Nail Trends You Need To Try: The Down Under Edition

Posted by May 04, 2012 5:15 pm

This season's grown out manicures were taken to the next level with super long oval shape on the Gail Sorronda runway. 


The five different lip looks at Jayson Brunsdon were complemented by five metallic jewel nail looks. We love this rich metallic silver. 


Ellery took the classic burgundy nail to the next level in their two-toned runway version. 


Oroton showed that neon manicures aren't going anywhere with their short, square citrus nails.  


Glitter polishes were the order of the day at Watson X Watson to create a dipped-in-gold effect. 


To complement the fresh floral prints, models at Zimmermann sported a pearly white mani that has us yearning for longer nails. 


Clashing colors and nail designs somehow looked perfectly at home at the Jenny Kee show. 


Samantha Harris showed us how to do black and white right backstage at the Oroton show. 


The neon pink nails with orange tips at We Are Handsome have us counting the days till summer. 


What goes better with neon orange mullets and plastic eyebrows than an eclectic mix of nail looks, from metallic wraps to chevron printed fuchsia nails?


We’re obsessed with nails. There’s no two ways about it. From the newest nail polish releases to out-there nail wraps and DIY designs, we simply can’t get enough. So obviously we’ve been stalking the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia Spring Summer 2012/2013 runways to see what nail looks the Aussie designers have chosen to pair with their new season looks. We figure that if they’re already fourteen hours ahead of us New York City folk, they must also be ahead on nail trends, right?

We personally loved the black and white grown out manicures we saw at Gail Sorronda and Oroton, and were glad to see the return of richer jewel tones with a new season metallic finish at Jayson Brunsdon and Ellery. However, we still think our favorite might be the gorgeous neon pink and orange nails at We Are Handsome – so much so that we’re already mentally calculating how we can get the look for the weekend. So if you are as obsessed with nails as us, click through the slideshow to see our most coveted looks from the Down Under designers!
