French Manicure

Your hands are always on show and one of the best ways of looking well put together is to have manicured nails with a complimentary shade of nail varnish. My favourite for daytime is a French Manicure. Needless to say it doesn’t happen often as I have to get a professional to do it.

If your budget doesn’t run to regular professional manicures then make sure you nails are kept reasonably short and well filed. There are so many shades of nail varnish on the market making a choice can be difficult. Pale or dark? Pink or blue?

Brilliant summer colour

I am a big fan of Chanel nail varnish. They always have a great range of colours and the varnish lasts – unlike some of the cheaper brands. Orange and corals look really good in the summer and combine easily with other colours.

Chanel – ‘May’

If you are a bit of a traditionalist then a soft but bright pink will work for you. Or you may want something with more zing as in the colour below.

Chanel – ‘Tentation’

Because there is often a tendency to wear lighter, brighter colours in the summer the introduction of darker, deeper polishes can have real impact.

Whatever colour you choose please ensure you use a good quality hand cream and ALWAYS remove chipped varnish. You do don’t you?
