This Is Not Your Grandma's French Manicure
Manicurist Rica Romain pulled out this graphic, metallic look at the Babyghost SS16 show during New York Fashion Week - if you haven't heard of the line, know that it was founded in Manhattan in 2010 by Qiaoran Huang and Joshua Hupper, both former Diane von Furstenberg interns.
Rica started with a base coat and a coat of RCM World Premiere Nail Lacquer ($8, Red Carpet Manicure), a silver holographic glitter that we're totally in love with.
To get that triangular take on a French mani, Rica drew two diagonal lines that meet in the middle on the free edge of the nail using RCM Silver Screen Nail Lacquer ($8, Ulta).
"The designer loved the texture of the glitter in the polish, so it added a bit of glamour to the look," Rica says.
It's totally stunning in silver (and the lighter color makes it a little more forgiving if you mess up!), but we can imagine doing the tips in any bold or dark hue. We're planning on swapping in a rich, glossy black.
