There’s a fine line between trailer trash talons and runway-ready nail art. Recently, Bio Sculpture released its Missoni Nail Art mani/pedi range. The Italian fashion house’s famously colourful stripes translate well into nail design, even though it means hours spent sat in the manicurist’s chair. Estimate around 20 minutes per nail, but the key is not to overdo the trend – a few decorated nails per hand will suffice, with the remainder in co-ordinating block colours.
Further along the extreme nail decor spectrum are the heavily adorned stick-on nails from Nazila, now available in the UAE. Katy Perry and Rihanna will have to form an orderly queue for these outrageous falsies that can be reused up to four times and feature everything from dangling charms to diamante bows. Nailistas, are you ready to take it to the next level?
INFO: Missoni manicures by Bio Sculpture cost from Dhs30 per nail and between Dhs260 and Dhs360 for a full set, available at The Nail Spa locations in the UAE, www.thenailspa.com. Nazila nail sets cost from Dhs135 to Dhs250, available at Beauty Solutions, Tiffany Tower, JLT, Dubai, 04 374 6939.
