3-D Shadow Nail Look (Phillip Lim Inspired)

While flipping through the September 2012 issue of Glamour magazine, I came across an article on nail looks featured at Fashion Week 2012. My eyes were immediately drawn to the 3-D shadow nail look worn by models at the 3.1 Phillip Lim show. The design’s mod feel and bold shades (white, grey, black) inspired me to recreate the look using my favourite purple polishes.

Check out my video to see how I created the look and which products I used. I also have lots of close up photos below.

What do you think of this look? Is it only runway appropriate or would you feel comfortable wearing it elsewhere?
