The catwalks of Milan, London, Paris and New York were a-buzz with SS16 fashion this February, including heaps of inspiring nail art you can pioneer right now. If you’re hooked on beautiful nails, but are looking for something new, this is the blog post for you. We’ve rounded up five of our favourite nail art looks and brand new nail trends from February’s fashion weeks to inspire you to do something different. Bored of ombre and not interested in “Pinteresty” newspaper print nails? These sophisticated styles will be right up your street…
1. Embellished Cuticles
Cult Korean nail artist Unistella has created a hypnotic new nail art look which she is calling “shadow nails”. An overall look which includes a graphic nail style with beautifully decorated cuticles too. We’re not entirely convinced of how practical this shimmering style would be every day, but for a special occasion, these innovative nails are amazing!
2. Polka Dots

There were a lot of pared back, graphic looks on the fingers of the world’s fashion weeks’ models this February, but we’re especially into this simple, single polkadot style as seen on Adam Selman’s catwalks.
3. Fruity Fingers
These pretty pineapples graced the fingers of the models on Zang Toi’s SS16 runways, adding more than a dose of sunshine and summer to proceedings. We love these for a glamorous summer getaway – packing in plenty of kitchy fun with a cool graphic twist that makes us crave a poolside cocktail.
4. Foiled Again
Give your fingertips some sparkle with this season’s trend for foil nail art. Glittery and pretty but not fussy or overly glitzy, we like that these eye-catching nails grab attention without stealing the spotlight or coming over all “diva”.
5. Cuticle Contrast
We adore a nail art look which is easy to recreate at home – and this one is simple and sophisticated. A contrasting cuticle at the base of the nail gives subtle flash and flair to an everyday nail look. Gorgeous!
