These Are the Most Intricate and Creative Manicures From Fashion Week So Far
When it comes to the nails at Autumn/Winter 2020 Fashion Week, it's all in the details.
For beauty editors, fashion month — whether in New York, London, Paris, or Milan — is unsurprisingly, all about the hair, makeup, and nails. We're the first to spot the emerging trends, whether that's the hairstyle that'll soon be taking over our Instagram feeds, the best way to wear vibrant eye shadow, or the nail art design you'll be asking your manicurist for.
This season, the nail art was incredibly intricate. Manicurists spent hours painstakingly hand-painting complex designs ahead of the show, or gluing teensy gems onto the models' fingers, sometimes mere minutes before they step out onto the runway.
At Prabal Gurung's show during NYFW, nail artist Miss Pop created an angled half-moon design in a Zoya maroon-red hue, which gave a twist on the french manicure (it's making a huge comeback), giving it a minimalist-yet-modern feel.
For London Fashion Week, the "lipstick" nail shape (which is hugely popular in South Korea) debuted at Charlotte Knowles, led by manicurist Lauren Michelle Pires. And there was no shortage of nail accessories this season. For Simone Rocha, Ama Quashie's team made "crystal waves" using white and black Swarovski crystals that ran along the side and tip of the nail. Oh, and it just so happens to be the perfect wedding manicure, so file that in the wedding Pinterest board you pretend not to have.
Ahead, get a closer look at all of our favourite polish shades and nail art designs from Autumn/Winter 2020 fashion month, so far.
