Nailing It! Fall's Top NAIL TRENDS THE RUNWAYS PROVE THAT YOUR FAVORITE ART FORM IS ON THE RISE, FROM MINIMAL HAND PAINTING TO MAXIMAL EMBELLISHMENT - AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. BY KARIE L . FROST, NAILPRO MAGAZINE Trend Trend 3 1 Trend 2 # Essie @ Rebecca Minkoff Sally Hansen @ Tracy Reese KISS @ Erin Fetherston, French Revolution Minimal to the Max The New Nude Attitude Perfect smile lines? The new French manicure, seen at Tibi and Tadashi Shoji, discards this notion, allowing you to imperfectly swipe color across the nail tip with no regrets. But if you're seeking a more exacting design, follow celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunder's lead from the Rebecca Minkoff show: Double-up the color of your French and make it a chevron shape! "It's simple and modern," she says. What more could your client ask for? Impactful nail art needn't be overwrought - this was the message delivered from runway to runway. A single line, whether hand painted or a row of stones, kept the nail story clean and tight. Simple geographic shapes, like a single square near the moon at Cushnie et Ochs or traveling spheres at Zero + Maria Cornejo, all beg to be duplicated on your clients. Even the minimalist portrait nail received a dual-color update at the Tracy Reese show. "We wanted it to be modular without sharp lines, so it just seamlessly blends together," says Sally Hansen nail lead Tracylee of the revamped design. If the mere thought of neutrals makes you yawn, get ready to take a renewed interest in nudes. Backstage, beige became anything but bland when used as a base for basic gold embellishments at Erin Fetherston or marbled together for a translucent, stained-glass design at Rodarte. What's more, buff looked brilliant as a negative space element at Kaelen as well as partnered to monochromatic effect with toned-down mauve and gold at Mara Hoffman. The verdict: Neutrals can be as nervy as your boldest lacquers! BE AUT YLIN K | NAI L I NG IT ! | 20 1 5 | PHOTO BY DIANE BONDAREFF # # 25
