Geometric Nail Art - London Fashion Week A/W 2013



Throughout London Fashion Week, I'm collaborating with Maybelline to bring you three of the top nail trends from the catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2013. Telling you what the models are wearing and showing you easy ways to create on-trend nail art inspired by the collections.

The second nail trend that has caught my eye this week has been the different styles of geometric nail art being seen not only on the nails of the models, but within the designs themselves and amongst the front row!

The models nails at the one show were adorned with geometric nail art on the ring finger, and deep hues on the remaining nails, a striking look but one that is easy to recreate at home (I've used Maybelline's Colour Show in Burghundy Kiss for my version).

Another designer's designs had a geometric feel to them which works perfectly for nail art inspiration. While the models on the day were sporting a fierce red and black reverse manicure, I've combined their look with the geometric tip trends that have been cropping up a lot this week to create an inspired look using Maybelline's Colour Show polishes in 'Blackout' and 'Candy Apple'.


(On a side note... keep an eye out for tomorrow's post for more on the red polishes of the season!)

My final, and favourite geometric look of the week comes not from the catwalk, but from the run-up to Fashion Week. Although the nails on the Todd Lynn catwalk were nude (see yesterday's post for all the info) Maybelline's celebrity manicurist Michelle Humphrey created an array of geometric designs backstage in the run up to London Fashion Week, which she shared via her twitter. It was these designs that caught my attention above all others this season. An eclectic mix of nude, acid brights and geometric symmetry. This look is so easy to recreate, it requires little explanation. 
What do you all think of the geometric nail art trend? 

Get fashion for your fingertips with the New Maybelline ColourShow nail lacers. From nudes to acid brights, the colour is bold and crisp due to the formula's transparent gel-base, giving a fierce fashion finish. Only £2.99 RRP in-store now.

  1. The bottom one is gorgeous! Definitely trying it out! I'm not such a fan of nail art because I'm pretty bad at it. You make it look so simple!

  3. Those are so cool. Too bad I'm shit and doing my nails. I like the first style the best and the second picture next, though they're a bit too winter for me right now. It's already spring weather in California. It's time for bright spring colors. : )

  4. I just bought the Colour Show in Sweet Clementine the other day, and its by far the most amazing mail polish I own! Not just the color but the formula as well. In Canada it's only $3.00 ...bit of a steal if you ask me ;)

  5. I think it's a cool trend for the most part although I definitely wouldn't have the patience to do that to my nails. I really like the way the last picture looks- love the pop of yellow! :)

  58. What lovely pictures you have taken! I love seeing people expressing their fashion in their own ways. Not really into fashion but seeing people be passionate to what they love during LFW is great. I passed Somerset House the other day and there were some very interesting colours and clothes that people put together.

    I hope you will check out this post and comment on my friend’s post about the KTZ show during LFW while meeting Carri of Cassette Playa and ex-Danity Kane member, Dawn Richards: http://denzelwynter.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/london-fashion-week-aw-13-lfw-day-1.html
