Deborah Lippmann Inspired Nails

I love Deborah Lippmann nail varnishes, sadly I still don’t own any! But I saw a lovely manicure on Facebook the other day done by her team at the Badgley Mischka Autumn 2012 show. I know it’s a jumping the gun a bit, but it’s still cold here in England and the design cheered me up and took me right back to Christmas! Here’s the actual Deborah Lippmann design.

 I instantly fell in love with the rich deep red colour with the golden tips! Here’s my version using Chanel Le Vernis in Peridot and Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Unnatural.

Deborah Lippmann inspired luxury manicure!

I wish I could offer some makeup tips on how to get the tips straight, but all I can say is just keep practising! I don’t use manicure strips as they tend to leave marks in the varnish or don’t sit flush to the nail, leaving an uneven line. Make sure you’ve got plenty of time and keep at it, you’ll get there in the end. :)

Black And Gold Manicure Using Chanel’s Peridot!

All this week has been Winter Varsity at university and I’ve been getting into the spirit with some black and gold nails! Showing my support in a beauty related way. :) I used Chanel Le Vernis in Peridot for the gold colour and Nails Inc Nail Varnish in Black Taxi for the tips.

Classic combo of black and gold!

A very simple yet effective look! Tomorrow I will be doing a contouring/skin sketching tutorial, so keep an eye out :)
