NYFW Nail Watch – Nail Art, Glitters and CalGel, Oh My!
A highlight of every NYFW season is seeing CND’s Jan Arnold and checking out her latest nail concept. I can always expect something unique and innovative and this season was no exception. The clear tips remind me of the futuristic nails from the Barbie show last February. Very space age with an extremely feminine shape. And don’t you just LOVE that ring?
p.s. Check out Jan’s Fashion Week Blog and CND’s Facebook page for all the latest backstage scoop. There just might be a little something about ME mentioned there!
Fanatics, I was so excited to meet a new manicurist on the NYFW scene, Julie Kandalec. You see, I wrote about Julie way back in the day when I spotted her entry in the Nails Magazine 2008 Cover Tech Contest and realized she lived in my area. Now she’s taking on Fashion Week and rocking some glittering, sequined nails.
Backstage at Charlotte Ronson, my pal Sarah from StyleIt and I couldn’t help but notice Avon hair stylist Tippi Shorter‘s fab curly locks and gorgeous smiling face. It was when we had the chance to interview her that her nails caught my eye.
Tippi blinged out her digits with a gold sparkler from KleanColor that she just happened to have in her bag for touch ups. Smart girl!
Of course you’ve heard all about my pal Heather Park the Sakura CalGel queen. Here’s an up close and personal look at her bejeweled design.
It was Heather who introduced me to another CalGel artist backstage at the Jeremy Laing show. Look how precise and crisp her lines are! The detail is amazing.
What do you think Fanatics? What kind of nails would you wear to Fashion Week?
