Dirty Lit­tle Se­cret by Deborah Lipp­man

Cush­nie et Ochs Nail art: the two words con­jure im­ages of ’80s-style neon graf­fiti on long talons, or the crys­tals and glit­ter favoured by 14-year-olds prep­ping for the school dance. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This sea­son, the run­ways were awash with some se­ri­ously chic nail de­signs. Fresh colour com­bos—think pale pink and bur­gundy, or­ange and beige—as well as spikier shapes gave the tired French man­i­cure a dis­tinct edge, while per­fect lit­tle dots placed dead cen­tre or ran­domly scat­tered across nails spelled ef­fort­lessly off­beat. Else­where, cool metal­lic stripes and tonal che­quer­boards looked play­ful yet pol­ished. So when you book in for your next mani, why not forgo your usual claret or nude, and ex­press your­self with a dar­ing de­sign.
