The nails at Gucci Cruise are not for the faint of heart

Alessandro Michele's Gucci designs are always a feast for the eyes. The clash of patterns,colors, and textures—from head-to-toe—could be stared at for hours. At his latest Gucci resort 2018 show in Florence, no detail was left unadorned. Noteven the models' fingernails. Some models had their fingers dipped in a black ink from their fingertips to their knuckles. Then the nails were topped with spectacular rings and ornate hand jewelry that rivaled any nail art we have ever seen – without the commitment. Of course, dipped ink nails are not exactly wearable off the runway unless you are cosplaying a zombie. But let the statement manicure at Gucci inspire a more artful approach to your next nail art work. Go for an all-black manicure. Top it with some pearls. Then don't be afraid to pile on the costume jewelry. If the Gucci resort show taught us anything, it is that more-is-more approach to your hands and nails isdefinitely in for 2018.
