Color It Chrome
there is only so much i can rant about this horrid weather and the fact that i can’t take decent outfit photos, so instead of going on another winding tirade i am opting for something different: a wee little post about a nail trend from the runway not so long ago.
as i had previously mentioned – and as obviously stated in one of my banners on the left sidebar – i am one of nail it!’s resident bloggers. a few weeks ago we were tasked to deck our nails in chosen nail trends from recent runway shows. i got assigned the chrome trend, which delighted me greatly as i knew exactly which designer brand showcased it in its SS 2012 collection.
i am certain these clothes speak for themselves. they are by MISSONI, and they are all sorts of awesome. their choice to go with chrome nails (both plain and patterned) was a good call, i think, as it complements missoni’s signature statement prints and color-coded looks brilliantly.
but it wasn’t just missoni that took advantage of the gorgeous chrome trend; several other designers utilized it as well:
as for my interpretation of the trend… i went with “sea gurl” by orly and found it rather mesmerizing to look at. it wasn’t too chrome-y, you know? but still quite metallic and i loved how well it seemed to go with every outfit i put on.
i actually already miss this kind of finish on my nails. might just go for something similar again soon! (:
