Proenza Nails!


Rolling through Instagram, we came upon Move Slightly blogger Elizabeth Monson's new Proenza nails, inspired by Jack and Lazaro's fall collection—specifically, the standout gold pheasant-embroidered jacket worn by Hanne on the runway back in February. To get the "boxy, layered look from the show," Monson explained via email, she started with a carton of reptilian O.P.I. Pure Lacquer Nail Apps (which subbed nicely for the collections's Far-East prints), and added her own gold accents (Chanel Diwali) and angular black lines, plus a few regal pheasants, using a tool we now know is called a "striper" brush.

The most exciting manicure we've seen since the WAH crew's Converse set. Your move, Sharmadean.

    Why take all of her content and put it here? You should be driving traffic to her page with just a preview shot. Way to mooch Emily.

      Hey there-- Actually, we did this post with Elizabeth's blessing (and input--she gave us quotes and photos to use), and we linked to her blog, tweeted at her, etc. No mooching! Just bringing attention to the cool stuff she's doing on Move Slightly.

    I saw this this morning and fell in love, i've been coveting over that collection since the moment it set foot on the runway and now I can get my hands (no pun intended) on it without forking out the big bucks!

    Wow this manicure is amazing.... Beautiful - I love the shape of the nail as well - the perfect oval shape.

    Wow, I'm impressed at the amount of detail on those nails! I'm sure creating something like that takes a tremendous amount of patience, focus, and skill. Gorgeous.
