Mani Monday: Midnight Fancy (because summer’s not just about coral)
By Emma Grace Bailey

Summer doesn’t necessarily mean bright nails from May to September. Experiment with something a little more dramatic, says WGSN Beauty Assistant Emma Grace Bailey

Aug 03, 2015


Yes, it’s summer but are you obliged to coat your nails in a popping bright or pure pastel for the entire season? Not on your life. There’s something incredibly chic about accessorising your holiday wardrobe with a luxurious dark polish…

What: An odd choice for summer perhaps, but this deep Vert Obscur hue from Chanel packs a whole lot of punch with a single coat.

Why: We’re moving away from the pastels and brights of summer flings to the deeper, more mysterious lacquers of midnight blue, jet black and bottle green. It’s still summer, just a little bit darker.

Cons: Be careful on application – too much and you’ll lose the greenish undertones.
