Last week was the end of New York Fashion Week, and obviously I was scoping out the nails–mostly because I love to see the trends, but partially because the recent relocation of my business means the only thing I can actually afford to buy off the designer runways is nail polish. In an effort to entertain myself, I chose two trends that were popular at the shows and recreated them at Buff.

The first one is the striped mani. I LOVE this. Super clean, elegant, and chic, it was seen on the runways at Tibi and Zimmerman and was was by far one of my fave looks.

I decided to make it more appropriate for fall with a darker color. Below is NARS Superstar ($19) with a silver, foil stripe (cut the strip, lay across the polish, and seal with a topcoat).

The other trend is the half moon manicure. This one we’ve been seeing for a while, but it just isn’t getting old (per the Oscar De La Renta and Lela Rose shows).


However, what is new is leaving the nail natural and doing the moon in a more vibrant or darker color:

Of course we had to do our own twist on it at Buff using RGB’s Beach ($18) and a basic black.

The possibilities are endless with these fun trends, so try them any way you want and put your own stamp on your hands. That’s what we’ll be doing at Buff!

Head to Buff Nail Bar for your striped or half moon mani and follow the salon on Instagram @buffnailbar for all the fab fingers (and toes).
