More than just nails: The game changing looks shaping fashion week

With runway season now in full swing and New York and London Fashion Week already in the bag, we've hand picked our fave looks from the AW20 shows. If you're in search of inspo for your next manicure, you're in the right place!

The nail trends spotted in NY and London prove that the beauty game now goes way beyond makeup - they can either make or break a look.

Here's our pick of the best from the shows so far...prepare yourselves for some serious nail porn....!

DICKTASTIC!!

Is that even a word?! Who knows, but we are claiming it! What more can we say about these fabulous creations seen at the show of ISLA brand fave, Namilia?! Ohriginails, you did it again!


COFFIN NAILS...YES IT'S A THING!

We have been seeing these everywhere this season and we can't get enough of these foil tips created by Marian Newman for Halpern. OBSESSED!

FEELING VAMPISH??

Hell yeah we are! And who would dare mess with you when you're rocking knife edged tips like these?!

FUNGHI CHIC

Nail art genius Mei Kawajiri brought her usual mix of chic cuteness to the Rag & Bone show by creating these amazing toadstool talons.  Insert emoji here...->...!

MAAAJJOORR EMBELLISHMENTS

The Christian Cowan show at NYFW was all about being big and bold.  These golden embellished nails c/o Yukie Natori are TO DIE

NEXT LEVEL JEWLZ

The bejewelled vibe continued at Ashish in London with these amazing bead-drip tips by Ama Quashie.  We love finding new ways to accessorise our look!

LOGO LOVE

Our logo obsession is still going strong and we just love the subtle tones used by Miss Pop at the Koche x Emilio Pucci show. Does this trend ever get old?!

BITCHIN' STITCHIN'

We do love a bold nail but sometimes a simple design such as these by Holly Falcone say everything you need them to. Chic AF!

PEACHES 'N' CREAM

These warm peachy, terracotta nails seen at Rebecca Minkoff are such a vibe and have us feeling all kinds of spring-like which we are sooo ready for!!

FLORAL FETISH

Do flowers ever go out of style?! Another one of our faves from the Halpern show created by @kikasnailart as part of Marian Newman's super talented team.   

ALL ABOUT THE ANGLES

Bringing a whole new meaning to the word 'edgy', we love everything about this look from the Charlotte Knowles show at LFW.  The colour gradient + angled edge = everything!

GRAPHIX

What's not to love about this colour combo and graphic design created for the Christian Cowan show for NYFW?! Need these in our life!

NEVER TOO MUCH

Well yeah we are clearly obsessed with all things that sparkle but just take a moment to admire this detail...enough said!!


As designs become more bold and outrageous, nails are no longer just an accessory to a look - they often ARE the look.  

These are just some of our faves from the shows and who knows what Milan and Paris are gonna bring.  Either way we know we need to get our manicurist on speed dial ASAP!
