The hottest nail trends from Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2015

Hayley Elsaesser

“Hayley’s collection is called Midnight Cowboy. So it’s got a bit of a spaghetti western mixed with 70s glam mixed with Uma Thurman from Kill Bill. Those were her muses. She couldn’t decide between the colour combination. So some of the models will be orange and teal, and some of the models will be pink and cobalt. The design pattern reads like a combination between animal and camo print. This is achieved literally with the brush in the bottle. You don’t need any specific nail art brush, we’re literally just polishing – we’re making all of the polish just at the end of the brush, and just touching it and creating clouds and shapes on the nails. The colours used are Meet Me At The Sunset and the blue is Naughty Nautical.”—Rita Remark, Lead Nail Artist for Essie Canada READ MORE: Best street style from Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2015

Melissa Nepton

“We wanted a small design element to the nail that wasn’t overpowering. This season, nail art is all about the details—it’s like a gesture or a wink. This look is very easy to achieve. After applying your base colour, you press the brush (in a new colour) against the nail and sway it outwards. You just curve the brush as you brush it down the length of the nail.”—Rita Remark, Lead Nail Artist for Essie Canada READ MORE: Where to fix chipped nail polish between shows at Toronto Fashion Week

Mackage

"The collection is inspired by 70s glam which I’m sure you’ll be hearing a lot about this week. There’s a lot of 70s influence for fall/winter. And the chevron was actually created in the 70s. So this is a very 70s manicure even though it’s something you may have seen a lot of in the recent years. We’re doing Berry Naughty, which is a deep burgundy/red which I think is a trend colour for fall/winter. So a little bit of negative space, an empty chevron moon. I’m calling this a deep V."—Rita Remark, Lead Nail Artist for Essie Canada READ MORE: The best nails from New York Fashion Week Fall 2015

Pink Tartan

“This nail had to be androgynous—she (Kimberly Newport-Mimran) didn’t want it to be feminine. The Pink Tartan girl is very strong and independent. So the polish itself is very clean. So we’re just doing one coat of Allure, and one Mad About You and topcoat. So the nails just look very tidy. Allure is a sheer eggshell white so it just brightens the nail slightly. Each pinky nail we’re doing a tattoo. And we achieved this by using licorice, which is our jet black. With a striping brush, we drew the symbol of Goddess on one pinky and God on the other because there was a really spiritual theme to the collection and we wanted to carry that onto the nails."—Rita Remark, Lead Nail Artist for Essie Canada READ MORE: Our top 10 looks from Pink Tartan at Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2015

Mikhael Kale

“For a nail that was inspired by ‘Futurism’, we did two coats of Essie Nail Polish in Sand Tropez and then we layered it with a water colouring effect. We achieved this dipping an took acrylic oval art brush into acetone and then dip it into the white, when you press it lightly over the nail it just blooms slightly, giving this a really beautiful chiffon or stone finish. Don't overwork it though—that might give you a bald patch on the nail. But if that happens, just cover it with a top coat, which will blend it in.”—Rita Remark, Lead Nail Artist for Essie Canada READ MORE: Why we're obsessed with Canadian designer Mikhael Kale

Mikael D

"Mikael wanted a very crisp, clean nail. He didn’t want sheer. I used two coats of Topless and Barefoot, and I brightened it slightly by applying Vanity Fairest on top. This is a very pretty nude because it’s a very sheer soft pink with a hint of small silver mica. It just makes them gleam a little bit. His collection is very inspired by Asian culture with a lot of cutouts, a lot of action happening on across the models bodies. So I agreed with him, we wanted to do something that didn’t overpower it but made sure the girls looked clean."—Rita Remark, Lead Nail Artist for Essie Canada READ MORE: How to fix damaged nails

Soia & Kyo

"We are doing two coats of Chinchilly, then with a sponge, we’re doing a stamping technique where we polish both of the shades on the sponge and then we press it into the nail and it creates that really beautiful smoky gradient. That’s what I love about this. When you think of an ombre manicure you think of bright pastels or sunset, so what I liked about this one is it just looks like the tips of her fingers were smoked. It’s taking that technique and rethinking it and making it something a little bit more sophisticated. We chose two colours because they couldn’t decide between two different greys, and I said like, I can give you both.”—Rita Remark, Lead Nail Artist for Essie Canada READ MORE: Fix your nails in a weekend
