Models at the Tadashi Shoji show wore China Glaze Nude and Innocence. Lead manicurist Joy Johnson and her assistants Alison Norris, Bernie Clark, and Gina Hicks applied China Glaze Fast Freeze Quick Dry Spray and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to ensure quick, smudge-free nails.

Light and nude nails ruled the New York runways. These colors served as the perfect backdrop for vibrant colored clothing. Pops of nail art and metallic also made appearances on the catwalks to play up sunnier looks. Photos where a city isn’t identified were taken during New York Fashion Week.
