NYFW Trend Report: Bare Nails Are In, Polish Is Out
Enjoy your nail art while you can ... come spring, reaching for the nail polish remover will be en vogue
At every show, I interview the lead artist for hair, makeup and nails. But at Richard Chai yesterday, nails were nowhere to be found. Then, one of the publicists told me there were "no nails" and apparently they had to scramble to find nail polish remover. Fortunately, one of the makeup artists had some in her kit, and they passed it around to all the girls to take off any polish from other shows. Then, at Marissa Webb, I spotted one lone manicurist in the back corner ... taking polish off, and that's it. Done. By the time I got to Jason Wu, the final nail was put in the coffin: I was informed that the models were indeed wearing some polish -- one coat of Lancôme clear topcoat. As the saying goes: three makes a trend.
What do you think? Coincidence? Or has the nail art bubble finally burst?
