Trend Alert: Negative Space

Straight from New York fashion week, the latest trend in nail art is the idea of exposing a minimal amount of the nail bed. It’s pretty easy to create and this tutorial does a great job explaining. The possibilities of shapes are endless and we love that you can really get creative. Below includes our favorite looks of this negative space trend:

1. A modern french manicure with a triangle cut out at the top. Try Roasted Mellow with a pop of Paisley Martini because even though it’s September, a bright fresh color is always welcomed.

2. The horizontal line in the middle is a great idea that we just can’t get enough of and Wildflower with Canal Street Daisy recreates this gorgeous two toned runway look.

3. The crescent moon manicure is everywhere right now and the metallic outline completes the look. We plan to rock it with Black Tartan and Smuggler’s Gold for the holiday season.

I will always be a fan of a good orangey-red nail polish. Troya is a color that I see myself wearing year round, no matter the occasion.

I find that greys can help tame down a classic bold outfit. Stone Fence is a soft grey that pairs well with brights, like this pink J.Crew. Drop Waist Dress.

Once Fall weather starts to arrive, I tend to gravitate towards darker hues. Pairing a dark purple nail polish, like Velvet Kilt with blacks + whites is such a pretty combination, especially with the black leather midi skirt.

 

 

Color Inspiration: New York Fashion Week

Image of Color Inspiration: New York State of Mind

All eyes were on New York City over the last couple weeks as New York based designers showcased their Spring/Summer 2015 presentations. The city was flooded with the fashionable crew putting their best foot forward and we’ve been in a New York state of mind ever since. The glorious city never seizes to inspire us and Elle UK‘s Catherine Pykett captured this great shot, which epitomizes New York and the fall fashion we are currently craving. Get your fix with our brooding black cherry creme called Bitter n Twisted.

What colors are inspiring you this week?
