News | | 4 Comments

Having perfectly coloured nails each season is such an easy way to work SS13’s hottest trends. There are some beautiful shades to choose from, and, like lipstick, polishes are a super affordable way of sneaking some colour into your current winter wardrobe. The palette is vast for the warmer months this year ranging, from bold brights to fleshy nudes – meaning there is an ideal shade for every occasion. Here’s a look at our Top 10 Nail Polish Shades for Spring/Summer 2013

Chanel polishes are famed for their thorough colour coverage and are always a sell-out hit with beauty devotees and fashion mavens. We recommend you try Emprise this SS13 for the perfect nude with just a hint of pink.


With bright-green shades stalking the SS13 catwalks, as seen at Stella McCartney, this garden-green from Essie will be the perfect accessory to your summer outfits. The brand offers long-lasting and bold colour – just what’s needed with this vibrant shade.


Coral nail polish is a must for the summer months, and remember: the brighter the better! This Lancôme shade is ideal and would look great on toes too for a summer getaway. The formula offers a high-shine finish, too.

A hot look at the Haider Ackermann SS13 show was electrifying purple shades. We love this limited-edition NARS polish inspired by Andy Warhol and available at Selfridges. It’s perfect with either a high-shine or matte top coat – why not try both for completely different looks.
