Now here's a unique take on the French manicure!
For Jen Kao's Fall/Winter 2011 runway show Kristina Estabrooks for CND nails created unique, dramatic nail looks inspired by organic, living things in the swampy depths of nature.
She created a long, almond shape nail and then used Gold Chrome as a base adding Midnight Sapphire, and accented with drops of Gold Pearl, Iced Blue Shimmer, and Midnight Sapphire (all shown below), for a psychedelic "stained glass" effect.
The look of the nails matched the twisted hair, green metallic eye shadow and glittery bronze brows.
Again, this is another nail look that could be harder to recreate on your own, but you can take inspiration from this look to combine a blue and gold reverse french manicure, or combine gold polish with pattered stick on nail stickers. You can really have fun with this one! - RLB
