Temperatures are rising, festivals are being planned, holidays are getting booked and you might be lucky enough to be heading on a cheeky spring break. So, while you’re digging out your skirts, shaving your legs and packing away your winter warmers, spare a thought for those chipped nails and lovingly restore them with one of these beaut nail colours…


First up in our ultimate spring/summer nail polish collection is pink. The colour of the moment, it’s no surprise it’s at the top of our list! Don’t overdo it with a garish, bright or hot pink this summer – it’s just too obvious. Keep it soft, classy and neutral for a super chic finish. OPI’s Nail Envy Strength in Colour Nail Strengthener Lacquer in Bubble Bath is the perfect shade, while the formula is designed to strengthen weak nails.


A classic red nail is always on trend, but red has never been more summer-appropriate than with this Nails Inc beauty. Select All Fired Up for a watermelon red shade that brings a fruity zing to a timeless colour. Ideal peeping out of open-toed shoes or for dipping in the pool on your jollies – it’s a real winner!


Pantone colour of the year, green has had a revamp for 2017. Not just your khakis, green has broken into the mainstream after being an unpopular colour since forever. Go green this spring/summer with this stunning Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Crazy Times. Part of their roaring 20’s collection, it’s a deep, turquoise jade-green infused with platinum, making your nails the only accessory you need on the beach.


Grey has been the neutral of the moment for as long as we can remember. Slowly creeping into your home decor, wardrobe and scarf collection, it’s now taking over your manicure too. Embrace Rimmel London’s Super Gel Nail Polish in Punk Rock for a fresh edge to your favourite dark mani. Boasting a salon-quality finish and up to 14-days of gel-like colour, it’s a super striking look we love!

Another colour we’ve gone mad for of late is blue. Blue mascara and eyeliner are new summer staples for a quirky and bold alternative to classic black cat eye. Get the same pop of colour on your nails with Rich Girls & Po-Boys from their New Orleans collection. It’s a beautiful blue with a summery vibe that’s perfect poking out of your flip flops of clutching your margarita.


Metallics are in! Whatever the colour or shade, if it shimmers it’s a winner. Just the ticket for injecting a bit of sparkle into your look, the benefit of a metallic nail is that if it chips it’s much less obvious. Go for a light shade such as 55 Angel Nails from Max Factor’s Glossfinity collection for a perfect pearlescent finish, that lasts up to 7 days!


A super easy win, whether on your nails or your lips, nude is an instant sophistication update. Chic and stylish, we love this Deborah Lippmann set for a full spectrum of nudes and pinks! Presented in a feminine rose printed box, it’s a truly beautiful treat.
