Get Elie Tahari's Dashing Diva Nail Look from New York Fashion Week

Celebrity nail technician Pattie Yankee and the Dashing Diva nail team worked backstage to create nail looks for models at the Elie Tahari Fall 2011 show presented at New York Fashion Week. Pattie used Dashing Diva's Trust Fund with a Make-It Matt top coat for a nude look requested by the designer. This was not a show that I was able to attend myself but I just love a great neutral polish that goes beyond soft pink and this one strikes me as a bit tan or camel in color. How cool would this look for spring?

You are so "on", BB -- This is a great trend! As on lips, a matte finish on nails gives an understated, natural look ... Love!

I just bought a shade just like this at Dollar Tree this week! It took about 5 coats, but I am very pleased with the almost skin colored nails I have now. I love getting new trends from your site and it's great to have you validate something I thought was cool!

Very nice! I like how understated it is.

SO SO SO happy to see a nail color featured that isn't some shade of puce or blue. I hope this is a sign that the future holds more shades like "trust fund" and fewer shades of "zombie vomit"...
