NYFW Runway Mani Report - Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer at Betsey Johnson SS15

Leave it to Betsey Johnson to defy the nude nail polish trend for spring and go for multidimensional shimmer and a bold statement nail for her spring 2015 show during New York Fashion Week.


For Betsey Johnson's S/S 2015 runway show, Danielle Candido, lead manicurist for Morgan Taylor, created a multidimensional blue and silver-hued, crystal- embellished bridal manicure that only Betsey Johnson could envision. The nail look, as seen above on Camille Grammer, is a layer of Oh Snap It's Silver!, an iridescent silver hue, topped with a coat of sheer cream In The Nude to magnify the silver sparkle underneath. Another layer of Oh Snap It's Silver! was then applied before a layer of  Bronzed & Beautiful, a gold metallic shimmer, was lightly sponged on. On top of the four layers of color, Candido then applied loose foil and pearlescent embellishments to complete the fresh take on bridal nails. As an added surprise, vibrant baby blue Varsity Jacket Blues was applied to the underside of the nail tips, adding a faint tint seen from the top and a pop from the belly of the nail. Toes shimmered in Adorned In Diamonds to match the multidimensional nails.

NYFW Runway Mani Report - Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer at Angel Sanchez & Zero + Maria Cornejo

Creamy sheers from Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer took center stage at the Angel Sanchez and Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2015 collection shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The pale hued nails were brought to life by Morgan Taylor’s lead manicurist, Gina Edwards, highlighting the continuous trend of nude nail colors for the upcoming spring season.

Angel Sanchez, Nails by Gina Edwards


Gina Edwards created a captivating geometric blue nail for Angel Sanchez’s S/S 2015 runway. A custom blended pale aquamarine composed of Morgan Taylor in Varsity Jacket Blues and Make It Last clear top coat was applied as the base and was topped with a cuticle-hugging, asymmetrical swoosh in Morgan Taylor Who-Dini, a gray blue crème, that transitioned to the outside edge of the nail. The look was given a high-shine finish with Morgan Taylor in Need For Speed. The transitional manicure complemented Sanchez’s perfectly juxtaposed collection of soft, feminine fabrics cut in hard lines and geometric shapes.

Zero + Maria Cornejo, Nails by Gina Edwards


It was all about classic nude at Zero + Maria Cornejo’s spring 2015 runway collection. Lead manicurist Gina Edwards kept it clean with two coats of Morgan Taylor in New School Nude, a universal nude hue with pink undertones. The shade was applied to both fingers and toes and coordinated perfectly with the solid palette of Cornejo’s European romance-inspired collection. The look was finished with Morgan Taylor Need For Speed, a fast-drying topcoat.

Morgan Taylor S/S 2015 Runway Mani Report - Chris Gelinas, Sally LaPointe, Carmen Marc Valvo, & Monique Lhuillier

Let's hear it for spring 2015 nail trends. Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer continues to rule the runways one nail at a time. This season they're up to almost a dozen shows and Celebrity Manicurist, Gina Edwards and Danielle Candido is wowing everyone with their amazing work this season. Today we highlight their work for the Chris Gelinas, Sally LaPointe, Carmen Marc Valvo, and Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 Collections Show.

CG Chris Gelinas, Nails by Gina Edwards


Manicures motivated by this rising star's graphic individuality created interest with contrasting texture and understated colors. Matte pastel pink using I'm Charmed and Mattes A Wrap top coat at the top third of the nail finished with a crisp horizontal line before contrasting to classic glossy beige in New School Nude. The abstract makeup similarly juxtaposed white brows with pink lashes to illustrate a break from conformity.

Sally LaPointe, Nails by Danielle Candido


The nails at Sally LaPointe were an understated, youthful, foggy pigment to complement the designer's 'less-is-more' inspiration.The matte, dusty lavender nail was created by custom mixing Morgan Taylor iridescent purple Something To Blog About with gray shimmer Scene Queen finished with Mattes A Wrap top coat.

Carmen Marc Valvo, Nails by Gina Edwards


Celebrating the designer's silver anniversary, Gina Edwards created a sophisticated dual-finish black and silver manicure using Little Black Dress muted by Mattes A Wrap top coat then she edged the cuticle line with Oh Snap, It's Silver, an iridescent silver. A slice of silvery grey also swept through a piece of the hair to a sexy side bun giving an overall look of modern sophistication.

Monique Lhuillier, Nails by Gina Edwards


The manicure at Monique Lhuillier was a triumph — elegant and feminine. A custom mix of Morgan Taylor's coral creme Color Me Bold and light mauve cream Coming up Roses was applied at the very base of the nail. The color burst morphed from saturated to high gloss clear at the tip. Gina Edwards was inspired by the gorgeous thick, clear Lucite heels featured in the show and Lhuillier's own inspiration of the pastels illuminating the sky just before sunrise.
