Mani of the Week: Retro Stockings

Beauty Blitz's featured their Top 15 Nail Trends of NYFW inspiring some more nail art. I loved these retro stockings inspired nails from The Blonds show. Now these were hand painted fake nails added to the models and used CND polishes. Just keep in mind when comparing it to my version, which I drew on my own hands (not as elegant lol!).

Rather than use a nude, I went with a light gray. I have nude on my toes and oddly don't like to match my nails and toes. I opted for my new favorite color for fall, Zoya's "Dove" from the Intimate Collection.

I did a triangle type pattern down the nail with a nail art pen. I wish I had gems to add to the nails, but I like them.

I think I could recreate the second from top look with my lace nails. Which runway nails did you admire from NYFW?


  1. Great nail ideas - and you did an amazing job with your mani! I would've messed mine up somehow lol.

  2. OMG I've been dying to try new manicure styles. I love the Yigal Azourel and Norman Ambrose ones!!


  3. Ooh very cute! I ordered dove and it is sitting in NYC. I can't wait to try it!

  4. Girl, I am so jealous of your amazing manicure skills! I swear, I would save a fortune on weekly mani/pedis if I could get my shit together and give myself one! (I cannot for the life of me do my left hand!).This looks amazing, and I die for new manicure trends - way to go, girl :)

  5. I wish I had a steadier hand! I would love to be able to do my own nails!

  6. Those nails def look like stockings, how cute!! And not a bad try!!

  7. I gotta try that. Did you see the sally hansen fish net sticky ones they are similar I used them in april.
