It was huge for spring and it certainly makes one of the best A/W nail trends. The silver additions throughout the collections are seen as an ode to the future, where apparently everything is expected to be gleaming metallic.

For all of 2016, shimmers and glitter are all over the place, from shoes to bags, the clothing and even nails. In spring it was a top trend and now it has become major for the fall as well.

Remember the funky styles for the nails from the ‘90s? It was all about the crazy combinations of designs, with colours, drawings, cartoons, flags, and all kinds of interesting trends throughout, well they're back in true 90s fashion!
Minimal often has maximum appeal and that is what is seen at Delpozo with the clear background and simple line down the center of the nail extending onto the cuticle.

Manis are back in style but not in the traditional way, this year we are seeing negative, opposite colours and lines, glitter edges as well as some rather intriguing dripping styles with greyish edges and lines down one side appearing as if dripping paint.
Who does not love the marble look? Tie-dye has also been seen in 2016, making the marble nails one of the most expected A/W 16 manicure trends. They look lovely with the more naturalized coloring, mysterious yet visual and oh so covetable.
