Deborah Lippmann was the creator for the nails at Kate Spade’s Fall 2013 show, which featured two different polish looks (a custom-combo of bright pink and a more purple-tinged fuchsia, as well as a creamy black) applied to almond-shaped talons, accented with a gold pyramid stud, which echoed pyramid accents in the accessories of Kate Spade’s fall collection.
Below are even more highlights of nail looks we’re feeling from the Fall 2013 shows at New York Fashion Week!
The entire beauty look at Cynthia Rowley’s Fall 2013 show played with purple tones in varying intensities, ranging from sheer plum tones on eyes to full-force wine shades on nails in the form of Deborah Lippmann’s own Dark Side of the Moon polish, which was finished with a matte top coat for added impact.

Nails at Alexander Wang’s Fall 2013 show were created by CND under the direction of CND co-founder Jan Arnold. The length was kept conservative with the focus being placed on the finish of the nails, which was dubbed a “sandstone” manicure. A nude polish was applied to nails with a fan brush from the sides towards the centre. After completing with a top coat, the nails were then buffed to wear down the polish through the centre of the nail. The result is an understated and modern twist on the standard nude nail.

Prabal Gurung worked with Sally Hansen to create nail colours that were used for his Fall 2013 runway show. The colours being released later this year are pictured above (from left to right: Loden Green, Coat of Arms and Night Watch), and the two stars of the runway show were the gold Coat of Arms and the army shade called Loden Green. Jin Soon Choi started with a base of Coat of Arms and then created a “modern moon” manicure by using two diagonal strokes of Loden Green to create a triangle shape.
