Trend to try: French manicure 2.0
If you’re bored of a regular French mani, paint on a layer of white polish over your half-moons to mimic healthy-looking nails.
Trend to try: red
French actress Adele Exarchopoulos opted for a classic wine-hue on medium-length nails to match her intricately-printed gown for this red carpet event.
Trend to try: silver
Match your sparkly arm candy with a glittery silver mani. Keep the look modern by painting this on short, rounded nails that’ll let your jewellery shine.
Trend to try: bone
If you’ve got olive skin, contrast a light, bone-coloured nail polish to instantly look more polished.
Trend to try: rose
If you’re wearing a pastel gown and a large coloured ring, pare the rest of your look back with a pink mani that will just go with everything.
Trend to try: glitter ombre
Amp up the party-vibes on your neutral manicure by dabbing a glittery nail polish in a similar tone to your outfit, just on the tips of your nails.
Trend to try: red
Wearing a plain outfit? Dress up your look with long, red nails that are sure to steal the show.
Trend to try: rose and silver
Here’s a style that’s impressive, yet really easy to achieve at home. Go for this French mani with a twist by painting on a rosy nail polish, and follow with a swipe of silver just at the tips for a hint of glitz.
