Runway Nail Looks That Were Like Whoa

You guys aren't going to like this (we sure didn't), but it looks like the overwhelming trend of spring '14 is going to be plain 'ol nude nails. Womp, womp. We saw them everywhere at NYFW, and, while pretty, they did nothing to stoke the fires of our nail inspiration.
It wasn't all neutral news, though — a few brave designers sallied forth and kept the nail-art flame alive, albeit in a slightly more refined, understated way, and we did manage to find a few fantastic colors worth noting in the mix.
Here, our photographers scoured the backstage scene to bring you the coolest, most interesting, downright prettiest nail looks from the spring '14 season. Click through to see the antidote for nude-nail fatigue.
