The coolest nail colours you need for spring

The coolest nail colours you need for spring

It’s official: we’re obsessing over nail polishes as much as platforms, pinafore dresses and anything else wardrobe-worthy this spring.

Thanks in most part to Chanel, the colour we wear on our nails is as important as the lipstick we’re sporting and the hairstyle we’re rocking – and we, for one, can’t help but cast our eyes over the palette everyone’s painting on theirs.

Since it’s the easiest way to update your look or wear a print without spending a fortune or offending your friends, we’ve compiled a list of the coolest nail colours you need to keep on your toes this spring.

From cool corals and punchy peaches to powder-soft blues and wow-worthy yellows, see our pick of the prettiest polishes around and get ready to lacquer up loud…

 

Yellows
It may seem risque, but thanks to Chanel, yellow is the coolest colour to be drenching your digits. Surprisingly wearable, pick something warm like the luxury label’s Mimosa, which packs a punch but has a creamy canary accent.

Corals
Whether it’s a piercing pillar-box red, a tangy tomato or a pretty peach, corals are the cute-cool colours that crop up every summer, not least because they look great with a tan.

Blues
Blues don’t have to be frosty – in fact, they’re quite the cute colour for spring festivities. Less bright than last season’s candy blues, this summer is all about powdery, corn flower shades for a feminine touch with an off-the-cuff cool.
