Living the polished life.

MANICURE MUSE: Prada Spring ’14

“I had this idea that if you wear clothes so exaggerated and out there, people will look, and then they will listen,” explained Miuccia Prada of her Spring ’14 masterful collection. Let’s just call a spade a spade, shall we? When it’s Prada, people will always look… and when you’re Miuccia, people will always listen.  That said, Prada’s message of inspiring women to struggle and to fight was conveyed through walking works of art. Political street artists were commissioned to create portraits of women that were printed across coats and dresses, which were then splashed with color and layered with paillettes and crystals. The result was a visual and sensory masterpiece.

Like with any piece of art, this collection will be up for interpretation. You’ll either love it or hate it, but, for Miuccia, the point was to get people thinking about feminism through fashion. Anything Prada related commands attention, so wear this Ladyfinger loud and proud.

To emulate this look, I used Raven by Zoya, Emerald Elegance by Maybelline Color Show (Limited Edition), Lexie by Julep, Too Too Hot and Shake Your $$ Maker by Essie, Making Waves by Live Love Dream, Inglot #87, and gold glitter polish.

To get these Ladyfingers:

1. Start with a full black nail

2. Paint a stroke of glitter green polish along the cuticle line following the curve of the nail

3. Using yellow polish create a curved line that follows the green shape you just made

4. Leave a space of black polish in between before painting a red curved line running parallel to the yellow you just made
