The latest nail trend we are obsessed with is duo shades. By using two lacquer colors together, you can create a classically chic look or something a bit wilder. Tip: Make sure your first shade is dry and use a fine brush to create an effect. Who can forget Chanel’s Duo Shade runway art earlier this year?
One of our favorite places to get manicure inspiration is Instagram. So many lovely nail artists and lacquer lovers post pictures of their nail styles. It’s the perfect place to discover fun and interesting nail art ideas! Here are some of our favorite duo shade manicures from Instagram!

Now that we’ve had fun with Halloween-inspired nail art, it’s time to think about the holidays! This is such a special time of year and we can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season than by looking at some of the upcoming Holiday 2012 lacquer collections.
Butter London’s holiday collection is all about the sparkle! Taking inspiration from metallic embellishments and jeweled accents seen at New York Fashion Week, these lacquers are sure to perfectly complement any chic holiday outfit.
As a part of their Eclats du Soir de Chanel collection, Chanel is launching one new lacquer this season. The limited edition Malice is a deep, rich blood red with hints of bronze and black.
Deborah Lippmann has several exclusive collections that are only available at certain stores. All of these lacquers are beautiful and give you plenty of options for your holiday manicures. Nordstrom will carry the Christmas in the City Trio as well as the Rock this Town Trio.
At Bloomingdales you can find the Sugar Plum Fantasy Trio.
Barney’s will have the She’s Always a Woman Trio and the Millionaire’s Holiday Trio.
The holiday lacquers we are most excited about are the limited edition Diorific Vernis which are part of Dior’s Le Grand Bal makeup collection. These luxurious lacquers, inspired by Old Hollywood glamour, are unique because of the round vintage-style bottles.
Dolce and Gabbana is going wild this season with their Animalier Signature Holiday 2012 Makeup Collection. Their new lacquers are Honey, Caramel and Chocolate: three warm neutral colors that beautifully fit with the animal print theme.
MAC Glamour Daze is a sweet, feminine collection that features pastel hues and pearlescent undertones. These fun, flirty lacquers are great options for breaking away from some of other darker collections.
