Nail It!

The best dressed women pay close attention to detail, head to toe.  That includes accessories, shoes, and one of the best little additions, nails.  With every new season there is a new nail trend and this spring is no different.  We checked in with the fabulous femmes at stylist.com and they had a few pointers on how to pack the most punch with The New French Manicure.  Seen on the runways of Ruffian, Jason Wu, and The Blonds, the revamped french mani plays with metallic colors and a deeper trim on an almond-shaped nail.  Next time you go to your favorite manicurist have her file your nails into a more oval shape, creating a soft curve at the tip.  Next, instead of going for the typical white trim over pink base, pair a dark color with a brighter shade—wine base with lemon trim, chocolate with powder blue, navy with gold.  Have your manicurist apply the trim so that it follows the deep curve of your newly shaped nail, not straight across like a traditional french mani.  And there you have it!  We can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to glove weather.
