MANICURE MUSE: Ajak Deng in Chanel for Obsession Magazine
I stumbled across this editorial from Obsession Magazine and fell in love with the futuristic take on the Fall ’12 collections. Ajak Deng models the likes of Chanel, Balmain, Prada, and Balenciaga with the most fierce techno warrior armor. This Chanel jacket, in particular, really caught my eye with the 3-D geometric panes on such a feminine silhouette. If it’s any indication of where Chanel is heading in the future, then let’s thank our lucky stars.

MANICURE MUSE: Marc Jacobs Resort ‘13
If you were at all intimated by Marc Jacob’s theatrical Fall ‘12 collection, take a deep sigh of relief. His taste of Spring is looking a little more upbeat and understandable. In fact, the key word for the Resort ‘13 collection is “fun.” Inspired by Cindy Sherman’s “Clown Series,” it features mix-scaled clashing prints in vibrant colors. While some of the looks still have a costumey feel, the sequined striped tees are super cute and are as retail-friendly as it gets. Above all, the micro floral dresses with the thirties-feel really capture my heart.
To emulate this look, I used Canary by Joe Fresh, Check Me Out by L’Oreal, and Royal by Love & Beauty.
To get these ladyfingers:
1. Paint 3-4 nails pink and 1-2 nails yellow (based on your preference)
2. Using a nail art brush, paint equidistant horizontal lines of shimmery blue
3. Top it off with Deborah Lippmann’s Umbrella top coat
MANICURE MUSE: Prabal Gurung AW’12
Following a stellar Spring ‘12 collection, Prabal goes for round two this year with an equally powerful follow-up for Fall. The moody collection is entitled “Uncursed” and is essentially an elevator from hell to heaven, making a pitstop on Earth along the way. A series of all black looks opened the show with pieced glossy patent leathers mixed with matte fabrics. Next up was a series of vibrant cobalt blues covered in feathers, embellishments and ruffles. The show ended in Prabal heaven with his iconic show-stopping ethereal gowns. One of my favorites from the collection is this mixed gold and white sheath. The pop of black in the belt gives an added edge that translates perfectly into these Prabal Gurung-inspired ladyfingers.
To emulate this look, I used: I Will! by L’Oreal, The “It” Color by OPI, yellow glitter by Barielle Shades, Golden Ticket by Sonia Kashuk and black by Color Club Duo.
To get these ladyfingers:
1. Start with an all white nail
2. Using tape as a guide for the triangle, paint one side of your nail gold
3. Once dry, remove the tape
4. Repeat on the other side using yellow polish
5. Add a layer of gold glitter on top
6. With a black nail art brush, paint a line of black near the top of the white triangle
7. Top it off with Deborah Lippmann’s waterproof top coat “Umbrella”
