Fashion Week Fall 2011 Nail Trends

Happy Fashion Week friends! Can you believe we're already gearing up for the fall 2011 season!? Well, anything to distract me from the frost bite that is this winter, right!?  

Fashion Week nail veterans, CND added their usual "polish" to several shows. It's always fun to see how they collaborate with the designers to create nail art that is as important and influential to seasonal trends as the accessories, hair and makeup. Check out their latest creations:  

Carolina Herrera- Nail pro Wanda Ruiz created a regal Crown Jewel Manicure using two coats of Dark Ruby topped with glossy Super Shiney Top Coat to compliment the fresh faced models and their elegant chignons. Nails were kept short and square, and high shine color contrasted luxurious fabrics in silk, velvet and suede.

Sachin & Babi-Nail pro Angi Wingle used Fall 2011 limited edition Midnight Sapphire Colour (out in September) to accesorize a rough, edgy, and sexy style.  Sachin & Babi showed trench coat jackets and asymmetrical tops in cool prints and luxe jerseys as well as statement T's, and body skimming touches dresses. The collection was inspired by "the true grit sensibility of the jazz age motorcycle culture of the 20's". The deep hued blue was paired with low pony tails and black wing-tipped eyes.

At Monique Lhuillier, Wanda Ruiz presented the Shady Lady Manicure - comprised of Silver Chrome topped with Desert Suede, iced with Fall 2011 limited edition Dark Amethyst Colour. Pedicures were decked out with two coats of velvet aubergine Dark Amethyst for a cavalier finish. This goth, dangerous nail, paired with ribbon-esque hair and deep violet, smokey eyes accessorized nudes, blood red, and cheetah print fabrics on the runway.
