Geometric Nail Art – London Fashion Week A/W 2013

Throughout London Fashion Week, I’m collaborating with Maybelline to bring you three of the top nail trends from the catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2013. Telling you what the models are wearing and showing you easy ways to create on-trend nail art inspired by the collections.

The second nail trend that has caught my eye this week has been the different styles of geometric nail art being seen not only on the nails of the models, but within the designs themselves and amongst the front row!

The models nails at the one show were adorned with geometric nail art on the ring finger, and deep hues on the remaining nails, a striking look but one that is easy to recreate at home (I’ve used Maybelline’s Colour Show in Burghundy Kiss for my version).

Another designer’s designs had a geometric feel to them which works perfectly for nail art inspiration. While the models on the day were sporting a fierce red and black reverse manicure, I’ve combined their look with the geometric tip trends that have been cropping up a lot this week to create an inspired look using Maybelline’s Colour Show polishes in ‘Blackout’ and ‘Candy Apple’.

(On a side note… keep an eye out for tomorrow’s post for more on the red polishes of the season!)

My final, and favourite geometric look of the week comes not from the catwalk, but from the run-up to Fashion Week. Although the nails on the Todd Lynn catwalk were nude (see yesterday’s post for all the info) Maybelline’s celebrity manicurist Michelle Humphrey created an array of geometric designs backstage in the run up to London Fashion Week, which she shared via her twitter. It was these designs that caught my attention above all others this season. An eclectic mix of nude, acid brights and geometric symmetry. This look is so easy to recreate, it requires little explanation. 

What do you all think of the geometric nail art trend?
