No doubt about it: strikingly polished nails now make as much of a statement on Fashion Week runways as hair and makeup.
And in a naturally leaning move at the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) Fall 2014 shows, designers from Dannijo to Kate Spade are reaching for non-toxic lacquer lines like Butter London, Priti NYC, and Deborah Lippmann.
Read on for trending styles, like reverse ombre and reverse French mani, to try on your next trip to TenOverTen. Because even though you’ll have to sit tight for fall to nab these fresh fashion looks, your nails don’t have to wait. —Jamie McKillop
Butter London lead manicurist Katie Jane Hughes applied Goss as the base at jewelry brand Dannijo’s “Boxerina” presentation—where ballerinas modeled as dancer-boxer hybrids—then tipped the nails in Posh Bird with a makeup sponge for a fitting “edgy” but “girly” ombre effect.
Butter London’s Hughes was once again backstage at Nicole Miller, where she enhanced the collection’s inspiration—female warriors—with a matte Union Jack Black base followed by Knees Up to create a hot feather-and-flame motif.
