There’s a buzz forming for nails inspired by American culture and New York City’s style, from the catwalk to the sidewalk, is the inspiration behind some of the hottest nail lacquers coming in 2013. Here are two ways to get involved in the multi-coloured manicures making headlines in the beauty world now.

Deborah Lippmann Girls Nails Collection

Nicole by OPI Modern Family Nail Collection

Sitcom style

In January two nail lines will launch that are inspired by hit TV shows, New York City based show Girls and Modern Family.

Deborah Lippmann has created a four shade nail polish set that reflects each character from hit HBO comedy drama Girls. Each eclectic cast member takes on a different nail colour, so Hannah, is a “Hapless Hunter Green”, Marnie is “Prim and Proper Pink”, Shoshanna is “Virtuous Vivid Violet” and Jessa is “Bohemian Burgundy”.

Similarly Nicole by OPI is launching 14 new nail shades inspired by ABC’s award-winning Modern Family TV show. The colours are just as bright and flamboyant as the cast, with quirky names such as “I Do De-Claire!”, “She’s Lily Somethin”, “Stand by Your Manny”, “Basking in Gloria”, and “My Jay or the Highway”.

Maybelline New York Colour Nail Lacquers

New York Couture Colour

Nails have turned into a haute couture accessory and in 2013 the trend for bright, bold and elaborate manis is set to be maximised thanks to the New York inspired nail collections being brought out by NARS, M.A.C and Maybelline.

Bringing show-stopping fashion forward colours in a revolutionary new formula is how makeup giants Maybelline have approached the trend. Their New York Colour Nail Lacquers take nails as a fashion statement a step further. Vibrant catwalk inspired shades in true, crisp, colours with a high shine finish is what you can expect from the 39 new colours included in the lacquers of the collection. Inspired by the Big Apple and its fashion credentials, the hottest shades of the range are the on-trend “Urban Turquoise”, “Superpower Blue” and “Downtown Red”. The polishes also have an easy-flow narrow brush which is the epitome of professionalism and allows you to make like a nail art technician trying out looks such as animal print, colour blocking and ombre fades on yourself. © Cover Media
