Fresh from the runway: the manicure trends of 2015

Metallic accents, negative space, 3D applications, refined ombre effect and creative juxtaposition of colors: just when you thought you’ve seen it all in terms of nail art, manicure trends launched 2015 demonstrate that the imagination of the professionals when it comes to beauty and nail art innovations are far from being exhausted.

Here are the latest trends in manicure directly from the catwalk. Choose the ones that suit you best and wear them everyday!

Negative space
Clippings remain an important trend in the field of clothing, and in 2015 they start their transition to the manicure. The effect is as minimalist as it is spectacular, and each manicure is a unique piece of art. Inspire yourself from Dion Lee Zimmerman proposals and choose one side or half moon french side in metallic colors, or go for something truly spectacular: focus on the absence of color in geometric shapes, as we saw in the presentation or Nonoo Spring Kye.

Half-moon
If the half-moon manicure was created by the stylists for Paramount film divas of the 50’s, this style is currently renounced to any association with retro style, becoming as futuristic as possible. Negative space is preserved in half-moon nail micro trend, but interpretations may vary: in case of submission Del Pozo the nails were painted in a shade of neon coral, while the Charlotte Ronson has kept the same rounded shape of the moons,  alternating between nails painted in a shade of pastel like mint green and half-moons left open, or vice versa.

French twist
The classic manicure styles seem to be out of fashion. And this is the case of the french manicure. This season we see on the catwalk a new french manicure style, with double headboard or in cheerful white and pistachio green, as we saw in the presentation Sophie Theallet, or white and silver metallic, like Livni and Marissa Webb Alon manicure.

Reverse french
Nothing can evoke more clearly the essence of glamour than precious and bright colors like silver, gold or the Ruffian chrome style . We’ve seen the presentations of Cushnie et Ochs Carmen Marc some refined combinations of matte black and nude tones, marking the cuticle. But you can wear this design even if you do not identify with a glam image, opting for a messy look, like in the presentation of  Rodarte, who showed the entire nail painted in a shade of navy, then wiping the surface with polish nail, except the cuticle.

Star color: Tangerine
Solar shades of orange, peach or coral are ideal to instill a tropical vibe both on your nails and your mood, even if there are several months until the vacation. Designers have proposed you look for inspiration in your fruit basket: shades of papaya, apricot, tangerine and melon.

3D Applications
Discrete or opulent, 3D applications are permitted in all shapes, colors and combinations! They are definitely the secret of a glamour look, as in the presentations of Blonds or Honor, where they used combinations of pearls, necklaces and beads, metal, or a look of refinement and delicate, like the presentations of Lela Rose or Houghton, where they used round applications, lowercase, in combination with nude for nail polish.

Marble effect
Boho is the watchword in 2015, so marbled touches are no longer found only clothes, but also on the nails. Tracy Reese presented in her collection vibrant manicures in organic tones, like white and nude in a stylized reinterpretation of Ikat prints, while Rebecca Minkoff and Desigual opted for designs that seem to evoke the nostalgia of the 60’s hippie prints, like the tie-dye style. You can recreate your own manicure at home by adding nail polish in water, where your imagination is the only factor that can limit.
