Two things about me: I’ve never worn black nail polish, and I only recently learned how to give myself a proper
at-home manicure. So when I came across the backstage photos of the beautiful half-moon nail designs that graced models at Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2013 runway, I figured it was my chance to flex my manicure-giving muscles and replace Oscar’s mulberry nail shade for a stark black lacquer.
