Colors: Did It On ‘Em (OPI), Hey Sailor (China Glaze)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, followers! Instead of traditional kelly green nail color, I thought I’d twist it up with some chartreuse nails. And Beautylish is actually what inspired me to incorporate the chartreuse dress/bold red lip trend into my manicure. I suppose this is a risky trend, but Emma Watson, Nikki Reed, and Minka Kelly make it look effortless, flirty, and fun. What do yall think?

If you like this nail art, it’s really easy to recreate. All you need to do is paint your nails chartreuse. Once dry, use a bold red creme for your tips. If you don’t think your hands are steady enough to create freehand red tips, that’s okay! Place some tape a little before the tip of your nail (again, you’ll want to make sure your chartreuse manicure is completely dry before this step). Now, use your red creme to paint on your tips. It doesn’t matter if you get red nail polish on the tape because once you’re done painting the tips of your nails, carefully peel away the tape, and tada! Flawless red tips! :) Make sure you end by sealing in your manicure with your favorite top coat.

This is basically a wacky French manicure. Even if you don’t like the chartreuse/red combo, the great thing about the French manicure is that the color combinations are endless.

Enjoy, and stay fabulous! ♥

MANICURE MUSE: Proenza Schouler AW’12
Two words best describe Jack and Lazaro’s Fall ‘12 collection: oversized and angular. This season Proenza Schouler pushes silhouettes forward with scaled-up varsity jackets and kimono-wrapped skirts fully equipped with karate-inspired black belts. I’m pining over this look in particular which has an oriental yet all-American vibe. 
This post is dedicated to Jena of chicityfashion.com, who not only is a fellow Chicago gal, but also shares my love for Proenza Schouler. Check out her Miss Ladyfinger interview here!
To emulate this look, I used Brilliant White by CND, Glenn by Julep Nail Vernis and Vinyl by Orly.
To get these ladyfingers: 
1. Paint your full nail white
2. Using a nail art brush, paint thin red vertical stripes across
3. Apply a black tip along the bottom of your nail
4. Paint a red stripe down the center
5. Using a nail art brush, paint a thinner black line in the center of the red
6. Using a dotter tool (or a bobby pin), apply black dots in between the thin red lines
7. Top it off with top coat

i have a friend that does a street art project called catlanta, where he makes cats out of wood, magnets and other things and hides them throughout the city and then posts pictures of them online so people can go and find them. it’s a really cool project and it’s gotten super popular, so last night when we were hanging out i told him i wanted to do some catlanta nails. these are based off of the pattern on this cat and even though they took FOREVER to do i really love them!
