Jeremy Scott showcased a new nail trend at New York Fashion Week that we’re still thinking about two weeks later. Much like justifying the purchase of *another* winter coat, if it’s still on our mind, it’s time we tried it. These – are orbit nails.
The trend plays with negative space on the nail bed, circling the edge with bold colours. You may know ‘em as ‘outline nails’ – a look that straddles a conventional manicure with nail art. If you’ve never considered nail art your ‘thing’, this could be your entree.
Scott opted for cobalt blues and neon pinks and turquoise to ‘orbit’ the nails of his model’s on the runway. Our take? Whatever you fancy. Make it metallic, choose pastels over brights, chuck on some crystals (well, with extreme precision); our only advice is this – leave it to the pros to nail it.
