I consider the Makeup Alley nail board to be the most creative nail geeks I know. From layering polish, to custom mixing colors to applying nail gems, decals and stamps, I thought I’d seen it all. Silly us, we didn’t even think about the underside of the nail.
Inspired by the famous Christian Louboutin red sole, Zoe Pocock, of London’s Charles Worthington salon has come up with the “Louboutin Manicure”. Polishing the top of the nail with the clients’ color of choice, she then applies a bright red creme to the underside. It certainly is a heck of a lot cheaper than splurging on a pair Louboutin heels.
Meanwhile, over at the Baby Phat fashion show, the manicurists from Creative Nail Design adorned the models with bold, bedazzled talons. Not only did they apply gems to the upper nail bed but also to the bottom.
