During this New York Fashion Week, I didn’t follow the catwalk shows as closely as I usually do. I found myself drawn into what was going on backstage. For me, the hair, make-up and in particular, nail trends are always the best bits. You can be inspired and imitate without it costing an absolute fortune.
So, for those of us who don’t have a fortune to spend:
Sally Hansen for Prabal Guruing in Angel Bite
It’s weird that I find this appealing, not least because of all my blood-related phobias. I love that its theatrical and macabre without being completely over-the-top.
Revlon Top Speed nail enamel in Spirit, worn for the Rag & Bone show
White nails. White goes with everything. It’s the new black. Was that too obvious?
OPI for Jason Wu
Or maybe this is the new black: a colour I can only describe as off-black. I love it! This is OPI in Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees. Wouldn’t you buy it for the name alone?
Essie for Carolina Herrera
I never opt for a French manicure- it should be the ultimate in neutral sophistication but I think it always ends up with the white looking too white for an overall unnatural look. This, to me is what a French manicure should look like: clean and simple. You can achieve this by applying the white tip first, followed by two layers of Essie nail polish in Adore-A-Ball. Wouldn’t this be the perfect wedding look?
