OPI hits the catwalk at New York Fashion Week

It’s called Fashion Week, but there’s a whole lot of beauty that goes on backstage! And one of our fave trends to spot every season? Nails! We got the chance to check out some of OPI’s magical nail work backstage this week and are sharing all the beautiful and quirky details with you!

The look: For her spring/summer 2013 New York Fashion Week presentation, the designer chose a nude nail with bright yellow tips. Cute twist on the traditional French manicure, huh?

The line: Let’s just call it “surf sophistication,” shall we? Jenni Kayne’s spring/summer 2013 line combined elements of beachwear and great color combinations with lean silhouettes and separates.

The nail colors: After seeing the OPI nail lacquer Need Sunglasses? on a friend’s nails, the designer specifically requested the shade for her models! The OPI shade Don’t Touch My Tutu was used as the perfect neutral base to provide a nice contrast with the bright accent.

The look: Umm super cute… just look at these photos! Retro, fun and sporty are all words I’d use to describe this gem of a collection.

The line: The bright, fun collection featured the orange-red and mustard yellow hues found in the nail designs very heavily.

The nail colors: Models sported nail designs inspired by Moffatt’s upcoming collection and wore two coats of OPI’s nail lacquer Don’t Touch My Tutu as the base. Half of the nails were finished off with a bright pop of diagonal color in A Roll in the Hague, and the remainder were decorated with a diagonal with one coat of OPI nail lacquer in The “It” Color topped with one coat of OPI nail lacquer in Don’t Talk Bach to Me.

The look: Dark yet soft at the same time. Ya know, ‘cuz girls want to show off all sides of their personality.

The line: The deep blue-gray shade Jason chose for the nails went quite well with his black, white and dark blue styles and gave a nice pop of color to the bright pink dresses in his collection.

The nail colors: OPI’s lovely lacquer Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees coated models’ fingers, while toes stayed neutral with the classic shade Samoan Sand.
