With New York Fashion Week well under way we had to tell you about the coolest, cutest manicure we’ve spotted backstage so far – the monochromatic manicure! Sounds technical, but listen up, it couldn’t be simpler. We spotted it at the Louise Goldin show and the lady behind it, nail artist extraordinaire Marian Newman, told us how to get the look.
Step One: Start by painting nails with two coats of MAC Nail Polish in Coffee Break, £10, a beautiful soft brown that suits all skintones.
Step Two: Once dry, add a matte topcoat over all the nail.
Step Three: Then, use a super-glossy topcoat on just the tips.
Result? The 2013 French mani update. We love the way it catches the light just at the tips. Simple, but so cool, right? We can’t wait to try it out! SF
