French Manicure with a twistTess Giberson – a twist on a French manicure (eonline)

With New York Fashion Week wrapped up for another year, we’re left with lots of great ways to freshen up our own style. By watching the way the top designers have chosen to style everything from the model’s hair, to their eyes, lips, and nails, I’m excited to take the coming trends and adapt them to the current season.

Obviously this doesn’t mean I’m planning on bleaching out my eyebrows or going bra-less in sheer tops like Marc Jacob’s models on the runway last week (scary!). But we can all take cues from their blunt bobs with headbands, play with side-swept parts, smoky slept-in eyes, and reverse French manicures. Some of the other take homes include, gold-tipped nails on a  natural base, glittery, metallic eye shadows, strong well-groomed brows, and berry stained lips.
