From complex geometric cut out nails like at Kye to a simple vertical line at Nonoo – in the new season, negative space nails are done in all shapes and colours. Other popular trends – traditionally, all kinds of French manicures, like the silver tips at Alon Livne, and also unexpected 3-D looks like smudged Ruffian nails at Rodarte and pearl nails at Honor.
