When it comes to the designer runway shows at fashion week, styling involves more than just clothes and accessories—everything from the perfect eye shadow shades to artfully designed manis are equally important. While we love taking inspiration from our favorite collections, updating our entire wardrobe is easier said than done. Here, see what nail art designs are trending on the fashion week circuit and pick your favorites to give your look an update without costing a fortune.
This season's shows were all about striped details. Play with ones in metallic hues or go for classic black and white. If you're feeling up to the challenge, you can even vary stripes in vertical and horizontal placements to create a simple plaid.
Looking to make a statement? Nothing is more eye-catching than a sparkly mani. Get fancy with a glitter topcoat or embellish your cuticles with a cluster of sparkles.
If you thought the classic French manicure was a thing of the past, think again. It's back and better than ever in bright colors and modern shapes.
If nail art is not your thing, take a more natural-looking approach with one of the most recurring trends: naked nails. Get a mani in a light pink, nude or just swipe on a clear polish for a touch of shine.
If you're caught in between the nail art and naked trend, take the middle route and opt for a clean mani in a pop of bright color.
Artsy brush strokes graced the nails of models on multiple runways at fashion week. Use a white polish and play with placement on nails. Try a diagonal swipe on nude nails or fake a French mani for a modern take on the classic trend.
