As the mercury soars, the fashion radar quivers with anticipation of fresh summer trends.
Our stylish inquisition brings us to a gloriously flirtatious decision in this tirade of temperatures – Pink as your base nail color with Blue Swirls weaved in for dramatic effect.
The sassy pastiche of hues channels a vibrant aesthetic, perfect for a summer day fête or a lazy pool-side soirée.
The Road to Choosing the Perfect Pink and Blue
Choosing a shade of pink for your summer palette should, as Christian Dior himself advised, ‘recreate the allure of a healthy glow’.
What you’re aiming for is a pink tone that complements your skin.
Those with warm undertones can opt for peony or coral pinks, while cooler complexions might gravitate towards rose or ballet-slipper shades.
But the canvas, albeit important, is only half the artistry. The striking blue swirls bring in the drama.
The ideal shade of blue draws inspiration from our own Reese Witherspoon who quipped, “I don’t believe in perfection. I just believe in the charm of imperfection”.
The key here is to embrace shades of blue that may not be perfect but are charmingly you, adding a whimsical touch to the pink base.
Your blue could be the regal azure of the Mediterranean seas or the icy Arctic, or maybe the sapphire cobalt that Queen B (aka Beyoncé) herself is seen flaunting.
Five Pink and Blue Swirl Nail Combinations We Suggest
Now let’s explore five inspiring nail combinations we suggest that flawlessly capture the essence of summer days:
1. Coral Cove
Start with a coral-pink base. Add swirls of royal blue, and you have a visual riff on a seaside sunset – part regal, part boho-chic.
2. Turquoise Twist
The turquoise blue swirls on a subtle rose-pink base are reminiscent of clear, sparkling waters set against a summer sky, a perfect nod to a breezy summer day.
3. Frosty Fuchsia
Set against a fuchsia base, icy blue swirls lend a bold, unapologetic ‘frost queen meets summer flowers’ look, channeling a punchy, Rihanna-esque vibe.
4. Sapphire and Blush
Get inspired by the sophisticated mix of the blush-pink base with swirls of deep sapphire. It’s as though royalty decided to summer on the French Riviera.
5. Baby Blue on Baby Pink
For an innocent and playful vibe, combine baby blue swirls on a baby pink base. This duo is for those summer days when you want to channel your inner Taylor Swift.
