Morgan Taylor Nails NYFW Fall 2015

By Laura Carson Miller

They’re at it again in New York City. It’s the time of year when Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week swoops in and wakes the metropolis from its long winters nap. The fashion people, and that means ‘it girls’ and victims alike, have gathered together to view the future of fashion, as in what to anticipate/dread in the way of shapes and colors this fall.

The models hair, makeup and nail looks have a huge impact and as we all know truly influence street style trends in a measureable way. I happen to think all of the one-of-a-kind manicure styles created by lead Morgan Taylor artists Gina Edwards and Danielle Candido for these designers (Tanya Taylor ~ swoon!!) are both lovely and wearable for the non-model type. See if you agree.

*Tanya Taylor

The Look: Dark Dive
The manicures for Tanya’s show, created by Gina Edwards for Morgan Taylor, were inspired by marine life. The first look emulates the depths of the ocean with a high-gloss black while another highlights a hand painted holographic spine motif atop the high-gloss black. Using a base of Little Black Dress, the motif is hand painted using metallic Could Have Foiled Me, and layered with prismatic Fame Game glitter. Adding two top coats Make It Last and quick drying Need For Speed to complete the look with ultimate shine.

*Sally LaPointe

The Look: Lady Grey

Sally LaPointe’s collection both awed and inspired with dramatic, decadent yet simple tailoring. The manicures created by Danielle Candido for Morgan Taylor featured a decidedly strong dove grey with a custom mix using Scene Queen, a grey-beige with subtle shimmer, and a hint of Sweater Weather, a creamy grey for sophisticated elegance.

*Monique Lhuillier

The Look: Confidence in Color

The Monique Lhuillier woman is confident to the hilt and living a colorful life. Created by Gina Edwards, the manicures mimicked three moods from a demure custom blend of In The Nude and a touch of Latte Please for a chic classic, seen in the above photo, to a pearlized disco teal in Bright Eyes, to unabashed glamour with a rich Bordeaux base of Take The Lead topped with metallic plum If Looks Could Thrill.

*Chris Gelinas

The Look: Modern Day Mauve Chris Gelinas accentuated the female form in American work wear while Gina Edwards modernized a mauve manicure with Morgan Taylor Lacquer in Polished Up.

Nail polish is such an easy accessory and one I never want to be without. Polished Up, Take the Lead, Scene Queen, and Fame Game have joined my list of ‘must-have’ nail lacquers. Which nail looks hit a home run with you?


I’d love to chat nails with you!
