This season’s trend for nails is anything but conventional, which cream based hue will you choose to take you in to September?
By Dmitri Ruwan
Rather than opt for bright shades typically associated with the summer, let designers soak your finger tips in colours that bring to mind the mesmerising courts of Versailles circa Marie Antoinette. Shades of cream and barely-there pink to minted opal and iced coffe crème are the current hues of choise. The softer approach to nail shades comes at a time when runway pieces are becoming more enduring – form over function and adaptable from season to season. And the same goes for backstage beauty as the colour industry follows the catwalks, offering pastelised shades that are seasonally classic, summing up the best of the shows combined. Dior’s Tra-la-la nail varnish is perfect for either a sun kissed day at the flower gardens or an autumn dinner party, while the multi-functional Cafelite Grey presented by L’Oreal works from day to night devoid of season. For a touch of Parisian exotica try Chanel Paradiso.
