Flashback Friday: Lady in Red

-------

AlinaFlashback Friday is a 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: Alina

The Moment: Talonlike Tips

The Motivation: Just like fashion, manicure trends, too, are cyclical. And while nail art has finally started to make its descent from stardom, it seems that the slim, pointed shape of the sixties and seventies is back. From Rihanna’s crimson claws to Daria Werbowy’s latest Céline ads (where she sports bloodred tips), all signs point to a this extra-long—and almost lethal—length.
