The temperatures outside may suggest we are still in Winter but in the world of fashion it is already Spring.  On the catwalks of New York, London, Milan and Paris models have paraded the Spring/Summer ranges for the world’s top designers and created the must have trends for 2013.  But what was on their nails???

The top trends:

  • At Dolce&Gabbana, Chanel, Mark Jacobs, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Gucci, the manicure seems surprisingly, to have gone back to basics – natural looking, pale nails with only a hint of nude or peach nail polish promoted a  fresh and elegant look!
  • The models at Jason Wu, Rue du Mail and Vera Wang revealed a darker side – in contrast to the natural look these models wore black.   Black has been popular for a couple of years now and goes with very outfit you have.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Metallic Nails and Jewellery – Spring 2013 will also have a bit of bling to it. To spice up your nails add a silver strip or latest hot trend – nail jewellery. Models at Katie Gallagher, Monika Chiang, Nicole Miller and Ruffian did just that.
  • Over at Vivienne Westwood, Tracy Reese, Phillip Lim, Veda the two colour manicure was being rethought too, some inverted and put the small line at the cuticle, others added strong colours and matt finishes.  We all know the classic French is a bit passé, however when you add a bit of a colour and funk it up you can come up with quite an interesting nail design.
