NYFW Nails: Boldly Beautiful "Moonbows" by Dermelect Cosmeceuticals at Cynthia Rowley

Dermelect Cosmeceuticals, the brand that introduced "ME," the first peptide-infused anti-aging nail lacquer treatment, was the brand behind the moody, darkly colorful nail look at the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2014 Presentation at New York Fashion Week. Celebrity nail tech Elle helped craft the colorful, cool look as the perfect complement to the Fall 2014 line.

Rowley's Fall 2014 collection was inspired by "moonbows," bold but dark colors of the rainbow, a reflection on the romanticism of the sporty chic line and retro, 1970's influence. Elle, Dermelect’s Color Curator, took Cynthia’s vision and created her version of the moonbow. Says Elle, “Representing a rainbow of darker shades not using any primary colors, we layered two shades from the same color family on each nail to achieve the perfect moonbow."

Get the Look:
Elle used twelve lacquers to create the look, five from Dermelect’s current collection and seven that may reach the brand’s Fall 2014 lacquer collection. Applying the polish side by side on each nail, Elle began with red (using Ferosh, a firey oxblood color, and Red-iculous, a classic red Chinese crème), followed by orange (a bright red/orange and a rusted orange), yellow (sunshine yellow and mustard), green (kelly and pine), blue (She-She, a luxe take on teal, and Phenom, an Egyptian blue), and indigo (jeweled purple and Swagger, an autumnal royal plum).
