Another one of my favorite designers, Catherine Malandrino, had a hit collection on her hands for the F/W 2011 season.
The smokey eyes and tossed, soft wavy hair that she models wore were accented by fabulous accessories and these pretty, slightly muted violet nails.
Angi Wingle's Urban Haze manicure was created by custom blending base shades of Silver Chrome and Brilliant White with drops of Asphalt, Putty, Desert Suede, Eclectic Purple and Bicycle Yellow (all shown below).
The look was finished with Super Matte for asphalt gray.
What I love about this look is that it works for fall as well as for the upcoming spring season. So why not use this look as inspiration to try mixing a few shades you normally wouldn't and see what happens? Start with a grey or beige/tan base with a purple shade (or 2) and go from there! - RLB
