They were sorely missed during their season-long hiatus, as pale, pinkish neutrals reigned supreme, but with a host of embellished, gem-decorated talons stealing the spotlight across the SS18 shows, it’s safe to say that statement nails are making a major comeback.

Take Jeremy Scott, where fingers were transformed into fiery orange-tipped canvases spruced up with silver sparkles; or Byblos, which delivered plenty of drama, graffiti-style, with splashes of multi-hued graphics layered over glossy white nail polish. 

For an easier-to-pull-off look with less “roar,” opt for a French manicure with a twist, as seen at House of Holland, where bare nails peeped through handpainted matte white waves. So file, buff and colour away, and let your beautified fingertips be your accessories du jour.
