If you’re a huge Project Runway fan like I am, then the thought of fan favorites from various seasons returning to compete gets you all kinds of excited. That’s the premise for Project Runway All Stars, the spin-off of the famous design-based reality show.

A close-up shot of one of the nail art looks that I created as part of team @geraldineholford with @laurenbbeauty which was featured on last night's episode of Project Runway All-Stars entitled, "Sketching with Sharks". The look was a collaborative effort with designer Sonija Williams, influenced by her stunning, avant garde Red-Bellied Piranha inspired dress. Many thanks to Gerry & Lauren B for the opportunity to be creative and work with such amazing products and individuals!!! #nailingitnyc #idonails #nailartist #laurenbbeauty #prallstars #gold #studs #projectrunway #bts #nailfashion #nailart #itsallaboutthenails

While this isn’t the first time nails have appeared on the runway, it is a rare occurrence. Hair and make-up are usually offered to designers and models, but nails are usually left out (or at least not filmed), which is funny considering their increasing presence at Fashion Week.

My favorite nail design for @notequal #FabioCosta on @projectrunway #PRAllstars #swimmingwithsharks episode. This design was based on his own nail art that he was wearing when we had our consultation. @laurenbbeauty @thewallgroup #paintsplatternails #nailart #projectrunway #projectrunwayallstars #pras #xoxo #runwayreadynails #laurenbbeauty #nailart #nailartwow #nailartaddicts

So I was particularly happy to see Lauren B Beauty sponsor nail art for the last week’s avant-garde challenge. The designers went all in with the nail looks, created with Lauren B products. Nail professionals Teresa King and Geraldine Holford contributed to bringing nail art to the runway.

What do you think, is nail art in or out when it comes to runway fashion? What other reality shows should feature more nail art?
