Spikes, Studs and Fashion Week


Bonjour mes amis and Happy NY Fashion Week to all my Fashionistas!! This week is always a memorable one in the life of a New Yorker. Between Fashion's Night Out (FNO) and all the preparations for the shows, it's hard not to get inspired and/or influenced by all the lively and expressive street fashions that can be seen on the sidewalks of New York. This week, I'm inspired by fashion and interpreting it through my nail art and decoration. Today's nail post is vampy, gothic and avant garde -- for the dark, McQueen soul in you...

a spike-studded affair
The stars (spikes) of this nail art show:

Nail rings are a fairly new trend and have recently been spotted on the likes of Lady Gaga & Rihanna; however, this drama-lovin' nail party is no longer exclusive and we can now all claim VIP. The nail ring trend has been gaining steam amongst fashionistas and nail enthusiasts alike, with growing features on popular style and nail blogs all over the blogosphere.

All I can say is, there are 24 colors in this collection and I can't wait to try them all!

  7. I simply adore the spikes and studs trend. It's so edgy and glam... In fact, I even caved and purchased a pair of spiked earrings recently. You've given me the idea of experimenting with darker lips more often this fall!
