“We’re so excited to see classic blue chosen as the Pantone color of the year for 2020 because we already see this color becoming more popular for nails,” says Dunne. Jin Soon Choi agrees, noting that blue is definitely an It color for next year.
“I used various nudes during the 2020 fashion week shows for Tibi, Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Coach, and Longchamp,” recalls Choi. She recommends experimenting by using nude alone, nude/ombre, and nude in a matte finish for a cool spin on the nude trend.
Choi concurs, sharing, “Simple nail art, such as tweaked versions of French manicures and halfway negative space, confetti, and one big dot on each finger will be popular.” A lot of artists used this modern style of French nail art during the NYFW S/S 20, as seen above at the Rag & Bone show.
Celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik created this Louis Vuitton logo manicure for Riverdale’s Madelaine Petsch.
The nail trend that we never saw coming? Egg art. But there’s something quite adorable about a white splatter design with a tiny dot of yellow yolk.
Choi is excited to see vibrant ’80s colors back in the mix, with fun designs or a different color on each finger as seen during several recent fashion shows.
