Nail Trends for Spring 2017

The Beauty Industry walks hands in hands with the Fashion Industry and as such we follow avidly the latest trends and style crazes.

It you are already studying your wardrobe to assess what injections are required for the imminent Spring Season arrival – Spring?!? Who are we kidding?!? – you may want to start thinking about your manicure too! If you’re looking for stripes, florals, and nautical details for your wardrobe, your hands are likely to follow suit! Here is some inspiration provided by the trendiest runway shows!


Inspired by 3.1 Phillip Lim

INSPIRED BY: Philip Lim Spring/Summer '17 WHY WE LOVE IT: When worn over a neutral lacquer, a rose-gold French, simple silver line, or textured 14-karat tip is a refined way to pull off a precious metal manicure. For the best transition from a winter white look, add a metallic overlay by brushing a platinum polish on top as seen at 3.1 Phillip Lim. The result: easy, elegant, and elevated. 

 Continuing Desigual's Instagram-themed show, nail artist Keri Blair created "created six different nails inspired by trends on social media," including this grown-up glitter look.  Nail artist Miss Pop took inspiration from the Jordanian Desert for the look at Nicholas K. She started with a NCLA's Classics Nail Wraps in 'That Warm November Night and filed them down to shape. She added wavy bands in alternating shades of nude polish, then applied gold foil from her collab MissPop x Tattify in So Fancy. Once set she sealed the look with a clear topcoat.

Inspired by Vera Wang

INSPIRED BY: Vera Wang Spring/Summer '17 WHY WE LOVE IT: High-shine black polish is making its mark as 2017's best nail accessory. Whether vertically striped (as spotted at Vera Wang), curved around the cuticle, or painted at the tips—it's a simple but bold look that appears equally chic when painted over bare nails or alongside vibrant pops of color.  @jinsoonchoi

Inspired by Jeremy Scott

INSPIRED BY: Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer '17 WHY WE LOVE IT: Bright-colored pieces were all over the runways and this year nails follow suit. The quickest way to get into spring mode is with dots, stripes, and geometric patterns in bold contrasting hues. Just take a look at Jeremy Scott's vibrant, poppy fingertips to get in the mood.

Inspired by Creatures of Comfort

INSPIRED BY: Creatures of Comfort Spring/Summer '17 WHY WE LOVE IT: The French manicure continues to be completely reimagined for 2017. Multicolor tips on the Creatures of Comfort catwalk felt fresh and fun. Diagonally painted blue edges, bold black and white, and thin ribbons of red also prove how far this technique has come. One tip of utmost importance: be sure to coat the base of your nail with a sheer neutral and keep the length short and rounded. @aliciatnails

Manicurist Alicia Torello created a manicure that "was minimal yet high impact" on a sharp, stiletto shape. She contrasted two lacquers by Christian Louboutin: Just Nothing and Salonu.  @ginaedwards_ @fleuryrosenails @misspopnails Rebecca Minkoff nails by Essie were done in alternating halves of cherry red and pale nude that, like their collection, is available to purchase immediately.
