No I’m not talking about the wrinkles… not this time anyway. I’m talking about nail art.

Using a striper brush to create fine line detail is one of the most popular forms of nails art but spring summer trends we’ll see it given a new twist. Think pared-back styles with a super fine edge using sharp parallel lines.

We’ve seen countless variations on the French manicure, from a focus on the half moon, to glitter tips and contrasting matt and glass effects but the latest catwalk variation turned the trend on its head. by focusing on the base of the nail, but reversing the half moon curve into a crescent, techs have created a fresh take for the spring summer fashion shows.

One of the most striking but simple looks to recreate, variations of which have been seen on countless catwalks this season. The trend is keeping with the simple, minimalist nail art vibe of the season. the half way line can be painted horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
