Rodarte Fall 2012 Nail Looks by Deborah Lippmann

Here's another show I didn't get to cover in person, but the team at Deborah Lippmann filled me in (and hopefully I can go backstage next season - Rodarte is definitely one of my "dream tickets" for Fashion Week.) For Fall 2012, the Mulleavy sisters envisioned an earthy, almost dusty nail to complement their collection which took its inspiration from Australia. Bronze and golden shimmer was used in the makeup looks, so nail pro Deborah Lippmann came up with the perfect combination for the nails using two coats of No More Drama, a sultry golden caramel (fun fact: it was created with Mary J. Blige), topped with her Flat Top matte-maker top coat. I love how a matte top coat can completely change the look and feel of any given polish, and I'd definitely give this mani a go. Whether you're weathering a dust storm in the Outback or just getting through the work day, I think it's a chic nail look to mix things up. Would you wear it?

The Rodarte hair and makeup was my favourite's of this season so far; it's just dreamy and so are the nails. But I would still feel comfortable wearing this nailpolish to the office.

That matte effect is so cool! Almost makes the polish look like metal, rather than glossy.

Beautiful color! I like it already but please do not show me Fall 2012 just yet because I know as soon as Spring gets here then I will be ready for Fall. LOL. I seriously counting the days for Spring ;-)
