Understated is in. In a previous article, we told you how “bridal” skin (glowing complexion sans dramatic makeup) was seen on many top celebrities at the Oscars ceremony this year. And today, we’re going to share with you how understated nails were a hot favourite on the runway for Spring 2013.

On the models of Dolce & Gabbana (left) and Marc Jacobs (right), nude colours that look almost similar to the natural shade of healthy nails were seen. (Interesting to note that the Dolce & Gabbana model is also rocking the bridal skin makeup!) To pull off this nail look, properly trimmed cuticles is key. We have an article on how to trim your cuticles to get you started.

Another interesting nail look to try is white nails. Remember how we used to apply correction liquid on our nails when we were bored in class? (Oh, I’m not sure about you, but I sure did) This is kind of like the more refined version of that. Karen Walker (left) model and Rag and Bone (right) model both wear this nail look that exude elegance and youthfulness. We’d recommend going for short nails instead of long, for this fun look.
