Nail art has always had an urban edge. Born in the underground, it was a way for creatives to express themselves. Now nail art is becoming urbane as demonstrated during the September collections at New York Fashion week. Nail art has gone mainstream but has retained its splendor. Designers opted to include nail art as part of the details rather than as statements in their own right.


Nicole Miller opted for thin metallic horizontal lines. Tadashi Shoji imagined crisscrossed patterns overlaid with metallic gold. Nail art can be subtle, yet chic with finer details to bring more attention to the designs.


Reverse French manicure
Many designers offered nail art not at the tip, but rather at the base of the nail. Carmen Marc Valvo had her models walk with black nails and silver cuticles for a look that is both high fashion and decidedly goth. French manicures are the easiest look to tweak as most simply use two colors that can be crafted into half-moons at the base of tips.


Creatures of the Wind added a pop of nail art with gradient metallic tips. The look was both decadent and edge under the bright lights of the catwalk. Gradients nails can be achieved using any tools and pure imagination.


Negative space
Designers also selected negative space nails such Prabal Gurung for a dramatic effect that also stood as unique expressions on the hands of the models. Negative space can be lashings of colors or simply blocked out for a more graphic look.
