New York Fashion Week: Fall 2013 Nails

Every fashion week, more and more attention is paid to nail art. Designers are hiring talented manicurists who can create exquisite art that works perfectly with their designs. For the New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 season, the caliber of nail art was at an all time high. Here are a few of the trends we spotted on the runways! 

Matte lacquer is one of the biggest trends in nail art today and there was a ton of it during fashion week.

Badgley Mischka’s luxurious collection, featuring several gowns that would look great at the Oscars, was complemented with Deborah Lippmann’s Red Silk Boxers, a metallic shade that dries matte.

The half-moon manicure is a nail art staple, but this season many shows featured a funky twist on the classic style.

Bold makeup and an exaggerated blue grey half moon manicure added whimsy to the mystical Threeasfour collection.

Several designers chose to go over the top and send some funky nail art down the runway.

The Blonds are notorious for their wild designs and bold nail art. Their Fall 2013 collection featured nails with images of Jack Nicholson in The Shining.

From the vibrant tropical prints at Issa to the neon color palette at House of Holland, London Fashion Week proves that less than stellar weather is no match for incredible spring fashion! Ofcourse, no runway would be complete without fabulous nail art and the collections at LFW informed of us some of the European nail trends for 2013. 

Much like at New York Fashion Week, barely there lacquers were pretty popular. At Kaelen, nude nail polish was accented with black to create a messy half moon manicure. Daks complemented their minimalist collection with a griege (grey and beige) lacquer mixed by Revlon nail artists.

Bright colors were also popular during London Fashion Week. Antonio Berardi introduced a beautiful neon salmon lacquer from Revlon. At PPQ, Butter London created cool water marble design with hot pink and black lacquer.

 

Another hit at LFW was Minx Nails. David Koma had Minx create 25 individual nail sets to correspond with each of his designs. At Francesca Marotta, the elegant designs were accented with silver nails.

Nail Trends from NYFW

New York Fashion Week wrapped up a few days ago and ofcourse nail art was front and center on the runway. Trends for Spring 2013 range from classic nude nails to unusual 3D manicures. Here are some of our favorite looks!

The biggest trend at NYFW was simple, dainty manicures. Marc Jacobs, Rodarte and Angel Sanchez all accessorized their collections with minimal nail art.

 

Several designers chose lacquer styles greatly influenced by their collections. Prabal Gurung had dripping crimson nails to match his dark, mysterious clothes. The nails at Kate Spade were printed with cheery white and pink gingham to coincide with the garden-themed looks. Assembly NY added some whimsy to bare nails with white doodles, evocative of high schoolers drawing on their nails with White-Out.

Some of the wilder nail art was 3D. “Psycho Beach Party” inspired the Blonds collection so the nails were ocean themed, including a red coral design. Joy Cioci had angelic white and silver caviar manicures. The craziest nail art at New York Fashion Week has to be from Binetti. These oyster shell nails may seem impractical, but they are perfect for this breezy collection!
