New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and designers are nailing it on the runway with cool and creative manicures. “Nail art is wild! I love it because now everyone knows how exciting it is to be a manicurist,” Essie’s lead manicurist Michelle Saunders told us backstage at 3.1 Phillip Lim.”When you get a trend like nail art, it becomes a staple and a look. It may fade a little bit, but nails are a new—and permanent—accessory.” The 3D accents seen at Kate Spade and Libertine allowed the designers to bring a jewelry-like element to each model’s fingertips, and many other labels lacquered up in fun patterns.

Aldo added some new talent to its Aldo Rise collaboration platform—Mark Fast, Preen, JW Anderson and Libertine! Each designer created a capsule collection of high-fashion footwear under $200, and the styles are available online starting today. From whip-stiched stilettos to sculptural block heels and cut-out pumps, see all the chic spring shoes in the gallery. And head to aldoshoes.com to snag a pair for yourself!
