Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2013 backstage beauty: We test drive the 1-and-a-half-inch nails at Ashtiani
For Ashtiani, the nail look is extremely graphic but still has a softness. “When [Golnaz Ashtiani] told me about the show she said that it was very much inspired by ’60s France,” Rita explained. After looking at images of long, pointy nails they settled on a softer almond shape—though as soon as she applies the first one on my hand it’s clear that this is a very editorial look. The fake nail extends an inch past the tip of my finger. It’s impossible to resist wiggling and I strain to get a better look.
Rita is quick to notice my excitement: “You can’t ignore these nails! That’s the great thing about nails for fashion week, they can be fantasy or they can be everyday,”
