Once mother nature turns up her thermostat, the fashion rules change. In the winter its all about bags and boots. During the heat waves in the mid-year months a lady’s nails take priority. NYFW provided nail color company China Glaze with its fourth consecutive opportunity to share their high-quality polishes with the world’s fashion elite. China Glaze is one of my personal go-to brands for nail lacquer. They have the vibrant colors any edgy gal would go gaga for and they’re big 3 free. That’s right, no DBP, toluene, or formaldehyde. Say no to toxins!
Tadashi was one of the designers to feature CG. He actually has a color of choice. Innocence is a sheer, pale pink shade that allows the beauty of your natural nail to peek through. Tadashi is known for his elegant designs and this polish is the perfect pink to accent his designs. Its just enough color to see without overshadowing the fashions.
The 1960s mod designs of Ivana Helsinki consisted of velvet, patterned pieces, and those chunky heels we all adore. Hair was all beehived and hair sprayed up. Makeup for the models was more enhanced around the eyes with a coal black mascara and winged eyeliner. Such a dramatic presentation needs no help. To keep focus where she wanted it, Ivana chose a clear nail provided by Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat. The speed of any NYFW show calls for a quick dry nail covering and they chose the right one!
Animated designer Richie Rich is known for his vivid designs and needed a polish able to keep up. The ‘punk’ looks from the runway featured Midnight Mission with Devotion, Nova, and Solar Flair all layered on the ring finger. The more sophisticated looks were accompanied by Lubu Heels with Passion and Medallion on the ring finger. Oh, don’t think the fellas didn’t partake in the festivities. Male manis had Nova and Devotion layered on four fingers with Liquid Leather on the ring. Fierce!
