Nail Trends: The Shades We’re Coveting This Season


It’s time to put down the berry-hued polish and switch up your nail shade for the new season, because spring’s new ‘it’ colours are here and our fingers are already dancing in sheer joy.

Whether it’s soft, cool pastels or a slick of delicate nude to give nails a healthy, natural look, a subtle touch of colour is the way to go.

Here are some of our favourites…

Powery purple
Lavender is undoubtedly one of the hottest nail shades for spring and this glossy polish from Rimmel is the perfect on-trend powdery hue.
Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine by Rita Ora in Go Wild-er-ness, £2.99 at Boots

Mint green
Colour your nails healthy with a coat of this minty fresh shade. Nailberry’s L’oxygéné collection is totally breathable, thanks to the innovative technology that allows air and moisture to pass through the polish, resulting in stronger, healthier nails. We’re obsessed.

Pared-back nude
This beautifully peachy, orange nude is the ideal shade to uplift your skin tone.

Sky blue
Add an almost-opaque skycloud shimmer to your talons, it’s a great way to create a fresh palette for the sunny weather.

Free of toxins, this quick-dry neon pastel represents everything spring to us.
