For a fashion girl, a pristine manicure adds just as much impact to an outfit as any other accessory—be it a simple choker, embellished earrings, or a set of bangles. And like any other accessory, it too follows certain trends with the passing seasons.
Now that the heat of summer is finally sinking in, it’s time to trade the holiday’s iridescent, metallic, and lustrous lacquer for something equally bold and vibrant, but a lot more colorful.
We’ve taken cues from our favorite local celebs for the latest set of coats you’d want to get your hands on—literally!
Party in Pink
This neon hue is enough to make you a showstopper in any outfit that you don. Its bright and vivid color is perfect for the season’s upcoming pool parties and summer festivals.
This stark yellow is bound to have you shining brighter than the sun. What better way to celebrate summer than with this perky shade?
A few months back, Pantone officially declared Serenity and Rose Quartz as 2016’s most prominent colors in fashion. Now we can feel the chill of summer take full-effect with this cool blue and tranquil pink.
One of the best things about summer is that you can finally enlist the help of all the bright hues in your polish arsenal. This teal shade is perfect for those itching for a pop of color that isn’t too loud.
The '90s fashion trend is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only has it graced our ensembles once again with halter necklines and ribbed dresses, the popular taupe shade is its own statement piece. For an even trendier look, color coordinate your nails with your lippie!
While the perpetually sold-out Ruby Woo lipstick has proven it is indeed an all-around classic, we recommend a different take on the blazing red for this summer. Try opting for warmer tones with scarlet and burgundy hints.
One of the key takeaways from China Rich Girlfriend (every fashion girl’s favorite novel) is that nude nails or monochromatic shades of beige perfect the visage of class. If you’re not ready for a brazen polish, the classic nude is always a good option.
