Inspiring Manicures from Fall/Winter 2011 Runway

Hey Guys,

I was looking at the photos from NY Fashion Week and they had some really interesting manicures this year. Some of them inspired me to experiment and I hope will give you some idea for future beautiful manicures...

Apparently, this Fall/Winter nudes and neutral colors dominated the runway along with the Metal finish nail polishes. Although sophisticated nail art have been created for some of the collections, most of the designers have chosen different colored tips manicure and half-moon manicure.

In my opinion, most astonishing and complicated manicures for 2011 Runway were created by CND this Fall. BUTTER London also had some interesting designs.

Additional photos of CND manicures for the various designers can be found here.

Although I wasn’t able to find Illamasqua manicures for the Runway, I think manicure from their latest collection Theater of the  Nameless definitely deserves a place in among Runway manicures with it’s creativity.

  1. I'm a big fan of the Phillip Lim one (the black half moon) :) I'm a sucker for that look :)

  2. yeah, the nude half-moon is nice and wearable. My favorite is Jen Kao
