The fashion capitals of the world are slowly closing down their fashion weeks. Out of these most important days in fashion, we saw the ever-present floral trend from designers like Oscar de la Renta and Giorgio Armani and makeup trends such as bright orange lipstick and blue eyeshadow, seen on models from Marc Jacobs and DKNY. Another aspect of the model is gaining more attention: their nails. Beige, nude, and other subtle sheer colors seemed to stand out the most during the womenswear weeks in Paris and London, making natural nails “the look” for 2014. Nail techs for designers like Leonard and Valentino showcased this nail trend in Paris.
London saw variations of a simple neutral color; the Jean-Pierre Braganza show added a slight black swish on the side of the nail which some call a “sideways French”.
Also at London, makeup artists for Tom Ford went with a very sheer color that looks like plain topcoat or a very light pink.
So what does this say for nail trends of 2014? It’s simple (pun intended). Simplicity is key if you want in-style nails this year. I would say this season’s nail trend could be called “naturally pretty”: bright colors and in-your-face designs are a no-no if you want to be in style. Minimal to no artwork and plain shades will make your nails look fresh off the runway.
