So a few weeks ago, while flipping through the pages of August's issue of InStyle Magazine, I came across a gorgeous manicure by the brilliant Deborah Lippmann. She created it for Badgley Mischka's Fall 2012 show. I was instantly smitten by this stunner! It's so feminine, sexy and sultry and best yet, it's just in time for Fall! I've been obsessing over it ever since! So i finally decided to give it a try! Since i have a million nail polishes already, (remember my insane collection?? Which I've shamelessly added to since that post!!) i opted for similar shades rather than purchasing the originally used Dark Side of the Moon and Nefertiti. I'm head over heels in love this look! For this post, i kept it as close to the original that graced the runways of Badgley Mischka, however, I'm having lovely visions of a midnight blue or slate blue paired with a metallic silver? Heck, why stop there... i can use just about any combo that suits my taste buds right? You can too! Here's how!
Begin by painting your nails in the desired color. I opted for Deborah Lippmann's Just Walk Away Renee. Once the polish is completely dry, apply nail stickers to the tips (i used Orly french manicure stickers).
Once you've applied the stickers, proceed to paint the tips with your desired color. I opted for Julep's Sienna.
Please excuse the mess, but you can always clean up later right?
Once dry, remove the strips. Apply your favorite top coat and voila... those Badgley Mischka models ain't got nothin' on you! Weeeerk it like the diva that you know you are!!! Grrrr
