Inkbox is the edgy Toronto-based brand behind the temporary tattoos you’ve seen all over Instagram, and now their artwork has found a new canvas: your nails. With this venture, Inkbox breaks out into beauty with eight tattoo-inspired nail art designs. With the same ease of application you get with the brand’s DIY temporary tattoos, these self-applied nail strips can be worn on their own or layered over regular nail polish or an acrylic finish. And don’t worry about durability, these designs were made with file-forming polymer for up to two weeks of wear.

Since 1977, we’ve been spellbound by the intoxicating scent of YSL Beauty’s Opium fragrance and each alluring version that has followed since. In 2023, the brand expands upon the signature perfume once more with Black Opium Le Parfum, its most intense scent profile yet. Overflowing with vanilla notes, a coffee accord, and a floral white bouquet aroma at its heart, everything we love about the iconic Black Opium fragrance has been dialled up to formulate Le Parfum. Encapsulating the aura of YSL cool girls like Zoë Kravitz, Black Opium’s OG glitter bottle gets a glossy black vinyl makeover to house the new fragrance.
