If you haven’t noticed the seventies trend creeping back into the high street then, well, where have you been? Every fashionista worth her salt knows that the age of flares and shearling is very much back in fashion. If you’ve already filled your AW15 wardrobe with all the corduroy, brown and fringing you can, don’t worry: this versatile trend is just as far out on nails. Check out the latest seventies manis that we’re totally digging.
This season’s seventies trend calls more on the glamourous side of the decade than on its hippie vibes, and back then nothing was more glamourous than a slinky metallic dress. Replicate the look on your talons with the gorgeous OPI With a Nice Finn-ish nail polish. The metallic sheen is the perfect accompaniment to any seventies ensemble while the burnished bronze colour is ideal for autumn.
If there was any era you could have worn denim nails, it was the seventies. From high-fashion flares to denim waistcoats, this was the daytime material of the era. If you don’t fancy donning denim every day, wear it on your nails instead with this delicious Denim Du Jour nail polish from Morgan Taylor.
The one defining thing about fashion’s new favourite decade was that it was decidedly brown. From fashion to furniture, shades of tan were everywhere. While you might not fancy redecorating your bathroom in hazel, the shade is perfect for AW15 nails as it’s both neutral and sophisticated. OPI’s Ice-Bergers and Fries nail polish is the perfect blend of cocoa-inspired hues and seventies-style shades as well as being ideal for autumn. After all, what’s more autumnal than a cosy cup of hot chocolate?
If you’re a fan of more complicated nail art, there’s only one pattern to go for this season. Paisley was everywhere in the seventies, from ties to wallpaper, and it’s surprisingly not that difficult to achieve on nails. Start with a classic seventies burnished orange shade like OPI Are We There Yet, then draw on your paisley pattern in a mix of white nail polish and a deep brown like OPI Scores A Goal.
