Baroque nails on Jason Wu's Fall 2011 runway.

Not since Sofia Coppola has someone given such a fashionable nod to Versailles: Jason Wu’s opulent collection was directly influenced by the Sun King’s palace, from the lace-embroidered sleeves right down to the gilded manicures.

Now about those nails: To create richness and depth, Roxanne Valinoti of CND first applied the brand’s Dark Ruby then layered a coat of Bloodline on top. The smile lines—the tips, in beauty speak—were then gilded with Gold Chrome.

It doesn’t look easy, but it did look gorgeous. Plus, the manis matched the models’ gold-leaf-splashed ponytails.
