NYFW French Tip Nails Inspired by Essie

Simple, smart, and cool fashion choices were displayed at Rebecca Minkoff’s fall show at New York Fashion Week. The designer’s collection was filled with feminine and masculine elements that also showed up on the nails and created a bold twist on a classic French tip manicure.

Nail guru, Michelle Saunders, for Essie used Bahama Mama ($8.50) as a base and Midnight Cami ($8.50) on the tip for the runway look. I recreated the design using the same shimmery blue polish and instead made due with Essie’s Bordeaux.

Negative Space French Manicure

Last week, Harper’s Bazaar wrote about the evolution of the French manicure. After reading about the subtle, yet chic, gradual changes the design has gone through, I executed my own edgy and unique take on the look.

My latest obsession with the negative space effect led me to create this nail art.  Innovative or just plain crazy, I’m digging the concept.
