Trends: Summer Nail Colour

As winter wanes, be daring and add some heat to your nails this summer. Freshly-lacquered nails, in red shades from berry to deep crimson or gold to green, can instantly add the right amount of pop to your ensemble. Keep them maintained and chip-free to achieve utmost sophistication.


Brights are a must-have for this season. Bold, fresh colour and smooth coverage make OPI's new Texas Lone Star Collection the ideal choice.

OPI Texas Lone Star Collection in Guy Meets Galveston, $19.95

My Personal Favourite:
OPI Texas Lone Star Collection in Do You Think I'm Tex-Y, $19.95


Think opaque shades of Tiffany & Co. blue, mint green and the dainty and delicate peach and pink. For a look that showcases femininity, pastels are perfect.

ORLY Manicure Miniatures in Lollipop, $7.95

Bloom Nail Polish in Kitty, $19.95


Rich and traditional nail colour will do wonders to add contrast to dull hues. Try sharp shades of red, maroon and dark purple for a truly timeless and sexy addition to your look.

Chanel Le Vernis in Dragon, $39

OPI La Collection de France in Bastille My Heart, $19.95


Toned down natural shades of cream, blush, mushroom and nude are cropping up everywhere in the fashion world from shoes and underwear to dresses and nail varnish. This is a great choice for those who prefer sheer, low-maintenance nail colour as it’s far easier to keep up with its less-visible chips and crack.

OPI Beyond Chic in Makes Men Blush, $19.95

Manicare French Pink, $13.50


Add a new dimension to your look with foil nails which famously featured in Alexander McQueen’s SS 11 show thanks to UK nail artist Marian Newman. By simply pressing the strips onto the nail and filing to fit, these metallic pieces will create texture that will last up to two weeks.

Blixz Liquid Gold, $17.50
