Fashion Week Trend: Barely There Nails

Feb 11 2012 - 7:47am

For the past several seasons, nail art has gone positively wild on the runways, so it was inevitable that we'd see a backlash. Fall 2012 is showing hints of a more subtle route, sending out manicures that are high on gloss but feature faded, sometimes altogether absent color. From BCBG to Richard Chai, there are a lot of new ways to wear next to nothing.


At Libertine, putty-colored nails matched the gritty ambiance of the show.


Models at BCBG walked the runways with nearly nude nails in OPI Passion.

M. Patmos

At M. Patmos, models had a bold take on light nails, wearing CND polish in Silver Chrome topped with two coats of semi-sheer CND polish in either Putty or Desert Suede.

Richard Chai Love

At Richard Chai Love, models wore Essie Glamour Purse, an almond taupe.


Honor's nails had a softly shimmery, sheer polish that gave nails a hint of unexpected texture.
