Nailed It: Mani-Inspiration

Between awards season and fashion weeks, there’s been no shortage of mani-inspiration lately.  Take a cue from these stars and runway shows for some shades to try this month.

Greys

Grey nails have been major lately, showing up on Jennifer Hudson’s tips at the Oscars, as well as on models at shows for Jason Wu and Vera Wang.  It’s sophisticated, classy, and has just a little bit of an edge.

Nudes

Nude polish took over the red carpet at the Academy Awards this year, with celebs like Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lawrence and Adele all opting for a more neutral look.  My recommendations?  OPI’s Don’t Burst My Bubble and Glints of Glinda, both from the new Oz the Great and Powerful Collection.

Lovely in Lace

Try a different kind of embellishment like this look at Houghton’s NYFW show.  Cut pieces of lace to fit your nails, apply them while your polish is still tacky, and finish with a top coat to lock it in.

 

Bright and Beautiful

Just in time to get your mind out of the bleakness that is winter, bright nails come to the rescue.  I’m loving Essie’s new Resort Collection which is full of fun, beachy colours to warm you up.

Decked Out

Iced out nails have made a splash so far, with shows like Libertine showing off models with bedazzled tips.  The cutest Academy Award nominee ever, Quvenzane Wallis rocked a bow on her nails at the awards show.  Check out Hex Nail Jewelry‘s reusable nail charms to add a kick to your nails.
