Fall 2012 Nail Trends from L'Oreal Paris, Tom Bachik Eva Longoria


L’Oréal Paris officially announced celeb manicurist Tom Bachik as the new Consulting Nail Expert.

I asked Tom for his insights on the hottest upcoming nail trends –AND got my hands on a behind-the-scenes photo featuring Tom prepping Eva Longoria’s nails for a recent L’Oréal Paris shoot.




TOM BACHIK'S FALL NAIL TRENDS FORECAST:
According to Tom, nails are more than a finishing touch… they can even be the center of attention. See below for his fall 2012 trend insights and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail shade suggestions (all available at drugstores nationwide for $5.99 each).

TREND #1: Mixing Texture & Dimension
“I think mixing texture and dimension is important. If going with a chunky metallic on toes, go with a rich deep ‘creamy’ color (as in no shimmer) on finger – and vice versa. If wearing a full-coverage nude on toes, then pair with a rich deep shimmer shade with dimension to the fingers.” ­–Tom Bachik

TREND #2: Antique Metallics & Full-Coverage Nudes on Toes
“I love antique metallics and full-coverage nudes on toes, so there’s no competition with all the great shoe colors for fall. Keep color on the fingers to play off lips and eyes.” –Tom Bachik

TREND #4: Sheer Shimmery Lace
“Sheer shimmery lace is a big fall trend. A great look I've started to do as summer wraps up is to use a single coat of a shimmery metallic on nails, so the color stays sheer but sparkly. It’s a great modern take on nudes that stays sophisticate and chic.” –Tom Bachik
