Paint it black

ELLE (Canada) - - Trend Report -

In keep­ing with fall’s gothic-makeup re­vival, nails were mood­ier than a Par­tyNex­tDoor playlist. At Ro­darte, man­i­curists lay­ered black pol­ish over red nails for in­stant tex­ture. Rich jewel tones were flaunted at Roland Mouret, Vivienne West­wood and Naeem Khan. Note: Keep nails short and squo­val; stiletto nails + dark pol­ish = a Wicked Witch of the West vibe. Not sold on solids? Like Stan Smiths and skinny jeans, nail art has be­come a peren­nial crowd-pleaser. There was plenty of ’90s in­spo in the graphic shapes and neu­trals at 3.1 Phillip Lim and DKNY. But this sea­son also saw the re­turn of ab­stract nail art, like the laven­der and blue tiger prints at Kenzo, cow­boy-in­spired shapes at Manish Arora and flo­ral nail ap­pliqué at An­to­nio Mar­ras. n
