METALLIC MANI MOMENTS
This is not about making your fingers look like they belong to a robot. The overriding theme for metallic on your nails this season is that it’s just a touch of it. Which ultimately means, it doesn’t take as long to do. Genius! On the catwalk: Inspiration for the nails was taken from the zips and buttons at 3.1 Phillip Lim, where silver was haphazardly dotted over the top of a pure white hue. However, our absolute favourite metallic moment was at Rodarte (below), where nail technician Tracey Lee applied silver glitter around the cuticle, which she described as ‘fine jewellery for nails’. In your life: You want the metallic to be the star of the show, so paint your nails in a classic nude tone so as not to distract – we love Qtickles Nail Polish in Marwa, Dh45. Then you can either use metallic body paint, or try a sparkly liquid eyeliner such as Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Glamrock, Dh99 at Sephora, and paint a fine line around the base of your cuticle. Minimal effort and maximum results – perfect.
