Nail trends are now divided into two categories: texture and colour. Whether you’re wearing colour or have bare nails, experiment with finish, be it matte, high shine or opalescent. The best colours to have a major bonding moment with? Oxblood, blackened reds and deep jewel tones. Sophisticated and edgy are not mutually exclusive. See: Paul Smith, Alexis Mabille, Max Mara, Julien Macdonald, Nanette Lepore and Cushnie et Ochs.
