We thought we’d seen it all when it comes to seriously swoon-worthy nail art, but we were wrong. London Fashion Week has brought us a whole host of gorgeous fingertips. At Sophia Webster, we saw Jenny Longworth create cute insect-inspired nails – our faves were the 3D ladybirds. While over at Michael Van Der Ham, CND painted nails with a base coat, then added a clear sticker, which was blotted with different colours to create a smudged Monet art effect. One more layer of vinyl polish went on, then another coat of blotted colours. The result? A super intricate, blurred flower effect – and yes, they hand-painted ALL of the nails. Our final nail envy was at the Giles show last night, where nail supremo Marian Newman bejewelled all 42 of the models’ talons with a whopping 120 crystals each! The silver and black looked bling-tastic. We can’t wait to DIY them all!
