Trend: Petal Pastels
If you’re looking for colors a little less in your face, you are in luck because creamy pastels and classic nudes have also been having a major moment both on and off the runway this summer. Be on the lookout for such pretty pastel hues as milky lemon, pearlescent linen, sheer pink, pale lavender, peachy cream, and sage green. Nude nail polish is being considered the manicure world’s next greatest hit after ballerina pink and fire-engine red due to its versatility. True nude nails not only elongate your fingers, but look great on manicures of all shapes and lengths as well. Use thin, even strokes and layer a high-gloss top coat over these more opaque formulas to keep them from looking chalky. Then pair these pastels with tougher elements (i.e. an all-black outfit or studded accessories) to give any ensemble a more feminine twist.
