Nail Trends:Matte and Green
Looks like Next season’s big trend is a flat look that debuted backstage at Alexander Wang, courtesy of Butter London’s Nonie Crème, who created the finish by putting her Nail Foundation base coat on top of her flesh-toned go-to Yummy Mummy. Look out for matte color collections from Zoya and Orly this fall, as well as Opi’s line launching in July.

Chanel’s creative director of makeup, Peter Philips, created a jade lacquer from the brand’s Fall 2009 show.
“Karl Lagerfeld wanted a green tint which would resonate with the jade-colored notes of the collection,” Philips says. A palette of ten different shades of green was shown to the designer, who picked the one that most resembled a tweed suit from the collection.
