Now that fashion month has gotten into full swing, here are some nails that definitely caught our attention during New York Fashion Week!

The Blonds

NYFW Nails - The Blonds 3

CND co-founder Jan Arnold created the nail looks (of which there were several, and only a few are shown here!) at The Blonds Fall 2013 show, which was inspired by old-school Hollywood horror. As a result, manicures featured Janet Leigh’s face from Hitchcock’s Psycho and a still of Jack Nicholson’s character from The Shining, among other extremely varied and dynamic nail designs (and lengths, as this show ranged from standard almond-shaped nails to talons sharpened to a point). Really fantastic mix that was perfectly in tune with the collection!


NYFW Nails - Ruffian

Keri Blair Walden for MAC Cosmetics created the nail look for Ruffian’s Fall 2013 show. The look was meant to be indicative of a Victorian lady in mourning, with black veils covering cameo-clad nails. A refreshing gothic lean if we ever saw one!


NYFW Nails - Emerson

In a similar vein to Ruffian, Emerson Fall 2013 featured a lace-inspired look in a palette of porcelain white, soft cream and black. Done by Miss Pop for Orly, the nail look was actually meant to mimic a particular swatch of fabric from the collection. The nails were painted white, then a fishnet pattern was applied in a cream shade using a detailer brush, and floral details were added with a dotting tool.

Rebecca Minkoff

NYFW Nails - Rebecca Minkoff (ESSIE)

Nails at Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall 2013 show were eye-catching and they were extremely simple to create, with several drops of five different polishes (specifically Essie polishes in Aruba Blue, Go Overboard, Blue Rhapsody, Penny Talk and As Gold As It Gets) being dropped on the nail and then swirled together with a small brush to create the oil slick effect.
