“Summer nails usually scream bright colors—as they should!—but sometimes a pop of bold orange or blue can be too much next to a statement outfit for me. I love the sophistication this twist on a reverse French manicure brings to my hot pink dress!”
Recreate her look:
1. Apply base coat.
2. Turn your left hand to the side so your thumb is pointing toward you, and using the thinnest nail art or paint brush you can find, draw a C-shape as close to the cuticle as possible. I used Urban Jungle here. Repeat on the right hand by making backward C-shapes on each nail.
3. Apply a coat of Fierce No Fear to the rest of each nail, getting it as close as possible to the C-shapes you drew.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3.
5. Apply top coat and let dry. So cute!

Bespoke suits from Saville Row, haute couture gowns from Parisian ateliers — When it comes to next-level quality, it’s all about a custom craft. Leave it to Fendi, the near-90-year-old Italian luxury house famed for their furs, to inject that same standard of artistry into their fine jewelry. In 2010, creative director of accessories Silvia Venturini Fendi introduced the Selleria watch collection (debuting on Gilt today), which features interchangeable cases and straps for endless combinations to suit your style and mood. Swiss-powered and Italian-designed, the innovative watches are hand-stitched and crafted from the same Cuoio Romani leather used for the signature Selleria handbags, launched in the company’s first year. See the meticulous handiwork in the video above, and invest in a piece of history for yourself in our Fendi Watches sale.
