So it's day four of New York Fashion Week, and hopefully you've been following my tweets straight from the trenches of the always crowded backstage! If you haven't, start following me now at www.twitter.com/beautylaunchpad!
I always have fun at fashion week, but it is a lot of sweating, walking, getting shoved, hating heels! Yet, all of my aches and pains go away as soon as I see CND's Jan Arnold backstage. This guru of fashionable nails always has the best get-ups on: Prada knee-high socks one year, a heavily chained Junya Watanabe puffer the next. She's always excited to tell the story of the nails her company creates for countless runway shows, and these stories are so imaginative and well thought out, I often think she should become a magazine writer herself!
Jan, along with CND's talented Roxanne Valinoti, walked me through the nail look for Rag & Bone, and the video above made it onto Jan's fashion week blog! Visit it for insight into the gorgeous nails this team slaves over for NYFW, and check out the pictures.
As for me...I promise in the coming week to also give you insider blogs from some of the best backstage beauty looks. I've chatted with the greats of catwalk hair: Odile Gilbert, Orlando Pita, Guido Palau...the list goes on! And the beauty goes on!
