  • Five Quick Study Break Ideas To Stay Motivated!

    Let's face it: there's no more "easing into" the school year. The syllabi have been read, the tests have been scheduled and the studying is about to commence. We know all too well the the alluring (but oh-so dangerous) rabbit hole of internet and its ability to yank our productivity. But with these few study break ideas, you'll get the energy and reprieve you need without wasting time watching kitten videos! Check 'em out.

    1. Go for a walk. Even if it's just a lap around the library, get the blood flowing. We promise, not only will you feel energized, but that great thesis statement may just pop in your head mid-step!

    2. Paint your nails.Even if you're not a master manicurist, painting your nails can be the perfect combination of a soothing and a self-pampering brain break. Step away from the small print textbook, and give your pretty paws a little love.

    3. Have a snack. Trail mix and sliced apples with peanut butter are snackable gifts to the universe. Take advantage of the satisfying, stimulating, healthy snacks. Or if you're looking to reward yourself for a solid few hours of hard work, fill up your favorite mug with hot chocolate and tiny marshmallows for a perfect (almost) cold-weather treat.

    4. Buy a coloring book. Don't you miss the days when your biggest concern was coloring in the lines? Take a break with this mindless, but still creative activity.

    5. Have a dance party. Gather a few of your friends for a mental shakedown with your favorite energizing songs. If you need a little help finding some pump-up tunes, we've got a few TeenNick Top 10-approved suggestions for you.

    What will you be doing to take a break while you study? Let us know your tips and tricks in the comments!

    Halloween is less than a month away and here at TeenNick, we're looking forward to the big night by throwing it back two decades. The '90s were a magical time when the only thing orange was an iguana (or soda!) and inspirational quotes came from Uncle Tito, not Instagram.

  • Get Inspired With These Red Carpet Worthy Homecoming Looks

    Posted on 10/06/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    It's almost time for one of the great American high school traditions! Sure, Homecoming may revolve around a football game or a Homecoming King and Queen coronation at your school, but here at TeenNick Style we're all about one thing.

    Can you take a wild guess?

    When it comes to Homecoming dresses this year, we're thinking outside the box. Check out some of our favorite red-carpet worthy outfits to inspire your Homecoming look!

    SHEER GENIUS

    Can't decide whether to go high or low this year? A frock with a short skirt and sheer overlay might just be the best of both worlds. Victoria Justice topped off her skirt with a cute crop top, while Annie Clark and Supah Ninja's Gracie Dzienny went contemporary Grecian goddess in their white dresses!


    BRIGHT BLOOM

    Super-formal not your thing? Floral prints (which are totally not just for spring) take a sweet and playful spin on dressing up. Go classic like Ariana, bejeweled like Victoria or neon bright like Annie!


    NOT YOUR AVERAGE HOMECOMING

    And for a Homecoming that's anything-but-basic, try some truly alternative styles. Throw on a leather moto jacket on top of a bright mini dress or rip a page out of The Thundermans' Kira Kosarin's book and ditch the dress altogether! And finally, because fall dances sometimes require fashion and function, throw on an over-sized sweater with a pair of pumps and call it an effortless-chic day. Do you dare?

    Which of these outfits would you make your own? We want to hear all about your Homecoming outfit plans, so sound off in the comments!

  • Ten Awesomely Ridiculous Locker Decorations From Your Fave TeenNick Shows

    Posted on 08/25/2014 by Rachel1016

    This week in TeenNick Back-To-School fun, we're talking lockers. These skinny pad-locked cubbies are so special because they're the one place in all of school that you can make your own. And even though most school's policies would never allow the extreme locker makeover we all deserve, we can't help but get totally inspired by these out-of-this-world decorations from shows like Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, Victorious! and iCarly. Check 'em out!

    SHE NOSE WHAT'S UP

    Locker Decorations

    Lisa from Ned's Declassified always had the sniffles. Thankfully, her locker was well-stocked with all the remedies she could ever need.

    LOCKER EYE CANDY

    Locker Decorations

    Can't argue with Mosely's classic celeb crush-adorned locker design.

    MAKE IT SHINE

    Locker Decorations

    Some of the lockers that came out of Hollywood Arts High School on Victorious! were truly insane. I mean, look at that paint job!

    ALOHA!

    Locker Decorations

    What's that behind Andre and Beck? Oh, just a tiki hula scene and a full-on keyboard. NBD.

    ABSTRACT LOCKER

    Locker Decorations

    One word: Spoons.

    ENTER IF YOU DARE

    Locker Decorations

    Beware, there might be a haunted house in this locker.

    I CAN SEE YOUR LUNCH

    Locker Decorations

    You know, pal, your locker is your space. You do you.

