The Hottest Nail Trends To Try At Your Next Manicure

We get it, nail trends are tricky! Eye-catching lacquers and nail art often inspire an internal monologue that simultaneously screams “ah-maz-zing” and “eek.” To help distill all the options, we extrapolated two main categories from the Fall 2016 runways. First, there’s some subtle—dare we say neutral?—nail art on the scene that incorporates a linear theme. From edgy French tips to gilded stripes to negative space lines, these designs are downright wearable. Second, a fresh crop of colors have arrived and are certain to update your go-tos—think chalky pink and glossy black. Here, 10 runway trends we’re relying on to get us out of our current lackluster manicure daze.
