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

Bejeweled, studded, netted, textured, clawed ... the nail designs of the last fashion week were just as intricate and intriguing as the pieces that came down the runways. Fast forward to September: I'm a full day and a half in and it's looking like the runways are recovering from last season's nail art overdose and going cold turkey for Spring 2014.

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?
