Here are some great ideas for your nails for New Years! So easy to do! These gems were done by the CND team for Fashion Week. The photos are courtesy of CND. To score these babies this is all you need from any craft store and beauty supply:

1. Gold Leafing

2. Gold Nail Polish

3. Black Nail polish

4. Tweezer

Create your french with gold and black, then top coat the entire nail, while the top coat is still tacky, apply pieces od gold leaf foil in random spots. DO NOT TOP COAT OVER!

For these gorgeous digits, these are much easier to do than they look! All you need is:

1. Micro beads in clear, white and/or irridescent (found in craft store) and bigger pearls usually found in the scrap booking section of craft store

2. Clear or irridescent nail polish

3. opalescent pigment like eye shadow or CND’s new additives 

Apply a coat of your nail polish of choice then while wet, dip and roll your nails in the microbeads so they stick on, take your pearls and stick them in the cuticle area using clear polish to adhere them, DO NOT TOP COAT, you want to keep the texture. Then with you pigment, lightly brush some in random spots on the beads that was mixed into a tiny bit of clear polish so it sticks, use an art brush or makeup brush.

Ahhh Seductive & Sexy nails, just add a little fabric of the piece your wearing like lace, fishnet or tool, so easy:

1. Nude polish, (we used CND Putty) you can get that at my friend Angie Wingles website http://goindulge.com 

2. Black fishnet (we used very fine material, found in craft store)

3. Fabric glue (craft store)

First, measure out and cut your fabric pieces, place aside, then polish your nails in your color of choice and let dry. top coat, let dry. then using a toothpick apply the glue to the fabric and with a tweezer place the fabric to where you want it on the nail and keep pressing into place until dry, thats it!

Let me know if you want to see more of these posts and definitely if you try any of them!! message me anytime if you need more instructions or if you know of a certain design that you saw and want to know how to do it!

Thanks for reading, Happy New Year!

The nails of NY Fashion Week! The nail art trends that let you recreate the look of the runway at home 

Intricately detailed manicures have gone way beyond rhinestones, crystals and decals — in recent seasons, no designer would think of sending a model down the runway without a signature polish job, specially coordinated to compliment the collection.

 A model walks the runway at the Diego Binetti spring 2013 presentation during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Hotel Americano on September 9, 2012 in New York City.

Fashion designers are taking hands-on approach to the manicure.

Nail art, once associated with cheesy decals, has become nail fashion — and no designer would think of sending a model down the runway without a signature polish, specially coordinated to complement the colors and theme of a collection.

LIVE BLOG: MANICURE MANIA! ALL THE NAIL LOOKS AND MORE FROM NY FASHION WEEK

"Nails are the ulimate accessory," said Candice Manacchio, a nail and fashion expert from CND Nails. "They’re just as important as your hair, your makeup, your iPhone case and your shoes for putting together a coordinated look."

Some designers choose to keep it simple — others demand mini-masterpieces.

One particularly gasp-worthy example? The “woven” nails at Rodarte, which wowed its attendees with its “Modern Medieval” theme on Tuesday at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

A model shows off her nails for Angel Sanchez Spring 2013 Collection; Woven art: The intricate designs made by CND for the Rodarte Spring 2013 Collection.

In order to create the “basket-weave” look, ten CND nail stylists hand painted each nail tip. Next, they painted pieces of wax paper a subtly different color and then sliced them into slivers.

Using tweezers, they wove the strips into a lattice.

Each set has 22 nail tips, to accommodate the varying nail size of each model.

"There were so many left over," said Manacchio. "It was a little heartbreaking after so much work."

Her team spent over 200 hours creating 30 complete sets of nails. That’s 15 minutes per nail.

Designers work with companies like CND, Essie, OPI, Deborah Lippmann and Dashing Diva to create eye-popping manicures with contrasting colors, patterns, textures and dimensions.

Still, doesn’t it seem like a lot of work? After all, aren’t people looking at the clothes, not the makeup?

“The nails are becoming more and more important,” said CND rep Hannah Longman. “The photos of the manicure will be appearing online and in magazines for months. And besides, it’s a piece of the collection that fashion fans can actually imitate at home — for a very small cost.”

