NYFW Nails Fall 2016: Morgan Taylor at Creatures of the Wind

02.18.16

Often, when a collection of clothing boasts muted tones, the nails boast the same muted feel or they go in the direction of rich, velvety tones. Not so this season at Creatures of the Wind, where Morgan Taylor Lead Manicurist Danielle Candido opts to forgo top coat and let the luster of the lacquers she uses in her design speak for themselves. “We’re going for the natural tone of metal,” she explains. “Most metal isn’t shiny but has a luster that’s weathered a bit.” To give the nail its natural, oxidized and tone-on-tone metallic finish, Candido paints chrome Morgan Taylor Could Have Foiled Me on the entire nail and then layers Morgan Taylor Give Me Gold and Morgan Taylor Bronzed and Beautiful at the cuticle to create a brassy crescent moon. “If you’re courageous and want to freehand [the half moon], that’s great! Otherwise, the simplest thing to do is to take a French [tip sticker] and [flip] it,” suggests Candido. “It’s really easy to recreate!” —Molly Church
