Fashion Week

The most chic, cool and kitsch nails at fashion week

Fashion week isn't just about clothes. Oh no. Each catwalk show entails very important details such as deciding on the size of the models' eyebrows, what colour their lips should be, and, of course, how their nails should be painted.

While there are clear nail art trends that appear during fashion week, there are always such amazing talons on display, with many famed manicurists and nail artists on hand creating the most beautiful designs.

Here, we've rounded-up some of the cutest, chicest and most colourful uses of nail varnish on the catwalk this season. And if you fancy trying to recreate these looks at home, why not use our guide to giving yourself a long-lasting manicure.
