I've been obsessing over the 'Shark Bite' manicure in the March 2013 issue of Harper's BAZAAR, as I shared earlier this week on Instagram (see here). The look was originally designed by CND's Kristina Eastbrooks for the Blonds. I love how it plays upon the black and white graphic look that's been trending in fashion this spring. (Plus, I've been secretly hoping for something to replace the nail-shortening Ruffian). I'm hoping to play around with this look myself; if I get the hang of it, maybe it'll make an appearance on the blog! In the meantime, here are five of my favorite reads this week, mostly pertaining to NARS, new launches, and New York Fashion Week (NYFW):
1. A pictoral history of the red lip on NYTimes.
2. Stunning colors, lines, and shapes in Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2013. NYTimes slide show.
3. I'm swooning over Ommorphia's swatches of Butter London Spring 2013.
4. Say what? Essie is using 3,250 bottles of nail polish during NYFW and more at WSJ.
5. I've been admiring NARS And God Created the Woman on Will Work for Makeup.
Thanks for reading! Would you wear the 'Shark Bite' mani? What makeup and/or fashion looks did you enjoy from NYFW? What new products are you looking forward to?
This mani is adorable. I might give it a go this weekend. :)ReplyDelete
That NYTimes piece on the red lip was fun and brief - exactly what I needed on a Friday night :) Have a great weekend, Dovey!ReplyDelete
Hi Larie, Aw thanks! I wish I could frame that picture--- it's fun for sure :) Have a great weekend!Delete
I love this look Dovey!ReplyDelete
Thanks Vita! :-)Delete
This is such a fun idea! It must be doable no? Maybe with tape and a whole lotta patience! ^^ReplyDelete
Hi Teri, I think so! When I have the time I'll try cutting teeny pieces of tape!Delete
I like the mani! It's chic and cute!ReplyDelete
I've been unreasonably excited about the new NARS concealer. Would love to hear what people have to say and maybe get one for my undereye area. I really like And God Created the Woman too, but that's a Sephora exclusive. Pain!
Hi Sunny, I've been thinking about that new concealer all day (not that I need a new one :-D)Delete
Definitely going to replicate that manicure in the near future!ReplyDelete
Awesome! Thanks for the comment Kodi :)Delete
There are many mani designs that I dislike like the caviar & velvet manicure, but this shark bite mani looks very chic and cute! :)ReplyDelete
I'm really bad at mani, but if I could, I'd definitely do this. Very chic and not over the top at all :-)ReplyDelete
I want the God Created Woman palette (not available in the UK, soooooooooooob), the concealer will be mine though.ReplyDelete
My boys thought this mani was cool! An episode of Africa recently featured Great White Sharks so that was still fresh in their minds! However, probably not a look I will try.ReplyDelete
I am loving all the looks from NYFW from NARS! I picked up the new NARS light reflecting powder & am loving it! I went to Sephora earlier this week & tried both the NARS & the new Hourglass - left wearing one on each side of my face. Initially liked the Hourglass but after wearing with my oily skin - NARS was the clear winner for me personally.
i love this! :) I saw it in the mag too on saturday - i think it is a cool look!ReplyDelete
Glad you liked my post, Dovey! Thanks for the link love :) The product I'm most looking forward to now is NARS' new concealer. Can't wait!ReplyDelete
