Are you still hiding your tootsies in closed toe shoes? Paralyzed by polish FOMO? Well, worry no more, we here at SLH are here to get you inspired with the hottest trends in season.
First, let’s talk shape. The killer stiletto dagger nails so popular just a few months ago are getting chopped and rounded out. Almond and oval are the theme for summer. Elegant and practical, these shapes can allow for the polish to take center stage.
Now in terms of what to put on those darling digits, there’s quite a bit to choose from, so let’s run the options.
#1 Red rules! – Usually reserved for cooler times of the year, red is still going strong for summer. Popular colors include Watermelon, Electric oranges and even gothic burgundy shades. Essie has a great one, named perfectly enough – Watermelon! CND Vinylux has lots of cool and spicy orange shades. For burgundy, think homage to gothic and update it by keeping the look super glossy. Christian Louboutin’s The Noirs is spot on, but if you’re more budget conscious check out Formula X Blazing.
#2 Think Pink – Speaking of Formula X, we here are super obsessed over their color Ladylove. It hits that perfect note of cotton candy meets sophistication that will look just as good on your mani as your pedi. Really looking to get your saccharine on? CND Shellac in Cake Pop is just what your sweet tooth ordered. Other honorable mentions include Pretty Vulgar Pinkies Up, Essie Excuse Me Sur and OPI It’s a Girl.
