NPD’s Must-Have Spring & Summer Nail Polish Collections For 2018
There’s nothing quite like the energy and excitement of the seasonal transition from late spring to early summer. It’s a time to shed layers, turn our faces to the sun and make time for the most important things in our life – our tips & toes. As spring turns to summer and temperatures start to rise, you’re probably itching to make your nails reflect the changing seasons – we do it with our wardrobes, so why not our manicure and pedicure too? We insist that our spring essentials are a perfect combination of light and sweet pastels. And our summer must-haves are easy to apply, have unbeatable staying power, are 100% on-trend & that they work well with almost every getaway!
Allow us to find that perfect polish to complement sandy shores and your recent sandal splurge.
As bright & bold colours start to come back into trend, there’s no better time to add some lighter & more playful colours to your nails. Whether you’re making an appointment to your go-to nail technician or planning to to do it all by yourself, you still need an assortment of polishes to play with. Although nail trends by the seasons are pretty predictable, the outdoor markets reopening, penciling in getaways to warmer weather and the overall boost in mood will never get old – will it?
Whether or not your feet are ready, sandal weather is imminent. And much like the cute little groundhog that signals the changing season, your toesies are about to emerge from their sock hovels to celebrate warmer temperatures. Without further ado it’s time to start splashing lots of vibrant hues into your nail wardrobe, from the hottest nail polish collections of the year for spring and summer.
Because I mean, is there really anything better than the feeling of a fresh manicure or pedicure? We didn’t think so!
