I know, right? Feather-tipped nails, by Leeanne Colley and the Tips Nail Bar team, for Monday night's Lucian Matis FW 2012 "Nature's Art in Symmetry" fashion show at The Fairmont Royal York Hotel. Also part of the show were black-lace and neon yellow nails, and a black-and-yellow croc mani.
Inspired by the feathers Matis used liberally in his collection, Leeanne created a custom shade by blending topcoat with Revlon Nail Enamel in Fashionista (above left) and Knockout (above right).
Using a small fan brush, she swept the colour lightly over a base of Revlon Neon Nail Art in Neon Light (in stores in August, part of an eight-shade Neon-with-white duo collection).
Leeanne finished with a snip of feathers attached at a slight angle to the underside of the nail tips.
This is one of my favourite feathered-nail shots from backstage.
Crazy creative. Wonder how these would go over at the office? Think about washroom breaks. *grin*
