One of our favorite Fashion Week nail obsessions so far is from Lauren Moffatt's '60s country club-themed presentation. Models wore dresses in shades of honey yellow and mustard orange, looking as if they were straight out of a Wes Anderson film. The diagonal nails were inspired by the designer's quirky collection and created by OPI. We have a feeling we're going to see a lot more of these gorgeous diagonal nails that look like a slanted, slightly askew French manicure. Here's how to get the look:

1. Start with two coats of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu, $8, and let the basecoat dry completely.
2. Next, freehand a diagonal tip on each nail in OPI A Roll in the Hague, $8, for a pretty, dark orange diagonal.
3. If you don't have a steady freehand, try using a thin paintbrush for more accuracy.
4. Let dry and then finish with a clear topcoat.

    I'm not good at nail art so I'll let someone else do this for me with really cool colors

    Great new idea!! Also, if you don't have a sturdy hand, I like to use tape. But make sure the base coat dries Completely!! :)
