Graphic French manicures and gradient hues take centre stage at Spring/Summer 2017

We all know the standard routine before heading to a manipedi session prior to the festive season: All phones out in a haste as the search for the best nail art/colour combo on Instagram commences. It's no surprise that glittery, shimmering details are foolproof elements for any Christmas-ready beauty look, but why not go against the grain and don new nail trends for this month?


For those planning to make a statement with your nails without going with the typical Christmas colours and motifs (and we mean red/green or Santa Claus nail art), this list of nails spotted backstage at Spring/Summer 2017 might tickle your fancy. Intriguing trends not to miss out on include: a twist on the regular French manicure at Cushnie et Ochs with graphic white stripes on a nude base; Rodarte's unique way of highlighting the cuticles instead with gold glitter applied around the nails, and matte metallic nails with a dash of colour close to the tips at Desigual. 


In case the need to screenshot some major #nailinspo arises (so your manicurist knows what to do), we've compiled 13 nail trends that are a refreshing change from the usual glittery spectacle. Which is your favourite?
