Do Rihanna’s Bare Nails Mean Something?

01 November 2012, 22.06 | Posted in celebrity, nail art | No comments »

RihannaBareNails 527x540 Do Rihannas Bare Nails Mean Something?

For Halloween Rihanna chose to go with bare nails as shown in the image above. Over at Style (I think it’s Style, can’t find the story anymore, so incredibly maddening–editors you know of what I speak!) there are musings that perhaps this is pointing to the end of the in-your-face nail trend as we know it. The editor infers that Rihanna’s manicure lines up with nail trends shown on runways of late, which are all about bareness.

The thing is, runways beauty trends for a while now have been rather conservative. Whether hair, makeup or nails, designers have chosen to go with relatively staid looks, letting the clothes, shoes and bags make the statement. Most aren’t making a living hawking bags not nail polish after all! As for Rihanna, while her nails are ”natural,” it’s a pretty safe bet they’re fake and just a few days ago she had them painted Vixen red, a perennial fall classic. 

That being said, there has been a move away from super complex designs and certainly 3-D nail art is long behind us as a nail trend except for the diehards (and bless their hearts).  Still and all, the nail game is far from dead. More like steady as she goes and if that translate to a breather from every two-bit celebrity and some nail polish company collaborating on a “new” color, no one is going to mind that at all.

Rihanna: Isabel Marant Jacket, White Manolo Pumps & Gucci Bag

04 September 2012, 20.38 | Posted in Shoes, celebrity, nail art | No comments »

Rihanna (1)

Rihanna’s departs London, and heads to Paris by train, looking oh-so-chic in white Manolo Blahnik “BB” pumps (quite the item among celebs these days, though the white color is one of Rihanna’s signatures), an Etoile Isabel Marant army jacket and her much-adored Gucci “USA GG” flag-themed Boston bag. It’s very similar in silhoutte anyway to the LV Stephen Sprouse bag she carried all the time a year or so back so this must be a shape that works for her. And apparently when she got to Paris, there was quite the melee, brought on by fans who were awaiting her arrival.

On the next page, see a close up on her brown and beige, reverse-French nail art, plus a zoom in on her make-up, sunnies and necklaces.

V79LadyGagaMemoNo4 540x532 V Magazine Gaga Memo 7: Manicures

After a quiet period for better or worse Lady Gaga is back on the scene, in this case writing her memos once again for V Magazine. This time she pontificates on the importance of manicures. Here are her six reasons for nail grooming (her caps, not mine):

SIX REASONS YOU SHOULD DO THIS:
1 HAVING A PERFECT MANICURE INSTANTLY MAKES YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN.
2 YOU’LL BE READY FOR SEX OR TO PUT A PENIS IN YOUR HAND.
3 IT’S A WAY FOR YOU TO EXPRESS YOURSELF (CAREFUL HOW YOU DO THAT).
4 IT FORCES YOU TO SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING TIME FOR YOURSELF.
5 IT BOOSTS YOUR SELF-ESTEEM EVERYDAY.
6 IT PROJECTS AN IMAGE OF SUCCESS, WHICH IS GOOD FOR BIZ.

Given her points no doubt Gaga is hoping to generate some conversation, but honestly I just cannot. To see a full-sized version of the image above click here.
