We’ve all noticed winter is already here, right? Getting out of bed is more challenging than ever and going out with layers and layers of clothing is a must. Changing wardrobes with the seasons is something we are used to, so why not do the same with our nails? In past years, a winter mani was all about dark hues, but traditions aside, this year, the winter blues are coming in fresh with different trends for your DIY home manicure or to perfect that salon mani.
We can’t agree more with Emma Forrest from BUFF Studios in Melbourne when she pitched us two of her fave colours to fight against the winter blues:
Bright, bold, Barbie pink is really having its moment; having been all over the international fashion runways, it packs a powerful punch to liven up an otherwise neutral outfit, and pink nails have the power to make anyone feel good!
Green is one of our most requested colours heading into the cooler months. Khaki is an alternative to beige and deep dark jungle green is an interesting swap in place of a rich espresso or merlot shade. We think this one will be around for quite some time.
BUFF Studios know what they’re talking about! We love those shades, but we’ve also got a few more in mind – here are our recommendations to lift you from that cold-weather slump.
