5 Must-Try Nail Trends

Forget about the boring ol’ French mani. Refinery29.com shows us the latest, coolest nail trends to try out! Time to get adventurous ladies!

A daring manicure has become just as statement-making as the of-the-moment accessory or the season's most-wanted shoe—it's a dip into the outrageous without being over the top—so we couldn't help zeroing in on New York Fashion Week's hottest spring 2011 nail trends. While nude shades held court at many of the shows, including Marc by Marc, Catherine Malandrino, and Thakoon, we spotted five eye-catching trends that really nailed it.

Vegetarian Mutton Peratal

Vegetarian food those days was basically cooked with vegetables, but now there's plenty of other ingredients like the mock meat, mock seafood, mock poultry etc etc. Except for the vegetarian mutton made with mushroom stalks, I don't use the rest because the mock varieties are about artificial flavouring and colouring. No doubt, no harm done once a while but still, I rather stick with vegetarian mutton which can be made to different types of simple dishes. Take this recipe as an example - veg mutton and fried potatoes in a creamy spicy gravy.

200g vegetarian mutton. 
3 small potatoes (sliced into small pieces)
1/2 tbsp dried chilli powder
3-4 dried red chillies (broken)
1 onion (sliced)
5 pips garlic (chopped)
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 sprigs coriander leaves (sliced)
Oil as needed
Salt for taste

Mix potatoes with a pinch of salt.
Fry in oil, remove and keep aside.
Leave about 2 tbsp oil in the same wok.
Saute onion, dried chillies and garlic.
Add chilli powder, coconut milk and salt.
Stir and let it heat through.
Put in mutton pieces and fried potatoes.
Stir and cook.
Off the heat and combine in coriander leaves.
