The textured nails are the hit of the Spring 2023 season. So naturally brands are trying to bring more options on the market and Nails Inc. is one of the most active ones. The brand already brought in the leather effect nail polish, the concrete effect lacquers in bold bright colors with rugged finish and also the kits for feather and bling finishes. But there is more up their sleeve and it’s a denim effect nail lacquer.

Launching in June the Denim Effect nail polish will retail at £19. The bright blue with a sparkle is looking beautiful and the studs add an element of nail art to the manicure just like the skulls in the leather kit.

Nails Inc. is wasting no time when it comes to creating new effects for the nails. In March the brand launches a Feather collection of nail laquers that cover the nails with feather-like particles that make for texture feather-y finish. These are the ready-made polishes as opposed to the brand’s Bling It On Feathers kit with a nail polish, a top coat and two bottles of feather-y sparkles which also come in Neon version.

For nail art enthusiasts the brand will be launching a Bling It On Crystaltastic Nails, ready made press on nails painted in different colors and encrusted with Swarovski crystals priced at £20 to £45.

With all the options the nail brands offer today the nail art has become a lot more accessible for those who prefer to do nails at home. The kits, nail wraps, nail effects lacquers are just so easy to use that it all takes the nail art to a whole new level.

Manicure is the ultumate accessory for any season so let’s take a look at New York Fashion WeekFall 2023 nails created by professionals specifically for designer shows.

Nail art is on the rise as well as nude or clear nail polish. While the latter was spotted at many shows we will concentrate on nail designs that capture attention and definitely add a lot to the look.

The Blonds are ever creative especially when it comes to nails. The brand had sets of fake nails in various designs ready for the show which was themed after Hollywood horror films like Shining and Psycho. The nails ranged from long angled in black and red rhinestones to white grenade shell to Jack Nicholson’s and Janet Leigh’s characters from the aforementioned films.

Libertine went for golden nails embellished with colorful rhinestones while Houghton and Ruffian created textured nails by applying fabric over the painted tips.

Speaking of embellished nails at Kate Spade nails were painted black and pink and decorated with small metallic studs. At Emerson the nails were designed in a monochrome pattern while at White the nails were decorated with golden dots.

Moon manicures were spotted at Rachel Roy, Oscar de la Renta and the inverted moon-mani was seen at Mara Hoffman. Rodarte went with a silver French manicure on nude nails while Tracy Reese went for a turquoiuse manicure outlined with metallic polish.

At Prabal Gurung nails were painted Prabal Gurung for Sally Hansen in Loden Green and decorated with a triangle in Coat of Arms from the same Prabal Gurung for Sally Hansen line which by the way launches in September.


The nails at Creatures of the Wind were designed in different colors with colorful spiral details while the manicures at Rebeca Minkoff were painted in blues and silver to create a special effect.

Solid colors on the nails were predominantly red, dark red and black as seen at Alice+Olivia, Badgley Mischka, Reem Acra, Jil Stuart Yigal Azrouel and others.

Textured nails were seen at Nickolas K and Noon by Noor but at Kaelen and Karen Walker the textures differed only slightly as at Kaelen the black manicure was done in French mani style with matte base and glossy tips. See more manicures from New York Fashion Week Fall 2023 below.
