10 of the best trending nail polish shades for spring


10 of the best trending nail polish shades for spring

Be it earth, wind or fire, take your manicure cues from Mother Nature this coming season. Gentle, soft shimmers and subtle neutrals are on the agenda. Want something that makes more of a statement? It’s all about more dramatic hues of grass, flame and onyx.

Setting off a trend that has sent an understated pearlescent nail finish rocketing up the ‘most-wanted’ looks list, Hailey Beiber’s ‘Glazed Donut manicure’  will likely have a lasting effect over this spring and summer.

While a salon set is still desirable, the ease of a home manicure has considerable appeal. Luxury brands are embracing the possibilities of nail design and colour with on-trend hues to complement the season’s fashion both on the runway and for us to recreate in the comfort of our living rooms. Top quality tools and hand and nail treatments that help nourish our tips to their strongest and most resilient are abundant, it’s easier than ever to get a flawless finish or try your hand at a simple and chic version of nail art.

Inspired by the elements

L-R: Dior Vernis in RedRed; Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer in Bang The Dream; Gucci Vernis à Ongles Nail Polish in Melinda Green; Les Mains Hermès Nail Enamel in Orange Brûlé; Max Factor Nailfinity in Backstage.

Ingredients are also getting a long awaited update. Of note? Nature Strong, OPI’s first natural-origin vegan nail lacquer, uses plant-based ingredients like sugarcane, wheat and corn, and comes in a 20% post-consumer recycled material crafted bottle. Sally Hansen’s Good. Kind. Pure. range is also a plant-based, 10-free, 100% vegan formula.

Even polish removers are ditching harsh chemicals like acetone in favour of more gentle alternatives. Pax Non Acetone Nail Polish Remover includes Broccoli seed extract, high in essential fatty acids that help to hydrate and deeply moisturise nail beds and surrounding skin as well as rosehip seed oil and vitamins B & E to encourage length and resilience.

Soft and shimmering
