F/W 2011 NYFW Beauty - Ruffian, Kristina Estabrooks for CND

drugstore.com, inc. If you're into nail art, here's some great inspiration!

At Ruffian, manicurist Kristina Estabrooks made luxurious tuxedo manicures fit for a black tie runway using Asphalt as a base, topped with Ice Blue Shimmer, Violet Shimmer, detailed with Blackjack (all shown below), and finished with Super Shiny Top Coat.

This masculine/feminine contrast accessorized a menswear-influenced collection.

Now, creating these nails yourself will certainly take a lot of skill, but why not try some menswear influenced nail stickers, or take the color pattern and do a reverse French manicure? There's a lot of inspiration here!

P.S. I also love the use of fuchsia eyeliner lining the bottom on the eyes in this look, and I'll have more details on the makeup from Ruffian coming soon... - RLB
