The Top 6 Spring 2016 Nail Trends to Try Right Now
THE NEW FRENCH MANI
The French manicure is clawing its way back to chic—with a few crucial tweaks. The most important one: The line across the top of your nail should not attempt to look natural in any way. In fact, the color should be as unexpected as possible. At Monique Lhuillier’s spring 2016 show, manicurist Gina Edwards paired Kelly-green tips with a sheer pink base. She painted the design freehand, but French-manicure stencil stickers (available at any drugstore) are great for creating a crisp line.
Put googly eyes on anything and suddenly, it earns our unparalleled adoration. But the manicure at Adam Selman’s spring 2016 show was more than adorable; it was cool.Manicurist Madeline Poole used four-millimeter nailheads dipped in navy polish to stamp perfect circles on bare nails. “Stick the point into an eraser so you’re not holding something sharp,” she says.
A far cry from basic reds and pinks, this muted version of the classic spring pastel—shown here at Narciso Rodriguez’s fall 2016 show—is unexpected and cool. Almost every major nail brand launched a few of these dusty shades this season as a segue to summer brights.
Even if this look, as seen on Nanette Lepore’s spring 2014 runway, reminds you of that time you got creative with Wite-Out in elementary school, you have to admit: It’s weirdly refreshing—and kind of like a palette cleanser for your nails.
“Though it’s minimalist, one line makes a huge impact,” says manicurist Miss Pop of the vertical stripe (painted with a striping brush) she executed at Marissa Webb’s spring 2016 show. And by huge impact, she means elongating the nail. Basically, you’re wearing Gianvito Rossi stilettos on your fingertips.
This shade is a subtle step brighter than the brooding jewel tones that ruled your winter nail wardrobe. We also noticed (and liked) that it’s ultravibrant during the day but rather sumptuous at night. It’s like nail magic. Shown here: the look at Jenny Packham’s spring 2016 show.
