Melissa Abalo

If you think staying fashion-forward means updating your wardrobe, you’re doing it all wrong. As New York City Fashion Week proved, for Spring 2015, it’s all about hot OPI nails – and best of all, this trend couldn’t be funner, quicker or thriftier!

Rodarte

The nail look: 
Nails featured metallic accents, softened by a peachy sheer top coat. This technique mimicked the designers’ approach to layering sheer fabric in their clothes. OPI DS Radiance french tip and Glizterland reverse french were “antiqued” by a layer of custom blended Top Coat (a few drops of A Great Opera-tunity mixed with OPI Top Coat).

Products used: 
– OPI DS radiance
OPI Glitzerland
– A Great Opera-tunity
