Manicure trends for this season evoke the loveliest of flower-filled gardens, with pretty pinks and cool pastels the pick of the crop.

Sky blues

Sitting somewhere between a sapphire and turquoise, there are many deep blue hues just waiting to grace your digits. That’s the colour I went for.

Petal pinks

From fuchsias to Barbie-inspired hues, the beauty world’s new pinks are getting us in the mood to move away from our go-to nudes and reds. Also try the glossy pinks as it suits all skin tones.  

Fresh mints

Working well with neutral and pastel colour palettes, mint green nail polishes are here to stay. To get the best results, check nails are oil free before you apply your basecoat and make sure the nail polish is very thinly applied.
