It’s not often that you would read a disappointed GDN post but I’m afraid, with the exception of Oscar host Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter, the red carpet was littered with bare, nude nails. No fun at all. As the A/W11 catwalks have revealed and according to Marianne Newman, the nails for next season are falling into two definitive camps: The ‘bare is the new nude’ and ‘the mad and crazy’. Okay, so we saw plenty of barely there manicures last night but not much else.
However, Anne Hathaway’s matchy matchy approach to everything which included matching her dress, lips and nails to the red carpet has given us a new found love for the classic shade. We’ll be making it modern though with a matte top coat a la Vivienne Westwood. If only someone had dared to wear a Palm Tree or two!
