Throwback Thursday: Shimmer Shimmer
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?
