SS16 Micro Trend: Jewel tones
The SS16 runways saw its fair share of colour, but these jewel-toned nail lacquers and confetti sequins were made for the festive season

Want to wear rich, jewel tones this Christmas? Sure you can don the colour in your cocktail dress or velvet pumps. Or you can go the unconventional route and sport them on your nail tips and even on your eyes. At Issa, the models wore a rich, royal blue polish that sparkled like a glass of champagne. At Gareth Pugh, the painted faces on face stockings — inspired by performance artist Leigh Bowery — were matched with glittery red talons. You may not want to sport such long nails, but that rich, ruby slipper-esque colour is definitely a keeper. Finally at Ashish, the hair and makeup team went all out, with sequinned, confetti-like embellishments glued to the eyelids, and sprinkled liberally on their hair. Come in this look and you'll literally bring the party with you wherever you go.
