#NYFW: Has Marc Jacobs “Killed Nail Art?”


Nail art lovers across the web are in a uproar right now- and their anger is directed at designer Marc Jacobs.  Jacobs debuted his new nail polish line at New Year Fashion Week, claiming the clear shade, “Shiny” as his favorite “color.” Buzzfeed writer, Amy Odell claims:

“This can only mean one thing: Marc Jacobs just killed nail art. Because if only one show in New York matters, if only one show has the power to dictate how every other American designer will design their next collections, if only one man has the sheer balls to so forcefully return nails to their natural state — rejecting caviar appliqués, claws, astroturf, printed stickers — it’s Marc Jacobs.”

What do you think- does Jacob’s return to the natural nail look, the beginning of the end of nail art?
