When the weather heats up, it’s time to opt for soft, pretty shades on our nails and to get rid of the dark vampy colours we’ve been wearing in colder weather.
Summer shades are fun and fresh and range from gentle pastels to bright neon, citrus orange, girlish pinks, light blues and everything in between. If you still have a soft spot for deeper reds and grey colours, try and opt for lighter shades that you might usually wear. Also, as the summer approaches, don’t forget about your feet, paint those nails too and get them out in sandals.
The summer season is all about bright and vibrant colours. Here we provide a brief breakdown of some shades to consider as your summer signature shade!
