Living the polished life.

MANICURE MUSE: Fendi Resort ’14

If you’ve ever scoffed at Fendi prices, you’ve probably never seen a piece up close. Granted seeing Fendi in person and not being able to afford a mere fraction of a sleeve is a cruel form of torture, but it’s worth it when you can see the level of craftsmanship that goes into a garment. For Resort, Fendi–or should I say Uncle Karl and Silvia Venturini Fendi?– did what they do best, only this time in the most wearable form: sportswear. Long and lean silhouettes stretched down through track pants and easy midi dresses that popped with bright color, python and art deco prints. Of course, it wouldn’t be Fendi unless color fur was involved (which it was). Also, another huge highlight was the Fendi crowns for which I’m already crafting a personal DIY project…

To emulate this look, I used My Vampire is Buff by OPI, Butler Please by Essie, Seduce by Revlon, and a white and black nail art brush.

To get these Ladyfingers:

1. Start with a full beige nail

2. Paint a stripe of blue on the left side of your nail and in the center (it’s ok if the center one is messy, we’ll paint over it)

3. With a black nail art brush, paint each side of the center blue line so that just a very thin line of blue is exposed

4. [OPTIONAL] At the very right side of your nail paint a thin line of white polish

5. At the top and bottom of your nail, paint red lines

6. Again with your black nail art brush, paint black lines above and below the red lines so that just a fraction of the red is showing

7. Top it off with top coat

    I find in your photo’s the nail polish does not fill the the whole nail by the cuticle. My manicurist fills up to the end.
