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.
