City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

Dashing Diva and Creative Nail Design took charge of the hands and feet of most of Fashion Weeks runway models. The color palate: nude. The look: healthy, natural, high shine nails.

Kicking off the trend was Dashing Diva at Badgley Mischka with She E.O., a basic light nude while CND upped the ante at Max Azria with a sandblasted look using two coats of Putty and Air Dry top coat for super shine. In order to achieve a clean, neutral and sophisticated look, Tahari opted for Dashing Diva’s Well Connected.

Adding a pinch of color to their nudes, Milly designer Michelle Smith chose CND’s Marshmallow Rose, a pale pink to accessorize the preppy punk pieces. For a girly, feminine look the Dashing Diva team used Social Climbing at Tibi. The light pink shade has a touch of shimmer adding a bit of innocence.

Though not nude but most definitely noteworthy, at Monique L’Uhllier CND manicurist Roxanne Valinoti matched the finale dress perfectly by creating a mossy brown shade using one coat of Oilslick and one coat of Raisin in the Sun topped with matte top coat. The perfect shade to keep you on trend but not too trendy.