The best thing about nail fashion is that you can be as creative or detailed as you want to create a runway look.

Goth nails at the Nicole Miller Spring 2013 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

While it may look like Manacchio used an expensive paintbrush to create the black and silver nails for Nicole Miller, the truth was much more budget-friendly.

"I dipped the edge of a makeup sponge in polish after creating the diamond pattern," she said. "That’s all."

A great place to start? A colorful take on the simple French manicure.

"Seafoam green was huge on the runway," she said. "Why not paint the nail while and create a green tip?  Or vice versa?"

Some designers stepped away from nail art this season, choosing to stick with simple grey pinks and rose shades.

Victoria Beckham, Christian Siriano, Donna Karan and Elie Tahari chose to stick with pale pink and nearly nude polishes.

The nail brand Zoya teamed up with Peter Som, delivering soft shades of pink, lilac, silver, sea green and this season’s signature color: tangerine.

Diego Binetti – Spring 2012 Review – Fantasy Plays-FASHION FRIDAY

Some of the most delightfully unusual makeup, hair, and nail looks surfaced at the Diego Binetti Spring 2012 show, which took place on Tuesday, September 13th, at nightlife hot spot Provocateur. Fusing together carnival references with medieval hardware, circus motifs, harlequinade color influences, and masquerade ball theatrics, makeup artist James Vincent painted models’ faces in purple, blue, and pink tones, adorning them with lace stencils, theatrical artificial lashes, and feathers (some perfectly arranged to line the periphery of the eye, resembling masquerade ball masks). The idea of makeup as mask, as playful disguise, guided the entire process.

The hair looks created for the show were equally theatrical. Rodney Cutler, owner of the Cutler/Redken Salons, masterminded numerous sweeping updos, including a French twist and a bouffant-style chignon. The common denominator for all these looks was the texture — after blow drying the hair roughly with Redken Fashion Work 12, he took small 1/8” sections of hair and crimped them using a mini crimper. These crimped strands of hair were then gathered with the straightened strands and twisted section by section, then twirled into dramatic updos and secured with pins. For greater hold, he sprayed Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray all over the head.  

For the final touch of drama, CND nail artist Candice Manacchio created pink ombré manicures with gilded tips. To craft the “Harlequin Hardware” manicures, Manacchip began by staining nails with CND Colour in Raspberry and CND Colour in Frosting Cream, allowing the periphery of the nail plate to appear darker than the centers, then capping tips with gold or silver metal for a glitzy take on a French manicure. Models with exposed toes had their nails painted with CND Raspberry Parfait.

NAILS

Backstage at Diego Binetti’s Spring 2012 fashion show, manicurist Candice Manacchio perfected “harlequin hardware” nail art. The ombré finish complemented the Bueno Aires born designer’s fanciful collection, which was full of chiffon and lace fabrics dipped in pink, coral and cream. However, it was the metallic French tips, in what Binetti described as “a little ghetto edge” that enticed me to dress up my digits with this look.

To recreate this design, start by filing nails into a square shape. Apply a base polish and once dry, paint on two coats of CND Nail Colour in Frosting Cream (a sheer pale pink). Then brush on CND Raspberry Parfait (an opaque pink) to the outer corners — forming a “U” shape. To achieve the “acid-wash” center, rub gently with acetone. Finish by capping with silver or gold tips.

What do you think about this “harlequin hardware” manicure? Tell us in the comments section and shop the products below to give it a try.

I mentioned the nails from the Diego Binetti, but this time it is the makeup that I’m calling attention to. Isn’t it amazing? Makeup artist James Vincent used carnival references, medieval hardware, circus motifs and masquerade balls as inspiration for the different looks he created for the show; two of the looks are pictured here. Lace stencils, artificial lashes and even feathers were used to create these looks that played on the idea of makeup as a mask. Well done, sir.

HAIR

Stylist Rodney Cutler took inspiration from the theatrical and highly editorial show when crafting the crimped look. Here’s how to get the look.

  1. Blow-dry the hair roughly with Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray.

  2. Take small eighth-inch sections of your hair and crimp with a mini crimper for texture.

  3. Finish by twisting the hair up section by section into various updos and twists. Lock your style into place with pins.

