Complex nail looks can look beautiful, but they’re almost impossible for us to achieve on our own if we wanted to. On the runway for the Spring 2014 collection, it looks like nail artists and designers see the beauty in understated nails and here are five that aren’t just easy on the eyes, but easy to pull off:
1. Zac Posen: Subtle Ombre
Nude is sexy, at least where the nails of Zac Posen’s models are concerned. Look closer and you’ll notice a subtle ombre that gives this poise look so much more dimension.
2. Charlotte Ronson: Polka Dots On White
Who can resist this adorable look? Short of looking like a kiddo, the contrast from the black dots on white make this a charmingly sophisticated look to wear.
3. Cushnie Et Ochs: Metallic Strip
Want something sleek? This is the look to go for. On a white base, embellish with a strip in metallic shade.
4. Milly: Floating Half Moon
Half moons aren’t a new look, but this one, with its white-on-nude combination, makes it really outstanding.
5. Tracy Reese: Checkered Lines
Call it the tic-tac-toe or hashtag look. This is probably the look that everyone is talking about. Its simple yet eye-catching design is easy to pull off, and you get to choose your favourite colour as base.
