Is Nail Art Trending Again?
The Fall ’14 season officially marked the end of the nail art craze—or so we thought. While the likes of Prabal Gurung, Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, and Alexander McQueen coated models’ nails with pared-back, creamy flesh tones, rainbow hues and intricate designs made a comeback this week. Hannah Bronfman debuted a leopard-spotted manicure inspired by Givenchy’s Fall ’14 collection via Instagram, while Alessandra Ambrosio showed some World Cup spirit with a blue, green, and yellow Brazilian-flag-inspired paint job. And last night at Stella McCartney’s annual Resort ’15 garden party, manicurist Madeline Poole lifted a colorful superhero print from the collection and interpreted it into a color-blocked gel mani. (Catwalkers, however, wore a more traditional nude dubbed Bare Dare from Sally Hansen’s forthcoming Miracle Gel collection.) While we likely won’t be dusting off our striping brush this summer, we’re all for a thematic mani moment.—Emily Farra
