The warmer months seem tantalisingly close and we’re raring to put on our summer dresses and paint our nails in the hottest new shades under that longed-for sun. If you want to get your talons sunshine-ready, here are the best new shades on offer for Spring/Summer 2015.
As fresh as a daisy and cool as ice cream, white is our favourite of the shades on display at this season’s catwalk shows. A bolder take on the nude trend, white looks great on nails of all lengths and sizes and can look both pretty as a picture teamed with a springtime tea dress or uber sophisticated for a hot summer night out. For the chicest take on the look, try using a matte top coat like this one from OPI.
If white is too bold for you, the trend for nude polish is still going strong. If you have warm skin tones, opt for a true nude like this one from Morgan Taylor while warmer-skinned ladies might want to go for pinker shades like OPI’s pretty Chillin Like A Villain.
There’s no better way to dress for the sun than to dress like it and this season’s hottest fashion shows all sent their models out with eye-catching tangerine nails. A bright and beautiful blend of red and orange, Electric Orange by CND is a perfect example of this trendy shade.
Spring doesn’t have to be about pretty nails. We love these sophisticated metallic polishes from Gellux in gold and silver. Perfectly suited to a summer tan, these sexy shades were a huge favourite on the Spring/Summer catwalks.
If you find layering up lacquers a little too time consuming, you’ll love this season’s trend for natural nails. Characterised by a slick of clear or translucent pink polish, the natural nail is more pretty and simple than completely undone. Try OPI’s Bubble Bath for the perfect fuss-free manicure.
