Living the polished life.

MANICURE MUSE: Fausto Puglisi Fall ’14

Looking for an art project? Search no further than fashion newcomer’s, Fausto Puglisi, collaged Fall ’14 collection. The kaleidescope shards of jolting color and placed embellishment would lend itself perfectly for a rad 3-D inspiration, whatever your project may be. Rejoice! There’s finally an excuse to break out the Mod Podge. Some immediate ideas that come to mind are covered storage boxes, or even a killer side table. But for you ladies that I know so well, let’s translate it through nail art to make a dangerously sharp Ladyfinger.

To shop the products I used to create this look, click here!

To get these Ladyfingers:

1. Start with a full cream colored nail

2. With lavender polish diagonally paint from half of your nail to the opposite tip. Repeat, but make one side come from further down your nail then the other

3. Using a nail striper and light blue polish, create a triangle with the hypotenuse (God, I haven’t used that word since middle school) extending across the nail

4. Using the brush from the blue polish, paint a stroke extending from the blue on the left side of your nail

5. With your black nail striper, create these two shapes on the right side of your nail. Fill them in

6. On the small blue vertical section, make a black bar that connects with the hypotenuse (no, seriously– going to use this word every day now)

7. Finally, section off the left top part of your nail with light blue and fill in

8. Top it off with matte top coat for a sticker-like effect
