Nail Trends From MBFWA

With 21 shows under the belt at this years Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, we look back at highlights from none other than leading nail brand OPI.

It was clear this year that designers were not only looking to make a statement with their designs but nails were a also huge feature this year. Bold polishes and various methods of nail art were used to compliment designers collections with clear evidence that colour, from pastels to bright neons, will continue to be a huge trend this Summer.

White polishes  will also be a trend for the summer, complementing collections  from Zimmermann and Bec & Bridge, it offers a fresh approach to any outfit.

The new nail trend featured was the reverse French Manicure, nude or white nails with coloured tips, as seen at Carla Zampatti and Lisa Ho. For me these are the easiest nail art to recreate and you can use the white strips  in the French manicure set at home if you don’t have a steady hand. Also the reverse moon nail  featured at both Maticevski and Johanna Johnson, can be done using the same strips to get a clean edge.

Tell us what you can’t wait to try in the world of nail art and colour.

    Don’t like the reverse moon with the black tips, makes me think they look dirty or are severe smoker’s nails
