Last week, étoile polish teamed up with fashion label Novis to create a one-of-a-kind nail look for the brand's debut show at New York Fashion Week.

Combining "uptown elegance with downtown quirkiness," this NYC-based brand channeled classic Richard Avedon photographs from the 50's and 60's for their Fall/Winter 2013 collection – full of graphic prints in black and white, with bursts of poppy red and deep vibrant blues.

Mod manis!

To complement Novis's designs, manicurist Casey Herman created a minimalist, high-contrast nail look, using étoile polish – which is easy to recreate at home. She used three coats of étoile's snow white Asscher to give the nails a more opaque look. She then took small black crystals and applied them to the middle and ring fingers near the cuticle. The black crystals echoed the amethyst crystals that dotted some of the models' eyes.
