Summer blockbusters are making their way to the silver screens. And with every premiere comes with celeb looks we want to replicate, like Emily VanCamp’s nude nails. I know we opt for neons and corals come spring/summer, but nothing screams simply chic like nude. So to create Emily’s mani, we had Celebrity Manicurist, Alex Jachno tell us how to do it at home.
“You always want to look at the nail bed and finger shape to help determine what shape will look best. Emily’s nail beds were long and slender so a rounded nail complimented her fingers the best,” said Alex.
Just like a “no-makeup” makeup look, a beautiful nude nail is one of the hardest to achieve. In the same way that nude heels elongate the leg, creating the illusion of skin and having a meticulously shaped nail make for a beautiful manicure. With this look you have to have an eye for detail and pay attention to the detailing of the way you shape her nail, and the skin tone of her fingers.
First I used aZoya base coat to ready the nail and then I applied two coats ofZoya in Avery, a nude that blended with the right undertones of her skin but still had a little pop. I finished the nail with a Zoya UV protector top coat. When i finished Emily looked at her nails and said “Wow, I really love this nude. You know how some nudes have too much pink? This one is perfect! Just enough pink and yellow undertones.”
I have a passion for a good spin class. Over the last year, I have become a spin queen. So I am always on the hunt for the coolest places to take a spin class in a fashion city. Now I turn my expertise to London, where I have found a spin studio for every level, from beginner to the competitive spinner.
Dating is hard, but imagine if you are a vegetarian or vegan? It’s even harder. I am lucky my partner is trying to give up meat too. Together we have set out to find cool places to go eat and we found another one. Dead Dolls House in Islington.
