While there’s only a few months mere weeks left until we whip off our shirts and run towards the sound of the ocean screaming “summmmmer!”, international fashion shows are already dictating beauty trends for spring/summer 2018. Luckily, living in the southern hemisphere means we’ll get to trial them first. So here’s some mani-inducing inspiration you’ll be wearing this holiday season for your viewing pleasure.
There’s no better time than summer to embrace bold nail polish hues and trendy nail art. And with all the times you’ll be asked to see your engagement ring—at your engagement party, bridal shower, and yes, even at your wedding—you’ll want to keep your nails in tip-top shape. Luckily, there’s a bevy of new nail polish shades to work with.
Even if you’re not yet a bride-to-be, the latest colors are also a great excuse to maintain a flawless manicure all season long in case of a proposal, because we all know a ring selfie is one of the first things you’ll do after calling family and friends. Either way, it’s time to give the nude manicure a rest and kick off summer by adding a pop of color with your next mani-pedi.
Nail art has reached new levels of creativity this year and as much as we love detailed nail art, there is nothing quite like a simple fresh slick of colour. Luckily for us, with a new season comes many new nail polish collections to spend our money on! The colours are eclectic shades of the rainbow with shade names that never disappoint. This Summer we’re all about the tan-enhancing neons, ocean shades, and Summer-refreshed chromes. Whether you’re into power neons or delicate neutral sparkles, you’ll find your shade of the season here.
