Nail artist Naomi Yasuda added blue squiggles of acrylic paint over Estee Lauder’s Nail Lacquer ($20) in Blue Blood at Opening Ceremony’s first runway show. You don’t have to hit an art supply store to get the look; just pick up Essie’s Nail Polish ($8) in Avenue Maintain and Sephora’s Nail Art Set ($10).

Break out the nail strengthener! The nails for Honor’s show were dubbed “almond-etto,” for their long, slightly-pointy shape. They were painted with Deborah Lippmann’s Nail Polish ($18) in the forthcoming La Vie En Rose, then adorned with Swarovski Elements crystals.
