A popular nail trend at New York Fashion Week was going colourless. Black, almost black, white, white & black and nude nails dominated the runways. It was all black at Jill Stuart, Jeremy Scott, Marc Jacobs and Cynthia Rowley. Band of Outsiders and Nanette Lapore went for pure white, while Charlotte Ronson, Zimmerman, Kate Spade and Tibi rocked the B&W combo. Nude nails graced the runways at Alexander Wang, BCBG, Proenza Schuler, Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Derek Lam, Helmut Lang and the list goes on and on. Point taken: come Spring 2014 we'll let the fashion take front seat and have our nails be the stylish (sans colour) wallflower.
We commend for...
