Nail the runway with these works of art

We thought we’d let our fingers do the cat-walking with nail art inspired by Spring/Summer 2017 collections.

Black and gold aren’t necessarily the most “spring-y” of colours but then again, when has Nicolas Ghesquière ever played by the rules?

A collection characterised by impeccable tailoring and an insouciant grungy-glam vibe, Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2017 provided the perfect inspiration for this nail art.

Simple, chic, and absolutely no 3D appliqués, please!

The final result: A discreet gold detailing and a finely-drawn lattice design paired with sleek, matte black nails – a fitting juxtaposition of tough and delicate with nary a diamanté in sight. 

Among the many techy motifs at the Chanel Spring 2017 show were crisscrossing cables that echoed the weave of Chanel’s signature boucle tweed.

The geometric pattern of Look 55 was the specific jumping-off point for this nail art.

The final result: A striking and polished techno art that definitely channeling the digital vibes of Chanel.

A little bit dangerous, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll: what’s not to love about the new and improved Saint Laurent girl?

She has a penchant for gilded metallics, which means chrome nails were the way to go.


The final result: A shiny silver metallic set of fingers that are right on the pulse of Anthony Vaccarello’s YSL siren. 

Despite the themes of female empowerment and emancipation, there was something decidedly girly and uber feminine in Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut collection for Dior.

Inspired by the diaphanous tulle skirts in barely-there shades of blush pink and lavender, we go for the classic gel manicure here.

The final result: A whimsical shower of gold stars and hand-drawn vine designs were made to echo the collection’s constellation and floral embroidery. Pretty in pink indeed.
