It’s all about bold splashes of colour at Desigual. Shirt, Marni

Pre-fall’s hottest nail colours were made up of warm, rich hues, but Fall has a decidedly different take – one that’s a lot bolder and more fun too.

At Desigual, it was Jackson Pollock. At Kenzo, glimpses of Clyfford Still. And at Vivienne Westwood Red Label, wild strokes that would make Franz Kline proud. The way we’re seeing it, this season’s most most creative manicure has a modern painterly streak: free-form drips and splatters (read: you can’t go wrong); the more colours, the better.
