New nails: what’s trending this season

From muted metallics, to single stripes, we’ve hunted out the must-have nail trends straight from the runways.

Nial polish

Cleverly applied ombre polishes have been a big hit on the catwalks this season, seen at Tom Ford in a combination of black and glitter. It was more metallics at Michael Costello, with rose gold ombre created using three Essie polishes.
Stripes have been a big hit everywhere, but different every time. At Tibi a nude manicure was upgraded with black diagonal stripes across both index fingers, at 3.1 Phillip Lim it was one single horizontal line on the ring finger, at Kate Spade it was single vertical line on the index and, at Area NYC, Swarovski crystals made vertical lines running down each nail.
The French manicure too has had a 2018 upgrade, with a stripe of green at Alice + Olivia and a check French look for Opening Ceremony.

Somewhere between the fluorescent headbands, shoulder-pads and roll-neck skivvies of the 80s, metallics got a bad rap. But now they’re emerging with a glamourous new look and, although head to toe may take the luster off this hot new trend, we’re here to help you find the shiny middle ground.
Accessories are the safe bet when you want to shine bright but not overwhelm. Dip your toes in the metallic waters in the more literal sense by starting with footwear, after all, a silver shoe is a pretty safe bet when it comes to putting your best foot forward.
A sweet silver clutch can take you from day to night and, and although they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, silver has been winning some pretty illustrious affections in the jewellery department.
The future is certainly looking bright – and shiny.

Which is rather an exciting prospect, when it comes to our inner-magpies. Long gone are the days when the fixtures in our houses – taps, handles, pipes, shower heads – lacked personality. And the creatively clever are using metallics in unique new ways – with accessories, cabinetry, furniture and even flooring getting the metallic makeover.
Not only are we seeing a renaissance of copper, but also bold golds, striking silvers and charming brass hues are creating clean, modern and vibrant environments within our homes – even in the less ‘sexy’ spaces like our bathrooms. With accessories like the Round Champagne Kitchen Mixer pictured, Meir demonstrates how metallic finishes can add glamour and sophistication to a room through some of the smallest items.
The ultimate aesthetic pick-me-up for your abode, the magic of metallics will no doubt continue to endure.

Bold & the beautiful: Token’s take on this season’s accessory trends

Autumn brings both sunshine and showers and, to celebrate the season, stunning on-trend jewellery, scarves, gloves and sunnies are all at Token in Avonhead Shopping Centre.

Jewellery is going bold, says owner Eliza Rattray. Stella & Gemma earrings stun with feathers or heavy-chorded tassels in soft blush, blues, pinks and greys. It’s a refined twist on boho.
An exciting new jewellery range in Token is Wanderlust & Co, with its quixotic touch of the interstellar. Fine metals, in intricate detail and bold shapes, also include a charming astrology range.
Eliza has bought in lots of scarves – in autumnal hues of turmeric, olive, burgundy and navy. Snoods, faux-fur collars, chunky cable-knits, and fine patterned florals for warmer days, finish any outfit.
Stella & Gemma’s great-priced gloves are adorned with fur, pom poms and tassels, while its sunglasses range sees slightly smaller frames this season – with a retro edge. And the new Quay Sunglasses are oh so the latest thing.
