Top Winter Shades for the Season

It’s cold (and mostly gloomy) outside which means now’s a better time than ever to treat yourself with a manicure or pedicure! 

There are many signature nail colours which we all opt for at this time of year, but we could always do with some fresh inspiration! 

From icy shades of blue, to deep reds and neutrals, take a look below at the top winter nail colours that we guarantee will be most popular this season! 

1. Frosted Blue

It’s always good to inject a pop of colour into your life during the colder months, and what a perfect way to do it with a frosty blue tone! 

This is a gorgeous shade which can look amazing paired with silver or gold accents, or even with your favourite knit.

2. Metallic Gold & Silver

Metallic tones are similar to neutrals and can really compliment any outfit - especially when they’re in a gold or silver shade! 

This is the ideal colour for wearing for a night out with the girls!

3. Maroon (aka your favourite glass of red)

Think about your favourite glass of red wine, and imagine it being the shade of your nails! Maroon or red wine coloured nails are absolutely IN this season. 

Pair alongside a gorgeous jewelled ring and a glass of wine and you’re sorted!

4. Sophisticated Black

If you tend to wear a lot of black throughout winter, it makes sense to have your nails match too! 

Black nail shades can instantly give you an edgy look, and is an easy colour to opt for when you’re struggling to decide what to pick.

5. Nice & Neutral

You’ll often see a lot of neutral nail tones worn throughout this time of year, as it’s a simple and nice way to give your nails coverage and colour, without going OTT. 

If you want to add a touch of sparkle, you could always paint one nail on each finger a sparkly or metallic shade too! 

6. Emerald Green

Dark/emerald greens are all the rage this season - and trust us when we say we can see this shade being a trend for quite some time.

Don’t you agree that this colour is luxuriously smooth and eye catching?

We want your spray tan to last and look natural for as long as possible. 

Here are some tips on how you can prepare your skin beforehand, and maintain that natural glow afterwards. 

 
Spray Tan Preparation

Preparing your skin is key before any spray tan treatment, as it’s the work you do beforehand, that will ensure your spray tan lasts.  

  • Shave no less than 24 hours before your appointment. Shaving is a form of exfoliation, and will rid of all your dry skin before you are sprayed. If you do shave after this time window, the self-tan will settle into your newly opened hair follicles and cause a pitted dark spot effect.

  •  Exfoliate your entire body 24-48 hours before to ensure that you have removed all the dead skin cells. 

  •  Don’t apply any body lotions or perfumes before your appointment, as these can interfere with the spray tan developments.

  • Wear loose clothing after your treatment. 

  • As spray tans develop into their full colour in 12-24 hours, we also suggest booking your appointment at for least 48 hours before you want your tan to be at it’s best (i.e a couple of days before an event).

Spray Tan Aftercare

We want your spray tan to last the distance, so here are a few things you should keep in mind after your appointment. 

  • Take a cold shower after treatment - however refrain from using soap or scrubbing. 

  • Pat yourself dry after each shower, and do not rub. 

  • If you can, avoid excessive sweating or high intensity exercise.

  • A few days after your treatment, we suggest using a Ph balanced body wash. 

  • Daily moisturising is super important, and is key to keeping your tan intact and prolong it. Doing this before bed is best, as your pores open up more allowing more hydration into the skin.
