TREND NEU­TRAL NAILS A NOT E ON NUDE

This neu­tral tone is so much more than just a pale putty hue. A “nude” is now a nat­u­ral-shade cat­e­gory that in­cludes sheer, pale pink, grey and even white.

THE “AC­TIVE” MANI This was the mani of the sea­son. Back­stage at Alexan­der Wang, nail guru Michelle Saun­ders de­fined it as a “short rounded nail with barely any free edge, which pre­vents catch­ing. It’s a sporty, fem­i­nine and has­sle-free man­i­cure.”

ON WHITE “It’s clean and fresh with dif­fer­ent ver­sions, whether it’s pink, sheer or opales­cent,” said man­i­curist Deb­o­rah Lipp­mann, who used a nude shade at all six of her New York shows, in­clud­ing The­ory and Nar­ciso Ro­driguez.

ON NAIL ART “It’s on a down­ward cy­cle, but give it a few years and it will come back up again,” said man­i­curist Mar­ian New­man, who con­ceived the nails at Vivi­enne West­wood, Man­ish Arora and Giles. “I’m a big be­liever in mak­ing it be­spoke. Make it just for you.”

ON SHAPE “When you think of nudes this sea­son, round is the It shape—peo­ple are look­ing for a fem­i­nine touch,” said man­i­curist Jin Soon, who com­bined two tau­pes to cre­ate a “rosy beige” that flat­tered all skin tones at Derek Lam.
