Models walked the runway in silky eggplant and fierce leopard print Saturday night at the debut NYFW Ann Nahari show. But the accessory that pulled together the Moroccan and Dubai-inspired looks? Gold, metallic nails!
For this plus-sized fashion show, models were asked to arrive with their nails already done in different shades of metallic, shimmery and foil gold – designer Sumiyyah Rasheed said she wanted the nails to represent the wealth of the countries she used as inspiration for the bold, flowy dresses and tops and sophisticated eggplant, white and bright blue hues in her collection.
Even though the models arrived with their digits done, makeup artist Ummilkhair Paul and hairstylists Kimberly Young and Adeline Charles transformed the women with beautiful, wavy hair (using Tigi Bed Head products) and rich red lips and golden smoky eyes!
Ummilkhair used a variety of makeup, from Ruby Kisses eye shadow primer and MAC Absolute Power red lipstick to the Urban Decay Naked Palette (the original!) and NYX lip liners.
But those nails! The molten color really drew everything together!
You can recreate the look with any gold metallic nail polish. Here are a few suggestions!
