Living the polished life.

MANICURE MUSE: Emilio Pucci Fall ’15

Admittedly, I’ve turned into that 28 year old who’s too cool to dress up for Halloween. But just because I’ve hung up my skanky Superwoman, Snow White, and Black Swan costumes doesn’t mean I’m done with Halloween forever. No– it just means I’m growing up. Instead I reach for the scary make up (see last year’s Halloween photo below) and opt for the less literal interpretation of Halloween nail art by looking towards the runways. This layered wrap dress from Emilio Pucci’s Fall ’15 collection is the chicer adult option to those less inclined to dress up.

To get these Ladyfingers:

    Really simple nail-art and beautiful. Great for a gothic look. Same idea with white nail polish for a mummy nail-art
