I don't know about you but for the past two weeks my Instagram has been chocked full off the New York & London Fashion Weeks and I've been so inspired by some on the nail artistry happening.
Here I have collated some of my favourite artists/salons and looks from the two weeks and shall spend the next few months basque group in the trends ready for Autumn and Winter.
No contrasts here. It's all about black on black and white on white. Although you might find it difficult to find a foundation to match. For now.
Sophy Robson is one of the ultimate nail artists. It is one of my dreams to visit her London salon. One day!
Negative space and Minimalist nails are not going anywhere by the looks of things. I love that these perfect straight lines were all my hand. Deceptively difficult but so effective!
Sharmadean Reid and her extensive team of WAH nails girls are usually one of the first salons to create, pick up, or bring back trends. Here we can see they're rocking the 90s Nail Piercings. Time to hoke out my old piercing tool then!
Essie proving that gold is never old if you can mix it up with the minimalist trends.
This look from Caseynails actually took me a bit by surprise. It's quite "old school" nail art, a bit of a throw back to when everyone was starting out and just trying to perfect their lines. Perfect for recreating.
Sophie of The Illustrated Nail is another name you need to know if you're in any way interested in nail art. Here she used a custom mix of 3 polishes to create this deep Oxblood red for Jasper Conran! *makes note to buy all the Oxblood colours I can find*
Enough of all these wearable looks though here are some ridiculous avant-garde looks from CND (of Shellac fame) at NYFW.
Imagine heading down to post office with these bad boys on! *pokes eye*
So that's my Instagram run down. So inspired by these looks and can't wait to get to work.
Which are your faves?
