Nail Trends for Autumn/ Winter 2015
We’ve introduced you to the key hair trends for autumn/ winter 2015 so now it’s time to find the perfect finish for your beauty look with our guide to this season’s nail trends. The dominant shape for AW15 is short and rounded, so a practical start! Once your talons are filed into shape, read on to discover your style match…
Metallic is back again. This is such a versatile, wearable trend; perfect for parties but also not too overbearing for the office. That’s probably why it keeps making an appearance season after season! We’re certainly not complaining. If you do want to up the glamour, add a coat of glitter (as seen at Just Cavalli) keeping with the metallic theme with shades of gold, silver or bronze. We love OPI Rollin’ In Cashmere and OPI I’ll Tinsel You In for a glitzy top coat.
Pay attention to this nail trend as it looks set to stick around into spring/ summer 2016. Deep shades of ocean blue, teal and metallic finishes dominated both AW15 and SS16 catwalks, so if you’re looking for a nail colour you can keep on using, make it blue. Take inspiration from Karen Walker and Monique Lhullier and keep the finish glossy. Try OPI Blue In My Mind with the classic OPI Top Coat.
Gothic black talons have received a chic makeover this season with an edgy matte finish. Pair OPI My Gondola Or Yours with the Matte Nail Envy Lacquer; the matte finish helps to soften the shade and make it more interesting. Add a statement diamanté embellishment as seen at Bibhu Monaparte if you want something to break up the black.
Oscar de la Renta’s autumn/ winter show featured these stunning purple manicures, complete with high shine finish. A beautiful shade that will complement most outfits. We recommend: OPI Purple With Purpose.
Jeremy Scott’s models wowed with bright, bold tips. Recreate the look and add a colourful tip to your manicure – we love Rosie Fortescue’s take on the trend. The tips don’t have to be blue, they can be any colour you like! We can’t wait to try it out with OPI Strawberry Margarita for a real burst of colour.
But that’s not all – there are even more nail trends to sport this season, including light coffee shades (OPI Cosmo Not Tonight Honey), grey (OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI) and vibrant red (OPI Colour So Hot It Berns). Shop these & more fabulous AW15 shades over at ShopRegis.
