Inspired by a dark, mythical forest, the Nicole Miller A/W 2015 collection featured deep jewel tones and called for a “smoky Chelsea girl” beauty look in shades of brown and dark, rich nails.
Spanish brand Desigual continued its awesome nail art streak at the A/W 2015 show with a look that was “inspired by an artist’s sketch board, mood board, color stains and brush strokes”. To get the vibrant artsy look, manicurist Keri Blair first mixed M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquers in Before Dawn, Vestral White and Quiet Time for a khaki, grey-green base color before adding layers of gouache paint with a fan brush, toothpicks, mascara wands and straws. Next, she applied M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquer in Sparkledust using a dry-brush technique and finished with M·A·C Studio Nail Lacquers in Nocturnelle and Vestral White for extra texture and dimension.

Inspired by “Americana”- a mash up of the 1920’s, 60’s and 70’s – the Creatures Of The Wind A/W 2015 collection referenced psychedelic and progressive rock and called for a beauty look that was devoid of shine.
Inspired by the joy of flight, the Tadashi Shoji A/W 2015 collection evoked a feeling of weightlessness and aerodynamic seaming that inspirits movement. This translated into a gorgeous beauty look with gold glittery eyes, glossy lips and a sponged nail.
At Giles Spring/Summer 2015, models wore a look inspired by French photographer Sarah Moon. The eyes were smoked out in washes of grays and blacks while the nails popped in graphic black and green.
Honor Spring/Summer 2015 showed us how a pop of blue on the eyes and nails can be oh-so-refreshing and perfect for Spring!
