nail trend


Nude nails is a big trend in around the world we saw them in so many shows for Spring Summer 2013. On recent shoots I have been asked to do a nude nail especially if there is a lot going on with the make up and clothes. There are so many brands and nude colours to choose from. If you read my Nails Inc post recently they have the neon and nude collection with 3 nude colours from caramel to taupe. So following on from that I wanted to share my nude nail polish picks:

I was sent this gorgeous Nails Inc collection to review. Two of the biggest nail trends neon and nude have been incorporated into the Nails Inc Collection. With 3 nude colours and 3 neon colours named after London Streets. I love the quality of the polishes  and to keep the polish on longer make sure you use a base coat and top coat. I tested the neon pink colour for my Elle Magazine SA Shoot and loved it will post the pic next month when the issue is out. Here are the colours:

1) Nottinghill – Pink Neon

2)Portobello – Coral Neon

3) Westbourne Grove – Neon yellow/orange

4) Jermyn Street – Perfect Taupe

5) Porchester Square – Muted Mushroom

6) Cadogan Square – Classic Camel


Here is the colours on my nails:

My favourite colours are the Cadogan Square its a beautiful nude colour and for the brights the Portobello. This collection is great for all skin tones and the nudes are great for winter and the neon’s perfect for summer. The collection retails for R225 in SA available in selected Edgar’s and Red Square Stores and if you are UK based it retails at £22.

Hope you enjoy the post. x


I am loving the matt nail trend and it is so easy to create. Take the nail polish colour you want to use. First apply a base coat, once dry apply 2 coats of your desired colour. Wait until the nails are completely dry otherwise it won’t work. Once the nails are dry buff each nail to make it matt. Then take a top coat and apply to the tip of each nail. That’s it!
