I Heart Quirky Nail Polish Colours

Hey girls, do you like my grey nail polish?

I would never have thought of grey and nails as being a good combo. Grey can often be thought of as more drab than fab. But think of all the great grey stuff: kittens, silvery rain-slicked pavements, your grandparents’ hair. Grey is a cool colour and it was fun to break free from the usual nail colour suspects (pink! red!) and go for something different.

It’s fun to take a beauty risk and shake up your manicure. Here are my top four quirky nail colours:

Four different nail polish colours: yellow, white, green, metallic

  1. Canary: It’s bold for summer, it’s sunny, it’s optimistic, it’s the colour you want to wear when you’re enjoying the sand and the surf. I guarantee it will make you smile.

  2. Green: any shade is okay by me as it’s one of my favourite colours. There’s a green for every mood. Try a pastel nail if you want to be summertime sweet, a hit of fluoro lime if you want your nails to be loud and proud, or a darker forest green if you want to be a bit mysterious.

  3. Metallics: Bling bling! Silver and gold nails are like jewels for your fingertips, but surprising shades of colour done in metallic are also as cool as it gets.

  4. White: A bit stark, a bit bleak? Nah. A white nail is your ultimate canvas for nail art. You can do all kinds of things against white – one really cool thing to try is to get some Sharpies and do some graffiti-style doodles, then seal in the art with a clear topcoat.

What's YOUR fave unexpected nail colour?

XOXO Claire
