Best Nail Designs For Fall From NYFW 2016

Fall is creeping up on us and it’s time to check out the best nail designs to try this season from the New York Fashion Week!

Edgy clothes and gorgeous makeup aren’t the only focus of NYFW 2016. The event also featured some of the best nail designs from the best nail artists in the fashion world.

Outfits that draw heads don’t just feature the clothes alone. It also has everything to do with the accessories you wear and, of course, your manicure! That’s why designers who joined most prestigious fashion show for fall and winter in the Big Apple also paid meticulous attention to their models’ nail art designs!

While designer clothes might not be within my budget, I can certainly recreate the best nail designs featured during the event!

I know most people feel the same way as me. While having your nails made by celebrity nail artists is not quite doable, you can still try to recreate them. Several nail art enthusiasts like me already tried to do these nails, from the easiest to the wackiest.

Check out the best nail designs from the NYFW F/W 2016 show and tell me which one you think you can do! I’m definitely trying all of them!

Best Nail Designs For Fall From NYFW 2016

1. Metallic Nail Art From Opening Ceremony

Metallic nail art is all the rage this year! It’s no wonder that Opening Ceremony incorporated the bling into their collection for NYFW. Nail art genius Naomi Yasuda’s creative output really enhanced the futuristic theme of the collection.

Get a silver, gold, or even rose gold polish to recreate this design! You can also go over the edge with this chrome nail art tutorial.

2. Two-Toned French Tips From Cushnie Et Ochs

Christian Louboutin’s Fall/Winter collection featured a two-colored version of the classic French Tip for the Cushnie Et Ochs show. Alicia Torello used two of the brand’s polish colors (Lady Page and Khol) and created a fresh look for the models!

If the two-toned version is too complicated for you to do on your own, try using black nail polish for your tips instead. Check out this article for more French Nail design ideas.

3. The Single Line from Laquin Smith

Nail art expert Jun Watanabe stuck to the minimalist theme during the Laquin Smith show. Instead of keeping to the nude matte base, he added a straight golden line in the middle to give it more character. Isn’t it such a simple yet gorgeous design?

4. The Single Dot From Sally Lapointe

It seems like the nail art designers were going for the minimalist look this season! Try out this really easy single dot nail design similar to what the models at the Sally Lapointe Show wore on the runway!

5. Nasty Nails From Hood By Air

According to, Hood by Air founder Shayne Oliver wanted a nail design that looked like “dirt and grime.” It’s ironic then that the “dirty” nail art produced was made using Chanel polish.

6. Ombre French Tip

There’s so much you can do with French tips! That’s exactly what nail tech Maria Salandra figured out for Rihanna’s debut runway show. She created a frosted ombre French tip for the models to show off their Fenti X Puma outfits! This tutorial will show you a different variation of the Ombre nail design.
