Mmmm, New York Fashion Week, I love you. For anyone interested in fashion, this is like Christmas! Take this nail look that was done by celebrity nail technician Pattie Yankee and the Dashing Diva nail team for the Cushnie et Ochs show on September 9th at Lincoln Center. This is absolutely LUSH, and I think anyone could wear it: male, female, long nails or short. All you need is a powerhouse attitude!

Wondering how they created this look? Believe it or not, it's something you can achieve at home! All you need is a metallic nail foil and something to adhere it to your nails with. Simple instructions can be found all over the web, like at's nail foil information. You can also search YouTube for nail foil tutorials, and you'll find a ton!

For those of you trying to get the most bang for your buck, I can't recommend Dollar Nail Art enough. I know lots of people who've shopped there with fantastic results, and everything on the site is one dollar! I know, that's nuts! Try classic in gold or silver, understated with pastels, or go wild with some of the crazier patterns! This stuff is tons of fun, and if you don't quite get it right the first time, keep trying. It gets easier!

Have you ever used a nail foil? What did you think of it? Would you do it again? Leave me a comment, and tell me all the details, I wanna hear more!
