All the backstage nail art we’re loving at New York Fashion Week
When a model hits the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, there are certain things you notice first: her bold outfit, her fancy hairstyle, or her killer confidence. Even though our eyes typically go to these things first, a runway look is the sum of many parts — and not just the obvious ones.
Backstage beauty is the unsung hero of NYFW. It takes a big glam squad to prep models for shows, and some of our favorite backstage beauty gurus are the manicurists. In fact, nail art plays a big role in bringing runway looks together.
NYFW nails have been so incredibly on point so far this season. Here are some of the looks that have us reaching for the polish.
These fantastically feminine nails at Rebecca Minkoff.
Obsessed with Caroline Vreeland's look at @rebeccaminkoff today. Thank you @carolinevreeland for being an amazing model. And thanks to @GELighting for making sure my photos are bright and crisp, and helping my camera lens see clearly. #RevealMyLook #NYFW #ss17

This futuristic look at Desigual.
MAC Senior Artist @keriblair found inspiration from Instagram trends for @desigual's SS17 manicures. These chrome nails were created using silver polish, then finished with holographic foil for a futuristic twist on French tips #regram @nailsbykerib #MACBackstage #NYFW #MACSeniorArtist #macnails
