Gareth Pugh Manicure For Fall 2010 2010-03-05 12:30:50

Gareth Pugh Does a Heavy Metal Manicure

Leave it to Gareth Pugh to develop what may be the wildest manicure to hit the Paris runways this week. The designer, whose wild aesthetic is favored by stars like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, created a steely, strong collection. To complement the look, nail technician Marian Newman created manicures that dripped with small chains. "The silhouette of the collection was angular with the occasional hint of softness, so I translated this onto many of the nails for the girls," she explained. To get the chevron effect, she painted nails with CND Ivory Coast polish before blending strokes of CND Blackjack polish. She then applied small chains — miniature versions of those seen on the clothes — to create a truly tough-girl effect.

i agree with above anon. it's an interesting idea to compare the two, but the connection seems farfetched.

Really cool! This is the kind of makeup and styling I love to see on the runway. But would it have killed the makeup artists to put a little lip balm on the model?

Certainly not for everyday, but they look neat for the runway.
