Kitty cat nails: almond, pointy, half-moon.

Ahhh! el amor de la mujer pantera, inolvidables las garras de Lota en The Island of Lost Souls. Todo empezó con las manicuras felinas y la estética vamp, las precursoras de este tipo de manicura fueron las uñas de Jean Harlow y Joan Crawford que hoy ha vuelto en dos versiones una exagerada y una más discreta.

Ahhh! panther woman love, the unforgettable Lota’s claws in The Island of Lost Souls. Everything began with the feline manicure and the vamp aesthetic, the forerunners of this manicure were Jean Harlow and Joan Crawford nails, today it has come back in two different versions; an exaggerated one and also a discreet version.

Esta manicura la hemos visto en algún desfile se me ocurre el de Ungaro de f/w 2011-2012 en la pfw y celebs como Rihanna, Fergie o la mismísima Lady Gaga han sido las que más la han popularizado.

This manicure has been seen in some runways, I was thinking about pfw Ungaro f/W 2011-2012. Celebs such as Rihanna, Fergie o Lady Gaga have been the ones who have popularized these nails.

En colores discretos o en fluor, su versión más arriesgada viene dada por la longitud y lo puntiagudas que sean.

Por otra parte la más “suave” se trata de las “almond shaped nails” menos puntiagudas. Estás últimas en su versión más vintage quedan genial si se llevan combinadas con la llamada “half-moon” manicura.

In soft or fluor colours, the risky version depends on nails’ length and pointiness.

On the other hand😉 the softer version are the so-called “almond shaped nails” less pointy. These nails are great and very vintage if they are combined with the “half-moon” manicure.

Inconfundibles!! las primeras son de lady Gaga magistralmente creadas por Aya Fakuda (para los que vivis en NYC os las podéis hacer en “hair room services” y por cierto no muy caras)

Las segundas son de Dita Von Teese, ella se hace las uñas y el pelo (¡qué envidia!)

Unmistakable!! the first pic are Lady Gaga’s nails masterly created by Aya Fakuda (if you live in NYC you can get them in “hair room services” and btw they’re nice price)

The second ones are Dita Von Teese’s nails, her own manicure and hair (so jealous!)
