Nail Your Look With These Latest Trends
There’s nothing to make you feel glam and ready to face the world like a fresh mani, right mamas?! Nails reveal a lot about a person: the shape, the length, the colour and choice of nail art all hint at someone’s style and personality! Much of the time ours say ‘I’m a mama who has no time to go to the nail bar’ but sometimes we do get those precious few hours to ourselves to indulge in a mani/pedi and feel semi-human again! Whether you’re going out for a special occasion or just want to up your style game, what’s going on your fingertips is more important than ever – and these nail trends will help you to feel a little more glam.

Adding a “cool mama” edge is as simple as nailing the unicorn nails. Rainbow stripes or unicorn nails are just the thing this summer. When opting for this look on your nails – start with the most sheer and light color first, and choose 4 or 5 different shades to create this look. Having a futurist, unpredictable finish on your nails can be the wild card element in your look, mamas! And we guarantee your little ones will think you’re the coolest too.
In everything from sandals to swimwear, metallic shades continue to be huge this season too. Go for shades of bronze, gold or a chrome effect silver on your nails for some serious style points. Nars’ Amarapura is the perfect striking silver for this, or, try mixing two colours to create an ombre effect, for an even more daring take on the trend.
To achieve this look, paint the tips of your nails with a block colour (we personally love it with a blood red or bright pink as the base!) and then paint over your entire nail with a metallic shade. Essie, Good as Gold is amazing for achieving this cool look.
With temperatures soaring this summer, we want everything to be easy and breezy, with a touch of sophistication. A look that’s classy and doesn’t require too much maintenance is what we’re after! Think neatly trimmed nails in barely-there shades, such as the palest pinks and softest greys, or go one step further with just a slick of top coat for an easy, chic and polished result. The simplicity of a fuss free manicure should not be underestimated for lifting your spirits.
Coral is a bit more ‘poppy; than pastel pinks or oranges. Plus the vibe they give out is super cheerful and fun (anything that adds happiness in our lives, is a hit with us, mamas!) and work well on most skin tones.
“Go bold or go home”, yes mama – this season is all about bold statements. Neon nails made an appearance on the Fenty catwalk where models wore bright statement hues in pink, orange, yellow and blue, chosen to match or clash with their accessories. Bright colours might be a way to say ‘look at me!’, and we can’t deny the added boost of confidence these nails give us.
