This Season's 9 Most Wearable Trends
If you invest in just one nail color this season, let it be deep, dark, and a little vampiric, like the tips we saw at Burberry Prorsum and Louis Vuitton.

For a pristine finish, apply two thin coats, then clean up edges with a pointy cotton swab dipped in polish remover.
