While everyone else might be focusing on the hair and beauty trends from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, we have recently come to appreciate the beauty of nail trends.
We’re going to take you through some of the biggest shows of fashion week to reveal just which of the nail trends will be big during the summer.
Since OPI was the official nail partner for Maticevski SS 2015 runway show, you can guarantee that the colours looked amazing.
There were two main looks that went down the runway: Soft pastels and dark gunmetals. Glitter polishes were added over the top as a feature, and the looks were finished off with OPI Rapid Dry Top Coat before strutting it down the runway.
Where: Daniel Avakian
For Daniel Avakian’s return to the runway, a stunning neutral manicure and pedicure was prepared for all models backstage. Karon McKendrick Taylor for FABY Australia kept nails looking round and trimmed, which worked perfectly to complement the clothing and open-toed sandals for spring.
Shades of Pink
Kym Ellery’s collection was the first show to open MBFWA at Carriageworks, and was inspired by women from post-impressionist paintings. Melisa Giraldo worked together with OPI to create a look which suited the entire collection.
A clean base was achieved with the OPI Clean Ridge Filler, then two coats of the OPI Put It In Neutral, and finally a sheer-pink beige from the new OPI SoftShades Collection.
A classic topcoat of OPI Rapid Dry Top Coat was applied to give a glossy sheen.
Where: Jennifer Kate
For her debut show at MBFWA, Jennifer Kate tried a fresh look for the models walking down the runway. FABY Australia created a stunning white nail, which is perfect on all skin tones and ideal all-year round. A matte top coat was applied over the top to give nails a lived-in look.
