Nail art trend is back thanks to fashion week

Fashion week has just wrapped up and the biggest trend coming from for the Fall/Winter collections aren’t just the clothes. Manicures were front and centre. 

Paris fashion week has just come to end, and apart from all of the street style looks sitting in my screenshots, there was another fashion staple that caught my eye. The manicures. Much like the ones players were serving up at the Australian Open, it seems nail art is continuing its momentum.

Here’s seven of our favourite looks to bookmark for your next appointment, or to keep on file for when you’re feeling a DIY is on the agenda.

Modern French mani

At Prabal Gurung lead manicurist Miss Pop mixed up French tips with a style you can easily create using a stencil at home. Keep it Autumnal with a deep plum shade or update the classic using stark white.

In the garden

Rag & Bone’s runway saw models parading around in Mei Kawajiri’s creations. There were an array of different art styles from these mushrooms to leaves – for you to literally take a leaf from for inspiration.

If you’re on the low-maintenance side of the mani spectrum look no further than this simplistic white stripe finish from Jin Soon at Proenza Schouler.

Rock ‘n’ Roll

At Christian Siriano lead nail artist Julie Kandalec was inspired by Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and created this sparkly, gothic number.

Multi-coloured magic

Missoni saw Miss Pop create the perfect nail look in collaboration with OPI’s new Mexico City collection. The best part about this ~look~ is that you can DIY at home with whatever nail polish you already own.

Dotty dreams

Nail artist Rita Remark designed a mix of big and small monochrome polka dots for Rixo. Paint your nails white or black then once they’re dry apply the opposite shade with the bottom of a toothpick.


Remark took her skills backstage at Veronica Beard with these two-tone spiced neutral tips. Apply your first layer (the lighter shade) then once dry use sticky tape to create a stencil and paint the top section.
