Fashion Week is just getting started and already we are seeing a trend: metallic nails. Danielle Candido of Morgan Taylor wanted to emulate the coolness of the Creatures of the Wind girl by creating a two-tone manicure. Candido used Could Have Foiled Me as a base. A brassy crescent moon was added along the cuticle in Give Me Gold and Bronzed and Beautiful. No top coat was used to give the nails an oxidized look.

If you love the broken glass look, Essie has an easy way to polish these silvery shards onto your nails. Rita Remark was inspired by effortless elegance at Wes Gordon, so she used Essie Sand Tropez, Hors d'Oeuvres, and Set in Stones to bedazzle nails for the runway. Remark recommends using Gel.Setter top coat to keep glittery polish secure.
