This is a finger-poppin' look, isn't it?

Welcome to 3-D nails, the latest in nail art design.

I've been seeing the rocky finger trend in my nail salon since  fall. Women come in and get their nails painted a base white or black and then get their fingers built out into what I like to think are floral jigsaw puzzles. (Speaking of white nails, did you see the article by my colleague, Jenice Armstrong on Amber Rose. Those white nails popped, but I digress.)

On Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards actress, Zooey Deschanel wowed mainstream America with 3-D tuxedo nails. Weirdly appropriate for red carpet fashion, huh? See them here.

Prices start at $30 for a base manicure that includes two nail designs. - Thumbs are most popular. All 10 hands can run you upwards of $70 depends on the detail of the design.


Conservative?  They absolutely are not.

Fun? Yes.  Would you get your nails built out 3-D style.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
