Best and Worst Nail looks of NYFW F/W16

This year we weren’t lucky enough to go to fashion week, but have instead been watching from our couch. We have rounded up the best and worst looks from NYFW Fall/Winter for you to see. This year the nails took it to another level with detail. So, check out our favorite looks from Fashion Week, as well as those ones that we were not fans of…

The good:

Glitter Glass Nails- this look was made with Essie polishes for the Wes Gordon show and was inspired by ‘downtown romantics and effortless elegance’. It was created by layering different glitter polishes for a multi-dimensional effect. We will be definitely attempting this amazing mani soon!


Negative Space Nails- created by Miss Pop for Marissa Webb this gorgeous look was achieved by using vinyl stencil stickers and Zoya ‘Willa’. Simple and classy!


Working Girl Nails- these fun and colorful nails were done for the Rachel Antonoff FW16 collection, drawing inspiration from the film Working Girl. Miss Pop created five different looks for this show, but this pink and red pattern matching the dress worn by the models was our fave!



The bad:

Furry Nails- this may have been the most discussed nail look of the entire week. We are not quite sure about it, it was created using CND Vinylux in Rubble and Cream Puff then adding brown or white faux fur. While it made a statement in the show, it’s probably not going to catch on as a trend. What do you think?


Nasty Nails- created using Chanel ‘Black Satin’, this look was designed to look like dirty nails. Literally our worst nightmare! Dawn Stirling created this look for Hood By Air by painting the nails then wiping the polish off before it was dry. We don’t approve and are pretty sure Coco wouldn’t like it either!
