“Known for her convention-defying nail stylings, Madeline Poole is quickly becoming one of L.A.’s most sought-after manicurists. There’s nary a beauty blog or glossy magazine that hasn’t featured her work, and this graphic look is a testament to just how far the imagination can push nail artistry nowadays. The contrasting colors are positively Prada; and is it just us, or does the graphic pattern make you yearn for Swinging London circa 1966? Whatever your take, this is one look you’d be terribly remiss not to try this season.”
“As the weather cools down, your allure heats up. The intense burgundies in this look create a sense of mystery that will intrigue from miles away. But just as the crimson adds gravitas, the splashes of gold on the nails and eyes lend an element of lightness and luxury. This is a look that is as polished as it is powerful—perfect for an autumn night out on the town.” To get those precise lip lines, makeup artist Robin Black recommends: “Use a lip brush with a point like Laura Mercier’s.” - Violet Grey
Sportswear itself is nothing new—Alexander Wang has regularly sent swaths of mesh down the runway—but on the nails? That’s something to cheer about. This look makes us want to dig our pom-poms out of storage and break out the old high-kick. It’s no wonder that nail artist Madeline Poole refers to this look as “the sports bra nail.” Indeed, it has those racer-back lines, and that athletic blue is reminiscent of the athletic jerseys and football helmets of your youth (or, at least,someone’s youth). Whether or not you’d ever attend a football game, we’ll wager you can get behind this look. Go team go.
