ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: All in the Details

Leave it to Ke$ha, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to have the wackiest manicures in Hollywood. From blinding rhinestones to studs and checkered prints, these superstars always rock statement nails. It takes some seriously skilled (and pricey) manicurists to master these designs, but imagine a CollegeFashionista who is an expert nail artist in her free time! I met up with this Fashionista and learned that she can paint just about anything from Old English letters to leopard print. The designs on her nails are proof of her amazing talent and were definitely to die for. Each finger was impeccably painted a different geometric design in stripes, zig-zags, triangles and swirls. The vibrant neon colors are reminiscent of Dolce & Gabbana’s spring collection (RIP D&G). Not to mention the pops of sparkle from the rhinestones perfectly top off her manicure. 

This Fashionista allows her fingers to be the biggest stand out in her look. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her oversized brass cocktail ring against the intricate nail art. Try this serpent-inspired ring by Free People for a similar look. She keeps her outfit dark so it doesn't compete with her nails. Her denim shorts, knee-high wool socks and combat boots pay homage to the music festival street style.

This Fashionista mastered nail art with a lot of practice and no specific technique. She keeps the designs small yet detailed by using polishes that have the thinnest brushes. Try Orly’s  “Instant Artist” line to get precise and mistake-free patterns. If you are too nervous or don’t have the time to take the risk with painted nail art, then check out these stick-on patterned nails by Sally Hansen. 

Pattern nails are definitely the most unexpected accessories, so don’t hide them in your mittens this winter and get yourself a pair of fingerless gloves. Art-inspired manicures are perfect to complete your looks for concerts and parties.
