Tom Bachik is the red carpet master of nail art and last night he brought his skills to Project Runway. For the L’Oreal Paris Avant-Garde challenge designers were asked to seek inspiration from butterflies. The top five not only created looks that wowed the judges so much they couldn’t pick a person to send home, but the nails got positive critiques as well.
Since I am a Project Runway fanatic, I for one was so happy they brought a nail artist in to consult in addition to hair and makeup. Nails really do complete these looks. Check out the slideshow above for close-ups and grab the look for yourself with help from Bachik. The video at the top of this post shows you how to get the ombre look that Alexandria’s model rocked.
