Polished: Best of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011


The Blonds

CND’s Kristina Estabrooks made another dazzling rendition of nail art at The Blonds last night.  New York Fashion Week may not be over, but I do not need to look any further than The Blonds’ show to know what manicures will be my favorites of the season:

February 16, 2011 – Where were you at 7pm this evening? If your answer is not, “At The Blonds show,” you’re about to wish it was…

Tonight at The Blonds, CND‘s Kristina Estabrooks introduced 22 handmade, theatrical manicures inspired by Eastern culture meets ultra glam – in the form of fortune cookies (“You don’t have to be blonde to be a Blond”), red sparkly Chinese characters (translated to “Blonds Love Diamonds”), “HIYA” and googly-eyed nails, and absolutely fabulous “Tranny-cures” comprised of Swarovski crystals and crushed glass with ombre undertones to color coordinate with outfits on the runway. Thai nails shaped with blinged-out hair clips, and dragons curled from thumb to pinkie were just some of the surprises to be seen. Matched with technicolor eyes and glittery hair pieces in afro and cleopatra bob shapes, this collection put the Delightful in DRAMA.

I wish I was at The Blonds last night indeed.  Check out more pictures of the fabulous nails after the jump:

  1. I saw the 4th picture and I thought ‘oh red nails, nothing special’ and then I saw the giant dragon that was attached! These nails are crazy but very awesome!
