The Must-Try Manicure From NYFW Fall 2014 Has The Midas Touch

(Photo courtesy butter LONDON)It seems the USA Olympic athletes aren't the only ones going for gold: Metallic manicures are popping up everywhere at New York Fashion Week Fall 2014. From French tips to textured flakes, let's take a peek at some of the best golden digits we've spotted so far.

Keri Blair for MAC created a deconstructed French manicure at Desigual using MAC Screaming Bright nail lacquer as a matte base. She then hand-placed each piece of gold leaf "as if it's raining onto the nail," gathering them at the tips to give the illusion of a purposefully messy mani.

Zoya created a trio of custom shades for the designer: Charlotte as the base, Severine for the gold overlay, and Anaise for the black stripe at the cuticle.
