Stay ahead of the nail trends

Nadia El Ferdaoussi

What the fash pack will be wearing on their nails right through to 2015

It might be only subconsciously, but you're likely to already be following nail trends.  Your colour choice will be influenced by seasonal collections that are put out there by the big brands, shape maybe what you've seen on your favourite Kardashian. 

Those trends had to start somewhere though and strangely, someone some place in the world is deciding what's going to be on your nails in a year's time!

Much the same as how make up trends are dictated (and in turn new products, formulas and collections), collaborations happen between designers and leading industry experts who will look at colours, prints and even fabric textures before deciding what will compliment the catwalk collection on the models' face and nails.

So it seems the latest limited edition range from your favourite brand isn't just pulled from thin air, although their shade names might be!

We take a look behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week with Essie for an INSIDER look into the creations that graced the runway and in turn will polish our nails in the months to come.

Scroll through our gallery above to see the latest looks straight off the NYFW catwalk and the Essie polishes that can be used to recreate at home.

Pastels and nudes are looking huge, but no need to wait 'til next Spring...I'm off for a mint mani now!

Essie is available in selected pharmacies nationwide, €9.99.


Don't miss this week's INSIDER Magazine, where we have a YSL sponsored shoot which is fashion for him and her, and beauty for her.

Pick up Insider Magazine with the Irish Independent every Thursday.  This week we look at male grooming: hair removal in order to maximise body art’s effect
