Essie at New York Fashion Week: Day 3

Brooks Brothers Zac Posen SS16 Essie NYFW

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is when nailphiles like me get excited because not only do you gain colour inspiration from talented fashion designers, but you can see upcoming nail, style, and beauty trends.

You probably visit Swatch And Learn because you’re a fellow beauty fan, and, if you’re like me, you’ll enjoy seeing the nail polishes and other beauty products we love in action. Witnessing how all the elements play a salient role to pull an entire ensemble together truly makes runway shows art in motion.

Since some of you enjoyed my posts on the blog and social media about NYFW Days 1 and 2, I’m going to post more.

Today’s post features looks from Essie New York Fashion Week Day 3!

My favourite look from Day 3 is the one above, which was from the Brooks Brothers by Zac Posen show.

I’m a fan of combining red (or orange) and blue because they’re strong shades that create a powerful manicure. (Together, they make me think of Superwoman! I’ve been known to combine the shades in my fashion, too, like in my Instagram photo here.)

Check out the rest of this blog post for additional photos from the Alexander Wang, Brooks Brothers by Zac Posen, and Altuzarra shows. (All photos in this post are courtesy of Essie.)

      Hey Melissa!

      Thanks for checking out my ‘fashion’ post. It’s always interesting to see how designers draw from many different sources of inspiration and then choose the colour or nail art to complement the clothes.

      More New York Fashion Week posts are coming. I’ll try to space them out, though, so you’ll still see my usual nail-polish reviews.

      Hey Lizzy!

      Same here – Hehe, especially when people talk with their hands (like I do), my eyes are drawn to their fingertips! 🙂

      When I was backstage at a fashion show before, I saw how the nail technicians painted the models’ nails. It was crazy what a short timeframe they have to get it all done and still have it look beautiful. True professionals!
