Sure, there are fashion weeks around the world, but for us (and many others), Paris is the one. It’s here where the most elegant runway trends are born, both in terms of sartorial style and beauty, too.
We asked 5 free nail brands Kure Bazaar, Mavala and PRITI NYC for what they believe were the top Nail Trends from Paris Fashion Week for Fall/Winter ’17, which we’re sure to see soon on high streets around the world.
Get the Blues
Blue is always in style: navy is the perfect alternative to black, for example. But for a trendier look, this FW ’17, blues have gone metallic. Kure Bazaar’s Rock Star shade is the perfect example of this mysterious shade, that will make you seem as though you’ve got sapphires on your fingertips. Pair with perfectly applied blue mineral eyeshadow to complete a dramatic evening look.
Say It With Stencils
Stencilled nail tips is a huge new trend, and it’s easier to do than you’d think. You can either buy stickers that appear to be like stencils, buy a stencil kit, or even make your own. Once you’ve laid down your base colour and it’s 100% dry, place the stencil on top of the nail and ‘colour in’ with a contrasting shade. Kure Bazaar’s Clean is always a good option on top of dark colours; try Khoi as a base. To complete the job, add a layer of top coat. We love how Balenciaga rocked this look, below (check out that gorgeous ring, too!).
As with the trend for blue, purple has also gone deeper and darker, and once again, with a metallic sheen. This is a shade that the cast of Twilight would adore; one that is as Gothic as it is glam. It contrasts beautifully with white or black outfits, like those shown on Paula Ka’s catwalk at Paris fashion week. Try Catwalk by Kure Bazaar for a deep shiny eggplant, or go with Mavala’s Vertigo Red – we love the tiny bottles: they reduce waste!
Eternally Chic French Nudes
Not only did Kure Bazaar show off classic French nudes at Mugler, but PRITI NYC displayed a collection ranging from blush nude in Coronation at Lacoste and the pale sheen of their ‘barely-there’ Pearl Drift at H&M and Milly to a darker, more beige-based nude called Sahara Rose – one of the brand’s top sellers – at Thakoon.
