A SUMMER NAIL AFFAIR; IT’S ALL ABOUT COLOUR
Switch up your nail polish style this summer with the following tips.
Black and white may have made a strong statement earlier this year for clothing and nails but have no fear, bold bright colors are not extinct. Switch up your nail polish style this summer, try the brilliant coral, pastel pink, emerald green and orange polishes aplenty, serving as the perfect pop of color on fingers, toes, or, even better, both.
- RETRO RED NAILS
There’s been a return to red, the classic nail shade that oozes glamour and ladylike luxury – especially when twinned with an infusion of pink and a wet looking finish.
Medium and darker skin tones can handle glowing neon orange, without looking washed out, and slightly less intense versions beautifully complement fairer tones.
· VIBRANT BLUE
Basic navy and royal are nice—but who wants to settle for nice when electric is just around the corner. Look fordeep cobalt with a high-shine finish, or go for something even more unexpected, opt for a polish with a chrome or metallic finish.
Pastels are all the rage now in nail polish. Pastel pink is always in style and is the perfect girly nail color.
- BERRY NAILS
Being a key color for beauty this season, berry shades and wine stains are big for lips and tips. Dark berry nails and a creamy berry color are in this season.
Neon shades are very much in with, colors like black, white and red are always in fashion.
- PARTIAL TO NEUTRALS:
Gray is the new nude; give your nails the loving they deserve with the vibrant range of gray hues. For lighter nude tones, you can go for a milky light pink or beige. For drama, try a shimmering oxblood, balanced of course, by a lined or a smoky lid.
Pale shades are also in fashion this year. For the girls who love the neat and subtle look, just paint your nails in a milky white shade or cotton candy pink shade and you are good to go.
