NYFW Spring 2017 Nails: Morgan Taylor at Creatures of the Wind

09.14.16

Society has boxed in female musicians for decades; whether rock or pop, aesthetically speaking, women were expected to look a certain way—mostly through the lens of male music executives. And yet, certain musicians, like PJ Harvey and Julee Cruise, turned this idea on its head, eschewing traditional ideals of beauty and gaining power through their rebellion. These muses ran their way through the beauty seen at Creatures of the Wind’s Spring 2017 show in many different ways—some literal, some not. (Cruise, by the way, performed during the show.)

For nails, the directive handed down to Morgan Taylor Lead Nail Artist Danielle Candido doesn’t explicitly reference indie rockers, but rather innocent beauty. “I think of white when I think of innocence,” Candido says. “Its classic and elegant—white polish makes a statement without being an announcement.” To that end, two flawless coats of Morgan Taylor All White Now adorn the models’ tips. And though an indie girl may not go for such perfection—after all, chipped polish was a ’90s right of passage for the indie set—pure white remains a rebellious choice for nails even today—something PJ Harvey can appreciate, we’re sure. —Karie L.
