Backstage With Deborah Lippmann at Honor SS13
By Megan Z.

Now that Spring 2013 Fashion Week has kicked off without a hitch, it's the perfect time to start scouting next season's beauty trends, and since I got to catch up with Deborah Lippmann backstage at Honor's SS13 show I officially got geared up to to talk about all things nails.
For Honor's presentation Deborah wanted to incorporate a clean yet edgy nail to go with the bold, (human) anatomy inspired collection. Bringing the perfectly groomed white nails to be the 'bone' of the look, she wanted to finish them off with a high gloss shine using the Addicted To Speed Top Coat. To achieve the creme like shade, Deborah paired the opaque white creme, Amazing Grace with a sheer bright white polish, Like A Virgin giving some depth to Honor's colorful and uniquely printed dresses and separates. And of course, to keep things consistent she repeated the high gloss, clean white look on the model's toes.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say white is going to be back for Spring 2013, but don't fret, Deborah said nail art is still in, so get creative ladies and show your personality. After all, according to Deborah, nails effect mood and personality. Who knew?!

That model has some freakin' scary alien fingers!

Those nailbeds looks seriously infected. If that was my patient, I would recommend antibiotics immediately.

I agree. It looks like the model picks or bites (or both) her cuticles ... Unfortunately, I used to do the same!

OMG! Those are the worst hands I have ever seen....I thought the post was about a hand/cuticle infection! Too funny....

Those poor models. Their nails/feet are shot by the end of Fashion Week.

I've seen some plenty of nasty looking runway feet from close-up shots.

Those fingers are frightening! Why on earth would they want this photo passed around to the media? Eeek!

Holy H, in the top pic the nails/base of nails are infected horribly!

hey all, sorry for the frightening cuticles, I've swapped out the image with a better shot so you can focus on the polish and not the fingers. hope this helps! xo
