2012 NAIL COLOURS
While rainbow brights are still going strong, understated hues are making a comeback. “Soft neutrals, iridescent pastels and sheer colours were all over the runways for spring/summer 2012,” says Biria. “Go for unexpected shades in a sheer wash like mint green or tangerine.”
Natural instinct: Pastel pinks will always be in style, but for a new twist on neutral nails, look for shades that are closer to your skin tone. Think milky beiges, creamy nudes and soft lattes.
Green light: While last season was all about deep, dark hunter green, this year the palette is lightening up. Pale pistachio, mint and lime-green shades deliver a hit of colour without the intensity.
Orange crush: According to the forecasters at Pantone, Tangerine Tango – a punchy orange – is the shade of the year, and nails are the easiest place to wear this bold hue. But the season also brings an array of pretty peaches for those less daring.
