Fashion Week Nails

below are some of my favorite nail looks from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2013. what was once an overlooked accessory is now an integral part of the designers runway look. for those who predict that the nail art trend might be waning, think again. new finishes, designs and appliqu├ęs where found all over the runways for Fashion Week. 

on to my favorite manicures!

Alexander Wang nails by CND
these press on nails created by CND breathe new life into the term 'press on'. hand painted using a feathering brush then buffed to become matte, these stone finished nails are rockin'.

Emerson nails by ORLY
this lace finish nail art create by ORLY nailed it at the Emerson Fashion Week show. even better, this manicure is surprisingly easy to accomplished. stay tuned for a tutorial.

Prabal Gurung by butter LONDON
Prabal Gurung aesthetic is so cool which means of course they would skip the high gloss finish. of course.

Donna Karan nails by MAC Cosmetics
Donna Karan is a designer that has earned her place at Fashion Week. you don't stay on top without being consistent, and what is more consistent than a nude nail? kudos MAC Cosmetics.

Libertine nails by butter LONDON
much like Libertine, the eclectic collage found on the runway nails included color, studs and jewels - one of my favorites of the bunch. i have a penchant for all things colorful and sparkly, especially nails. well played butter LONDON.
