Nails #NailGoals

Here at South Beach, we like to look as good as we feel. And when we’re rocking our favourite bikini or one-piece, it’s important to have our hair on fleek, our skin on form, and our nails on point. Here we bring you the latest SS16 nail trends from New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week so you can nail the look like a polished pro. Get the hottest SS16 nails before you hit the beach this summer…

METALLIC STRIPE NAILS

As seen on the Phillip Lim catwalk and the Sophie Theallet catwalk, nails are gracefully garnished with a simple metallic stripe; transforming the glitzy trend of metallics into something much more minimalistic. Choose a muted or neutral basecoat and use the Barry M Nail Art Pen in Silver (£4.99) to create clean vertical or horizontal lines.

ARTY MONOCHROME

Monochrome has gone soft this season with delicate styles and artistic designs. Nanette Lepore runway models had black and white brushstroke nails whilst models at Marissa Webb SS16 sported elegant achromatic stripes. Whatever you do with your monochrome polish this season, don’t just colour block because there are so many cool, chic and creative ways to get the look with your black and white nail colours. Use the Barry M Nail Art Pen in Black (£4.99) to achieve intricate patterns.

SUBTLE GLITTER NAILS

Glitter is back for spring/summer but this time, it’s soft and sensual. Choose a clear base or a neutral undercoat and create a chic ombre effect with your glitter nail varnish, just coat your tips, or opt for an ultra-thin layer just to add a subtle sparkle. This Models Own Hed Kandi Nail Varnish in Disco Heaven (£5.00) is perfect but remember, don’t go too heavy on the brush strokes. Subtlety is everything here.

BRIGHTLY COLOURED TIPS

Inspired by fashion’s French Revival, this look is all about bold colour block against neutral tones. Pioneered by typical primary colours but you can choose tropical brights like pinks, greens and oranges too. Go for a clear bottom coat and then paint your tips with your favourite bold nail polish, like this Models Own Tropical Nail Varnish in Coral Reef (£5.00).
