Living the polished life.
MM Chanel Resort 16

MANICURE MUSE: Chanel Resort ’16

After a mini-moving [apartment] hiatus, I’m back… and with Chanel! Thanks for bearing with me. Miss Ladyfinger is still stronger than ever and if you ever miss me too much you can always follow me on Instagram.

Last week Karl Lagerfeld showed one of his infamous Chanel productions, but this time far out East in Seoul. He channeled Korean pop-culture with candy colored geometric prints, pigtail buns, and dramatic proportions. In true Karl form, there was plenty of excess, but the look that stood out the most to me was this understated pastel stripe– perfect for the spring (can you even still say “spring” during 80 degree weather?). Grab your brightest neon polish, a striper, and paint some happy.

7. Finally top it off with top coat– pick matte for a cool effect!
