Nail Trends at New York Fashion Week


What models wear on their nails during Fashion Week has become just as important as their hair styling and makeup.  Here's a behind-the-scenes report from BeautyPress on some of the hot nail trends from OPI at New York Fashion Week's Fall/Winter 2013 shows.



OPI Black Onyx


OPI joined BCBGMAXAZRIA in kicking off Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on February 7th at Lincoln Center. Models walked the runway wearing OPI nail lacquer in Black Onyx topped with a coat of OPI Matte Nail Envy for a slightly matte finish with a little gloss. The dark nails provided a great complement to the black, white and blue hues, bold prints, and firs that were showcased in the Fall/Winter 2013 collection.



OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons


OPI and designer Gabriela Perezutti collaborated for the Candela presentation. Models wore OPI nail lacquer in Don't Pretzel My Buttons. This warm nude shade nicely complemented the collection's rustic, romantic feel. 

At the Katharine Polk for Houghton show, models wore tips painted with OPI nail lacquer in Samoan Sand and topped with an extravagant lace featured in several of Polk's designs. The nails were then given a slightly pointed oval shape for a one-of-a-kind look. Attached, please find a close up picture of one of the dresses featuring the lace, as well as an image of the final nail look. Photos can be credited to OPI.

At Jenni Kayne’s Fall/Winter 2013 presentation, models wore OPI nail lacquer in MonSooner or Later. This bright coral red hue added a bold pop of color to the collection's mix of dark camel, black, nude, emerald and gold. The nails complemented a similarly bright shade on lips. Please view the attached images for a look at the presentation, including a close-up shot of the nails against Jenni Kayne's deconstructed paisley done with bold absinthe yellow. 

All polishes retail at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
