We saw a lot of creative and fabulous nail colors at the Fall 2014 New York Fashion Week (NYFW). As it turns out, fashion week is not just about the clothes and the latest trends, it is also about the best nail art designs.

 

During NYFW runway models wore manicure styles ranging from a highlighted half-moon and a gilded tip to a bit of added sparkle. These nail styles are unique, wearable, eye-catching and can be totally recreated.

 

We were truly inspired by the styles illustrated during NYFW that we decided to pull together our own list of nail styles to watch out for this season.  To that end, please find below our top 5 nail trends for spring.
