was my number one burning question. After all, gel extensions have kind of a bad rap. According to Tong, though, it’s undeserved. “Many writers that are not nail professionals have spread a misconception that these products destroy your nails. This is not true. I understand that there are instances where damage can happen, but a lot of the time, it’s upkeep on the client’s part that’s not being done.”
“If you want to have gel nails, long extensions, gel extensions, acrylic extensions, sculpted acrylics, or even a simple gel manicure, you need to be about that life, meaning these types of enhancements need mindfulness and care.” Tong likens nail enhancements to hair and lash extensions in that maintenance is necessary. “You must be prepared for the care, carefulness, and mindfulness it takes to live that long nail life,” she says. “You cannot use your enhanced nails as a tool to tear open plastic wrap and so on!”
Maintenance also means returning to the salon regularly. “Enhancements need to be filled or redone every 2–4 weeks depending on how fast your nails grow. Don’t let that extension grow beyond the nail bed and wonder why the weight of it tore off your natural nail.”
Tong’s last piece of advice? Don’t pick or peel. Ever. “This is the most damaging thing you can do to yourself. Get yourself a fill when you’re due for a fill, and if you don’t want to get a fill, then have your nail professional remove the enhancement.”
