BACK TO BASICS
Pull out last season’s polishes. While the bounty of new makeup looks on the spring/summer runways did a oneeighty, nails were a twist on past trends. Your best bets for your Pinterest board: a futuristic take on negativespace nails, like the inverted Vs at Cushnie et Ochs and the playful dots at Adam Selman. Or try the new French mani with inverted moons seen at Rodarte or an ombré effect like at Rebecca Minkoff. What’s out? The accent nail. Mix it all up instead. And you’ll also want to save the stiletto nail for your Adele impersonation. Oval, “squoval” and round are the text-friendly shapes of the season.
The polishes to try this season are textured and modern. Clockwise, from top right (in bottles): essie matte about you top coat ($11.99); essie nail polish in master plan ($9.99); NARS Nail Polish in Endless Night ($25). For details, see Shopping Guide.
