Jason Wu S/S 2010 RTW
Copper tones were all over the spring 2010 runways, most prominently at Jason Wu’s collection. I love the nail polish that adorned the various models’ nails. While I’m usually not a huge fan of gold and silver of metallic nails, copper makes for a richer, creamier shade that is actually quite pretty.

Jason Wu’s make-up artists used CND’s ‘Copper Chrome,’ which looks gorgeous. Unfortunately it’s hard to come by as it’s not readily available and currently sold only to make-up professionals.

CND ‘Copper Chrome’ #549 ($9 US at CND)

I’ve selected few other notable shades that could achieve a similar look.


Sephora Collection ‘Reggaeton’ ($7 CAD at Sephora)

O.P.I ‘Cosmo-Not Tonight Honey!’ ($12 CAD at Pure Nail Bar)

Spa Ritul ‘Gold Digger’ (more of a copper tone, $18 CAD at BeautyMark)

Butter ‘The Old Bill’ burnished copper ($17 CAD at BeautyMark)

I love the idea of rich sun-kissed nails coupled with a little bit of summer tan. It gives it that coveted ‘summer goddess’ look.
