NYFW Spring 2015 Trend Report: Top Nail Designs We Can’t Wait To Wear

New York Fashion Week may be all about the clothes, but backstage, it’s the nails that have us gawking. Here’s how to get some of our favourite nail looks from NYFW Spring 2015.

CND for Opening Ceremony

CND for Opening Ceremony Spring/Summer 2015

These marbleized nails featured at Opening Ceremony for NYFW Spring 2015 definitely caught our eye. While black was our favourite, light blue and pink base coats were also used. The team at CND applied layers of high-shine colour in saturated tones on each nail, then hand painted the veins of each nail for the marbling effect.

OPI for Dion Lee


Lead nail artist Miss Pop played with negative space at Dion Lee and focused on one side of each nail with a thick metallic stripe. Using My Signature is DC from OPI, a polish created in partnership with Coca-Cola, she painted a vertical stripe down just one side of each nail. Finish with a matte top coat and you’re good to go.

OPI for Charlotte Ronson


Miss Pop went for non-symmetrical nail polish design at Charlotte Ronson, creating a very different look for Spring 2015. Each model sported painted nails with a natural half moon, alternating with natural nails with a painted half moon. We love the pastel mint shade too!

Essie for Rebecca Minkoff

Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2015 nails were absolutely to die for. And the look is easy using just four colours from Essie: Blanc, Bikini so Teeny, Turquoise & Caicos and Lollipop. Apply Blanc as the base coat, then apply one coat of Bikini so Teeny to the bottom half of your nail. Overlap that bottom coat with Turquoise & Caicos on the top half of the nail, and use Lollipop to draw a horizontal line through the middle of your nail. Finish with a top coat to get that smeary look.

Essie for Sophiet Theallet

Manicurist Julie K made an interesting  double French tip mani using Essie’s Fiji and Turquoise & Caicos at Sophie Theallet. To get the look, start with a half-moon of Fiji on each tip, and when it’s dry, use Turquoise & Caicos over half of the existing half-moon for a pretty and unique French manicure.
