Runway to Real Way: Fall Nail Designs


We’re back with more fall nail art–there are just so many fabulous fall tones and trends from the catwalk. From Kate Spade to La Perla, these nails will leave you wanting more.




Dark, twilight polish is a must this fall. Nicholas K showed his love for dark shades in his fall runway show. This nail design combines a subtle grey with a metallic sparkle. Gorgeous glitter dipped tips add more personality to his fearless collection. The dark shade makes these nails great for any occasion. Here’s how to get this edgy, chic look:


Step 1:  Make sure nails are clean and polish free.


Step 2: Apply a base coat. Leave until dry (5-10 minutes). Try: Deborah Lippmann 2 Second Nail Primer.


Step 3: Using the new shade, Always Slate, Never Early, apply one coat of polish. 


Step 4: Apply a second coat. This time, Instead of leaving to dry, dip the tips into a pod of  Glitter Dust. Try Nail Art Glitter Dust: Royal Gold.


Step 5: Leave glitter dipped nails to dry for about 20 minutes.


Step 6: After nails are dry, top with a layer of a top coat polish. 


Step 7: Let dry and voila, beautiful polished paws.

Nail shape is also a big trendsetter this season. From natural filed nails to spiky claws, the runway had it all. Nails even had their own accessories!

Here’s how to get this sexy, fierce look:

We’ve talked about half moon manis before, and this fall, La Perla showed off this lovely two-toned nail design at New York Fashion Week. It’s modern, classy and unique but subtle at the same time, perfect for the office and apres-cinq alike. Tres chic! Here’s how to get this unforgettable look:


Step 1: Apply a base coat polish and leave to try for about 10-15 minutes.


Step 2: Once base coat polish dries, apply a nude tone polish to nails. Leave to dry for  10-15 minutes, then apply a second coat. Try Deborah Lippman Tiny Dancer.


Step 3: After nails are dry, use a black polish, creating a half moon shape on the base of your nail (putting a curved piece of paper on your nail might help create a more clean line). Try SEPHORA by OPI Blasted Nail Colour Blasted Black.


Step 4: Once dry, apply a shiny top coat. Try Clinique A Different Nail Enamel Base and Top Coat.
