Runway beauty is about more than hair and makeup — it's a trifecta that includes nails. Exaggerated eyeliner, acid neon colors and floral headpieces may have grabbed our attention during the Spring 2019 shows, but not even all the drama happening above the neck could distract us from the manicures since there were many gorgeous looks at the shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris to draw inspiration from.

Nail art is always a runway staple and it's often where manicurists show just how imaginative they can be. At this round of shows, there were labor-intensive, jaw-dropping designs that are sure to earn spots in the manicure hall of fame.

It seems the seasons have done a flip-flop with pastels and electric shades currently trending for fall. If you're wondering where all the cheer has gone, select shows made up for the somber tones with romantic pink and energizing yellow manicures.
