A statement manicure can lift our spirit as much as it can lift an outfit. From intricate designs on claws or a solid colour, knowing what’s hot for our finger tips next season is the difference between a cool-as-hell manicure and one that is so last season.
To ensure that you are not the last to get your talons into the hottest new trends, we have hand-picked the most eye-catching nail trends from next season's runway shows that put you right up there with the fash-pack.
Helmut Lang Logo Nails
Nike, Marc Jacobs
Logo nails were seen across the runways at Kith, Helmut Lang and Marc Jacobs. Get the look with Essie nail-polish and nail stickers.
The talon trend is one that won't be disappearing for a while. If your daily routine doesn't require doing much with your hands, you might want to experiment with some serious bling and tiny (or larger) ornaments for your digits for that extra sass.
Oscar De la Renta
Gold never gets old. Perfected as a solid yet subtle shade on short square manicures and accented on bold red claws, glittering gold championed the runways at some of the most renowned designer shows including Oscar De La Renta, Laura Biagiotti and Jeremy Scott.
On Point Patterns
House of Holland
From minimal single stripes to tiny intricate details, patterned nails are going to be one of the most coveted requests at your local salon next season. Prep, paint and pattern your tips ASAP a la Christian Siriano, House of Holland and Stella McCartney, for that added edge.
If you're somewhat more classically inclined in your style and tastes, channel the shades that won't ever fade: we saw brazen reds, bold black and understated feminine nude shades across the shows at Michael Costello, Alexander Wang, Temperley London, Jeremy Scott and Marchesa.
