Now that fashion month is nearly out of the way it’s time to forget the blue eyeliner and heavy kohl of autumn/winter 2014 and get back to spring. So, what’s the quickest way to give your outfit and attitude a springtime update? Bright, bold nails. We spoke to nail expert Sarah Davies at MILK Mobile Beauty about the best way to do it...
Nearly nude nails are big this spring. Go classic with subtle pink or barely there beige. Not only is this look super glam it is also timeless and sophisticated. Impeccable nudes were on display at the S/S 14 shows for Tom Ford, Temperley, Oscar de la Renta and Matthew Williamson. Rock this flawless look with super groomed short nails and add a glossy top coat for understated elegance.
Vibrant nails are the perfect accessory for spring and this year primary colours look set to replace last year’s neons. Think lego blocks in red, green, yellow and orange. Crazy colours were seen on the spring runways at Prabal Gurung, Peter Som and Burberry nails, where a softer yellow wash completed the perfect spring look.
Don’t panic if you can’t be parted with your deeply delicious winter shades, this trend will continue well into the spring. Keep your digits on trend and super groomed, with forest greens, rich blues and midnight black. Wear this look with crisp whites and a few of the subtle hues that dominated the spring runways to really work this daring look.
This season is all about an updated twist on the classic French mani. Holmes and Yang put their spin on it by inverting this timeless look, going for black tips and half moons, and diagonal slivers of blue on sheer nails, Things were even more abstract over at Jean Pierre Braganza where nail edges were decorated with black vertical stripes. Very edgy.
Nothing oozes timeless style like crisp, classic, clean white, and bright white nails made quite the statement on spring runways like Nanette Lepore and Band of Outsiders. Meanwhile, Charlotte Ronson gave this retro look a modern twist with a sprinkle of nail art on a solid white base.
It might not look like it just yet but spring is on its way. Book a visit from a MILK Mobile nail technician now and get ready to embrace the new season with one of these gorgeous looks .
