Christian Louboutin at Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2015 NYFW

Fashion week season is upon us! That means I’ll be bringing you the scoop on the best nail art from the runways of New York. The Fall 2015 season was a bliss, it started slowly with the usual nudes and blacks and evolved into full on nail art action.

The big stand outs were the works of CND’s Jan Arnold and Casey Herman for China Glaze. Also cudos to Madeline Poole for staying true to herself and creating some fabulous geometric nail art for Cushnie et Ochs and to Essie’s Michelle Saunders for introducing the good old chevron manicure to the fashion folks.

Given that designers are usually hesitant to use nail art (some out of fear of drawing attention away from clothes), it’s remarkable these world-class manicurists can find a compromise between their creativity and designer’s limits. Choosing a nail colour for each show is a long process, Ali Magliveras, Essie Australia Ambassador said to me backstage last year at MBFWA “It may take weeks to settle on the colour…” That’s just the colour so imagine how long it takes to decide on nail art?

Now, let’s enjoy some of the best nail art from NYFW Fall 2015:

  • Finally some art! I’ve seen most of them, and there’s one that I liked very much that you didn’t mention ! The ones created by Naomi Yasuda for the Opening Ceremony (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/231302130838243545/)
    Thanks for this great article ! ?

    • Yes, exactly – so great to see some real nail art! And, actually I was going to include a film inspired design too but the photo that I had was not good enough and at the time of publishing this article I couldn’t find any replacements. So I choose not to include it. Fashion week manicures are just so hard to report on. First, you have troubles finding any nail art and then there are no good photos :( So thanks for supplying the link, it’s a great photo showing Naomi’s work really well. BTW how crazy were nails at the Blondes?! I’d love to try a set like this one day.

    I need tutorials of the Desigual and Mara Hoffman designs. I love the Novis manicure too but that I can figure out for myself. Thank you for a lovely blog! I’m so glad I found it.
