Fall Back...Spring Forward Nail Trends 2011

Dashing Diva Nails Cushnie et Ochs
September 9th
The Trend
{The nails were painted with a basic clear base coat and then a gold foil was applied by rubbing it straight onto the nail. This gives a dipped gold metallic look.}
To get the look:
Start with round, short nails. Apply one coat of clear polish. Polish on Dashing Diva's Fashion District nail lacquer along the edges to mimic the gold edge finish.

Moon Manicure

The moon manicure is definitely here to stay for awhile. It was spotted at the Ruffian show and this one was spotted at the Vena Cava Show!
Here we have a half moon manicure that was featured on the Vena Cava runway. Butter London took a graphic spin on this look. The nails are polished in cafe au lait and at the bottom a half-moon of black.
