Sunny Shades

Just in time for that sunny summer weather, we’ve checked in with the experts to see what new and hot in nail colours.


“Fun, fresh, and colourful are the buzz words for summer fashion,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI executive vice president and artistic director. “Add colour splashes throughout your wardrobe – on short, filmy dresses, ruffled floral prints and high-heeled sandals. Accessorize with fingertips and toes painted in rich, trendy hues that look as good with your favourite bikini or your new strapless sundress.”

OPI has the perfect collection of summertime colours, four primary colours — Banana Bandanna, If the Fuchsia Fits, I’m his Coral-Friend and Sea? I Told You! — that are sure to make any outfit pop.

Keep the length neat and tidy, and the shape du jour is still the squoval — a cross between a square and oval. For a summertime treat that is reminiscent of your childhood, try Chanel’s new Orange Fizz, a delicious take on the classic Creamsicle. Dior’s Lychee Reflects and Bubble Gum will add bright sparkle to any outfit.

    Essie has a line of mini samplers in neon colours I’m dying to try. The pack is under $20.
