Living the polished life.

MANICURE MUSE: Moschino Cheap & Chic Pre-Fall ’13

Thinking about next Fall may seem a little premature to those of you who aren’t familiar with the fashion industry schedule. To break it down, there’s Spring, Pre-Fall, Fall, and Resort. Right now designers are in the middle of showing Pre-Fall ’13 collections, and although they are a bit more commercial… I love them. They hint to color and fabric evolution and yet still provide styling inspiration (I’m looking at you Phillip Lim, le sigh). Not to mention that they’re applicable to today’s cold weather, holiday season, and obsession with layering. To demonstrate, this Moschino Cheap & Chic look from Pre-Fall couldn’t be more Holiday. So if you think about it, your holiday nails are so ahead of their time.

To get emulate this look I used Scandal by Vapour, Noir by Yves Saint Laurent, Good as Gold by Essie, a nail art pen and a nail art brush.

To get these Ladyfingers:

1. Start with a full red nail

2. Using a nail art brush and black polish apply irregular curved ‘Cs’ to emulate leopard print, but be sure to stay within the confines of a triangle (use tape as a guide if you need)

3. Using your nail art pen, apply small dots within the remaining red space

4. Using a nail art brush and your gold, apply thin lines where the two patterns meet

5. Top it off with top coat
