Hi beauty lovers!
Fall has been a whirlwind. I’ve been working 6-7 days a week (happily, might I add) but that doesn’t mean I let my nail art fall by the wayside. Here’s what’s been on my tips this past season.
These nails look “sinister-cool”, just like The Little Mermaid’s villain, Ursula. I used Essie’s Chinchilly, which is a neutral plum-grey, for the base. I followed the sharp tips of my nails for the stripes of black. You can also rock this look on square-shaped nails, just line the black polish at an angle for the same effect!
Teal Time Nails
If you follow this blog, then you know that I’m a sucker for anything teal. For this look, I rocked a deep dark teal polish on all my nails except for my accent nail, which I chose to paint with Essie’s Mint Candy Apple. I topped off the thumb with Deborah Lippman’s dreamy confection, Across The Universe. The reason this look works is because the polishes I chose are in the same color family, just different shades. You could also recreate this look with purples, reds, oranges, etc. Just keep them all in the same color!
Purple Rain Nails
This one’s a repeat design from a look I rocked last fall. I chose a polish with a duo-chrome finish for the base and used a black striper for the stripes. The accent nail in black just makes the whole look sleeker.
What is your favorite nail design? Will you try any of these? I’d love to see any recreations! Hashtag your photos on Instagram with #leadingladynails
