The line of 12 new seasonal & holiday inspired polishes and nail vinyl will launch February 6, 2015 and retail individually for $8.75 (polish; $7.50 for “Eyes White Open”) and $5 (vinyl). “There’s nothing better than the first signs of Spring and all the joy that it brings!

SALLY HANSEN X STELLA MCCARTNEY AUTUMN 2015

Hello Lovely Ladies!

Today’s post is a little late and a little different from the usual ChitChat Nails post.  Rather than showing my own nails (which I bombard you with on a daily basis) today I would like to show you a few RUNWAY looks and quick how-tos brought to you by Sally Hansen when they paired up with Stella McCartney Autumn 2015 collection!

* * *

Sally Hansen has once again partnered with Stella McCartney for her Autumn 2015 presentation in New York. In addition to the nail look that was shared with you yesterday, Madeline Poole has also created three additional exclusive looks inspired by Stella McCartney’s Autumn 2015 collection. Below you will find the fashion looks that inspired the exclusive nail designs as well as the how-to steps.

Stamped IKAT tutorial

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Earlier today I showed you my very first Ikat manicure.  I did use a Marianne Nails stamping plate (my freehand skills are not that great), but added a few steps to simulate the ‘fabric’ look-and-feel; a few of you asked to see how the manicure was created, so here is a quick photo step-by-step tutorial:

What you will need:

* a few shades – of our choosing – for your ikat print.  At least one of these will need to be a stamping polish

* Marianne Nails stamping plate no 66

* a stamper and scraper

* a fine-detail nail art brush

* topcoat and matte topcoat (not featured in photo)

Marianne Nails IKAT mani

Hello Lovely Ladies,

I will be honest with you, I have had a love-hate relationship with Ikat manicures.  They seemed to have gained popularity this past summer (some I enjoyed, others not as much)… but I never dared to try my own because I didn’t trust my freehand skills to get the ‘pattern’ right.  When I received my Marianne Nails parcel I had to try!  This is the first Ikat mani in ChitChat Nails history *sounds so official doesn’t it?*

When I first shared this look on Instagram and Facebook a few of you requested a tutorial.  I am always delighted to hear YOUR requests, so a photo step-by-step tutorial will follow later today in a separate post.
