Nail trend: Black, white & chic

Nails go graphic this fall

Nail trend: Black, white & chic
Embrace the unexpected impact of black and white when it comes to your nails

We've always loved the look of crisp, white toenail polish with our summer sandals and lace-up gladiators, but this graphic look will take you right into fall.

Work with a colour palette of black, white and nude polish or play with negative space. At Zero + Marie Cornejo, beige-white nails sported 'moving swatches of black polish with a different position on each nail. While at Alexis Mabille, elongated black triangles decorated an almost spartan clear nail. Try and at-home kit like Ciaté London's Monochrome Manicure, to create these patterns at home. Or head to a nail salon, but be sure to do a gel manicure like Gelish so that the colours do not run into each other. There's nothing worse than a muddy manicure.

Not handy with your nail art? Go for simple all-black or all-white nails, keeping them short and chic. Look how unexpectedly crisp and clean all-white look nails look on the models at Holly Fulton even when paired with the richer colour palette and embellished textures of fall. Bonus? They go with practically any outfit.
