Top 3 Spring Nail Trends

With spring just around the corner, we've rounded up three nail trends that we predict will be big news in the coming months!

The Bold and The Beautiful

Take a walk on the bright side with bold, electric nail polish shades. To super-charge your colour, apply a coat of white nail polish first.

Sweet as Candy

Tap into the season's obsession with sweet sorbet hues by wearing them on your nails! Cooler pastels like pale blue and green are flattering for fair skin, while shades with warm undertones, such as yellow and peachy-pink, are best for medium to olive skin tone.

Our favourite pastel polishes are Kitty (pistachio green), Peaches (shell pink), Maggie (lilac) and Kate (sky blue)

Shape Shifter

While square-shaped nails have dominated for so long, this season it's all about  a classic rounded profile. Spotted on the runway at the likes of Derek Lam, this almost almond shape is ultra-flattering and will elongate your fingers.

The Emily Green Colour Theory

For someone who has a way with colour, Emily Green has the perfect surname! Known for her cheery necklaces and knitted scarves, Emily is a designer who explores colour, chaotic geometric shapes and soft, organic forms.

To colour your day happy, just pop on one of her pieces - it's the only way we're making it through a grey, Melbourne winter!
