Traditional French with a clear glitter top coat
After getting a traditional manicure, spice it up a little with a clear glitter top coat to give your nails a subtle shine. A soft pink glitter or gold go beautifully with the natural pink base coat, and when paired with matching rings and bracelets can look super feminine and stylish.
A glossy black nail tip
Out of the box and oh-so parfait for those who love the colour black, this modern take on a classic style will turn heads. For the best effect, we recommend a gloss rather than a matte black on the tip as a matte can dull down the nail when matched with your shiny nude undercoat.

Mono-colour in matte and shine
For those looking for a single colour on every nail, using a pairing of gloss and matte finish polishes can create a super interesting effect. We love a strong silver or black colour, but whatever you feel will suit this style flawlessly.

Traditional French with a Glitter Strip
Indulging in our love of all things shiny, this cheeky design involves a small strip of glitter tape being placed between the soft pinks and the crisp white. Perfect for a subtle but elegant day look, you cannot go wrong with this twist on the classic french design.

Traditional French with Glitter Strips and a Feature Nail
A one up on the glitter strip, getting your ring finger as a feature nail is for those who love to sparkle even more.
As the weather warms up, warm up your nail tips with cute colours to make your fingers pop. Aim for a nude base coat, and then if you’re feeling brave get a different colour for each nail. A selection of pastel colours works best, but for a real surprise why not consider getting neon nail tips?
Instead of a crisp, white, clean tip, the glitter gradient involves just that: a soft gradient of glitter beginning at the tip of your nail and trickling downwards.
