I love a good fashion challenge. My mission to show a nail look that is "Inspired by the Runway." Since I love all the daytime sequins and of course I adore pops of neon, I put together this fun look for you. Not only do I want to inspire you to experiment with your nails, I also want to share a fun contest, that celebrates creativity called the Sally Hansen #IHeartNailArt contest.
All the nail art on pinterest has me slightly obsessed with mixing things up when it comes to my nails. I definitely wanted an accent nail (read more about that below). So I used the sparkly hue on my ring fingers. The other digits got a bold acidy green. The result? I'd like to call it edgy prep--feminine pink and green but with a downtown feel.
Here is a pin from the runway that inspired me:
Here are the tools I used: Sally Hansen Insta- Dri in Lickety-Split Lime and XtremeWear in Strobe Light. I topped it off with the Diamond Shine Top Coat. If you are a beginner, I highly suggest the Insta-Dri™ Fast Dry Nail Color. It was perfect for a newbie like me. The "Perfectionist Brush™" contoured to my nails making it easy to get an even coat.

As part of the Glam team, I got to meet celebrity nail stylist Tracy Lee at an exclusive Glam event in NYC. From Tracy I learned that the runway colors are influencing the nail artists in a huge way. Tracy designed this look at the event. It reminds me a lot of Prabal's line at Target. The Sally Hansen artist used nail pens and a fine brush to create this mosaic look. For more advanced nail artists, give this a whirl!
