It’s hard to keep track of what’s what in the world of celebrity and fashion, so Bio Sculpture have compiled a run down of the latest in nail art so you don’t have to! From red carpets to runways to real life, nail art continues to turn heads. Here are some of Bio Sculpture’s favourite looks.
BIO SCULPTURE FOR TOI ET MOI
Cult Aussie fashion brand Toi et Moi recently launched their latest collection at beautiful French restaurant L’Etoile, capturing their chic French aesthetic perfectly. Every detail was crucial to the overall look, right down to the models’ nails. Bio Sculpture were selected to look after the nails, and worked with the designer Gill Lawrence to create the perfect colour palette.
To suit the print heavy collection, a three colour palette was chosen including the hot 2013 trend of monochrome, with #1 French White and #2017 Licorice, as well as a chic Parisian red – #117 Breaking Dawn. Breaking Dawn was chosen for it’s rich ruby colour and subtle shimmer, and the way it perfectly contrasted against the strong black and white.
THE MET GALA- PUNK: CHAOS TO COUTURE
Never have nails had more focus on a red carpet than they did at the 2013 Met Gala. With the theme of Punk to inspire them, guests were able to let their imaginations run wild. No boring nudes on show here – instead, rich metallics, elaborate nail art and plenty of studs were the order of the night. Our faves? Nicole Ritchie and Sienna Miller!
Nicole went with an incredibly glamorous reverse moon manicure with a difference. The gorgeous deep berry and gold combo perfectly offset her beaded gown and we love the love heart look that was subtly created. To give this look a try, use two coats of #2018 Passion Plum first to create the rich base coat. Then use circular stickers to create the heart shape and paint over with #2004 Gold Rush. If you are confident with your brushwork, try the reverse and paint the heart shape with #2018 over the top of #2004. Just be sure to apply two coats of each colour to ensure a rich colour look. And don’t forget to give the almond shape a try – this look is right on trend.
For Sienna’s look, she kept it simple but incredibly bold by taking studs the the next level. To create this look, choose a deep dark metallic or black shade – we love the Rock and Crystal collection, especially #137 Embellished Onyx with it’s decadent shimmer. Paint nails with two coats for a rich finish and then add spiked studs to the centre of the nail. If spiked studs are a little too out there, try square studs instead to still have a strong impact.
CANNES FILM FESTIVAL BRIGHTS
It’s always sunny in Cannes, especially when the Film Festival rolls into town. With the who’s who of celebrities walking the red carpet every night, we watched with baited breath to see what the hot nail trend would be… Turns out it was orange! Perfect for summer weather, the colour was used by Nicole Kidman to highlight the gorgeous flowers in her Dior dress, while Barbara Palvin turned basic black into anything but with her bright shade. Take your pick from Bio Sculpture’s extensive palette of orange hues to recreate the look.
