The nail looks are one of the major draws to any Fashion Week for the beauty obsessed, and Paris Couture Week is no different. To complement the artistically beautiful clothing being paraded down the runway, models had their digits painted up in a wide variety of polish shades. And since the gowns themselves are so unique, the nail looks can vary vastly from show to show. Intrigued? Just keep clicking.
