MBFWA ’12: The Biggest Nail Trends For Winter.
Wed, 9 May 2012 4:57PM
If Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is anything to go by, it seems it’s time to put your crazy nail art patterns on the back burner for a wee while because the reverse French Manicure is where the magic is at.
Lisa Ho got the Reverse French Manicure (RFM) ball rolling, by opting for a neutral base coat, topped off with darker tips, like navy and red to match the model’s coloured hair extensions. Fun, right?
Unlike the previous season’s this year, the nail trends were refreshingly simple so in case the RFM is a little too demanding, you can rest easy knowing that both bright and sorbet-hued nail lacquers, like yellow, lilac and teal also made a serious comeback. And if nudes are your caper, it seems Fashion Week’s favourite go-to girl, OPI Nail Lacquer in Samoan Sand, $19.95, was treated to a well deserved break with white taking over as the neutral du jour.
Love a statement nail, without the fuss? You can make like the models at Manning Cartell with OPI’s vibrant yellow/green lacquer, Did it On Em,$19.95.
Neutral but never boring, white lacquers were a huge hit with both Zimmerman and Bec & Bridge opting for these snow-white numbers: OPI Nail Lacquer in Alpine Snow and Don’t Touch My Tutu (a sheer white), both $19.95.
Are you ready to put nail art on the back burner?
