Throwback Thursday: Shimmer Shimmer

-------

Elaine-Irwin-by-Bert-Stern,-Elle-US,-1986_resizeThrowback 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: Elaine Irwin

The Moment: Shimmering Nails

The Motivation: We admit we’ve always been fans of a shiny finish (rather than a shimmering one) when it comes to nails, but when we came across the above Bert Stern-lensed shot for a 1986 issue of Elle magazine, we had to reconsider our position. Shimmering nail finishes have been gaining in popularity recently. Chanel has added glimmering particles to some of its formulas, glitter nail polishes have taken off (thanks, Deborah Lippmann!), and many other brands are revisiting the look. Next time you visit your local salon for a mani-pedi, why not add a little sparkle?
