The best party nails #Truly Own The Night

Beauty, What's HOT

No party outfit is complete without a set of gorgeously manicured nails. In fact, the softer shapes, bright colours and head-turning patterns that are hot this summer are great for everyday wear. Here’s a look at some of the top nail trends this summer.

GET IN SHAPE

This season it’s all about softer, rounder and more natural shapes. Arguably the shape for summer is the ballerina, or coffin shape, because the shape reminds of a ballerina slipper or coffin – slightly tapered with round edges. The flattering squoval, or square oval, is another hot shape with its square edges and rounded corners. Good news for those who want elegant nails with minimal maintenance, short, square, and natural nails are also at the top of the summer’s trend list.

ADD SOME COLOUR

The ‘90s comeback is great news for colour, and this summer’s colour favourites range from bight neons to nudes, pastels and classic metallics.

Neons

Celebrate this summer with bright neon hues, from highlighter yellows, greens, pinks and oranges, to bright blues, and bright apple red. For maximum day-glo shine, remember to give your nails a white undercoat before applying the neon radness.

Pastels

Soft pastels, glossy or matt, balance out the in-your-face brightness of those neon colours and adds some chic colour to your look. Ocean foam blue, pineapple yellow, soft orange, and ice-cream pinks, and are favourites.

Nudes

For a more natural looking nails, classic nudes like toned down peach, beige, and light terracotta, especially for shorter nails. Choose the colour the will blend in with your skin tone for that natural, yet not naked, look.

CREATIVE FREEDOM

This summer fine lines, geometric shapes, dots, fruit, textured glitter, and negative space are all the rage.

Stripes, shapes & negative space

Fine lines, chevrons, blocks, triangles, zig-zags, and everything in between. Pairing these with the use of negative space is a great way to get a colourful, yet more understated look.

Cute French tips. A fresh take on traditional tips include funky designs, cool colours and playful patterns. Fine lines and even adding colour underneath instead of above the tips, are other elegant options.

Dots. Get creative with dots for a playful, yet elegant look. Whether it’s a single dot, polka dots, or mixed with shapes, you gotta get dotty this summer.
