In case you missed it, NAILS got backstage at some of the hottest New York Fashion Week shows to get you the inside scoop on the nails that walked the runways. The backstage area is where models eat while hair and makeup artists work their magic. Nail techs work tirelessly, sizing tips or applying polish. I definitely have newfound appreciation for nail technicians after this exhausting experience. You can read more about my trip to NYFW in the November issue of NAILS. Until then, walk backstage in my shoes while keeping up with my NYFW experience.
