Nail Art Trends Spring 2014: New York Fashion Week

With summer coming up so fast, not only do we evaluate our clothing choices, but the colour of our nails too! This year’s rapid increase of stiletto shaped nails and crazy designs only mean one thing – there is even more to think about when it comes to choosing which fashion accessory you wish to flaunt.

New York fashion week has been an explosion of creme and white tones, painted cuticles and picturesque nail art.

Surprisingly, bright bold summer colours did not surface half as much as flesh like nail hues for a lot of the fashion houses. The look compliments a classical demeanour and stands out beautifully when combined with statement pieces.

Along with nude and barely there nails, statement art designs focused on painting half moon shapes along the cuticle area. Whilst others decided to layer the look with an additional pop of colour as the base coat. When done over the natural nail, it is a definite show stopper that makes you look twice. Something to try at home for a mini nail guru!

Some designers chose to do simple nail art by painting them horizontally and vertically. Only a few chose to do detailed nail art. The finer details really complete the entire look and give each outfit that extra ‘umph’ that every beauty lover goes for.

Foil wraps also made an appearance on the catwalk covering the centre of the nail. It created a cool chic vibe for the models. Their nails were partially covered, making the look easily achievable at home. It was all about effortless glamour.
