Arica Carpenter, Brand Manager for Star Nail’s – Eco Nail Systems and Cuccio Colours (available Summer 2012) tells us her picks for the hottest nail colours comingthis summer.Blues have always been my go to color of fashion- it’s so versatile that this color can go with any bright color or any outfit. It is neutral enough that it can be dressed up or down.
Periwinkle Dusk contains an undertone of purple that is great for darker skin tones. This is a classic color that comes back season after season. This color works great with oranges, yellows and even corals.
Caribbean Mint is a cool tone that works perfect with lighter skin tones. This is a neutral color that can be combined with a bright color to give it a POP! Try mixing this color with gold nail art to give it a sophisticated yet fun approach to a Spring/Summer set of nails. Intense dark blues such as Yacht Club by Eco Nail Systems is a great jewel tone color that is a blend of royal blue with a hint of metallic; this shade brings a sense of style and class to any set of nails.
