Darker tones will forever swing around once the cold weather – and pumpkin spice – arrives. No doubt inspired by the Treatwell Festive Mani (ahem), navy is 2018’s darker shade of choice. A slight lift from black, it’s versatile, and looks great with 99% of your festive wardrobe. Blue Eyeshadow – a CND shellac shade – “has been surprisingly popular, as well as other dark blue shades like Blue Moon and Winter Nights” says Nail Club at Skinnydip London. ColourRiotNails, the mani spot in Shoreditch, back it up too, calling out CND’s Burgundy Mist, Dark Scarlet, and Midnight Blue as November’s sought-after shades.
These are the three most popular manicure colours to choose right now (according to the pros)
The facts. A gel mani lasts around two weeks. It’s three weeks to Christmas. Book yours now and it’ll be ready for a refresh right before the big day (your next one will last ‘til 2019 – scary). The hard bit? Picking a colour. Like the toss up between tea and coffee, red or white, Ant and Dec – it’s almost impossible to pick a favourite. That’s when expert advice comes in handy. We’re sharing the expert intel, because it’s Christmas – a time for giving. To help you choose your next nail colour, here they are, the most-booked colours of right now.
Spoiler: according to Nail Club at Skinnydip London – “with the winter months setting in, we’re seeing a return to the classics, from navy blues, to nudes, and pillar box reds”.
