From simple nails at Jen Kao to wax paper stickers at Rodarte and show stopping designs at Rachel Antonoff this year, the nails at New York Fashion Week stepped it up a notch in diversity.
Rodarte NYFW NailsMichele Huynh and a team of CND nail artists at Rodarte created the lattice fingertip toppers with a base of Desert Suede mixed with Frosting Cream, followed by Super Shiney top coat. On wax paper they spread a blend of the first two colors and Chocolate Milk, added a matte top coat, and let it dry overnight. Then they cut strips and applied one to each nail.
70+ Nail Polish Colors for Fall
Nails at Jen Kao NYFWAt Jen Kao, simplicity was key. Helena Robinson, CND's overseer of fingertips backstage, describes how to get the look.
1) First, apply a base coat of sheer metallic (models wore Gold Shimmer Effects).
2) Add a layer of a creamy nude, like Pink Lily.
3)Finish with a matte top coat for a soft, sharkskin-like finish.
