Minutes after the Valentino Resort ‘13 collection posted online, Valentino took over my twitter feed. Not only was the fashion twitter world abuzz about the collection, but my best friend was too. I received frantic incoming texts begging me to do a Valentino-inspired nail design because it was the “most feminine collection she had ever seen.” So Alex, this one’s for you: The Resort collection is a breath-taking change from the brand’s dark black Fall collection. The designers paid homage to the haute 60s. It’s not retro, though. The is a real-world, modern age take on Hollywood glamour. Bursting in candy-colored floral lace, demure silhouettes and perfect party frocks steal the show.
To emulate this look, I used How Romantic by L’Oreal, Ladies in the Limelight from the Kardashian Kollection for Nicole by OPI, Chiffon Chic by Maybelline’s Color Show, and Bikini So Teeny by Essie.
To get these ladyfingers:
1. Start with a nude nail
2. Using a paper towel or sponge and a paper plate, dab lime green in various spots on your nail
3. Repeat with light blue
4. Repeat with light pink
5. Top it off with Seche Vite’s Fast Dry Top Coat
