Hot Off the Presses

Make Fashion Week About Nails

Glamour magazine's September 2012 Fashion Issue featured five simple nail art ideas inspired by the colorful prints and patterns soon to be displayed on the runway for Fashion Week.

  1. 3-D Shadow Nails: Layering graphic shades had a dramatic crescent-moon effect at 3.1 Phillip Lim. Start with a coat of black, then add a thin stripe of gray and a highlight in white. (Essie's Blanc, Chinchilly, and Licorice.)

  2. Nearly Nude Nails: At Preen, bone was the new neutral. Mix beige and white to re-create the huge.

  3. Psychedelic Nails: To do Nicole Miller's hypnotic spirals, use a toothpick. It's okay if the colors blend a bit. (CND's Electric Orange, Anchor Blue, Bicycle Yellow, and Plumville.)

  4. Navy Blue Nails: As moody and sophisticated as black, the navy at Rebecca Taylor felt slight more casual, like a pair of dark-wash jeans. (OPI's Road House Blues.)

  5. Gilded Nails: Sally Hansen and designer Prabal Gurung joined forces on a gold to complement the hues in his show. Try soft, glittery golds for fall.
