Tracy Reese Spring 2013 Nails Looks by Sally Hansen

Sunday afternoon, I had the chance to go backstage before the Tracy Reese Spring 2013 show to get the scoop on the unique nail looks that the models would be sporting on the runway. Never one to shy away from a bold nail, Tracy worked with Sally Hansen Nail ambassador and celebrity manicurist Tracylee to create a custom nail look for the show, which was a unique triangular half-moon manicure featuring four different nail color combinations. The designer also worked with Sally Hansen to create three new exclusive polish shades to complement her Spring 2013 collection: Butterscoth, a warm yellow, Soy Latte, a creamy beige, and Hot Lava, an Orange Red Flip (all three coming out in March for $7.99 each).

I watched Tracylee hand paint the triangular half moon Manu onto Tracy Reese's nails and it looked totally doable at home. You know I'm going to try! Keep reading to see more of my backstage photos. Are these colors and designs something you would rock?

love those! Must do it!

BB, I'm curious...are these stick on nails or acrylics or something? It just looks to me like it can't be the models' real nails (like in pics 5 and 6)....are they?

I like the look, but I could never keep my nails so pointy...I'd take my eye out!

I agree about the pointy nails. I like the pattern and color combos; I might give them a try, but I would definitely round out my nails.

They totally look like press on nails. Very dangerous press on nails :-)

I do like the blue and green combo though.

@Srujana - For the runway they used press on nails, the models are often doing more than one show a day so it's easier this way. Also the long length adds drama on the runway but you could totally adapt the look to a short, more rounded nail - that's my plan! xo

Awesome nails!

I honestly can't wait 'til these colors release next year! I love all 3.
