Best of Fall/Winter 2010
Trend: Heavy Metals
What happens when grown-ups start wearing huge chunks of glitter on their nails? The industry calls it a "foil effect" and refers to the finish as "texture." Whatever it is, we're on board. Between pumped-up metallics and glitzy glittery polishes, it's proof that you can wear a little razzle-dazzle on your nails without looking like a teenybopper. Khloe Kardashian's manicure, pictured left, is the perfect example of metallic done right: Edgy, chic, and with just the right amount of sparkle. Superstar hues included Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance, a chunky purple glitter "caught" in a sheer black polish, and Orly Cosmic Fx Space Cadet, a duochrome finish that flashes purple, gold, and bronze that is truly out of this world.
