13 Of The Coolest Nail Trends From Fashion Week

I just came across this article and wanted to share it with you guys!!! Very cool artsy looks for nails, love the colors and designs!!

Cushnie et Ochs: Engineered by Dashing Diva's Pattie Yankee, these super-pointy, "flesh-extension" nails are comprised of Dashing Diva's Mr. Right polish mixed with mineral makeup to match each model's skin tone. 

Yigal Azrouël Cut25
Butter London's Nonie Creme created this engaging, work-of-art pattern using a mixture of salmon pink, '80s turquoise, and pastel pistachio. 

Jason Wu: 
OPI blessed models' fingertips with MonSooner or Later, a vibrant orange-y red, because you can never go wrong with a such a classic shade. 

Joy Cioci: 
We freaked out over these lucite tips and delicate hand-painted lace design. Definitely a tough DIY project, but we presume this will popping up soon at a nail salon near you. 

Pamela Love:(MY FAV)
Essie manicurist Elle went for a deep brown and soft nude in a reverse French chevron to complement the feel of Love's angular yet earthy and nomadic collection. 

Dean Quinn:
CND channeled the illustrious days of Studio 54 with "Sunday at Studio 54" manicures. Long, rounded falsies were a nude mix of Copper Shimmer Effect, Colour in Putty, and topped at the cuticle with Desert Suede. 

Going for a lingerie-inspired look, Nonie Creme used Butter London's pink-nude shade called "Tea with the Queen." It's dusky hue is makes for a soft, sexy edge.  

Jen Kao:
CND's Wanda Ruiz went for a "track girl-meets-Romeo and Juliet" nail that she dubbed the "Lethal Love" manicure. Using an airbrush tool, bold hues of Midnight Sapphire, Anchor Blue, Rouge Red, and Green Scene were paired with Inkwell at the base, and finished off with a topcoat while still wet to give the look a bad-ass-yet-softened texture. 

Nicole Miller:
There was no missing these punchy, pink and purpleish-blue checked nails, courtesy of CND's Wanda Ruiz. Berry awesome.  

Seen at Odilon by Stacey Clark:
A MINX manicurist sports black and gold-spotted nails backstage at Odilon. Polka dots are definitely in this season! 

We couldn't resist snapping a pic of this stylist sporting a reverse-French mani that's both minimal and bold at the same time. Topping a natural nail with a brilliant red creates a sophisticated, yet almost intentionally, grown-out look.

Odilon by Stacey Clark:
MINX celebrity celebrity nail stylist, Lisa Logan, delivered a clean, fresh white and nude moon mani.

A little bit yacht-club, a little bit racetrack, these "jockey manicures put in the sporty frame of mind.
