#NYFW Nails

For Spring 2016, it seems minimalist and mod inspired nail art was the trend. Adam Selman balanced his feminine collection by giving his models a tomboy edge. Nail artists dipped actual nails into polish and stamped round shapes onto the model's nails. For Tanya Taylor's the manicurist designed a striped nail look that mimics the multicolored, layered jewelry of the Maasai people, giving each model her own unique combination. Prabal Gurung was about the two worlds of East meets West so the nail artist selected a pale yellow shade and added white shapes. "Each shape mimics the artistic curve of a brush stroke, and the unique color combination gives the feminine silhouettes a sporty edge.” For Phillip Lim's 10th anniversary, Sally Hansen added a stripe to honor his decade of style.

Inspiration

I gravitated towards Misha Nonoo’s nails. Her Spring 2016 collection was inspired by the idea of a movement in all senses. To complement this looks manicurist Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen's Global Color Ambassador, envisioned a minimalistic look with a bold twist... lightning bolts! Such a cute, simple idea to liven up a simple red mani. Also, a mani that works for fall. For my own version, I wore OPI's "Amore at the Grand Canal" from my Nicole Richie x Birchbox.

My attempt at being a hand model

You may recall last season I did Rodarte's minimalist design.

What nail trends will you be rocking?
