nyfw spring '15 {trend}: glossy, natural nails

new york fashion week has wrapped up, and i'm sure i'm not alone when i say i'm still absorbing it all; so many looks and trends were created for the runway that will shape and influence what we'll be wearing in the spring and summer of 2015. and not just the clothes, but everything from hair and makeup to nails and accessories…

 one trend that stood out to me was that of glossy, nude, natural nails. this is something every beauty girl has obsessed over, including me; creating the perfect nude, shiny nail ranks up there to finding that  fab LBD, a pair of amazing-fitting jeans and goes-with-everything-but-still-makes-a-statement handbag in your wardrobe.

the nail looks are far from bare, but have a base color on the nail on the natural side. any added art or texture is subtle and simple ~ good news for me since i rarely have time to spend on elaborate designs. let's take a look at some of these interpretations, shall we?

at Prabal Gurung models' tips were coated with wispy stripes as they prepared to walk the runway.

 Katie Jane Hughes created a nude nail using a Butter London nude base and completed the look with a diamond embellishment at Lela Rose.

the graphic nail art at Tibi was created by Jin Soon Choi using Georgette ~ a nude color ~ as the base with Chamonix used to finish the look.

Michelle Saunders for essie created a classic pink nail for the hands and an opaque pale pink nail for the toes {classics mademoiselle and fiji, respectively}, which paired perfectly with the colors and prints found throughout the Diane von Furstenberg collection.

for Altuzarra, Michelle Saunders created a delicate, feminine nail by using spaghetti strap on both the hands and feet. the sheer pink hue, reminiscent of rosy cheeks, completed the overall look.

for BCBG Max Azria the models took the runway in nude, natural nails that perfectly complimented the airy, boho ensembles.

to compliment Proenza Schouler's american sporswear-inspired collection, a minimal, glossy nail was worn by the models both the hands and feet

Julie Kandalec for essie used fiji to create a nail look to represent the Naeem Khan girl ~ elegant and done up, but not too glamorous.

at Rachel Zoe, butter LONDON polishes were layered {first Tea with the Queen, followed by Nail Foundation, topped with 999 Base Coat} to create a glossy, creamy effect.

Jin Soon created a soft, glossy nude to complement the sheer romanticism of the Vera Wang collection

a "new nude" by Deborah Lippmann coated model tips at the Narciso Rodriguez show

a high-shine nude nail was creed using Jin Soon Tulle to complement the cool, utilitarian aesthetic of the Rag & Bone show.

will you be wearing the glossy, natural tone nail look come spring 2015?
