Chic block nail colours for summer 2017
In this week's blog, we are not looking at pattern trends, but the simplest block colour options for elegant, chic nails. The best way to wear block colour is with gel polish that brings out the best of your chosen shade. From summer pastels to bright orange and the Pantone Colour of the Year 2017, read on to discover what colour you should be wearing on your nails this coming summer.
What offers a positive pop of colour better than orange? This simple, child-like colour will bring out the young at heart in everyone, plus it goes fantastically with a tan. Go for a tangerine shade of orange, and as the year progresses to late summer, perhaps a more autumnal shade to go with your autumn wardrobe. Orange is a great colour when it comes to gel nails, as the lack of chipping is important with such a strong colour choice.
Greenery: Pantone Colour of the Year 2017
The colour experts at Pantone release their colour of the year annually, just ahead of the new year. This colour signifies a general trend in fashion, interiors, beauty and in a way, the global mood. This year’s colour is 'Greenery', a vibrant bright, leafy shade of green that encapsulates early summer, serenity and tranquillity, something we all need after the emotional and political roller coaster that characterised 2016. Greenery by chance, looks gorgeous on nails, especially teamed with this summer’s popular botanical print tops and dresses.
More neutral shades of soft pink or a very light nude colour are becoming really popular, perhaps in response to an ever more unusual palette and pattern choice for nails, some ladies are choosing to get back to something a bit more natural looking. Perfect for summer and for casual days out, the office and when you simply want the natural look. Opt for a full coat of soft pink rather than a French manicure for an up-to-date look.
