As fashion month continues to power on, we can’t help but obsess over the epic looks that hit the runway. But the magic of the catwalk extends beyond the clothes. This season, over-the-top beauty looks and ’90s hairstyles were coupled with wow-worthy (yet totally wearable) nail art ranging from back-to-basic nails to digits with a textured touch. Check below to see our top seven nail art trends we guarantee you’ll be strutting come Fall 2018.

1. Bare Minimum: Instead of going all out, most nail artists opted for a less-is-more approach. Classic manis rocked the runways of Alice + Olivia, Carolina Herrera, Matilde Buoso, and Prabal Gurung with hues of pale pinks, rocker blacks, ’80s reds, and concrete grays.

2. Iridescent Finish: Nothing is quite as dramatic quite as a mirrored accent. Reflective shades of greens, purples, and deep blues were the order of the day for designers like Jill Stuart, Naeem Khan, and Marc Jacobs.

3. Custom Hues: When one nail polish just won’t do, opt to combine two (or three) polishes to create a whole new look. Well, that’s exactly what happened at this season’s NYFW. Nail artists at shows like Jill Stuart and Sandy Liang layered two polishes on top of one another to make the nails really pop.

4. Classic Reds: A red mani is perfect for every and all occasion — especially for fashion week. Dark burgundy to Tonya Harding-inspired reds made appearances at Badgley Mischka, Christian Siriano, Oscar de la Renta, and Adam Selman. While some involved meshed textures or contrasting hues, most models had a classic mani to complement the designs.

5. Glitter: Creatures of Comfort and Cushnie et Ochs’ sparkly deets pushed the boundaries of glamorous glitter. From ombre hues to French manis, nothing was off limits.

6. Mix and Match: One design wasn’t enough for nails this season. Instead, digits were decked with multiple looks on each individual nail, whether it was Han Wen’s lighting bolt or Gypsy Sport’s monochromatic lines.
“I am a maximalist. I am a maximalist in personality. I am a maximalist emotionally . . . it’s just what I am,” said Libertine’s Johnson Hartig moments before delivering a ginormous bundle of joy to NYFW with a collection that was deliriously OTT (even the models’ nails were fringed) and represented a high point of the designer’s career. Free of the sometimes consciously clever references of the past, this collection felt more personal. It was a valentine to the fashions and clothes that made Hartig want to be a designer in the first place. Since its founding 17 years ago, the brand has evolved both in size and technique. Silk-screened vintage has segued into lavishly embellished pieces, many made of custom Italian fabrics with decorations handworked in India. Hartig has always had a magpie aesthetic, something that’s trending now that it has been taken up by the likes of Gucci’s Alessandro Michele. The Libertine look doesn’t approximate vintage, though; the collection is about 60 percent production pieces and 40 percent upcycled, “and it always will be,” Hartig vowed. For Fall, the designer said he moved on from using pieces from the 1940s and ’50s, and mixed a few Jazz Age dresses with “1980s Lacroix and Ungaro and all these things that were my education watching Style With Elsa Klensch on CNN on Saturday mornings. That’s a dream, to be carrying on this tradition by taking these clothes that have sort of been discarded . . . and being able to add my bit and see them carry on.” Among Hartig’s additions were typewriter keys, fringe, bedazzled chinoiserie motifs, crazy quilting, netsuke prints, edging reading #LibItUp, and sequined portraits of Cher. Clearly, he is a nonlinear thinker, and it’s not just upcycling that gives his work circularity: The show was presented with an all-embracing feel-good spirit of hopefulness and joy, much needed antidotes in these dystopian times. For Hartig, this collection is, in part, a reaction to the current political morass. “I think that one of the greatest forms of resistance that a creative person can do is to just create beauty and take it as far as they can,” he said. In doing so, Hartig reached a personal high

7. Textured: While the bare minimum did have its moment, OTT textured nails took the spotlight. Designers like Libertine, Tadashi Shoji, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh embellished nails with ombre fringes, mesh materials, and multi-colored confetti polishes for a playful effect.
