The "Lethal Love" Manicure!

There were tons of hot new nail trends at Fashion Week Spring 2012. Here is one of my fav’s from the Jen Kao Show:

It's called the "Lethal Love" manicure! I love how funky & different the look is!

“It’s a very dangerous, lethal person with a feminine, soft side,” explained manicurist Wanda Ruiz for CND (Creative Nail Designs). To get these ombré-style nails at home, Ruiz recommends you paint the brand’s Inkwell or Oil Slick polish as a base, starting from the cuticle and blending out toward the center. Next apply a saturated color, such as Anchor Blue, Green Scene, Rouge Red, or Midnight Sapphire (which are the exact shades featured at the show), & immediately finish with a topcoat to diffuse the colors together!


What do you think of this look? I'm hoping there's an "easier" way to achieve this without having to use CND polishes only...any ideas???


  1. love the two tone colors, makes for summin different for girls to add to their look

  2. these nails do look fierce! i agree with marie, the green and black combo look fab! :)

  3. Love this idea... I wonder if using regular nail polish will achieve the same effect? I feel like it would... I might test that out tonight!!
