DIY Nail Art: Suno Fall 2012-Inspired Manicure (PHOTO)

With the first day of fall rapidly approaching, we can't wait to piece together holiday outfits that are full of glitz and glamour. But while we still have a few more weeks of warm, sunny days to indulge in, it's only fitting that we ease our way into the cold-weather season with this bespeckled DIY nail art.

Christina Rinaldi, nail artist and creative director of the full-service boutique studio Prima Creative, translated the clashing colors from Suno's fall 2012 show into a wearable manicure. Set against a rich black base, the five different shades of polish (plus the silver glitter) seem to float, much like the prints found throughout Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty's designs. Scroll down for the step-by-step instructions to get this look.

Step 1: Paint a thin coat of The New Black x Prima Creative Black on the entire nail.
Step 2: Dab the silver glitter sporadically throughout the nail.
Step 3: Add the multi-color specs (red, pink, turquoise, yellow and white) with two dabs of each color to each finger using a nail art pen. Your nail will fill up quickly, so be reserved when applying.
Step 4: After your designs have dried, apply a top coat of your choice to seal the manicure and give it a glossy finish.
