Fashion Nails

fashionnailsWho doesn’t like an elaborate nail once in a while? I know that I sure do! I can’t wait to try out some of these techniques the next time that I am painting my nails. Although nails like these have been on the runways, it seems that the real nail trends for the winter season are dark purples, greys, and dark browns.

Here is a look at O.P.I.‘s fall polishes from their “La Collection de France” collection

I am very excited about the prospect of finding nice purples and mauves!

To make the muted greys and purples look their best I would say to use: 1 coat of base, 2 coats of color (let dry between each coat!!), and 1 coat of top coat (I use Sally Hansen‘s diamond acrylic top coat because it is thick and my nails are very brittle). When painting your nails, try to just swipe the brush down the nail 3 times, once in the middle and once on each side of the nail, this will keep the color nice and not messy.

and for a little inspiration…
