New York Fashion Week kicked off on 11 February, bringing with it an array of standout and glamorous fashion, makeup, hair and of course, nail looks. We’ve rounded up some of the best (and boldest) manicures from the autumn/winter 2022 runway below.


Self-titled nail sculptor, Juan Alvear, served up these bedazzled extreme length nail enhancements in baby pink and lilac for the Christian Cowan show.


For the Brandon Maxwell show, editorial manicurist Jin Soon Choi painted the designer’s grandmother’s initials on each model’s nails – a symbol of carrying her with them as they walked the runway.


OPI were in charge of the nails for the Christian Siriano runway, taking their inspiration from hit television show, Euphoria. Check out our gallery of Euphoria-inspired nails here.


11 Honoré’s show proved that a simple glossy black mani is a timelessly stylish look.


Fashion and celebrity manicurist, Dawn Sterling, embraced maximalism with Swarovski crystal nail caps and green sculptural enhancements for the Shayne Oliver show.


Models for LaQuan Smith’s show embodied glamour, sporting chic bold red manis down the runway.

White nails are trending right now – just take a look at this white square-shaped mani for the Puppets and Puppets show.


For the Alice + Olivia show, nail stylist to the stars, Gina Edwards, used Kiss products to embellish glossy black nails with different sized crystals.


Dark metallic manis dominated the Bronx & Banco runway, matching the brand’s glitzy outfit choices.


Metallic themes could also be found in Victor Glemaud’s show, with Dawn Sterling creating enchanting reflective gold sets for the models.

New York salon, 10 Piece Nails, created pastel nail looks featuring detailed tip designs for the Kim Shui show.
