It’s official. Now that Spring is here to stay, there’s no more hiding your hands in gloves and feet in boots. With sandal weather on the horizon, pedicures – and while you’re relaxing in that chair, manicures – are a fashion must. Are you one of those who hems and haws at the colours on the shelf and makes the rest of us wait? There’s no doubt about it. Which polish to choose is a serious decision. After all, your pick will likely be on display for at least a week straight and probably even longer.
So let us take the guesswork out of your hands (and feet) for you by handing over the latest, greatest nail trends for spring.
The idea is to go subtle with the sheer nails trend or leap out of your box with pops of colour. Think playful nudes, brights, nail art and glitter. If you could have one, which one would you choose? Or better yet, why not try them all?
