Just last season, nail art was the only thing worth talking about when it came to manicures. It seemed like every fashion week guest and runway showed off bright, bedazzled, or playful nails: it seemed like our fingertips would never be the same again.
Fast forward to this season, and even though we're still seeing some uber-decorated nails, the latest way to make a statement is to avoid the statement altogether and go for subdued, neutral nails. Joseph Altuzarra (right), Phillip Lim 3.1, Monique Lhuillier, and Erin Fetherston, all showed off natural-looking nails that seem so elegant and fresh that I'm practically reaching for some nail polish remover as I type.
