Fall 2013 Nail Trends to Try Now
Things that make my heart sing: new fashion collections, backstage hair and makeup, and NAAAAAAAILS! Nail art TOTALLY stole the show during New York Fashion Week and even though I’m a once-a-week salon mani kind of girl, I’m loving how so much of what we see on the model’s digits can be copied right from our homes. Cool, right? So when StyleBistro.com posted some of the details on what the manicurists backstage used to create some of the fab nail fashions, I HAD to share.
Check it out…
Colors used: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Collection in “Stocking Nude,” “Platinum Star,” and “Gold Roses,” available September 2013
To do: Right before you cure the last coat of your gel manicure under the UV lamp, dip your tips into glitter and gently press it in so that it sticks to the tackiness of the gel. Then cure under the lamp. (For the gray hue above, manicurist Lisa Logan used Red Carpet Manicure‘s “Always Slate, Never Early,” which hits Ulta stores this March.)
Colors used: Two base coats of Deborah Lippmann “Amazing Grace” (an opaque pure white lacquer), followed by a layer of “I Kissed A Girl (a poppin’ pink), and finished with one coat of “Between The Sheets” (a tantalizing fuchsia)
Colors used: Deborah Lippmann “Pretty Vacant,” a pale grey hue that’s part of Lippmann’s Punk Rock Texture collection, launching summer 2013.
If you want a look for less option, Milani has a limited edition Textured Creams collection ($4.99 each) due out in March in stores (Meijer, Walgreens, HEB, and Fred Meyer), but you can grab it online NOW at milanicosmetics.com. I’m doing it on my next mani so make sure you follow me on Instagram for the big reveal :)
***UPDATE***: Here’s what “Shady Gray” looks like:
It looks cooler in person, too. I have some minor chipping after three days of wear.
Colors used: Maybelline Color Show nail lacquer in “Born With It,” (a pale pink) with acrylic black paint
