Spring 2011 Nail Color from Vogue Fashion’s Night Out
If you caught any of this show, you’d see how light and dainty still rivals bold and sultry in the nail color palette. Pure at Heart and the Fifties Flair inspired models wore a sheer pink color – Fashion Week – by Dashing Diva, while the Rock Chic inspired models showed off the new Fall 2010 gun metal metallic polish shade of Penthouse Views. A stunning dark burgundy nail shade known as Dark PR gave the Jazz-Age Cool inspired models a dramatic manicure.

Gold Foil Nails for Cushnie et Ochs
At the Eyebeam Studio, models’ nails shined gorgeously as if dipped in gold. To really accentuate the flowing nature of the clothing, models’ nails were first painted with a basic clear base coat and then received a gold foil application onto the nails for a shiny and glamorous effect.
