Fashion week was full of little yummy fashion details. Let’s take a look beyond thebeautiful dresses and focus on the polish (pun intended) of what makes a fashionablelook actually come together. Designers showing at fashion week are perfectionist inevery sense of the word, so something as simple as a manicure was given attention. Itmay seem a bit basic, but the nails are an outlet for expression. Take an up close lookat the nail art the models were wearing on the runways for SS 2012.Jenni Kayne – Our favorite west coast designer represented with a clean nude look.This polish is simple and natural, which goes well with any desired look. The showdisplayed a fresh hipster style.Monique Lhuillier – Known for her elegant designs and wedding gowns, the nails at
the Monique Lhuillier’s were prim and proper sporting tan bases with black tips. Thedays of white tip are in the past and getting more creative with designs is the future.Ruffian – Special nails for a special showing. Check out these tuxedo nail designs.From the side it looked like a silver streak across black nail polish for a moredramatic look.Jason Wu – More dramatic nails were seen on the Jason Wu models. We saw blacknails with nude tips which were a completely elegant and fashion forward touch forhis well put together show. We can tell that the days of one color coats are quicklyfading.
3.1 Phillip Lim – Nude nails with black nail bed art is a subtle touch for a naildesign, but adds a bit of extra style to this look. We actually like the idea of a two tonenail to bring out the uniqueness of a style.Jen Kao – Best in show had to be the nail art from the Jen Kao show. We love theOriental art design with a metallic blue design and gold tips. It also has a little bit oftexture for a bit of extra fashion and technique.
The Blondes – This gold and green design deserves an honorable mention. We alsosee a bit of the dagger shape which adds to the mystic and allure of this nail design.We can look to the fashion world more and more to experiment with their naildesigns. The old days of acrylic squares are old business and we can’t wait to seewhere it’s going to head. For sure we’ll be there to bring you the fashion scoop whenwe find out.
