Lacquer And Lace, A Match Made In Heaven


After some show-stealing performances from Dashing Diva and CND earlier in the week, the statement nail continued its reign at Tracy Reese yesterday. Working off the designer’s “modern but feminine, young, and edgy” inspiration (sound familiar?), manicurist Dana Caruso applied Wet Clay onto models’ fingertips, a creamy concrete color from Reese’s new collaboration with Sally Hansen due out at the end of the summer. The “edgy” factor came with a piece of black lace that Caruso cut to fit each nail, securing it in place with a glossy topcoat to hold. The technique makes for a fun personal project when you’ve got some time on your hands—say, if you should happen to be stuck indoors tonight because of another February snowstorm (ugh).