    THE CAT'S MEOW

    Locker Decorations

    No one ever complained about a kitten-ified locker. Ever.

    IS THAT WHAT I THINK IT IS?

    Locker Decorations

    You may remember this was actually Ned's locker, cluttered with Post-It notes and a baby doll (from a Home Ec assignment). You'd think he'd be able to take his own advice about locker organization, riiight?

    THE ULTIMATE LOCKER

    Locker Decorations

    This. Remember when Sam and Freddy won Special Locker 239 on iCarly? We gotta say, this crazy locker takes the cake. It's the size of three (count 'em, three!) lockers and comes complete with a plasma screen and microwave. So next-level.

    Which ones are your faves? How do you kick your locker decorations up a notch? Let's hear it in the comments!

    Posted on 08/14/2014 by Kayla6548

    Unfortunately... no. In fact, it's actually time to get in the back-to-school spirit! (Yep, we said it!) But here's the thing: TeenNick back-to-school is all about getting excited to go back to class. No sighing, groaning, or any other unexplained negative noises here because we have some awesome nail art to turn those end-of-summer frowns up-side-down.

    Our girl Melissa, over at The Daily Nail definitely knows what's up! Just look at those perfectly painted pencils. Don't they make you excited to sharpen a brand new box of shiny No. 2s? We can smell the shavings all the way over here!

    BACK TO SCHOOL = BACK TO STYLE

    Nothing says "I'm ready to take on a new school year" better than a stylin' new wardrobe, but you better believe that includes a well-stocked polish pantry. Something tells us we should be taking notes from this nail art guru because her designs scream style with a side of confidence!

    ALPHABET MANI

    Talk about an over-achiever! We think this manicure deserves an A+, don't you agree? It serves as a friendly reminder to try your hardest when doing your school work and when painting your nails!

    Are you a bookworm babe? Well, next time you're about to sit down and pick up your favorite pleasure read, remember to take a glance at your nails! We love how each finger is one little part of this overall design. It'll add some flare to your afternoons spent reading and help you show off the inner you! Plus, we all know painted pinkies are key for being prepared for class.

  • Fashion Inspiration For The Last 5 Seconds of Summer!

    Posted on 08/04/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Don't let those premature "Back To School" commercials get you down, there's still plenty of summer left! And no one knows this better than the poster boys of summer themselves, Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton of 5 Seconds of Summer!

    The TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artists have taken this season by storm with their music, and we've all fallen in love with them about as much as the warm-weather vacation itself. But did you know that these boys are style taste-makers, too? Sure, they might be better known for their cute faces than their fashion, but we're sensing some serious sartorial (SAT word!) patterns. Before the days get too short, check out a few of the trends the boys have been rocking and make the best out of your last 5 Seconds of Summer!

    NOTHIN' BUT A HAIR FLIP-FLOP

    Bassist Michael Clifford is known for his chameleonic hair changes. From blonde to brown to bright green, there's no color he can't rock. So who's to say a little tonsorial switch-up isn't in your future? If it's just a little temporary neon streak, go bold with some unexpected colors.

    I'M WITH THE BAND

    The 5SOS boys are all about paying homage to the legendary bands that have influenced them, and these days you don't even have to go to a concert to nab a band tee. Head over to your local vintage shop (or your parents' closet!) and pop on a T-shirt to celebrate your favorite rockers! Extra points for 5SOS T-shirts, of course.

    HATS OFF TO YOU

    5 Seconds of Summer

    Hats might seem like a pretty obvious summer staple, but there are always new and fresh ways to shield the summer rays. Take it from Ashton and Calum! Pork pie hats or snap backs, a topper is a great way to upgrade your ensemble. But the question remains... Are you brave enough to rock a beanie in August?

    DON'T MEAN TO CUT YOU OFF...

    Late-summer temperatures can be brutal, so minimizing the amount of material you throw on your back seems like a logical solution to the oppressive heat, right? Right. Well, if you haven't already noticed, the boys of 5SOS really, realllly love their cutoff tees. Ahhh, let the air flow in, boys...

    HOLE-Y MOLY!

    Speaking of extra ventilation, the worn-in, distressed look (as seen here by Calum and Ashton) actually has very practical applications. We're not totally sure how those holes got there (did they pay extra for them? Do they need to switch their laundry detergent? Was a tiger or other ferocious wild animal somehow involved?), but it's a ~lewk~ nonetheless. And we ~lurve~ it.

    What's your favorite 5SOS style? Which one would you adapt to make your own? Let us know in the comments!

