What's next for your nails? Straight off the spring/summer 2017 runways, here's a rundown of the best nail colours and must-have nail art trends which you can start wearing right now...
Are you like us and starting to reach serious boredom levels with all your winter stuff? And even more so now that summer fashions are all over the shops already? But it’s still the teeniest tiniest bit too cool to make that leap into your summer sandals?
The best thing about nails is that they know no season. They are a fun way to try out new trends - even when you are still in last season’s clothes. So what’s stopping you from planning your summer manicures right now (not us!)? Unleash your inner artist and try a new look each week. Bye-bye boredom.
After the deeper hues of our winter nails, we are so ready to try the major pops of colour which were all over the runways this season. Bold shade statements have got to be the biggest news - whether they be intense or pastel hues; straight-up solids or colour blocked. The softest lilacs, fun raspberry, bold blues, hints of yellow or zesty tangerine - the brights have never looked so chic...
But if you hanker after something a little less out there, the neutrals are still huge - whether they be soft pinks, pretty peaches or a light wash of nude over your nails. Making a big appearance this summer is white - often paired with a graphic touch of black (a rising trend), a pop of colour (think pastels) or hints of crimson. And the metals have gone all modern with a subtle mixing of different hues and glitter embellished cuticles.
French tips will never go out of style - but with this year's interesting twists, they've become so much more stylish and sophisticated. And for those who are more adventurous and love a little bit of art, try out the modern geometric trend where every nail is individual - but oh so classy. After all, who wants to be boring?
Scroll through for some serious manicure inspo that'll take you well into summer and beyond...
