Nailed It – How to wear the season’s four must-have nail trends

The warmer weather is here and that means we’re turning our attention to every aspect of our Spring/Summer looks…head to toe, nothing goes un-coordinated, so let’s take a look at how you can go from dull, drab digits to date night (or mate night) ready nails with these trends.

Distressed – the perfectly imperfect manicure.

This is perfect for those of us who like a pop of colour but we’re either too active, or too lazy to maintain a flawless finish on our polish! The distressed trend favours chips, scuffs and blank space. Imperfect mani fans unite!

And don’t spend a moment worrying about what people might think, if it’s good enough to feature on the catwalk for Nicholas Kirkwood, then it’s good enough for us. (Image:


Are you one of those people (like us) that sit in the salon in a blind panic, overwhelmed by all the pretty and struggle to make a call on your next colour palette? Fear no more. The two-tone trend is here to stay. We love a nude and a neon, but anything goes. What about a french style but using two colours instead of the traditional white and pink? The nail gods have spoken and you have free reign.

Barely there

The only kind of nudes we want to be sent are these must-see nails. Sometimes you just want something simply that goes with everything and nude palettes are here to save the day. Don’t make the mistake of thinking there’s no fun to be had with lighter tones; combine a couple, consider a slightly different colour for each nail or add some gold foil – where theres nude there’s options!


Here to stay and forever loved, nothing makes us feel as glam as a metallic hit. Our nails are the perfect place to play with this because it’s not overpowering and brings a little extra-ness to your favourite shades. There’s a lot to be said for the classics: silver, gold, bronze and those dreamy rose hues. Give it a try.
