Here's fun nail look that is still chic enough for the "real world".
It's the "half-circle inky manicure" designed by Angi Wingle for CND at the Fall/Winter 2011 3.1 Phillip Lim runway show.
Wingle created the look using warm opaque Desert Suede and arcs in Midnight Sapphire (out in September 2011, and shown below). The look was inspired by sporty, on-the-go women.
This is a lovely color combination that you can play with re-creating the arcs you see here, or by doing a more traditional French manicure look with the sapphire blue on the tips. I love it! - RLB