  4. Finish with Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray.

The collection is full of dreamy creams, corals, and touches of neon pink. As with previous seasons, the designer has a strong love for combining textures and embellished elements which are prevelant in this collection. Full of flowing chiffons, tiers of lace and encrusted mirrors, the designer also incoporated a new construction tecnique involving origami.

SO HERE YOU HAVE IT, THE INSIDE SCOOP ON DIEGO BINETTI, COLORFUL MAKEUP, UNIQUE FASHION PEICES AND EASY TO DO TRENDY HAIR STYLES. GO OUT SHOPPING TO FIND EVEN ONE PIECE OF INSPIRATION TO JAZZ UP YOUR LOOK. HAPPY FRIDAY!

MONDAY…MANICURE MONDAYS

BY CANDICE MANACCHIO XOXO

This antioxidant-rich item does more than brew up a good beverage. See what else tea is capable of!

  

Today we realize that there are so many different ways to reuse a teabag (other than obviously making another cup). Here are some favorite reuses that you can incorporate into your tea drinking ritual.

 

1. Relieve your tired eyes

Revitalize tired, achy, or puffy eyes. Soak two tea bags in warm water and place them over your closed eyes for 20 minutes. The tannins in the tea act to reduce puffiness and soothe tired eyes.

2. Under Eye Circles:

Got puffy under eyes that no cream can fix? Do a tea bag compress. The tannin in tea bags has been proven to reduce swelling (baggy under eyes) and discoloration (dark circles). Either put your used tea bag in the fridge or let it cool down for a half hour. Then damp the tea bag over your eyes for 10-15 minutes.

If you’re looking for that extra oomph, try using a caffeinated tea bag. It will reduce the inflammation even more. Green tea bags work best because not only do they have caffeine, but they also contain EGCG (another anti-inflammatory). According to Dermatologist Andrea Kunin, coauthor of the DERMAdoctor Skinstruction Manual, EGCG helps remove under eye fluid buildup (the main culprit for under eye circles and bags). Plus, green tea’s packed with antioxidants. So why not kill two birds with one stone?

3.OUCH! Cool sunburned skin

What can you do when you forget to use sunscreen and have to pay the price with a painful burn? A few wet tea bags applied to the affected skin will take out the sting. This works well for other types of minor burns (i.e., from a teapot or steam iron) too. If the sunburn is too widespread to treat this way, put some tea bags in your bathwater and soak your whole body in the tub.


4.Reduce razor burn

Ouch! Why didn’t you remember to replace that razor blade before you started to shave? To soothe razor burn and relieve painful nicks and cuts, apply a wet tea bag to the affected area. And don’t forget to replace the blade before your next shave.

5. Condition dry hair

To give a natural shine to dry hair, use a quart (liter) of warm, unsweetened tea (freshly brewed or instant) as a final rinse after your regular shampoo.

  • Have a skin-boosting bath. Drop a couple of teabags in the water before you get in the tub. Tea is chock-full of antioxidants, so bathing in it is anti-inflammatory (meaning it calms skin down) and may also have anti-aging benefits.
  • ONE OF MY FAVES!
  • Fix a broken nail. If you don’t have time to get to a salon, teabags provide a great temporary solution. Just tear off a little piece of the bag, wrap it around the tip, and then use topcoat or polish to adhere it. The cloth is extremely thin but also pretty strong, so it’s ideal for holding a nail together.
  • Deodorize stinky armpits and feet. In a pinch, swiping wet teabags under your arms will help neutralize odor, and soaking your feet in tea water made with old teabags is another great stank killer.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS YOU CAN DO OTHER THAN HEALTH AND BEAUTY. REALLY USE THESE REMEDIES! NOT JUST TO SAVE $$$$ BUT ALSO TO REALLY HAVE THE BENEFITS INSTEAD OF SPENDING MORE MONEY ON PRICEY ITEMS THAT JUST HAVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF THE TEA INGREDIENT IN THEM!


HAVE ANY TEA BAG IDEAS OF YOUR OWN? PLEASE SHARE, I WOULD LOVE TO ADD!
