Of Hang Nails & Hooker Nails

There are few body parts you can play with safely in public; your hair is one, and fingernails is another. Perhaps this is why so many funky nail designs are coming back into vogue again. Fro example, Glamour.com reports on 13 New Things To Do To Your Nails. (13 in 8 slides?)

The Color-Tipped French Manicure aka The Reverse French Manicure aka Hooker or Stripper Nails is interesting -- though I would recommend staying away from the dark tips because your hands just look dirty. Eeeeiiwww!

(Glamour offers cheap $2 DIY sticker tips on the tips here.)

But what nail fashion has me enamoured? The hanging chains manicures shown at at the Gareth Pugh show in Paris this past spring. It's not only a body part you can play with, but an invitation for others to play too!


According to The Frisky, the look was created by "nail pro Marian Newman for Creative Nail Design extended the look to their nails, too. These hanging chains are the latest in the recent crop of textured nails during 2010’s various fashion weeks."
