This Manicure Trend From New York Fashion Week Is SO Easy to Copy
This will take you less than a minute.
Are you falling behind on your weekly manicure maintenance? First off, don't sweat it: there are far worse things you can be doing. (Like wearing any of these.) But for a foolproof way to get your tips in top shape, take a cue from Tibi's New York Fashion Week runway.
The fall/winter 2017 collection is all about "elevated layering," inspired by menswear. Creative director Amy Smilovic created a collection of beautifully tailored suits, blouses, jackets, and dresses. There are plenty of square shoulders and cinched waists, but the line's not all about board-room chic.
Instead, some of the looks have comfy, cocoon-ish shapes make us want to crawl in and hibernate until spring. There were also some color combos that were anything but business-as- usual.
How cool do these silky teal boots look against black-and-white checks?
Amy worked with nail guru JiNsoon to develop a matching manicure. The style features natural nails with a glossy finish, and a bright color swiped onto just one finger on each hand. This would be beyond quick to replicate at home. Or, take it to the salon to get all the expert buffing and cuticle-pushing while you're at it.
If you want to mimic the exact looks seen on the runway, just follow these steps. First, use a base coat on all your nails. Then, paint the index finger on each hand with a statement color like JiNsoon's Heirloom, Pop Orange, Charme, Hope, or Cool Blue. Finally, top each nail with a gloss. Talk about simplicity!
