NOTW: Minimalist Manicure

Inspired by New York Fashion Week 2014, along with a desire to do a fast and easy manicure given that it was already 10pm, I chose a minimalistic design for my nails this week. Also known as a floating manicure, this new form of nail design favors only painting part of the nail, letting the natural nail show through.

Paired best with muted fall colors, I think this trend is a modern and fresh way to relieve us from the overly sparkly and intricate nails from the winter season. All it takes to recreate is a steady hand and an eye for straight lines (if you don't have either of these, just tape your nails on a diagonal fill in the space).
