The so-called "moon manicure" is nothing new for Ruffian's Brian Wolk and Claude Morais. Changing things up ever so slightly for their Fall RTW 2010 collection's planetary theme, they still managed to work in the 40's era nail design.
“Instead of a moon, I did an eclipse,” CND’s Roxanne Valinoti told the press yesterday, explaining how she essentially turned the classic technique on its head. Starting with an opaque gold polish, Valinoti applied a layer of navy on top, so the sliver of metallic lacquer that remained visible curved toward the nail bed instead of away from it.
I'm in love with the soft look of the makeup and those hot pink and fuschia lips. Gorgeous!
