Sure, New York Fashion Week got us excited for springtime to come, but the cold truth remains that we have to shiver through an impending winter season before we can wear the warm-weather trends seen at the major shows. Blame it on Internet culture, but we are a bit impatient. Lucky for us, we can test-drive the alluring nail trends of NYFW right now. Fingers, rejoice!
Join us backstage at the shows for three of our favorite designers—3.1 Phillip Lim, Prabal Gurung, and Tanya Taylor—and scope out a trio of stunning nail looks along with emerging shade trends. Then check out our guide on how to achieve these for yourself using Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, a no-light, two-step gel that provides up to 14 days of color and shine. Here, we break down the whimsical nail strokes of Gurung’s pastels-and-white combos; the high-shine, chrome-silver stripes from Lim, which give your nails an athletic edge; and the layered bright hues from Taylor, which are inspired by the handmade artistry of African jewelry.
Print out these infographics, grab those gel polishes, and start displaying these miniature works of art right on your fingertips. Spring fashion may feel a lifetime away, but when it comes to, ahem, nailing these looks, you can say that you’ve always been ahead of your time.
