Over the top is the name of the game for those just as color obsessed as we are. This season, nails are rocking flirty pastels and textures.
As temperatures climb, colors also get hotter! It’s Summer – which calls for some much needed fun in the sun and a pop of color! Vibrant colors engulf us as flowers begin to bloom. It’s marvelous how each individual color can convey its own message. Colors allow us to express who we are, with each gorgeous shades turning your nails into a window to your personality. Mani-trends are moving more toward stripes, neons, textures, and subdued pastels this season, sometimes with roughed up texture rather than sleek gloss.
If you’re crazy for pastels, “Re fresh Mint” from China Glaze, the perfect color to cool off your look. “Sittin’ pretty” by Essie, is a peppy pastel purple for an even brighter and girlier look on trend with this year’s Pantone’s radiant orchid. while “I’m addicted” is a neon light blue from their latest collection. For those days when you just want to relax by the pool, China Glaze’s “If in Doubt, Surf it out” complements blue skies with a mellow orange crème.
Something more after-hours spontaneous calls for Seche’s “Long Weekend” – a fun’n’flirty bubblegum pink in Seche’s signature rich, saturated hues. Morgan Taylor released their Casual Cool Collection this Spring season – inspired by the sporty decade of the 1990’s. It’s fresh, wearable, and undeniably trendy. Our favorites include: “New Kicks on the Block” – a stylish pastel purple/pink – and a cool “Varsity Jacket Blues”. They’re chic, but still add the perfect pop of pastels and neons. If you can’t wait to dip your nails into something more ‘caliente’, check out OPI’s Brazil collection or their recently released MLB collection with scorchers like a shimmery red “Love Athletes in Cleats” or a playful “Orange You Going to the Game?” Both colors will sizzle things up for sure!
