Don’t forget to get your nails ready for fun in the sun! If you can’t figure out which nails styles to rock this summer, don’t worry. Nail Expert and Custom Nail Solutions founder Katie Saxton has you covered! Katie has the scoop on the hottest Summer 2013 nail trends. According to Katie, the below nail polishes and designs will help you steal the spotlight at all the beach parties and poolside barbeques! The summer trend tips are available for your coverage with the below credit and direct link back to htp:// Credit Katie Saxton is a nail beauty and health expert and founder of CustomNailSolutions. The Custom Nail Solutions Nail System provides a perfect canvas for the below Summer 2013 nail designs. It is a revolutionary artificial nail product that gives you reusable and chemical-free custom nails that uniquely fit only your nail beds. They are thinner, stronger, and virtually indestructible. You can have lovely, natural-looking salon-style nails on your own schedule and in the comfort of your own home. 1. Coral Nail Polish: Longing to go snorkeling and coral reef diving this summer? Give your nails their own tropical mini getaway with fabulous and fun coral nail polish. Polishes in coral hues will be very popular this summer, so choose one for everyday wear. 2. Glistening Ocean Manicure: One new nail design that is showing up on hands everywhere is a teal blue manicure featuring glittery gold or silver tips. The glamorous teal hue evokes images of shimmering oceanic waves on summer beach days, and the gold or silver sparkles make the manicure perfect for a classy affair. 3. Neon Geometrics: Neon polishes will be huge this summer, and the best way to rock the trend is by choosing a dark mani with geometric crisscrossing neon lines. To do this funky nail design, paint your nails with a coat of neon orange, neon yellow, neon pink, or neon green and let dry. Then take thin pieces of tape and place them on the first nail in a geometric pattern. Paint over the nail and tape strips with two coats of dark blue, black, or dark gray, then take the tape off while the polish is still wet. Let dry then add a clear topcoat. Do this process for the rest of the nails and voilà! You have an exciting neon geometric mani that is ready to turn heads at your summer get-togethers! 4. Dark Green: Polishes in olive, emerald green, and dark green are Summer 2013’s breakout trend. These hues celebrate the pretty palm tree fronds you see on your excursions to the beach, as well as the dark green mint leaves in your favorite summer mojito! 5. Mermaid Tale Nails: This summer, glittery polishes that give your nails a shimmery “scaly” effect will be very popular. To give your nails that “mermaid’s tale” look, choose a polish like one from Deborah Lipman’s “The Mermaids” collection. 6. Lime Yellow, White, And Electric Purple Polishes: Like coral nail polish, polishes in pure white, lime yellow, and vibrant purple will be major breakout hues this summer. These funky and unique polish choices are versatile; they can be worn on a casual day at the beach or paired with your fave black cocktail dress for a summer night out on the town! 7. Bold Textured Nails: “Bloody” vampire-esque tips were huge in Spring 2013, and new brave manicures will

NAIL TRENDS...CONT. also be a major Summer 2013 trend. Amazing new “textured” nail designs are popular this summer season, with manicurists employing fabulous new finishes like leather, crocodile, and speckled bird’s eggs. Nail polish companies are also creating fascinating and unusual effects in a bottle, with the latest one being polish that imparts a concrete-like finish on your nails. Another trick to keep your nails distinctive and bold is to use dark colors, red and burgundy, or metallics. Combine all of theses colors in one manicure for a standout design that’ll bring you many compliments. 8. Multi-Colored Polka Dots: On hot summer days, who doesn’t love yummy ice cream or frozen yogurt coated with colorful candy sprinkles? Celebrate this tasty summer tradition with a cute and stylish multi-colored polka-dot manicure! Paint your nails a vanilla white and let dry, then, using a toothpick, paint little “sprinkle” dots all over each nail using different colored polishes. Let dry then add a clear topcoat to complete the look. 9. Unique Nail Decals, Stickers, and Kits: Nail decals have been around for a while; however, it’s not just about adding a simple sticker in your mani anymore. Now, the more elements you add to your nails, the better. Kits now have leather, paper, colored stones, studs, glitter, feathers, and small pearls. Remember, if you’re doing a lot with your nails, choose a minimalist look for your attire. 10. New Nail Shapes: Choose a fresh new nail shape this summer to give your nails the illusion of length. Unique nail styles like almond and oval will set you apart from the crowd and help you steal the spotlight everywhere you go this summer. New colors, finishes, and nail shapes are making their way onto the hands of trendy ladies everywhere this Summer 2013 season. Why not switch it up and try a new look this summer?

Book Explores North Carolina and the Leading Ladies Founder and Autho r American Civil War (1860-1865) Publishes New Self-Help Book “Blood and War at my Doorstep” by author Brenda Chambers McKean is an informative book about the plight of North Carolina citizens during the Civil War due to the blockade, slavery, starvation, conscription, taxation, thievery, shortages, the enemy, and riots TIMBERLAKE, N.C. – (Release Date TBD) – Research has proven that stories and information on the American Civil War never dies but grows. But how much do people know about this historical event? Inspired by her desire to let people know the true incidents of the Civil War written by the participants of North Carolina, author Brenda Chambers McKean pens Blood and War at my Doorstep. This revealing book will let the readers know that the war wasn’t merely about generals and battles, but also about everyone who lived during that time period regardless of sex, race and age. A product of more or less 20 years of research on 19th century history of the United States of America, Blood and War at my Doorstep is a historical revelation of North Carolina citizens’ plight during the Civil War. The book reveals that the soldiers were not the only ones marching into the battlefields, the women also worked themselves into “patriotic exhaustion” through Aid Societies. Civilians with different means of support from the lower class to the plantation mistress also made their brave contributions by pointing out to the government cases of blockade, slavery, starvation, conscription, taxation, thievery, shortages, the enemy, and riots. In this book, McKean bares the truth that never before had so many died due to guerilla warfare, starving women with weapons stormed the merchant or warehouses in search for food and others turned to smuggling, spying and other significant exploits. Excerpt from Blood and War at my Doorstep: The Little Mills Ladies’ Aid Society published a list of ladies’ names in the newspaper and what they had contributed for the war effort. Among them was Hattie, a servant of Mrs. L.S. Powell. Hattie contributed a linen blanket, a roll of bandages, and a pair of gloves. Fannie, a servant, who belonged to Mrs. C.A. Patterson, gave freely a small box of sage. It was not unusual for servants or slaves to help with equipping the military. In Blood and War at my Doorstep, McKean has written a timely book—published in time of the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War which is celebrated over a five-year period now—that also provides information from period newspapers, as well as mostly unpublished letters, telling their stories. This book will allow the readers to learn more of what really happened on the home front during the war.

Nancy, Please tells the story of Paul, a young, gifted, and aimless Yale University student who has just moved in with his girlfriend and is struggling to complete his dissertation before embarking on a career in academia. There’s just one snag: as Paul is unpacking his belongings, he discovers that he has left something behind, and only his obstinate and casually sinister former roommate, Nancy, can give it back to him. Paul contacts Nancy, but she will not cooperate and proceeds to thwart Paul’s clumsy and increasingly frantic efforts to retrieve his property. What should be the simplest of errands becomes intolerably difficult. His annoyance turns to rage and then to obsession. As Paul becomes increasingly consumed with Nancy, he begins to unravel, and his life becomes much, much worse before it gets better.
