Sparkly Matte Nails at Timo Weiland: Guest Blogger
For this week’s fashion week, we couldn’t have landed a better nail correspondent (put that title on a business card!). Taryn Multack, the genius behind Miss Ladyfinger, initially started her blog as a way to translate fashion trends to manicures. Since those early days, she’s partnered with top designers and brands. She’ll be reporting all next season’s must-try hues and designs.
It’s only the first day of NYFW, but there is already a clear nail trend for Fall ’13: matte polish. Now, matte can be tricky because it can make us look washed out or sometimes even looks unfinished. But this was definitely not the case backstage at Timo Weiland.
Zoya lead manicurist, Sunshine Outing, created a sparkly layered look using the Zoya Pixie Dust formulas (stunning sparkly polishes in subdued colors that create a matte effect). “Timo wanted a navy nail, so rather than blending it, we layered it,” she says. “To get the nail, paint one layer of Godiva, followed by a layer of Dahlia, and topped it off with Nyx. Keep in mind, the Pixie Dust line doesn’t play well with other polishes.”
The effect is a sparkly matte navy Ladyfinger that twinkles. The best part? All three polishes are currently available in store. Go get ‘em, ladies.
TeenVogue/Miss Ladyfinger Inspiration
So a few weeks ago I was sitting with my roommates in the living room and I had just brought in the mail. Some girl who used to live in the upstairs apartment has a subscription to TeenVogue and she never got rid of it, so now we reap the rewards. My roommate was reading through it, and I’m not going to lie.. I was judging. My exact thoughts were what 21 year old is sitting around reading Teen Vogue, better yet what college student actually bought the subscription? Either way, after I shamelessly made fun of her I decided to flip through it as well. Go figure. While I didn’t read the articles [Unfriended how to deal with feeling left out, cool style 318 ideas, it girl Alexa Chung, etc. — I guess I just outgrew the articles ] I did look at all the pretty pictures, obviously. I kept looking at designs and thinking how much more I would like that on my nails than as a dress. Weird, I know. So I ripped out a few pages for nailspiration.
And then…the other day I was browsing tumblr for nail art (as usual) and I saw this post by Miss Ladyfinger. Miss Ladyfinger does amazzzzing nail art, using all different inspirations but usually it is fashion/runway.
I never really thought that anyone else would be flipping through Teen Vogue thinking ”man, that would look good on my nails.” I was wrong. We pulled the same photo. Small world. Once I saw her completed mani, I had to do mine. If I had not seen Miss Ladyfingers mani, I probably wouldn’t have had the motivation to actually complete this look. Thanks for the motivation/inspiration!
So here is my version of Diane von Furstenberg’s dress :)
