Fashion at your fingertips: Paint'd nail studio

Fabiola Divins and Aimee Sedky open a studio on Magazine Street
Fabiola Divins and Aimee Sedky joke that they had zero experience in the nail industry before opening Paint'd (1581 Magazine St., 504-309-2311; www.paint-d.com) in May. It's true, but the success of their nail salon belies that fact.  Both women began their fashion journey in men's accessories. During a casual yet fateful conversation last October, they decided to go into business together.  "We're really excited to dive on in to all things girly," Sedky says.  Sedky's time in New York City after college exposed her to nearly every fashion industry spinoff, including manicure-only boutique salons.

Work hard, play hard, get injured?

Physical therapist Morell Crane offers tips to prevent common sports injuries
It may be inevitable: After being at work all day, you play too hard (and maybe consume too many adult beverages) and find yourself debating a trip to urgent care after your ankle begins to swell. After-work athletes are susceptible to injury, especially if they're new to a sport or reintroducing certain types of activity into their lives.
