With the first part of the final Twilight series book, Breaking Dawn, currently out in the theaters, and the anticipated Snow White and the Huntsman flick soon to follow, gorgeous Kristen Stewart is hot to trot these days. Of course, we absolutely love it because we all know she’s a Fing’rs Edge kind of girl.
Although Kristen is often spotted biting her nails (Kristin, we can help you with that), there’s no doubt about it: she is most definitely the girl of the moment. A starlet, with a hottie British boyfriend to boot, this girl’s got the true Edge.
Snake and snakeskin is hot to trot this season! Opt for a hint of this exotic adornment to show your wild side. From our Fing’rs Edge #31112 nail to snakeskin pants to shoes to purses, you’ll have plenty to choose from!
We’ve always loved Keira Knightley’s look – we like to think that she is the epitome of a Fing’rs Edge girl. Her style always pushes the outer limits of what’s chic and hot, in a non-conformist way. What is it about our trendy Brits that are always making fierce, cutting-edge fashion statements that push the envelope?
When Keira donned bangs, her hairstylist Adir Abergel called her bangs “edgy, Julie-Christie-in-Doctor Zhivago” fringe. We love it and her always flawless makeup – very cool; almost gothlike!
We like to think she’s wearing either our Edge Limited Edition Nails 31112 or 31306 styles with her outfits. Why not? These Edge nails are unpredictable fashion that keeps you guessing and wanting more… right up Keira’s alley!
Last month (from September 16 – 18), The Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary with acts including ColdPlay, Sara Bareilles, Foster the People, Kanye West, My Morning Jacket, Stevie Wonder, and Arcade Fire. Known for its three-day, eight stage annual event, over 70,000 fans attend the festival each day to watch more than 130 bands.
As always, fashion is hot and eclectic at the festival – it’s a great place to express your inner Fashionista. As reported by Lucky Magazine, “plenty of girls went for festival fashion mainstays, like breezy printed dresses and vintage high-waisted cutoffs, reinforcing the city’s “ultimate hipster” reputation.”
We love the fashions we spotted, and especially the nails (Fing’rs girls, a whole lotta them!) Spanning the look from more hard rock and red hot (like the Edge 31115) to a cooler argyle (Edge 31114), fashionable nails definitely took the center stage, too.
Want to go next year? Reserve $200 for a three day pass and book October 12 – 14 for a trip to Austin. But, don’t’ forget to stock up on your cool bohemian fashions and Fingr’s nails!
This year’s Fall fashion looks are perfect for our Fing’rs Edge girl. Cooler temps call for styles that are all about cutting looks, with several designers injecting a little bit of wild child inspiration into their collections this year. From fur to animal prints with florals, studs, tweeds and leathers, here are 3 of our favorite Fing’rs Edge designs that will help complete your fiercest ensemble.
We already know metallic rules the beauty runway, with metallic eyeshadow still conquering the overall look. Complement that look with silver and black snakeskin-like nails. You’ll capture double-whammy trends – metallic and animal print from just one nail style!
Even if you don’t want to be so bold as to throw two trends in one nail design, it’s highly doubtful anyone will think you are bashful if you sport these red leopard nails. With a RED HOT base color and leopard spots on top, you will definitely communicate (in a nice, subtle manner) to all of your peers not to mess with your inner wild child.
Argyle often conjures up classic, schoolgirl looks, but not if you sport these edgy nails. The purple glitter accents give just the spunk these nails need to show others that you’re up to adventure and thinking outside of the box!
In case you missed it, 1970s fashions such as flared jeans and wedge sandals are HOT, HOT, HOT this year. If you haven’t yet stocked up on your 70s apparel look, you can channel the trend with your hair! Many hip chicks are wearing feathers and weaving wispy extensions and going for plumage-adorned head gear in their hair!
Spurred on by celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Hilary Duff and Kesha, and adorned by the ultimate style mavens, the feathers-in-hair trend – weaving wispy extensions into their hair and going for plumage-adorned head gear – was first spotted earlier this year and is now the hottest thing in salons.
In fact, fly fishermen are now dealing with supply issues and bumped-up prices for the feathers they need for their sport and can blame fashion and beauty hipsters: The recent craze in feather hair extensions has led to a feather shortage and more than doubled the cost of plumes!
The feathers are usually applied using small metal clasps and can be washed and styled like regular hair. They last four to 12 weeks, after which they break or fall off. Salons apply them at a cost of $30 to $75 depending on the size of the feather cluster.
Still, it’s not just feathered extensions that are adorned by top fashionistas and showing up at trendy hot spots these days. Accessories, headbands, cocktail hats and fascinators decorated with plumage are also popular.
Fans like it because it gives their tresses a little flair or excitement, and the colors can give hair beautiful tone… and paired with our Fing’rs Edge nails, it just screams “HIP CHICK!”
Some of our coolest and hippest celebrities are flashing the chicest nail designs these days, spurring on the latest trend of design nails. There’s been such a cross-over that we’ve even noticed some “conservative” women add a little spice to their nails with a little nail bling to capture this hot trend. We love it!
Clearly driven by our glamorous rock stars such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kesha, Beyonce and Fergie, their nails are never bland and boring. But when we have other gorgeous gals such as Lauren Conrad, Kim Kardashian, Alexa Chung, Heidi Klum, Megan Fox, Liv Tyler and model Agyness Deyn also join in on the trend, it’s no wonder we’re seeing more (non-famous) ladies embracing and participating in rocking gorgeous nails, too.
