The 20 Best Manicures of New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer ’15

When it comes to the manicures spotted backstage at New York Fashion Week, there are typically two distinct categories they can fall under: bold, eye-popping nail art and simple nudes.  And while the former has certainly reigned supreme these last few seasons, it’s rare that these two schools of nail design ever cross over.  That is, until this season.

While making our rounds backstage at New York Fashion Week earlier this month, it became abundantly clear to us that next season’s best manicures are neither bold nor boring but rather, the perfect marriage of the two.   With subtle hints of ombre designs, graphic textures and perhaps just a touch of sparkle, manicurists created looks that were not only eye-catching, but also unique and completely wearable.  And with color palettes that range from pops of lilac, mint greens and papaya to stark white and sheer cream, there’s truly no shortage of options to consider.  Of course, we’ve done the heavy lifting for you, scouring our collection of backstage notes to bring you the 20 best manicures of the spring/summer ’15 season.  Scroll through the slideshow below to uncover the nail looks you’ll be lusting for in the months to come!

The Top 8 Models of New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer ’15

While fashion month seems like a grueling four weeks for editors and buyers, it’s perhaps most exhausting for the models. On top of all the travel, these hard-working ladies also face early call times and late-night fittings — making sleep but a distant memory for most.  Needless to say, it takes a special breed of model to walk dozens of shows per year, but the ones who can pull off the impressive feat hold a special place in the business for seasons to come.

So, who was this year’s top catwalker? Following the end of New York Fashion Week, we tasked ourselves with narrowing down the top models of the season — a list that is based on the sheer number of shows the model walked from start to finish.  See who took home this year’s top 5 spots in the slideshow below!
