As fall wardrobes get prepped to come out of the closet, don’t forget to swap in new polish. See Elle.com top 10 favorite nail looks from the runway.
10. JOHN PAUL GAULTIER
The shiny silver at Jean Paul Gaultier proved to be a neutral-but-not that’s surprisingly subtle.
9. LOUISE GRAY
Louise Gray showed classic basic black-and-white, turning the old-school French into something more deliberately sever.
The shape at Ruffian was an oblong oval, faked by the magic of a press-on nail. Color-wise, a candy-hued purple brightened things up.
Simple, sophisticated nails have graduated from beige to ballet slipper and, now, the lavender taupe spotted at Valentino.
6. ALICE + OLIVIA
Black’s never felt less goth than at Alice + Olivia, where charcoal got playful with flecks of gold.
5. ZAC POSEN
The models at Zac Posen had high-shine red tips that felt more lacquered than ever.
The pale, ladylike lavender that showed up at Dior could work for afternoon tea or the office.
3. TRACY REESE
Chrome veered from its traditional gold or silver and into peacock blue at Tracy Reese.
2. KATE SPADE
At Kate Spade, nail art took a walk on the retro side, whose models showed off simply sweet polka dots.
Proof that certain classics never go out of style: Designers like Armani showed a deep berry shade that will always work for fall.
