Spring is just around the corner, and for the new season ahead, you may be looking to update your beauty stash. Nails are one of the easiest ways to stay on-trend and keep your look fresh – all it takes is a splash of polish to nod to the latest colours. You can also be a bit more daring with your nails, as even the boldest shades don’t look ‘too much’.
CEO and founder of Nails Inc, Thea Green, favours Gen Z Yellow as one to watch for SS19 – a bright, golden hue that sings of sunny days ahead. Another colour to look out for is 2019’s Pantone Colour of the Year, coral. From light peach tones to zesty brights, Thea encourages us to interpret this as we wish, but she’s especially obsessed with peach: “that’s exactly what I’ll be wearing as soon as spring hits,” she says, adding that “peach is splashed across the catwalk this season, along with nudes and soft pinks.”
However you decide to work the latest SS19 nail trends, Thea adds that nailcare should always be the priority. She suggests investing in a quality nail oil to strengthen your nails from the cuticle upwards and a base coat to wear underneath your chosen shade, so when the changeable spring weather hits, your nails will be ready, whatever it brings.
With these trends in mind, we’ve chosen our favourite nail collections that will have you covered this spring, from the hottest shades of the season to your staple nailcare.
Channel designer runway looks with this Kiss My Peach Duo from Nails Inc, which offers you a pale and bold shade to mix and match as you please. With designers like Temperley, Stella McCartney and Gucci splashing their model's nails with peachy shades like this for SS19, you'll be in good company.
The array of shades in this OPI Brights set is just the thing if you want some variety this spring. The covetable Gen-Z Yellow shade stands out as the hero in this collection, but its mix of brights and pastels makes this the best investment for your nail wardrobe this season.
If you're looking for a fresh, juicy bright to re-set your spring beauty look, the Passionfruit Collection from Nails Inc is the one. Featuring an on-trend zesty coral, these shades can be worn alone to make your look pop or contrasted to create nail art that nods to the coral trend this season.
Soft pinks are another hit for the upcoming season, so for something more pared back, look no further than this Nails Inc collection. They're effortlessly pretty, but the slate grey shade puts a stylish twist on a classic - use it as an accent nail, or get creative with negative space nail art.
Nailcare never goes out of style, and this treatment collection from OPI has you covered. It comes with an oil to keep your cuticles quenched and two Nail Envy shades that can be worn alone or under your chosen colour, so a broken nail won't ruin your fresh spring mani.
