NEW YORK -- Pastels are popping up all over the runway for spring/summer 2015, so why should nail polish colors for next year be any different?

For the Rolando Santana runway show, Zoya created a tri-color nail art look (called "the side part") using light green, baby blue and lavender that channeled the designer's inspiration for the collection, the artist Rothko.

Models' nails were painted with polishes that matched the Pantone colors of the clothes. But anyone can do the look at home with other polishes.

Here are some DIY tips for how to remake the look:

1.) Pick the polishes. (If using Zoya polishes, go with Neely, Marley and Blu.)

2.) Polish the entire nail baby blue.

3.) Go back over the outer third of the nail with the light green shade.

4.) Connect the colors with a thin stripe of lavender.

5.) Apply the look to all nails or just one or two as accents.

6.) Enjoy runway-ready nails at home!
