The nail looks spotted at Spring/Summer 2018 New York Fashion Week were anything but predictable. Edgy metallics, vivid brights and spicy hues gave designers’ looks a run for their money. But don’t think you have to wait until the weather heats up to rock the trending hues. Check out the top polish shades to steal from the runway.
Usually reserved for the colder months, rosy metallics made an unexpected appearance on models’ tips at the Tom Ford and Michael Costello runway shows. Though the finishes were different--a rose gold glitter and black ombre at Tom Ford and a shimmery array of metallic shades at Michael Costello--the outcome was the same: ultra-glam with a hint of drama.

Think citrus hues are reserved for the spring and summer months? Think again! Tangerine was a mega-hit on the NYFW runways and it’s bound to be a go-to shade all year long. For a more wearable, winter-ready take on the trend, opt for an orange tone that edges on the red side instead of a bright neon.

A staple in every polish aficionado's collection, the classic shade commanded attention on the Adam Selman and Vfiles runways. The key to making the shade look less “Pretty Woman” and more cutting edge? A sleek nail shape and an ultra-glossy finish.
