NYFW Nails Fall 2016: MAC at Ohne Titel


By semick

Beauty takes a walk on the dark side at Ohne Titel, projecting a grungy, gothic vibe. Darkest-night lips and stringy bangs allude to a girl who both cares and doesn’t care about her look, but when it comes to the nails, she’s definitely carefully considering her polish. MAC Lead Nail Artist Keri Blair crafts six different nail styles for the show, ranging from deep, solid shades that match swatches in the collection (think: burgundy-wine MAC Lacquer in 5-Pin, purple MAC Lacquer in Black Stallion and hunter green MAC Lacquer in Bespoke) to whimsical polka dots. “There are some polka dot patterns from head to toe, so we’re keeping some nails in a monochromatic textile expression. So the nails are literally the accessory to the rest of the outfit,” she says. For these spotted designs, Blair paints tips with either MAC Nocturnelle or MAC Midnight Ocean and then uses a dotting tool and white polish to create the dots. Blair shares this tip for getting the dotty look: “Do the big dots first and get your space mapped out. Then you can go in and fill in the smaller dots.” —Molly Church
