You’re already planning to replenish your spring wardrobe with tripes, florals, and nautical details. Now, it’s time to think about updating your manicure, too. The Peppi Blog is bringing your fingertip forecast straight from the runways.
THE TREND: MODERN METALLIC INSPIRED by Philip Lim Spring/Summer ’17
WHY WE LOVE IT: When worn over a neutral lacquer, a rose-gold French, simple silver line, or textured 14-karat tip is a refined way to pull off a precious metal manicure. For the best transition from a winter white look, add a metallic overlay by brushing a platinum polish on top as seen at 3.1 Phillip Lim. The result: easy, elegant, and elevated.
THE TREND: COLOUR BLOCKING INSPIRED by Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 17
WHY WE LOVE IT: Bright-coloured pieces were all over the runways and this year nails follow suit. The quickest way to get into spring mode is with dots, stripes, and geometric patterns bold contrasting hues. Just take a loo at Jeremy Scott’s vibrant, poppy fingertips to get in the mood.
THE TREND: GRAPHIC FRENCH INSPIRED by Creatures of Comfort Spring/Summer ’17
WHY WE LOVE IT: The French manicure continues to be completely reimagined for 2017. Multicolor tips on the Creatures of Comfort catwalk felt fresh and fun. Diagonally painted blue edges, bold black and white, and thin ribbons of red also prove how far this technique has come. One tip of utmost importance: be sure to coat the base of your nail.
