New York Fashion Week is winding down. Although the runway is the place to display next season’s threads-to-come, the newest trend in nail art and colors are also revealed under the big tent. I admit, I’m a lacquer fiend. As a self-proclaimed polish connoisseur I giggled with joy once I got a peek at OPI’s newest collections on a few of the Fashion Week runways. The big kahuna of nail color made a guest appearance in some of the most anticipated shows. Ladies, are you ready for this?!
BGBG MAX AZRIA was the first designer to sport OPI polish as the nail accessory of choice. The models’ fingers were dipped in Samoan Sand, a to die for translucent beige with pink undertones. Its the perfect nude tone for the office professional and the offbeat hipster.
OPI strutted its stuff alongside Rebecca Taylor designs for the second year in a row. This show chose two selections from the recently released Texas Collection by OPI. Suzi Loves Cowboys, a deep cocoa brown, were brushed onto hands while San Tan-tonio, a sandy tan tone, decorated toes. Can we get a three-peat?
The edgy stylings of Charlotte Ronson were also complimented by Samoan Sand. Front row guests including Olivia Munn, Sophia Bush, Mena Suvari, and Kim Kardashian were all privileged enough to admire the hue up close and personal.
The OPI nail lacquers featured at NYFW gives us an idea of what to expect from the brand from the coming seasons. Shades of cocoa, honey, khaki, beige, and their distant cousin grey are the perfect accents to a Fall ensemble. Following the trends of the Fall season’s fashions, nudes, neutrals, and maybe a matte or two seems to be the direction nails toward once the leaves begin to turn. I’m excited and am definitely waiting on my local Ulta to get the Texas by OPI collection in stock.
