#NYFW Spring 2015: 2 nail trends Deborah Lippmann wishes would disappear
You won’t catch Deborah Lippmann with a French mani or pedi any time soon, but you will see her sporting nude, natural nails like these at Donna Karan, Spring 2015. Image courtesy of Deborah Lippmann.
Nail art is not dead (just being done in a much more subtle way). But there are two trends polish guru
Deborah Lippmann deems so totally over. The French pedi and toe nails that are just too long. "One of my pet peeves that I wish would go away is a toenail that hangs over," says Lippmann. "Especially when they’re really groomed and intentionally long. To me it’s just not a good look, the nail should be on the nail bed. If you ask me long toe nails and the French pedi are the things I wish would go away," says Lippmann.
For the Donna Karan Spring 2015 show, Lippmann kept both the toe nails and finger nails natural and clipped just at the end of the nail bed. The fingers were done in a "bisque-like" shade (not too grey or taupe), to go with the wash of grey shadow over the models’ lids, then mattified with a top coat for that mannequin-esque hand. There you have it. Straight from the creator of gorgeous nails herself, it’s time to shape up your toes and air-kiss that French pedi goodbye.
