But, just as we were putting the nail in this coffin (pun intended), we got thrown for a loop: Intricate manis started popping up on spring '15 runway shows at New York Fashion Week. As the week progresses, we can already see that elaborate nails haven't died — they were just in hibernation. And, now that they're back, they're chicer and classier than ever.
Ahead, we've rounded up some of our favorite creative nail looks from Fashion Week: They show a more subdued, minimalist take on the trend (watch for negative space, linear designs, and watercolor-like swirls come 2015). You'll want to get these on your paws sooner rather than later. This is one comeback we're more than excited for.
