The Hottest Nail Trends of New York Fashion Week

 

So you may not be able to afford Marchesa’s South Asian-inspired gowns or Ralph Lauren’s matador-glam looks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a little bit of fashion week home with you! The nails on these models are just as intricate and imaginative as the clothes on their backs, with eye-catching designs and long, cat-like nails being at the forefront of nail trends this year. Here are some of the most memorable:

1. Appliqués

This look is very Gaga à la “Bad Romance”, and while perhaps a tad impractical for everyday life, adding simple bejeweled embellishments can add a little something-something to your look.

2. Ice Queen

Light, super-sparkly silver on lengthy nails was a huge hit on the runway, and with the right polish, you too can own this chilling look.

3. Feeling Bubbly

Turns out a super cool way to add dimension to your nails is to add tiny pearls either in a specific design or just scattered at the tip of the nail. Either one easily transforms ordinary hands into casual masterpieces, NBD.
