The best nail art from NYFW to inspire your next manicure

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. 

While not all looks are the most wearable (Libertine's furry manicure, we're looking at you), they all offer some creative inspiration for when a classic mani just won't do. 

So step away from the pillar-box red. Here's our pick of the most exciting nail trends spotted backstage to whet your beauty appetite.
