During the fashion week it often happens that manicure is nail art take the position of group shoulder to make-up and hair, and of course to the clothes. However, this was absolutely not the case for the fashion shows spring summer 2020. On several catwalks were the nails, not hair or makeup, to lord it (and to receive more like on social networks).
Here is an overview of the 2020 nail trends (spring summer), to revive the colder months and make you arrive very early in the summer.
1. The french manicure, re-edition of the Nineties
The Nineties are back in vogue. From the replicas of Friends, to the revival of Cruel Intentions on Netflix, passing through the brown lipstick, the sunglasses to the Matrix and i baby carriers. As for nails, the French manicure has seen a long-awaited relaunch, but the new version has nothing to do with the square, long and flashy nails you used to wear.
“I see people wearing cycling shorts, baby carriers and jackets with shoulder pads, so it's perfectly normal for one of the nineties nail trends to be back in fashion,” says New York nail artist Miss Pop, author of the spring summer 2020 manicure by Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung and Jeremy Scott.
“This new design is not at all like the classic one pink-white french manicure and double we are used to. (Rather,) is an extension of the trend negative space – and forget to use a single shade, the nail is a canvas on which each color can take any form.
The creation of Miss Pop for Prabal Gurung is very close to the traditional French. “I took the classic French manicure and made it modern using the negative space. Thanks to the Kit Naked Manicure Zoya, I highlighted the shades blush of the nail bed and made one tip ultra thin and sinuous white that it went to cover the natural white of the nail, lengthening it”, Specifies Miss Pop.

For the Oscar de la Renta show, Miss Pop took inspiration from the themed collection Caribbean, and has created one french manicure ombré bright using the Zoya enamel in the colors Arizona, Sawyer and Laurel, where normally the white tip is applied. “I called this Cuban French look, because it is a very fashionable manicure a You love me, my hometown “, says the nail artist.

Yes, months after its launch we are still obsessed with the series Euphoria produced by HBO. The expressive personality of the TV series has made itself felt in the exuberant and carefree make-up of the spring summer 2020 shows, but it is on the nails that we have really seen the principle of cause and effect.

As for the colors, the palette of Euphoria is all-inclusive. “When people ask me what color would look best on their nails, I tell them to choose the one that attracts them the most and to enjoy it,” says Miss Pop. “After all, enamel is not a tattoo, lasts only a week or two. “
3. Nail varnish nude and natural manicure
As long as there is a request for a “see-I don't see” trick, there will also be shiny, healthy and neat nails. The look created by the nail artist Rita Remark for the collection Kate Spade spring summer 2020 is what every woman addresses when she wants to feel in order. The nails are left short and rounded, with only a hint of the edge of the nail on display, and nothing but a pass of the legendary Essie Mademoiselle enamel, the base and the top coat. Miss has been a basic element of fashion week for years and is still the neutral shade that enhances more any complexion.

Remark has recreated this feeling of simplicity – although with a longer and retro-shaped nail shape Veronica Beard, using a combination of natural colors from the nuances pink.

The nails incredibly elegant and almost flesh-colored by Simone Rocha meet all our expectations – made by the London-based manicurist Ama Quashie, the nails remain short, painted with enamel Kure Bazaar in the shade French Rose, and decorated by a simple bead. That pearl opens a whole new world to nail care.

In order to afford this impeccable look, one must have the same care in preparation and in the final phase. “Nails and skin must be hydrated with cuticle oil. It is a reinforcer and keeps the cuticles. I always apply a little cuticle oil before an important meeting, so it looks like it just came out of the salon with a brand new manicure, “says Miss Pop.
4. Extreme Nail Art, impractical, but that leaves the sengo
Although the nail design of this season include all kinds of inspiration, experiments with colors, art and finishes, there is a detail that made it the master: the length. With colored nails raspberry (using the Essie enamel) of Naomi Yasuda for Tommy Hilfiger x Zendaya, to the form a stiletto of the claws of Mei Kawajiri for Tom Ford, the ideal size is long and impractical (but in the end it is worth every inconvenience).

“I think every kind of length is beautiful and gives the opportunity to make an elegant design,” says Miss Pop. “Personally, I prefer a Oval that extends beyond the tips of the fingers. I think this is the best way to stretch them. ”Long nails will not limit your choice of color or design; the tips bright at the Oscar de la Renta show, plots psychedelic by Jeremy Scott and the lengths transparent of Halpern I am the proof.
