New York Fashion Week kicked off Feb. 6, and for those of us interested in fashion, it’s a really big deal. The world’s most elite designers bring forth their very best, and their sartorial visions dictate trends for the upcoming season. On the flip side, NYFW also brings a lot of new design concepts to appreciate, even if you can’t pronounce Schiaparelli, you have no idea what a “Birkin” is and you are never ever going to drop $900 on a pair of heels with red soles.
If you can’t afford the excesses of the runway (and most of us can’t), at the very least your fingers can join in on the fun. In recent years, painstakingly decorated nails have appeared on runways as well as the red carpet. Celebrities such as Kelly Osbourne and Zooey Deschanel have become known for their funky manicures just as much as their killer wardrobes. It goes to follow that the nails of Fashion Week are just as important as everything else, and in honor of this DIY trend, we’ve rounded up the best nail art on the web (much of it designer-inspired) for your viewing pleasure.
