Think a manicure is just the final touch to a catwalk look? Think again. As backstage nail artists push the boundaries of their creativity, manicures are reclaiming the limelight and becoming tiny pieces of fashion art in their own right.
We've seen a flurry of new textures, attention-grabbing colourways and interesting nail art.
