With summer just heating up, our nails are ready to do the talking. The hottest shades are in and this is what we we’ll be wearing over the next few months! Don’t forget, we’re all about the healthy alternative, so all of the polishes we mention are cruelty free, vegan and at least 5-free. You’re welcome and don’t forget to book in your summer mani with us!


Semi-sheers are IN, and it’s all about SHINE! Semi-sheer nails shades along with natural beauty looks are predicted to be popular all summer 17/18, as it’s all about enhancing natural beauty. Sheer polishes compliment every skin tone and are well suited to work environments that don’t allow bright colours. Enhance your beautiful natural nails with a subtle tint, go semi-sheer! 

Check out the beautiful range by Gloss & Co, our favourites are Bare it All & Dreams! Dreams is the same shade worn by Meghan Markle in her engagement announcement pictures!


The highlighter trend has well and truly penetrated the beauty market, and nails are no exception! We definitely believe that your hands and feet shouldn’t be left out of the glow-up! Paint Nail Lacquer's Galactic Rose (made in collaboration with Purely Polished) is a gorgeous formula that shines bright like glam spaceship! Staying on trend with rose gold, If you’re looking for a subtle glow, try Sol by Sienna Byron Bay, or if you want the full glitz and glam of glitter try Kester Black’s Dasher which is a glitter rose gold perfect for Christmas.


Does anything say summer quite like a daring manicure? Fashion is having a nostalgic 60's moment with the resurgence of mustard, but with a twist - we're going neon! The best mustard yellow from Faby, Torna a Sorrento, is an almost fluro mustard shade that we're going to be wearing all summer long! Bubblegum Bang is a beautiful neon pink by I Scream Nails and Paper Sky by Faby is a favourite blue of the moment. If fluro is not for you, but you're still feeling the 60's vibe, try Sienna Byron Bay’s Muse.


As always, white polish comes back for summer, and with good reason- it looks great on everyone! Peaches are also back in full force, and are a refreshing option for those who usually opt for nude. Limed White by Paint Nail Lacquer and Optical White by Faby are our go to white polish, and the peaches to try are ‘In the Buff’ and ‘Impeachment’ by Kester Black.