  • Five World Cup Nail Art Designs To Get You Pumped For The Finals

    Posted on 07/10/2014 by Kayla6548

    Its MAJOR crunch time over in Brazil as the end of the 2014 FIFA World Cup is upon us! If you haven't been keeping up with the soccer (or should we say, football?) madness, a total of 64 matches are being played in 12 cities across Brazil to see who will be the new world champions.

    With 32 teams participating, it's now down to the final TWO: Germany and Argentina will duel it out in the championship game this weekend as Brazil and the Netherlands, who both came up short in the semifinals, will compete for third place. Here at TeenNick, we've been fiercely watching to see which team will bring home the cup. All we know is that it's gonna be a nail biter!

    To celebrate the global soccer competition, we've asked some of our favorite nail artists to share with us World Cup nail art that represents the final four countries still in the tournament. And wow, are we impressed!

    Unfortunately for Brazil, after winning 4 games and tying 1, they suffered a brutal 7-1 loss to Germany two nights ago. *Sheds tear* But, it's not over yet! We're still rooting for you, Brazil, in your final match against the Netherlands for third place. Here's hoping these festive green and blue nails with gold star decals get you in the zone just as much as they did for us!

    Undefeated throughout this entire competition, Argentina has been killing it! With one of the world's best players on their side, Lionel Messi, Argentina is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the championship game. And look at those perfectly painted Argentinean flags. Don't the suns just scream winner?!

    The Dutch have been pretty dominant on the field as well! Beating Spain, who were the defending champions of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, was a huge triumph for them. We're pretty sure they came back with a vengeance after they were the runner-ups to Spain in the 2010 finals. Their World Cup journey stopped short, however, after a brutal loss to Argentina in a penalty kick shoot-out. But that didn't stop our girl at lalalacquer from doing an awesome job of combining the Dutch flag with the country's famous tulips. Flowers on nails just never get old, do they?!

    Talk about powerful! These nails definitely show the strength of Germany's team as they enter the finals against Argentina. The black, red and yellow ombre effect is definitely what we call FIERCE! And isn't the soccer ball just the perfect reminder of what this competition is all about? We're talking about the love of the game, of course!

    During these final days we wish the remaining teams the best of luck! Fans, be sure to show your spirit. Again we'll be biting our nails in anticipation (or should we say painting them...)! Which country nail design are you rooting for?

    What we love most about this 4th of July nail art (other than the polka dots, of course) is that it's just begging to be recreated at home. You wont need any fancy stencils or brushes, just a steady hand and some glitter polish!

  • TeenNick Top 10: Rita Ora's Top 10 Performance Outfits

    Posted on 06/26/2014 by Rachel1016

    TeenNick Top 10 fans, we have some BIG news! This Friday at 10pm ET on an all-new episode, pop star Rita Ora will visit Top 10 HQ for a special interview. This British PYT (Pretty Young Thing) has made a name for herself in the music world with hits like "Party (This Is How We Do)" and "I Will Never Let You Down," but did you know that Rita's fashion game is on point, too?

    From casual street wear to glamorous red carpet ensembles, she uses fashion as another form of self expression -- and here at TeenNick Style, that's what we're all about. When she's rocking out on stage, you'll always find her making a statement. In honor of Rita's appearance on TeenNick Top 10 this Friday, check out her top ten most memorable, outrageous and downright AMAZE performance outfits!

    SUIT UP

    A bodysuit may not be the most practical or inconspicuous off-stage ensemble, but for dancing around to a crowd of screaming fans? it's perfect. Plus, with those fresh sneakers, cartwheels and karate high kicks have never been easier.

    FURRY FRIENDS

    In Tokyo, Rita took a tip from Japanese fashion in a baby-blue mini-dress accented with furry pom poms. And at last year's MTV Video Music Awards, she walked the red carpet in a show-stopping gown with a spectacular feathered train that went on for days. (Rumor has it, she needed an assistant just to help her move around!)

    KALEIDOSCOPIC COLOR

    Color explosion! One thing's for sure, this girl is not afraid of hues. For a recent television performance, Rita danced around in an all-white mid-length dress while paint was splattered all over her. And at a 2012 concert in New York City, she opted for a bedazzled, almost-reflective skirt and jacket combo.

    But just as well as she can do polychromatic, Rita's got the monochromatic look down, too. Simple and sleek in both an all-black and all-white ensemble (backpack included), this pop-star is totally versatile.

    SPORTY CHIC

    And finally, one of Rita Ora's signature looks: High fashion pieces paired with more casual street wear. Girl can rock a beanie OR a flat-brim baseball cap (and with a pom on top, because why not?) just like she can own a pair of army pants or white slacks with a pair of EYEBALLS on the thighs. *Fans self* *Drops mic*

    Want to see more of Rita Ora and her fashionable self? Tune in to TeenNick Top 10 this Friday at 10pm ET!
