Throwback Thursday: White-Hot Nails

-------

Gail-O'Neill-by-Gilles-Bensimon,-US-ELLE-July-1986Throwback Thursday is a regular feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Gail O’Neill

The Moment: White nails

The Motivation: We love summer. Finding makeup solutions for melting foundation can be tough, but playing with polish colors? Infinitely more enjoyable when fingernails and toenails are on constant display. The biggest trend we’ve noticed on the streets (or should we say beach?) this summer is white manicures. We’ve already pointed out our five favorite formulas, and now comes a little inspiration. Everything about the above shot of model Gail O’Neill screams summer, but her flawless white manicure is evidence that the look is perfect for the warmer months—way back in 1986, and right now.
