I love trawling through all the Fashion Week pics, not just to inspire a little completely-out-of-the-question shopping lust, but also to see what is going on in the world of nail polish for the fashionistas out there!

I’ve spotted a few cute manicures from NYFW so far…

1. Tuxedo Manicure by CND at Ruffian Fall 2011

Oooh this is cute! How posh… the nails for Ruffian were done by CND and the colours used were:

For the base:  1 coat of Iced Blue Shimmer nail polish and 2 coats of Lavender Pearl nail polish

For the hand painted black bow tie at the tip and the black moon: Blackjack nail polish finished with Super Shiney

You can see more pics and find out more on the CND Fashion Week Blog, which is where the pic above, taken by Jennifer Graylock is from.

2. Nail polish bands by Noni Creme with Butter London at Vena Cava Fall 2011

Hmmm now this is a little weird I think… Instead of a manicure on the nail, Noni Creme painted little rings of Butter London nail polish around the fingers of the models…

The colours of Butter London polish used to complement the Vena Cava collection were:

Tramp Stamp , Union Jack Black, Royal Navy, Scoundrel and Flouro Orange

You can see more of the  nail polish colours at the site Butter London

Now while I’m not such a fan of the Butter London nail polish finger strips (phew try saying that 3 times fast!) I did love the manicure that was done by Noni Creme for the Vena Cava Spring 2011 show…

Again these nails were done by Noni Creme using Butter London nail polish. The colours used were:

Yummy Mummy nail polish for the base and Jack Black for the half-moon.

Both pics are from Stylelist.com where they have fabulous coverage of all the fashion shows, including great backstage beauty pics!

3. Posh french manicures by CND at Jason Wu

The Jason Wu models all sported gorgeous ‘posh’ french manicures, with a deep red base and gold foil tip on a really almond shaped nail…

4. Alexa Chung’s Tropical nails at Carven 2011

Alexa Chung is a fan of a bit of nail art (here’s her love-heart manicure from a wee while back) and she had these cute little palm tree nails at the Carven show. They look a little bit amateurish, but still super-cute!
