Neutral Nails with Impact

26 Mar

I was lucky enough to go backstage at London Fashion Week recently, and while the clouds of hairspray and lashings of mascara were present as always, it was noticeable how much more important the nails have become in creating the overall look.

At Mark Fast for example, Revlon nail guru Jenny Longworth talked us through a carefully considered look  – “vampire inspired’ two-tone nails blending Revlon Grey Suede into Revlon Smouldering.

This was demonstrated at shows such as Mara Hoffman in NY, where black polish was contrasted against a neutral half moon on the tips of the nails, and with the matte, sandstone-effect nails at Alexander Wang’s show.
