The Nails Of NYC Fashion Week 2011

So, we’ve seen an overload of the hair and makeup at this week’s NYC fashion week, but what about the nail trends?

Companies like CND and Dashing Diva are all over the catwalk with Spring/ Summer’s must-have creations….

Here’s a look at what’s to come on our tips:

At Jen Kao, CND nails by Kristina Estabrooks were inspired by organic, living things in the swampy depths of nature. Long, almond shape nails were based with Gold Chrome and Midnight Sapphire, and accented with drops of Gold Pearl, Iced Blue Shimmer, and Midnight Sapphire for a psychedelic stained glass effect. An almost aquatic quality took hold to match mind-bogglingly twisted hair, green metallic eye shadow and glittery bronze brows.

Jason Wu’s majestic, baroque nails were out in full force – Roxanne Valinoti created gilded burgundy manicures using Dark Ruby layered with Bloodline, and gilded with Gold Chrome smile lines. These manicures matched slicked back ponytails with a flash of gold leaf (CND). 

At Tibi, Pattie and her team created neon pink French manicures for models to accent the designer’s hot pink accessories (Dashing Diva).

At Imitation, Pattie used Dashing Diva’s Date Night polish for a classic red nail look, requested by the designer, Tara Subkoff.

Celebrity nail technician Pattie Yankee and the Dashing Diva nail tech team worked backstage and created glitter nails for models at the Jeremy Scott show.
