Nail Art Inspired by the Glitter and Sparkle on the Runway


Is there a season where sparkle doesn’t outshine every other trend? We think not. But how the glisten reflects certainly took a different tack this fall. Designers sent their sparkle out in strips of various mediums: At Bahmain, holographic fringe rustled radiantly while at Christopher Kane, thin ropes of rhinestones glinted gorgeously across bare skin. Whether rainbows of twinkling tinsel (seen at Ashish) or hyper-reflective ball-and-chain tassels (seen at Paco Rabanne), lanky luster certainly puts the shimmy in shimmer.
